When It comesto development in a leader “Jack Welch” quotes before a leader becomes a leaderhis success was to only look at developing himself, but when you’re asuccessful leader it is all about trying to develop your own followers (BrainyQuote,2018). Whereas when we look at thecharacter of a leader Joanne Ciulla quotes that leadership doesn’t belong to anindividual or an position, it is a bigger picture of the peoples relationship,trust, bond, mental and physical emotions and a vision which is being shared byboth sides (Great-quotes.com, 2018). 1.1 Theories of leadership The Great man Theory The great man theory reflects that eitheran individual is born with leadership skills is a leader or if he doesn’t haveleadership skills then he is not a leader (Verywell, 2018). In the 19thcentury Great Man Theory was well known leadership style. In this theory it isalso known as leaders are born not made. Thomas Carlyle a famous historian oncesaid that leaders are the people who are talented with driving a team or anindividual to a specific goal with his/hers characteristics and moral (Verywell,2018).
Problems of Great man Theory is that notall the people who are born with leadership qualities become very good leaderstherefore, if leadership is said to be a born talent then people who have them shouldhave necessity leadership roles. I research it is said to be that leadership isknown as a very big subject so that various factors do interferer on howtalented a leader could be or not (Verywell, 2018). The Trait Theory Carlyle the great historian believes that historyexist because of the great leaders in the past and whereas he further mentionsthat it is an inborn talent of a person who could lead a country or a set ofpeople and it cannot be developed by time (Verywell, 2018). “Shriberg andShriberg in their 2011 book Practicing Leadership Principles and Applications mentionsthat the Trait Theory is known to be the first Theory of leadership to becomeknown in the twentieth century and it has been criticized by many scholars”. Problems of Trait Theory is that believersof trait theory mentions that few of the traits are joint in maintaining astrong leadership, why does not the people who display these Traits ofleadership does not become superior Leaders? The superior leaders who does nothave the traits related to leadership, what about them? Whereas Stogdill’s 1974 review of leadershiptraits recognized a few qualities that had; Intelligence, knowledge, responsibility,integrity social skills, self-confidence also a study in 1989 said that thesetraits could be connected to leadership according to he situations like; taskcompetence, physical vitality, intelligence, ability to motivate people (Verywell,2018).
