Leadership and Conciousness
From working on my PMA, part of the things I have understood is that for an effective result, leadership should be centred abround conciousness. You cannot always do it the way you knew before, and all the time you need to consider the values of the organisation , the team, and the people. Take instance the case of a situational leader, he is expected to be flexible and that definately requires conciousness and sensitivity. because he needs to be know when to switch to use each ledaership style ranging from directive, coaching, supporting to delegative. If this is said to be very efficient approach as claimed by most author, it means that such a leader should learn how to play those roles. I would want to believe that a leader is who was initially Authoritarian would find it hard to unconciously play the role of a Coach when the situation requires him except he is does it conciously. So switching between roles/styles does require a level a conciousness and I believe this can achieved by such a leader if he sets his mind to it.
