55 Theory/ModelAuthorFeatures Traits Linked to personal qualities and characteristics. Rooted in psychological assessments of personality e.g. Big Five and Myers-Briggs Behavioural Contingency Stogdill, R.M. (1948, 1974) Blake & Mouton (1964) Fielder, F.E. (1967) Vroom & Yetton (1973) Tannenbaum and Schmidt (1973) Introduced the (people-production) Management Grid. Focus on leader-member relations and task or people oriented leaders. Task orientation suits when situation high or low ‘favourability’ and people orientation when moderate. Focus on leader. Underplays people dimension. Path Goal Evans (1970) House & Dressler (1974) Path-Goal is grounded in expectancy theory (effort/performance/outcome) and importance of context and culture. Not adequately empirically validated. Situational Hersey & Blanchard (1982) Blanchard, K. (2004) Leaders should act as the situation (task or relationship centred) demands. Situational Leadership (task, relationship plus maturity of followers) promotes use of leadership styles. Intuitive and pragmatic. Not empirically validated. Charismatic Transformational Visionary House, R. (1977) Bass, B. (1985) Kouzes & Posner (1987) Bennis (2003) Leaders use vision and influence and persuade followers to subordinate individual wants to the needs of the collective. There is an importance attached to context and increasingly this is seen as being chaotic and by necessity, to be exploited rather than controlled. Emotional Intelligence Goleman (1999) Caruso & Salovey (2004) Goleman, Boyatzis & Mckee (2004) Focused on the leader-follower relationship. Need for leader self- awareness, self-control and empathy.
