Competing Leadership Theories

If you’ve read a few leadership books, you’ll know there are differing views on what it takes to be an effective leader. But you can distil them down to two basic lines of thinking:

  • The idea that you need certain character traits to succeed as a leader – that leaders are born, not made.
  • The belief that it’s just a matter of behaving in a certain way. “Do this and you’ll succeed as a leader,” say those who hold this view.

The trouble is, researchers can’t agree on the key leadership traits. And the experts who tell leaders what to do or how to behave ignore the reality that many of them cannot or will not act like this, even after training, because of old habits. Habits driven by subtle psychological blocks.

Look InsideA New Approach to Growing Leaders

The problem is that no one’s pulled these ideas together into one simple, practical leadership model. A leadership model that also addresses the missing ingredient – the leader’s psychology. Or rather, no one had until James Scouller wrote the book, The Three Levels of Leadership: How to Develop Your Leadership Presence, Knowhow and Skill.
