In today's agricultural world, full of multiple roles to which the subject must give answers, such as assuming commitments, responsibilities, makes people face every day more and more in contexts of uncertainty, highly stressful, which generates the need for leadership capable of guiding people, in each of the spaces where it develops. This also includes the family, schools, even organizations, whether public or private.

Managers of production units are responsible for the performance of these, which also includes their workers, because, in their role as leaders, they have the responsibility to guide them. In this sense, they must have certain competencies that distinguish them, in order to be a role model for the objectives they set.

In this sense, agri-leadership is fundamental in production units, as it must be able to manage the different situations that may arise. Therefore, this must be a leader, a term that, according to Shermerhorn (2006), states that "leadership is the process of inspiring others to work hard to achieve important tasks".

According to the above, it is necessary for the Agricultural Production Units (APU) to have leaders who are not only bosses, but who stimulate the improvement of workers' performance in order to achieve the strategic objectives. In addition to this, the people who make up the (APU) have their own individualities that, according to Pérez, Y. (2012) "the leader must tune in to the feelings of the people and channel them in an emotionally positive direction", which leads to maintaining interpersonal relationships that generate an empathetic environment where workers feel important.

Taking into account the above, the importance of having leaders in organizations is reflected, which is applicable to all sectors of the economy, that is to say, to all types of organizations, profit or non-profit.

Effective machinery in agro space can help in increasing the output result but many people do ignore this

greetings @mandato, your appreciation is very correct with a good machinery in the Production Unit, the result would be magnificent and productivity would increase. In the Venezuelan agricultural case there are good machines that help to massify the production but they are stopped for lack of spare parts and the UPA have been maintained moderately by the agroliderazgo that seek alternative solutions and encourage their workers to achieve the tasks set.
Thank you very much for your comments
