Leadership theories. PMA reflections.
There are many leadership styles, theories, approaches. Each of them emphasizes one or more of the leadership variables (L, F, S). However, I personally think, when piking the most important and effective elements of one theory and integrating it with the others, leader can be more effective. There is not good or bad leadership theory that I found during the research. The thing is that their appropriateness is dependent on the circumstances the company faces and the variables that are in the priority at the specific phase.
I again thought that first of moral beliefs and values of leader, followers and the company (culture) dictate the choice of the leadership theory, so as a leader you should be aware of the needs and objectives of all of them. For some companies authoritarian style can be effective, whereas for others laissez-faire will lead to great results, but make the third company fail.
