Leadership and Delegation


What is Leadership?

“Leadership may be considered as the process (act) of influencing the activities of an organized group in its efforts towards goal setting and goal achievement”
(Stogdill, 1950)
The factors that make an effective leader can be classified under three headings:
• Traits or characteristics they exhibit
• Behaviors that they show
• Situations they find themselves in

Traits Approach
The trait approach was one of the first systematic attempts to study leadership. However, the term trait has been the source of considerable ambiguity and confusion in the literature, referring sometimes and variously to personality, temperaments, dispositions, and abilities, as well as to any enduring qualities of the individual, including physical and demographic attributes.
