INTRODUCTION

Traditionally leadership in the early years has been associated with individual skills characteristics
and personal qualities in the leader. A more recent view of leadership is that it is not an isolated
activity invested in a single person, but rather that a variety of people contribute to effective
leadership, and that leadership is therefore distributed. If this is the case, then preparation for
leadership has to go beyond individual management training since leadership capacities will need to
be more widely developed in the team.
Good leaders are made not born. If you have the desire and willpower, you can become an effective
leader. Good leaders develop through a never ending process of self-study, education, training, and
experience (Jago, 1982). This guide will help you through that process.
To inspire your workers into higher levels of teamwork, there are certain things you must be,
know, and, do. These do not come naturally, but are acquired through continual work and study.
Good leaders are continually working and studying to improve their leadership skills; they are NOT
resting on their laurels.

Most people tend to resent being treated like this.Transformational leadership 1. For some routine and unskilled jobs. .Transactional leadership.Autocratic leadership. . Because of this. Also.Autocratic Leadership Autocratic leadership is an extreme form of transactional leadership.Charismatic leadership. autocratic leadership usually leads to high levels of absenteeism and staff turnover.Servant leadership. so many of the benefits of teamwork are lost. .Laissez-faire leadership. . however. .Task-oriented leadership. . . where a leader exerts high levels of power over his or her employees or team members. . People within the team are given few opportunities for making suggestions.People-oriented leadership or relations-oriented leadership. even if these would be in the team's or organization's interest.TYPES OF LEADERSHIP Most common Leadership Types are: . the team's output does not benefit from the creativity and experience of all team members.Bureaucratic leadership. 7 . this style can remain effective where the advantages of control outweigh the disadvantages.Democratic leadership or participative leadership. .

Employees and team members feel in control of their own destiny. This can create a risk that a project. he or she invites other members of the team to contribute to the decision-making process. In other situations. or even an entire organization. might collapse if the leader were to leave: In the eyes of their followers.2. ensuring that their staff follow procedures exactly. However.Democratic Leadership or Participative Leadership Although a democratic leader will make the final decision. and is very energetic in driving others forward. This is a very appropriate style for work involving serious safety risks (such as working with machinery. the inflexibility and high levels of control exerted can demoralize staff. 3. This not only increases job satisfaction by involving employees or team members in what's going on. and so are motivated to work hard by more than just a financial reward. As such. and needs long-term commitment from the leader. but it also helps to develop people's skills.Charismatic Leadership A charismatic leadership style can appear similar to a transformational leadership style. a charismatic leader can tend to believe more in him or herself than in their team. 4. 8 . charismatic leadership carries great responsibility. with toxic substances or at heights) or where large sums of money are involved (such as cash-handling). Bureaucratic Leadership Bureaucratic leaders "work by the book". and can diminish the organizations ability to react to changing external circumstances. in that the leader injects huge doses of enthusiasm into his or her team. success is tied up with the presence of the charismatic leader.

at any level within an organization. and quality is more important than speed to market or productivity.Laissez-Faire Leadership This French phrase means "let them do" and is used to describe a leader who leaves his or her colleagues to get on with their work. laissez-faire leadership works for teams in which the individuals are very experienced and skilled self-starters. Most often. 5. It can be most suitable where team working is essential. A participative style. Unfortunately.

However. but often the end result is better. It can be effective if the leader monitors what is being achieved and communicates this back to his or her team regularly.As participation takes time.Servant Leadership This term. supporting and developing the people in the leader's team. it can also refer to situations where managers are not exerting sufficient control. In practice. coined by Robert Greenleaf in the 1970s.

organize and monitor. As such.Transactional Leadership This style of leadership starts with the premise that team members agree to obey their leader totally when they take a job on: the transaction is (usually) that the organization pays the team members. He or she will actively define the work and the roles required. with difficulties in motivating and retaining staff. and can be quite autocratic.meeting the needs of his or her team. Alternatively a transactional leader could 10 . in which servant leaders achieve power on the basis of their values and ideals. as the whole team tends to be involved in decision-making. However. in return for their effort and compliance.Task-Oriented Leadership A highly task-oriented leader focuses only on getting the job done. which can help them identify specific areas for development that will help them involve people more. the leader has the right to punish team members if their work doesn't meet the pre-determined standard. put structures in place. In many ways. Supporters of the servant leadership model suggest it is an important way ahead in a world where values are increasingly important. The leader could give team members some control of their income/reward by using incentives that encourage even higher standards or greater productivity. Team members can do little to improve their job satisfaction under transactional leadership. as task-oriented leaders spare little thought for the well-being of their teams. 9. Task-oriented leaders can benefit from an understanding of the Blake-Mouton Managerial Grid. he or she is described as a "servant leader". servant leadership is a form of democratic leadership. Others believe that in competitive leadership situations. plan. this approach can suffer many of the flaws of autocratic leadership. people practicing servant leadership will often find themselves left behind by leaders using other leadership styles. 8.

They don't necessarily lead from the front. they can need to be supported by "detail people". although we do recommend that other styles are brought as the situation demands. While their enthusiasm is often infectious.Transformational Leadership A person with this leadership style is a true leader who inspires his or her team with a shared vision of the future. 9. 11 . The transformational leadership style is the dominant leadership style taught in the "How to Lead: Discover the Leader Within You" leadership program. The transactional leaders (or managers) ensure that routine work is done reliably.practice "management by exception". rather than rewarding better work. as the focus is on short-term tasks. It has serious limitations for knowledge-based or creative work. Transactional leadership is really just a way of managing rather a true leadership style. and spend a lot of time communicating. as they tend to delegate responsibility amongst their teams. Transformational leaders are highly visible. both transactional and transformational leadership are needed. he or she would take corrective action if the required standards were not met. whereby. while the transformational leaders look after initiatives that add value. but remains a common style in many organizations.

while constantly working to improve and expand those capabilities. following role models. Leadership is about making things happen.  Leadership Develops Over Time. The best way to create change is to work with the particular capabilities that you have. It is through practice. Leaders may create change by playing a central role in the actual change process. That is. Leadership framework SENSEMAKING 13 . feedback.  Leadership is Distributed.1)Approaches upon which early Leadership practices are predicated. reflection.  Leadership is a Process to Create Change. and theory that we learn leadership. leadership is not solely the purview of the CEO.  Leadership is Personal and Developmental. contingent on a context. There is no single way to lead. or by creating an environment in which others are empowered to act. but can and should permeate all levels of the firm.

 Do not simply apply your existing frameworks and overlay them on the situation.Sensemaking is about “making sense of the world around us”. or stories to try to capture and communicate critical elements of your map. It also involves trying to understand how the other person has moved from data to interpretation to assessment.  Use images. In the very process of mapping the new terrain. The act of Sensemaking is discovering the new terrain as you are inventing it. rather than simply reacting to the assessment itself. Tips for Sensemaking:  Seek many types and sources of data. Advocacy which involves taking a stand and trying to influence others of its merits while also being open to alternative views. metaphors. RELATING Relating is about “developing key relationships withint and across organisations” and consists of the following three primary components: 1. Inquiry which is the ability to listen and understand what others are thinking and feeling. you are creating it. 14 .  Move beyond stereotypes. 2.  Learn from small experiments.  Involve others in your sensemaking.

 Use stories. metaphors and analogies to paint a vivid picture of what the vision will accomplish.  Think about how others might react to your idea and how you might best explain it to them. VISIONING While sensemaking creates a map of what is. visioning provides people with a sense of meaning about their work. Tips for effective Visioning are:  Develop a vision about something that excites you or that you think is important. 15 . Connecting which is the ability to build collaborative relationships with others and to create coalitions for change.  Be clear about your stand and how you reached it. visioning is a map of what could be.  Practice creating a vision in many arenas. It answers the question “why am I doing this?” Thus good leaders are able to frame visions in a way that emphasizes their importance along some key value dimensions. Perhaps most importantly.3.  Think about your connections.  Frame the vision with an ideological goal.  Encourage others to voice their opinions. Tips for effective connecting are:  Understand the perspective of others within the organization and withhold judgment while listening to them. Visions are important because they provide the motivation for people to give up their current views and ways of working in order to change.

 Enable co-workers by pointing out that they have the skills and capabilities needed to realize the vision. 16 . think through how it will get done—who will do what.  Embody the key values and ideas contained in the vision – “walk the talk. organizing their internal interaction.  When a new task or change effort emerges. It involves implementing the steps needed to achieve our vision of the future. Inventing entails creating the processes and structures needed to make the vision a reality. by when. Tips for effective inventing include:  Maintain focus on improving the ways that people work together in your team and organization.” INVENTING Creating is about the creation of new ways of woking together.  Blend sensemaking and inventing. and in what configuration.  Play with new and different ways of organizing work—examine alternative ways of grouping people together. and linking across different groups.
