Abstract: Leadership is not just about leaders, it is a unitary one, based on balance and which is often the success formula. It is well known that people is the most important resource of an organization. They represent a decisive factor in organizational success or failure. Although employers are aware of this, they do not always invest or make changes, ending up with a deadlock and facing serious problems. Motivation constitutes not only an important tool in the process of selfregulation, but also a driving force of psychological and human development. The purpose of the paper is to illustrate the importance of leadership in motivating employees. In order to reach this aim the authors conducted an exploratory research in the milling and bakery industry by using the questionnaire as a tool. The results show that motivation represents a factor of influence at the workplace and leaders should identify and meet employees’ needs.
