Introduction

UNDERSTANDING LEADERSHIP AND RECOGNIZING YOUR TRAITS

Leadership is a process that involves the interaction between the leader, the followers, and the situation. There is an abundance of different definitions of leadership and these differences have resulted in various researchers exploring different aspects of leadership. Using multiple perspectives to analyze leadership is advantageous because there are multiple paths by which one’s leadership is developed.

Leadership is a Trait

Leadership is an Ability

Leadership is a Skill

Leadership is a Behavior

Leadership is a Relationship

Leadership is an Influence Process

Chapter 2 will delve into the following leadership traits:

Intelligence

Confidence

Integrity (Northouse, 2021).

  • One of the goals here is professional preparation; if you would not say or do something in the workplace, then you should not post similar material in a discussion thread.
