This paper is dealing with a very sensitive aspect of today’s environment within an entity: the Leadership and the new challenges of the new trends, ideas, and realities regarding the human factor, both from both the viewpoint of the management and the employees. The aim of the research is to analyze the role of the Leadership within corporate activities, different from what is known today by the syntagma “politically correctness”. An analysis of the literature in this domain based upon empirical observations through our own practice experiences leads to the verdict that, in this case, the corporate Leadership must be fair, as balanced as possible, empathic and pursuing the main goal(s) of the entity or organization, i.e., using skills and abilities to capacitate all employees, regardless of their gender, religion, beliefs, looks to reach the goal(s) in the benefit of corporation/organization, but also in the benefit of the employees and the environment. The methodological tools of the study are analytical and comparative methods, methods of logical generalization and scientific abstraction. Based on the analysis, it was concluded that the new approaches in theory of the firm are based on the qualities of the CEOs, how must be the behavior of the leaders, the importance of X and Y Economic models and, even, the impact of social and psychological aspects on Economics. In fact, it’s about the humanization of the entire management and the well-functioning of the entity is necessary to be based on human factors, but in a such manner, by training, by motivation, in order to capacitate all staff, all employees, no matters differences, to obtain the goals established and to gain benefits both for employees, management and for the firm/corporation in its relationships with the internal environment, but also with the natural and business environments. The results obtained can be useful for the owners of the enterprise and HR managers in terms of understanding the importance of leadership qualities in the successful functioning of the company and the formation of an understanding of the advisability of attracting a leader to work in various positions within the organization.
