LEADERSHIP LESSONS

Leadership theories

Leadership theories has helped researcher and analysts in analyzing the impact of various

leadership styles on the overall organizational objectives. Management of work has faced various

eras which shaped them in order to reach to the current situations. Leadership theories created a

valid impact on the growth and development of organization. The concept of leadership has been

shaping form 19h century and is successfully guiding management how to manage the work.

Various significant leadership theories which helped in developing current management era are

mentioned henceforth.

Trait Theory: This leadership theory was defined in 1930s to 1940. The theory argues

that an effective leader possess certain well defined attributes and qualities which proves

him to be an effective leader within the society. Trait theories helped to identify traits and

qualities (for example, integrity, empathy, assertiveness, good decision-making skills,

and likability) that were helpful when leading others (Leadership Theories, 2015). This

theory considered all the external attributes of a person which helped in leading a set of

people. This theory was criticized on the basis of its rigidity. Various authors the

philosophers questioned the applicability of theory in various situations. Moreover, the

theory was overunned as it has no valid impact on various situation factors that society,

group of organizations faced. Moreover, the theory was qualitative and ignored various

internal attributes and presence of skills and tact to deal with the given situation.

Behavioral theory:In such type of theory it mainly focuses upon the behavior of leaders.

For example, it is essential for leaders to involve within the team and formulate decision

making power in order to motivate support and acceptance within firm. It involves

autocratic, democratic and laissez faire leaders. Autocratic leaders are required to make

decisions on their own without consulting with their team members (Lorinkova, Pearsall

and sims 2013 thus here leaders are required

and Sims, 2013). Thus, here leaders are required to make quick decisions therefore team

engagement is not done. Further, democratic leaders involve all the team members in

decision making so that best results can be attained. However, they face issues in

managing the team as different ideas are gathered. At the end, laissez faire leaders

possess the attribute that they do not interfere within team and allow individual to make

decisions on their own.

Contingency theory: Furthermore, such type of leadership theory has been currently used

by businesses. Apollo 13 undertakes contingency theory as it helps the leaders to make

quick decisions in regard to support the team. Such theory is also effective as it helps in

supporting the team to become more people oriented and not task oriented.

Power and influence theory- Such leadership theory is entirely different approach as it is

based on different ways that has been adopted by leaders such as power and influence.

However, such theory helps in accomplishing the things done and attain best results

within firm (Bains, 2009). It is another form of transaction leadership and provides

reward to people for their actions. Further, such leadership approach mainly focuses on

designing the tasks and reward structures. Also, it can be evaluated that such leadership

leadership in NASA helped various individuals involved in the process in attaining the set target
