It is generally understood that great leaders aren’t born, they are developed. Everyone possesses fundamental leadership qualities in varying degrees. However, the commonly flat structure of organizations today and the evolving roles within the workforce has complicated the dynamics of leadership.
Among the various leadership styles, there are pros and cons to each, and situations often dictate when one might be most effective.
There are four key competencies that are essential for good leadership regardless of style.
Of the many leadership styles, transformational is often considered the most desirable.
A transformational leader is a strategic thinker with a vision who can inspire others to work toward a common goal. He or she is a consensus builder and a strong communicator driving the organization toward achievement and performance.
