In order to better understand which could be the best leadership theory that I could apply on my PMA, I have started reading more in depth around the leadership topic. To be honest, I found this a quite difficult task since I believe that it is almost impossible fully covering the topic only through the application of a single theory and, in addition, because the leadership execution varies from circumstance to circumstance. For instance, the leading traits needed during a crisis will be very different than the one required during an expansion phase.
Therefore, I probably think that combing more theories can help me in better understanding which the crucial skills for leading effectively are.
However, I would like to highlight that even though leading requires continuous adaptation and high flexibility, it is vital to remember that people are the only driver that guide this endless evolution process, thus, I strongly believe that in order to be effective leaders should always look for the personal and professional growth of their followers.
Based on this, today organisations need leaders that are able to expand and support team capabilities by creating an environment built on learning and curiosity and this will allow firms to nurture the desire for excellence among its members.
