A particular leadership style may be more effective in one situation and the same style may be totally ineffective in another situation. Why is this so?
While the transformational leadership approach is often highly effective, there's no one "right" way to lead or manage that fits all situations. To choose the most effective approach for our self, consider the following:
- The skill levels and experience of your team.
- The work involved (routine, or new and creative).
- The organizational environment (stable or radically changing, conservative or adventurous).
- You own preferred or natural style.
