A true outcome of leader efforts is not visible in the mere sales, output or performance, but in the form of manpower i.e. development. A leader may not innovate or research for new things but definitely provides a
creative vision to search for new pastures. The function of leadership from this point of view is to build
manpower and develop appropriate successors who continue with the mission and follow vision. A leader develops
winning attitude and a culture that works for excellence. Leader is a reflection of institution in a visible form. What
for the institution stands can be understood by knowing how the leader response, reacts, acts and thinks. The true
purpose of leadership is institution building. Therefore the most important task before the leader is to set the
process of institution building in an action.

Keywords: Leadership, Institution building, the purpose of leadership, hurdles in institution building, leadership function for institution building.
