  8. 8. Charismatic leader Weber applies the term charisma to "a certain quality of an individual personality, by virtue of which he is set apart from ordinary men and treated as endowed with supernatural, superhuman, or at least specifically exceptional powers or qualities A charismatic leader is a positive and compelling quality of a person that makes many others want to be led by that person also an important element of Aung San Suu Kyi's charismatic leadership involves the attributions made by group members about the characteristic of leader and the results they achieve
  9. 9. A charismatic leader  is proven to be more effective because of the power he wields as a result of his charm and grace. It is also easier for him to develop trust among people by ensuring their involvement in the process of growth and development. He/She is someone who can clearly visualize the future. Thus, people almost attribute to him a God-like quality, and generally, follow him to the last word. The charismatic leader can, thus, also be described as the visionary leader. The major advantage of this leadership style is that it can prove excellent to achieve positive changes and results. On the other hand, it can also be misused for personal gains. Source:
  10. 10. A charismatic leader is enthusiastic and committed towards achieving the goal, which may or may not be clear. Even so, he/she will readily participate in exploring different possibilities that will lead to the goal. Even if the vision is unclear, the direction will always be clear with a transformational leader. Therefore, he may be similar to a participative or democratic leader, who involves his followers in the decision-making process. He/she will gather large groups of people through various ceremonies to pump them up with the same level of enthusiasm he feels. The most important characteristic of a transformational leader is the deep level of commitment he has source: toward attaining his goal.
  11. 11. transformational  A   leader is someone who is so passionate, as to rub off his vision and passion on his followers. He brings about positive major changes in an organization and moves group members beyond themselves interest for the goal of the groups, organization and society. A transformational leader cares about the growth of his people, and ensures the same by convincing his people to comply with his vision. Source:

  13. 13. Transactional leader A sharp contrast to the charismatic and transformational leader, the transactional  leader functions on the simple logic, that rewards and punishment will stimulate his people to perform better. Transactional leadership is a set of leadership behaviors that emphasizes exchanges or bargains between manager and follower, and focuses on how current needs of subordinates can be fulfilled. Generally, transactional leadership is the other name for “changes”.
  14. 14. A transactional leader will define clear rules and framework to function by and will expect his subordinates to be completely responsible for the work delegated to them. As such, their performance will determine whether they will be rewarded or punished. This kind of leadership is generally followed in large organizations, and in some ways is an effective tool of corporate leadership. Here, employees are not involved in the process of decision-making. They are just means to the end of goal attainment. The primary advantage of this method of leadership is the reinforcements used to promote performance.  Source: Tiong: 2011
  15. 15. What is Servant  Leadership? The phrase “Servant Leadership” was coined by Robert K. Greenleaf in The Servant as Leader, an essay that he first published in 1970. In that essay, he said: "The servant-leader is servant first. It begins with the natural feeling that one wants to serve, to serve first. Source: Then conscious choice brings one to aspire to lead.
  16. 16. What is Servant Leadership? Stephen Covey "One of these fundamental, timeless principles is the idea of Servant Leadership, and will continue to dramatically increase in its relevance. To produce more for less, and with greater speed than you’ve ever done before. The only way you can do that in a sustained way is through the empowerment of people. And the only way you get empowerment is through high-trust cultures and through the empowerment philosophy that turns bosses into servants and coaches…"

  20. 20. Democratic or participative leadership style where the leader offers guidance/coaching to the team, but also participates in the group, and promotes feedback from other members.

  21. 21. Laissez-faire leadership Laissez-faire leadership, also known as delegative leadership, is a type of leadership style in which leaders are hands-off and allow group members to make the decisions. Researchers have found that this is generally the leadership style that leads to the lowest productivity among group members.

  28. 28. Those who can manage their workloads and have high cognitive bandwidth are known as high performers / high performance leaders. Across industries, high performers use the executive skills they have effectively and dependably. Different companies measure these high performers in different ways. Some may identify high performers based on their consistency. Others may value those with strong company loyalty, or those who have a broad set of skills that can be applied to many different types of situations. Some simply measure high performers based on their position in the company. Across the board, higher performers tend to have three common executive skills which they are strongest in: working memory, planning/prioritization, and organization. These are skills strongly linked with high output.
  29. 29. The process of leadership is carried out by the attributes the leader possesses such as his beliefs, values, ethics, character, knowledge, and skills. Leaders should be highly motivated to inspire the employees and teams that they lead. Leaders must be able to dream big and lay down the path with such clarity that people should follow them through; the vision should make a compelling case for action by seeing endless possibilities without boundaries so that people can be drawn in for the cause.
