Theoretical Leadership Philosophies
Write-up by Dr. Richard C. Baiz, D.B.A.
The purpose of my writings is to assist people with personally creating themselves to lead a healthy life mentally and physically. With the advancements of technologies the deliverables of communicating info has been far more prevalent than ever just before. The fact of the matter is we indeed live in what we call the "data era". Info is being provided in various forms such as: displays, social networks, IPods, blackberries, different creative technological gadgets, PC's and so on. Never ever ahead of has there been such a phenomenal movement of people paying to buy information. Details is becoming treated as a product and individuals are in search for answers to their bewilderments.
If you are looking for answers to those problems that trigger delays to your progress then you are looking for particular qualities that will separate you from the followers. That becoming the case it is essential to review those variables that will elevate you to that greater level of leadership and success personally, professionally and financially. I mean let's face it although money and finances are not "every little thing" it certain does help to make things happen for those you would like to support and lead. Let's assume for a moment that you are the kind of person that chooses to be effective for the purpose of becoming 1 who does have intent to assist other people. If you are that sort of person, then discovering the proper information to equip you with the theoretical knowledge to aid others should be gathered.
Now that we have gotten that out of the way let's take a look at what is the make-up of a leader. I don't believe that 1 has to be a hero or a trend setter just to be a leader. I also don't believe as some have stated the "Wonderful Man" theory in leadership. You see times have changed and leadership comes in all shapes and sizes. Leadership these days has no gender requirement nor cultural perquisites of some sort. Years ago it was unheard of to observe female leaders in high ranking positions in the military these days it is not far from the ranks of colonel, and generals and women in high levels in the private sector to the public sector such as the Supreme Court, Governor's and U.S. Senators.
I am with the contention that the data era will generate a new sector of theory based leadership that will be part of the existing terms and theory leadership philosophies. It will now have to be included along with the theory of "trait leadership theory". In other people words were the traits of our leadership abilities "inherited"? If so, then why do we at times have individuals who might have inherited certain leadership skills yet aren't leaders? Whilst we can grapple with the various leadership theories in place along with the variables connected with them we nevertheless ought to review the other leadership theories bestowed upon us such as "Contingency leadership theory". Again, the issues of data input in theory formulation involves variables such as approaches, abilities of individuals being led (followers), and the surrounding circumstances, i.e. what is the scenario. Contingency theory is manifested by means of setting determination and/or environmental one ought to ask who the best leader for a particular circumstance is? My info era leadership theory again is at the helm of playing a role in the basket of leadership theories and one that need to be included in scholarly dialogues. In my view there are not numerous separating issues in between contingency leadership theory and "Situational leadership theory". The similarities lie with the matters of the numerous forms of decision producing processes.
The data era leadership theory will reap most of its rewards by collaborating with what is referred to as the "Behavior Leadership Theory". This is a leadership theory that has the philosophy that leaders are taught to be leaders not born with it but rather tutored along to become leaders. If we analyze the scenario closely we can identify that the information era leadership theory will be most helpful to "participative leadership theory". Participative leadership theories depend on info and are a excellent fit for the two to collaborate for the purpose of leadership development in applying it to choice-creating processes. This is the leadership style of participation, openness, all suggestions are very good ideas and leave no stone unturned. Participative leadership theory and data leadership theory are a perfect fit for a positive progressive and explosive leadership manifestation.
