Leadership researchers White and Hodgson suggest that truly effective leadership is not just about the qualities of the leader, it is about striking the right balance between behaviors, needs, and context. Good leaders are able to assess the needs of their followers, take stock of the situation, and then adjust their behaviors accordingly. Success depends on a number of variables including the leadership style, qualities of the followers and aspects of the situation.

Situational Theories Situational theories propose that leaders choose the best course of action based upon situational variables. Different styles of leadership may be more appropriate for certain types of decision-making. For example, in a situation where the leader is the most knowledgeable and experienced member of a group, an authoritarian style might be most appropriate.

In other instances where group members are skilled experts, a democratic style would be more effective. Behavioral Theories Behavioral theories of leadership are based upon the belief that great leaders are made, not born.

These leaders encourage participation and contributions from group members and help group members feel more relevant and committed to the decision-making process.

In participative theories, however, the leader retains the right to allow the input of others.

Leadership is a process whereby a leader influences workers under him to follow in executing tasks willingly to achieve organisational goals.

A leader must be able to influence and motivate his followers. An effective leadership is leadership which may bring changes in an organisation and the behaviour of workers.
