I am a little bit confused of my thoughts in my first blog entry of LE and what Paul’s said yesterday about leadership function. As I wrote earlier I thought that leadership is not dependent on situation, that leadership should be applicable to all situations. I am still not believe that leadership is linked to situation, despite that Paul said that it just my assumption. But in my opinion, if a person has leadership skills he wants to take a lead in every situation. If this function of leadership L = (L, gm, s) is right, then it is saying to us that for example, CEO of the company and leader as well could not be effective in every situation and we should not expect him to be leader in every situation, he could not be effective in another organization with different group members and in other environment. This function telling to me that leadership skills are not transferable, that they stick to a particular situationI do not believe that. When companies recruit people they search for leadership skills which are transferable, don’t they?
