Accordingly, the view that leaders are naturally born is shifted to the notion that leaders can learn and change their behavior to emulate effective leaders (Benson, 2008). Yukl, Gordon, and Taber (2002) identified three behavior categories that depict leaders: task behavior, relations behaviors, and change behaviors. Leaders who display task behaviors develop schedules, provide short-term planning, and monitor unit activities. Relations-oriented leaders demonstrate certain levels of effort to establish and maintain employee relationships (Kilburn & Gates, 2010). Change-oriented leaders encourage creative ideas by seeking improvements (Yukl et al.,
Through the creation of a leadership philosophy, it is possible for an individual to determine what leadership qualities they find important. By combining leadership theories as well as my own leadership philosophy, it is possible to determine who I am as a leader. My
Concisely, Kanter identifies the three foremost important characteristics a leader can bring to a changing organization: passion, conviction, and confidence in others (Moss, 1999). Therefore, using these attributes, the leader assists individuals to change, by first aiding them to change their core beliefs, how they think, and their attitudes and then their behavior. Ostensibly, Chris Lowney explains how this is achievable. Conversely, he identifies four pillars of leadership - self-awareness, creativity, or ingenuity, innovation, or heroism, and love- and describes how they build a leader to embrace change (Lowney, p. 9). According to him,
Unit IV teaches that Leadership is important to performance and followership has everything to do with it. Kelley’s model of followership can be a useful model to observe people 's motivations and work ethic.

Understanding Leadership Leadership & Development Management Program1 Done By: Manal Al Mahmood Understand leadership styles Factors that will influence the choice of leadership styles in workplace situations Leadership is the ability of a person to move an organization towards the achievement or accomplishment of its goals and objectives (Ricketts and Ricketts, 2010, p.5). The leadership style used in an organization is essential in determining whether the desired results will be achieved. There are different factors that can impact the choice of leadership employed and a leader must identify and understand the impact that each factor would have in a given situation and must adapt the most ideal style that can enhance the desired result (Ricketts and Ricketts, 2010, p.5). Some of these factors include the nature of decision, the readiness of the team, situation, the behaviors of the team, leader’s personality, ability, and experiences.
In many cases, leaders are accountable for transformation in an organization. Leader-follower dynamics should be explored from the two varying viewpoints, digital natives and digital immigrants, to further understand the preferences of leadership styles in higher education. To further grasp the effectiveness of leaders based upon the perception of its followers, the evolution of leadership styles should be explored. Recent leadership concepts including transformational, charismatic, transactional, and Theory X and Theory Y facilitates an investigation of leader-follower associations. Robert Blake and Jane Mouton’s Managerial Grid model of leadership, based on Theory Y, will expound upon consideration referred to behavior reflecting respect for subordinates’ ideas and
