A good leader will use a variety of different techniques and those with higher skill levels generally have more experience. The changes in definition come as a result of my changing viewpoints of what a leader does. A good leader will use the write techniques at the right time. For instance commanding is best used in a fire while coaching is best used when people are becoming discouraged.
Wow its week 3 already time sure does fly. Okay so leadership to me is still the ability to solve conflict and issues in a variety of ways. A good leader uses the right styles and types at appropriate times. My definition hasn't changed this week due to the lack of any real persuading arguments for it to adapt. The only thing that was revealed to me this week was why people follow. I thought that wisdom was a big reason why people follow certain people, while it is partly true hope is a bigger role. This caught me off guard but looking back it makes sense as if a leader invokes no hope, then people have no loyalty.
