Abstract (Summary)

Management cannot be learned from a book. That does not mean, however, that one should not attempt to learn about management from books. In a presentation on spaghetti sauces, journalist Malcom Gladwell said, "There is no good mustard or bad mustard. There is no perfect mustard or imperfect mustard. There are only different kinds of mustard that suit different kinds of people." Likewise, in management, there is no perfect leadership style; there are only different styles of leadership which better suit different kinds of people. In this paper, I will demonstrate the process by which I determined my own personal approach to organizational leadership. I will also demonstrate that a great deal of research has been conducted in the field, and the results make it clear that—while there may be no single perfect style—some approaches to leadership are, indeed, better than others.
