Leadership Style looking for certain leadership approaches. There are different perspectives and factors to consider, there is no single answer to how leadership is defined (Hughes, 2009, pg.6) According to the text leadership is basically "the process of influencing an organized group toward accomplishing its goals"(Hughes, 2009, pg.6) The test discussed three myths that relate to leadership they are; Good leadership is all good common sense, leaders are born not made, and the only school that you learn leadership from is the school of the hard knocks. (Hughes, 2009, pg.14-17) A leader does have to use common sense, some decisions and choices have to be made using good ethics and personal options. I do believe that a true leader is born and not made. Experts agree that successful leaders must be flexible and capable of adapting to new conditions, open to novel alternatives, and willing to take greater risks (Lamb, 2004). Every leader has their own leadership style, so there are several effective leadership styles. Some examples of leadership styles would be the Director’s Approach, Coaching Style, Facilitating Style, Delegating Approach, Self-confidence, Decisiveness, and Resilience. The most interesting styles of leadership are Coaching Style, Self- confidence, and Decisiveness.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
