Leadership is not the responsibility of one person; it is a shared responsibility of the members of an emerging team. A team leader belongs to a respective group. Each one of the members has the responsibility to fulfill. The formal leadership positions are just the added burdens aside from their own responsibilities as being a member of the team. An effective leadership requires all the members to do their piece of work. Trust is built based on actions and not on just words. Someone rightly said, “Actions speak more than just words.” When a mutual respect exists between the team members, trust and faith are fostered and then the confidence is built among them.
The Leadership Styles Depend On The Situations
Aside from culture, beliefs, values and the form of government, the current situation of a nation affects the leadership styles used by its formal leaders. Ever thought why dictatorship still works for Singapore but not in the USA? There is no such rulebook set that said only one style can be used. The leaders work on a combination of leadership styles looking at the location and situation.
In some of the emergency situations like wars, and calamity, the decision-making is a one shot at life and death. A nation’s leader cannot afford to consult with the departments t arrive and discuss the situation. He has to take a decision out of his own to the benefit of the nation and the citizens. Keep in mind that there are always innovative ideas that you think you know already, but are actually not the things that should not be taken for granted.
