Theory of Leadership
Success in leadership depends
more on what the leader does than on his traits. The behavioural approach is based
on the premise that effective leadership is the result of effective role
behavior. There is a dynamic interaction between the leader and the followers,
and leaders produce different styles while dealing with the workers.
Many behavioural scientists have
attempted to identify appropriate behavioural patterns of leadership styles.
Some of the important contributions in this regard include Ohio State Studies,
Michigan University Studies and Managerial Grid of Blake and Mouton. The
behavioural scientists don’t concentrate on the traits of leaders; rather they
study the activities of leaders to identify their behavioural patterns.
