I chose some of the leadership theories but noticed that not all of them gel together so well. There are some conflicts and some commonalities. In some cases the relationship betweem them is not clear. I think that there are a lot of theories and literature on ledership but to decide what's best for Waveriders I'll have to be subjective and take the points from different theories which I think are suitable for the Waveriders problem. It might be that I end up contradicting some of the points of the theories which I adopt but if it suits the problem then I'll adopt that. I think that during the module we were not taught in particular about the theories (all the exercises were experiential) as it is difficult to combine all the vast literature on leadership and because different leadership styles suit different people and work well in different situations. The combination of leadership theories would then mean that we try to take the best points out of the different theories that suit the particular situation of Waveriders and suit the assumptions we make about the character of the CEO and the Director.
