  • Personal Behavioral Theories– Presented by Ingrid Curtis
  • The behavioral theory is a leadership theory that considers the observable actions and reactions of leaders and followers in a given situation. STARS ARE CREATED, NOT BORN.
  • The use of these tools helps to identify the leader’s style and the responses that they receive from their employees or subordinates. These tools are used to determine the effectiveness of their behavioral style of leadership.
  • Strengths :It broadened the scope of leadership research to include the behaviors of leaders and what they do in various situations.A wide range of studies on leadership style validates and gives credibility to the basic tenets of this approach.The style approach has ascertained that a leader’s style is composed of primarily two major types of behavior: task and relationship. The style approach is heuristic: it provides us a broad conceptual map that is worth using in our attempts to understand the complexity of leadership. Weakness : The research on styles has not adequately shown, how leaders´ styles are associated with performance outcomes (Yukl 1994). It has failed to find a universal style of leadership that could be effective in almost every situation .It implies that the most effective leadership style is the high task and high relationship style .(Blake and McCanse 1991) when the research findings provide only limited support for a universal high-high style (Yukl 1998).
  • It is said that, “the test of a leader lies in the reaction and response of his followers. He should not have to impose authority. Bossiness in itself never made a leader. He must makehis influence felt by example and the instilling of confidence in his followers. The greatness of a leader is measured by the achievements of the led. This isthe ultimate test of his effectiveness.GEN Omar Bradley
  • I would define leadership as influencing people by providing purpose, direction, and motivation, while operating to accomplish the mission and improve the organization.
  • Use of Behavioral Theory for Task Behavior, which helps employees accomplish goals. Relationship behavior is useful for helping employees feel comfortable with themselves, others and the situation.
  • Thank you for your time. Are there any questions?
