Approaches vs Theories

Writing about web page #LeadershipandExcellence #Leader #MBE #LE #postmodule

Assessing the different types of theories and approaches to leadership can get somewhat confusing because we are studying different concepts of leadership. Some are theories about what kinds of leaderships there are, some are apporaches on what researchers think make a good leader, and some are leadership styles that leaders can implement.

So far I am learning that there are many different leadership styles that can be a leader can adopt in order to lead. Also the phenomenon of whether the skills of a leader is inherent or can be developed by a person. There are many theories suggesting both ideas. Namely the trait approach assumes that leaders are born with the qualities needed to lead and cannot be developed. On the other hand, there is also a lot of information supporting the idea of leadership development.

At this stage of my research, I am leaning towards the idea that leaders can be developed. My PMA will probably support this idea and delve further into the topic.
