 Great man theory assumes “great
leaders are born not made”.
 Portray great leaders are heroic,
mythic and destined to rise to
leadership when needed.
 leaders are exceptional people, born
with innate qualities, destined to lead.
 The gender issues were not on the
table
1. GREAT MAN THEORY
7-18
2. TRAIT THEORY OF LEADERSHIP
 Claims that people are born with inherited traits.
 People who make good leaders have the right (sufficient)
combination of traits.
 Assumes that there are distinctive physical and psychological
characteristics accounting for leadership effectiveness.
 Also assumed that a finite number of individual traits-intellectual,
emotional, physical, and other traits- of effective leaders could be
found.
 Focused on ‘what’ an effective leader is, not on ‘how’ to
effectively lead.

7-23
Shortcoming or Criticisms of Trait Theory
Not all leaders possess all of the traits
identified.
List of potentially important traits is endless.
No consistent patterns have been found that
distinguish effective leaders from the
ineffective one.
Difficult to measure traits.
All traits are not equally important for all
situations.
7-24
Shortcoming or Criticisms of Trait Theory
 Some effective leaders do not
possess all of these traits, and some
leaders who do possess them are not
effective in their leadership roles.
 Rather than focusing on what
leaders are like (the traits they
possess), researchers began looking
at what effective leaders actually do-
in.
7-25
3. BEHAVIORAL LEADERSHIP THEORIES
 Assumes that there are distinctive
styles that effective leaders use
consistently
 Assumed leadership capability can
be learned, rather than being
inherent.
TWO DIMENSIONAL LEADERSHIP STYLES
Ohio State University study
 Initiating structure (defining roles).
 spells out ways of getting the job done
 gives instructions, spends time
planning, organizing, and emphasizes
deadlines
 tend to defined patterns and channels
of communication
 Consideration behavior
(concern for feelings).
 Is mindful of subordinates
 Establishes mutual trust
 Provides open communication
 Develops teamwork Abdella K., Department of Entrepreneurship &
Bus. Mgt, Kotebe Metroplitan University
University of Michigan Studies
 Production-Centered
 Task focused
 Close supervision
 clear work standard
 urge for task accomplishment
 Employee-Centered
 focus on people doing the work
 believe in delegating decision
making and aiding employee
 creating a supportive work
environment.

II. BASIC LEADERSHIP STYLES
 In the 1930’s, before behavioral theory became popular,
studies at the University of Iowa concentrated on the manner or
style (behavior) of leaders. The studies identified three basic
leadership styles:
Autocratic: the leader makes the decisions and closely supervises
employees.
Democratic: the leader allows participation in decisions and does not
closely supervise employees.
Laissez-faire: the leader takes a leave-the employees-alone approach.
7-30
III. THE LEADERSHIP MANAGERIAL GRID
• (1,1): The leader does the minimum required.
• (9,1): The leader uses position power to coerce
employees.
• (1,9): The leader maintain good relations.
• (5,5)The organized-person manager: The leader
strives to maintain satisfactory middle-of-the-road
performance.
• (9,9)The team manager: Maximum performance
and employee satisfaction. Participation,
commitment, and conflict management are
emphasized. the researchers concluded that managers
performed best when using a 9,9 style.
Blake and Mouton's model
Appraises leadership
styles using two
dimensions
7-31
4. CONTINGENCY/SITUATIONAL THEORY
 According to situational theories,
assume that the appropriate leadership
style varies from situation to situation.
 Contingency theories do not deny the
importance of the leader’s
characteristics or the leader’s
behavior.
 Both must be taken into account in
the context of the situation.
7-32
A. Fiedler's Contingency Model
 Proper match between the leader’s style and situation.
Assumptions:
 a key factor in leadership success was an individual’s
basic leadership style: task oriented or relationship
oriented.
 A certain leadership style should be most effective in
different types of situations.
 Leaders do not readily change leadership styles.
 Matching the leader to the situation or changing the
situation to make it favorable to the leader is
required.
7-33
Fiedler's Contingency Model
 Least-preferred co-worker (LPC) questionnaire
 Determines leadership style by measuring
responses to 18 pairs of contrasting
adjectives
 High score: a relationship-oriented leadership style
 Low score: a task-oriented leadership style
 Fiedler did acknowledge that a small number of
people might fall between these two extremes,
but he also assumed a person’s leadership style
was fixed regardless of the situation.
7-34
Fiedler's Contingency Model
 Fiedler’s research uncovered three contingency
dimensions that defined the key situational factors
in leader effectiveness:
 Leader-member relations
 the degree of confidence, trust, and respect
employees had for their leader
 Task structure
 the degree to which job assignments were formalized
and structured
 Position power
 the degree of influence a leader had over activities
such as hiring, firing, discipline, promotions, and
salary increases
7-35
Fiedler's Contingency Model
 The three contingency variables
shown above, produced eight
possible situations that were either
favorable or unfavorable for the
leader.
 He concluded that task-oriented
leaders performed better in very
favorable and in very unfavorable
situations.
 On the other hand, relationship-
oriented leaders performed better in
moderately favorable situations.
7-36
Fiedler's Contingency Model
7-37
B. LEADERSHIP CONTINUUM
 Robert Tannenbaum and Warren Schemdit stated that
leadership behavior is on a continuum from autocrat (or boss-
centered) to democrat (or employee centered) leadership.
 They identify seven major styles based on the use of boss-
centered versus employee centered.
 As one moves away from the autocratic extreme, the amount
of subordinates participation and involvement in decision
making increases.
7-38
LEADERSHIP CONTINUUM
 Before selecting one of the seven leadership styles, the user must
consider the following three factors, or variables:
- The manager: what is the leader’s preferred style?
- The subordinates: what is the subordinates’ preferred style for
the leader, based on experience, expectation, and son on?
Generally, the more willing and able the subordinates are to
participate, the more freedom to participate should be given.
- The situation: Organization’s size, structure, climate, goals, and
technology?
7-39
LEADERSHIP CONTINUUM
7-40
LEADERSHIP CONTINUUM
 The model does not state which style to use in a situation.
Autocratic/Telling Style: the leader makes the decisions and announces them,
expecting subordinates to carry out without question.
Selling/Persuasive Style: the leader takes the decisions without discussion and
consultation. But the leader does a lot of explanations to overcome any possible
resistance and to persuade that the decisions are good.
Shows: The leader presents his/her decision and invites subordinates to ask
questions about the decision and presents tentative decision subject to change.
Asks: The leader confers with the group members after taking decisions and
asks their feelings and their suggestion.
7-41
LEADERSHIP CONTINUUM
Consultative style: The leader may not always accept the
subordinates’ advice but they (subordinates) are likely to feel
that they can have some influence.
 The decision and the full responsibility for it remain with the leader.
 Appropriate when there is time and when the information needed
lies among the members.
Shares: The leader defines the decision limits and asks groups to
make decision within the limit.
Democratic/Joining Style: leader permits subordinates to
function within limits defined by leader.
7-42
C. HERSEY-BLANCHARD SITUATIONAL
LEADERSHIP MODEL
 Posits that the developmental levels of a leader’s subordinates
play the greatest role in determine which leadership style is
appropriate.
 Employee readiness or maturity: employee’s ability and willingness to
accomplish a task and taking responsibility.
 Ability: follower’s skills and knowledge to perform the task without guidance.
 Willingness: self-motivation and commitments.
 Takes the two dimensional leadership styles and the four
quadrants, and develops four leadership styles.

TRANSFORMATIONAL, TRANSACTIONAL AND
SERVANT PERSPECTIVE OF LEADERSHIP
1. Transformational Leadership
 Creating, communicating, and modeling a vision, and inspiring
employees to strive for that vision.
 Make subordinates aware of the importance of their jobs,
performance and their needs for personal growth and motivates
subordinates to work for the good of the organization.
 Transformational leadership is about change, innovation, and
entrepreneurship.
7-47
Transformational Leadership
Characteristics of transformational leaders are;
- They see themselves as change agents
- They are encourageous individuals who take
risks
- They believe in people and motivate them
- They are value-driven
- They have the ability to deal with complexity,
ambiguity, and uncertainty; and
- They are visionaries.
7-48
Transformational Leadership
 Transformational leaders perform, or take the organization
through, three acts, on an ongoing basis.
7-49
2. Transactional Leadership
 Focuses more on middle and first-line
managers.
 Based on the principle of “you do this
work for me and I will give this reward to
you.”
 Use reward and coercive powers to
encourage high performance.
 They can improve organizational
efficiency.
7-50
3.Servant Leadership
 Arises out of a desire to serve rather than a desire to lead.
 Robert Greenleaf, founder of the Center for Servant Leadership
describes as follows:
 “The servant-leader is servant first… It begins with the natural
feeling that one wants to serve first.
 He or she is sharply different from the person who is leader first.
 The leader-first and the servant-first are two extreme types.
7-51
Servant Leadership
 The servant-first make sure that other
people’s highest priority needs are being
served.
 The best test, and difficult to
administer, is: do those served grow as
persons; do they, while being served,
become healthier, wiser, freer, more
autonomous, more likely themselves to
become servants?
7-52
Servant Leadership
 Characteristics of Servant Leaders are as follows:
 Lead as a way of expanding service to individuals
and institutions.
 Servant-leaders may or may not hold formal
leadership positions.
 Encourages collaboration, trust, foresight,
listening, and the ethical use of power and
empowerment.”
 The emphasis on serving a higher purpose has
made this model popular within the religious
institutions.

  • 16. 7-16 LEADERSHIP THEORIES Time 1900 1950 1970 Great Man theory Leaders level of greatness Trait theories personality characterist ics The Evolution of Leadership Research Behavioral theories (task and people) how leaders act Contingency theory how the environment affects leaders and their performance
  • 17. 7-17  Great man theory assumes “great leaders are born not made”.  Portray great leaders are heroic, mythic and destined to rise to leadership when needed.  leaders are exceptional people, born with innate qualities, destined to lead.  The gender issues were not on the table 1. GREAT MAN THEORY
  • 18. 7-18 2. TRAIT THEORY OF LEADERSHIP  Claims that people are born with inherited traits.  People who make good leaders have the right (sufficient) combination of traits.  Assumes that there are distinctive physical and psychological characteristics accounting for leadership effectiveness.  Also assumed that a finite number of individual traits-intellectual, emotional, physical, and other traits- of effective leaders could be found.  Focused on ‘what’ an effective leader is, not on ‘how’ to effectively lead.
  • 19. Traits • Adaptable to situations • Alert to social environment • Ambitious and achievement orientated • Assertive • Cooperative • Decisive • Dependable • Dominant (desire to influence others) • Energetic (high activity level) • Persistent • Self-confident • Tolerant of stress • Willing to assume responsibility Skills • Clever (intelligent) • Conceptually skilled • Creative • Diplomatic and tactful • Fluent in speaking • Knowledgeable about group task • Organised (administrative ability) • Persuasive • Socially skilled Leadership Traits and Skills Leaders will also use: Integrity, Honesty, Compassion, Humility TRAIT THEORY OF LEADERSHIP Abdella K., Department of Entrepreneurship & Bus. Mgt, Kotebe Metroplitan University

  • 22. Leadership Traits Group Exercise: • Choose leaders YOU admire • What personality traits and skills do they have? Activity Abdella K., Department of Entrepreneurship & Bus. Mgt, Kotebe Metroplitan University
  • 23. 7-23 Shortcoming or Criticisms of Trait Theory Not all leaders possess all of the traits identified. List of potentially important traits is endless. No consistent patterns have been found that distinguish effective leaders from the ineffective one. Difficult to measure traits. All traits are not equally important for all situations.
  • 24. 7-24 Shortcoming or Criticisms of Trait Theory  Some effective leaders do not possess all of these traits, and some leaders who do possess them are not effective in their leadership roles.  Rather than focusing on what leaders are like (the traits they possess), researchers began looking at what effective leaders actually do- in.
  • 25. 7-25 3. BEHAVIORAL LEADERSHIP THEORIES  Assumes that there are distinctive styles that effective leaders use consistently  Assumed leadership capability can be learned, rather than being inherent.
  • 26. TWO DIMENSIONAL LEADERSHIP STYLES Ohio State University study  Initiating structure (defining roles).  spells out ways of getting the job done  gives instructions, spends time planning, organizing, and emphasizes deadlines  tend to defined patterns and channels of communication  Consideration behavior (concern for feelings).  Is mindful of subordinates  Establishes mutual trust  Provides open communication  Develops teamwork Abdella K., Department of Entrepreneurship & Bus. Mgt, Kotebe Metroplitan University
  • 27. University of Michigan Studies  Production-Centered  Task focused  Close supervision  clear work standard  urge for task accomplishment  Employee-Centered  focus on people doing the work  believe in delegating decision making and aiding employee  creating a supportive work environment. University of Michigan Studies Identified 2 Leadership Behaviors Employee- Centered Production- Centered Leaders interested in their subordinates as people, encourage worker participation in the organizational goal-setting process. Leaders emphasized technical aspects of job, set job standards, close supervision of subordinates. Abdella K., Department of Entrepreneurship & Bus. Mgt, Kotebe Metroplitan University
  • 28. 7-28 TWO DIMENSIONAL LEADERSHIP STYLES  Different combination of the two dimensions of leadership results in four leadership styles. Note that the managerial grid refers to job centered refers as concern for production and the managerial grid consideration refers as concern for people. High consideration And Low structure High structure And High consideration Low consideration And Low structure High structure And low consideration Consideration Initiating structure High HighLow High
  • 29. 7-29 II. BASIC LEADERSHIP STYLES  In the 1930’s, before behavioral theory became popular, studies at the University of Iowa concentrated on the manner or style (behavior) of leaders. The studies identified three basic leadership styles: Autocratic: the leader makes the decisions and closely supervises employees. Democratic: the leader allows participation in decisions and does not closely supervise employees. Laissez-faire: the leader takes a leave-the employees-alone approach.
  • 30. 7-30 III. THE LEADERSHIP MANAGERIAL GRID • (1,1): The leader does the minimum required. • (9,1): The leader uses position power to coerce employees. • (1,9): The leader maintain good relations. • (5,5)The organized-person manager: The leader strives to maintain satisfactory middle-of-the-road performance. • (9,9)The team manager: Maximum performance and employee satisfaction. Participation, commitment, and conflict management are emphasized. the researchers concluded that managers performed best when using a 9,9 style. Blake and Mouton's model Appraises leadership styles using two dimensions
  • 31. 7-31 4. CONTINGENCY/SITUATIONAL THEORY  According to situational theories, assume that the appropriate leadership style varies from situation to situation.  Contingency theories do not deny the importance of the leader’s characteristics or the leader’s behavior.  Both must be taken into account in the context of the situation.
  • 32. 7-32 A. Fiedler's Contingency Model  Proper match between the leader’s style and situation. Assumptions:  a key factor in leadership success was an individual’s basic leadership style: task oriented or relationship oriented.  A certain leadership style should be most effective in different types of situations.  Leaders do not readily change leadership styles.  Matching the leader to the situation or changing the situation to make it favorable to the leader is required.
  • 33. 7-33 Fiedler's Contingency Model  Least-preferred co-worker (LPC) questionnaire  Determines leadership style by measuring responses to 18 pairs of contrasting adjectives  High score: a relationship-oriented leadership style  Low score: a task-oriented leadership style  Fiedler did acknowledge that a small number of people might fall between these two extremes, but he also assumed a person’s leadership style was fixed regardless of the situation.
  • 34. 7-34 Fiedler's Contingency Model  Fiedler’s research uncovered three contingency dimensions that defined the key situational factors in leader effectiveness:  Leader-member relations  the degree of confidence, trust, and respect employees had for their leader  Task structure  the degree to which job assignments were formalized and structured  Position power  the degree of influence a leader had over activities such as hiring, firing, discipline, promotions, and salary increases
  • 35. 7-35 Fiedler's Contingency Model  The three contingency variables shown above, produced eight possible situations that were either favorable or unfavorable for the leader.  He concluded that task-oriented leaders performed better in very favorable and in very unfavorable situations.  On the other hand, relationship- oriented leaders performed better in moderately favorable situations.
  • 37. 7-37 B. LEADERSHIP CONTINUUM  Robert Tannenbaum and Warren Schemdit stated that leadership behavior is on a continuum from autocrat (or boss- centered) to democrat (or employee centered) leadership.  They identify seven major styles based on the use of boss- centered versus employee centered.  As one moves away from the autocratic extreme, the amount of subordinates participation and involvement in decision making increases.
  • 38. 7-38 LEADERSHIP CONTINUUM  Before selecting one of the seven leadership styles, the user must consider the following three factors, or variables: - The manager: what is the leader’s preferred style? - The subordinates: what is the subordinates’ preferred style for the leader, based on experience, expectation, and son on? Generally, the more willing and able the subordinates are to participate, the more freedom to participate should be given. - The situation: Organization’s size, structure, climate, goals, and technology?
  • 40. 7-40 LEADERSHIP CONTINUUM  The model does not state which style to use in a situation. Autocratic/Telling Style: the leader makes the decisions and announces them, expecting subordinates to carry out without question. Selling/Persuasive Style: the leader takes the decisions without discussion and consultation. But the leader does a lot of explanations to overcome any possible resistance and to persuade that the decisions are good. Shows: The leader presents his/her decision and invites subordinates to ask questions about the decision and presents tentative decision subject to change. Asks: The leader confers with the group members after taking decisions and asks their feelings and their suggestion.
  • 41. 7-41 LEADERSHIP CONTINUUM Consultative style: The leader may not always accept the subordinates’ advice but they (subordinates) are likely to feel that they can have some influence.  The decision and the full responsibility for it remain with the leader.  Appropriate when there is time and when the information needed lies among the members. Shares: The leader defines the decision limits and asks groups to make decision within the limit. Democratic/Joining Style: leader permits subordinates to function within limits defined by leader.
  • 42. 7-42 C. HERSEY-BLANCHARD SITUATIONAL LEADERSHIP MODEL  Posits that the developmental levels of a leader’s subordinates play the greatest role in determine which leadership style is appropriate.  Employee readiness or maturity: employee’s ability and willingness to accomplish a task and taking responsibility.  Ability: follower’s skills and knowledge to perform the task without guidance.  Willingness: self-motivation and commitments.  Takes the two dimensional leadership styles and the four quadrants, and develops four leadership styles.
  • 45. Copyright © 2005 by South-Western, a division of Thomson Learning. All rights reserved. Hersey-Blanchard’s Situational Leadership Theory Links leader’s behavioral style with subordinates’ task readiness Very High Readiness Level High Readiness Level Moderate Readiness Level Low Readiness Level Follower Characteristics Appropriate Leader Style Telling Selling Participating Delegating High task behavior and low support behavior High task and high supportive behavior High supportive behavior and low task behavior Low task and low supportive behavior Situation
  • 46. 7-46 TRANSFORMATIONAL, TRANSACTIONAL AND SERVANT PERSPECTIVE OF LEADERSHIP 1. Transformational Leadership  Creating, communicating, and modeling a vision, and inspiring employees to strive for that vision.  Make subordinates aware of the importance of their jobs, performance and their needs for personal growth and motivates subordinates to work for the good of the organization.  Transformational leadership is about change, innovation, and entrepreneurship.
  • 47. 7-47 Transformational Leadership Characteristics of transformational leaders are; - They see themselves as change agents - They are encourageous individuals who take risks - They believe in people and motivate them - They are value-driven - They have the ability to deal with complexity, ambiguity, and uncertainty; and - They are visionaries.
  • 48. 7-48 Transformational Leadership  Transformational leaders perform, or take the organization through, three acts, on an ongoing basis.
  • 49. 7-49 2. Transactional Leadership  Focuses more on middle and first-line managers.  Based on the principle of “you do this work for me and I will give this reward to you.”  Use reward and coercive powers to encourage high performance.  They can improve organizational efficiency.
  • 50. 7-50 3.Servant Leadership  Arises out of a desire to serve rather than a desire to lead.  Robert Greenleaf, founder of the Center for Servant Leadership describes as follows:  “The servant-leader is servant first… It begins with the natural feeling that one wants to serve first.  He or she is sharply different from the person who is leader first.  The leader-first and the servant-first are two extreme types.
  • 51. 7-51 Servant Leadership  The servant-first make sure that other people’s highest priority needs are being served.  The best test, and difficult to administer, is: do those served grow as persons; do they, while being served, become healthier, wiser, freer, more autonomous, more likely themselves to become servants?
  • 52. 7-52 Servant Leadership  Characteristics of Servant Leaders are as follows:  Lead as a way of expanding service to individuals and institutions.  Servant-leaders may or may not hold formal leadership positions.  Encourages collaboration, trust, foresight, listening, and the ethical use of power and empowerment.”  The emphasis on serving a higher purpose has made this model popular within the religious institutions.
