Part B
Recent theoretical developments in leadership paradigms seem more inclined to frame leadership concepts within the context of moral philosophy, interpersonal growth and spiritual values, topics discussed in business leadership models. Some examples include transformational leadership (Burns, 1978; Bass, 1990), Servant-Leadership (Greenleaf Center, 2002), Relational Leadership (Brower, Schoorman, & Hwee, 2000) and spiritual leadership (Mitroff & Denton, 1999), and Transactional Leadership (Nahavandi, 2006).
Conduct a preliminary search of these models, and select one that resonates best with your own leadership style and one that does not resonate to your own leadership style. Using the business article collections and other credible sources, respond to the following questions regarding the model you have selected:
1. Select two and compare and contrast these two models. Discuss how these selected leadership models impact leader follower-relationships and organizational culture.
2. How is your own leadership style similar to the selected leadership model?
