A leader must also be able to adapt appropriate interpersonal and leadership styles to meet particular circumstances and situations. For example, how would you lead a group of people who are knowledgeable in their own areas of expertise? What leadership style is most appropriate in this kind of situation? What about if you are leading a group of people who requires a large deal amount of supervision and training? What leadership style is most appropriate in this kind of situation? A leader must be flexible enough to know how to lead various kinds of people in the workplace and adjust leadership style according to their own circumstances. A leader must also continuously improve both personally and professionally through professional improvement activities and programs. For example, a leader may decide to further his/her studies through further training and development, read a wide variety of management and leadership literature and participate regularly in industry/professional networks and groups.
