In reflection of Good to Great, as professional in leadership I ask myself what does it require to become a level five leader. I believe it is not something that happens overnight, it takes time and simply effort to develop into a level five leader.

Good to Great reinforces the importance of having the capabilities that are needed for the other four levels.

The following will discuss five leadership styles and theories that are characteristics of leaders, identify current leaders who possess these traits, and explore my own leadership style. Leadership theories tend to be the basis to forming leadership styles, for example if you believe that you are born to lead and had success in doing so then trait theory may be what you based your style upon. Trait theory being one of the first theories to come about has remained a popular one. The philosophy behind this theory is that people are either born or are made with certain traits that will make them excel in leadership roles hence the name trait theory. Trait theorists often identify certain personality or behavioral traits shared by leaders.
