Leadership theories have played an immensely significant role in driving leadership styles of various leaders and have led them to make their organizations reach success such as Steve Jobs of Apple. Situational leadership theory is one such significant theory under leadership taking the assumptions that leader’s best action is dependent upon situational factors range. Whenever there is a requirement of decision, there is no individual style that can be preferred by an effective leader. According to Tannenbaum and Schmidt, 1958, it was illustrated that there are 3 factors that can influence the action of a leader which are situation, followers and leaders own forces (Bass et al 2006). This implies the style of a leader being variably at a high rate and even particularly distant events such as a personal argument in family can also be influence work place decisions of a leader.
On the other hand, transformational leadership theory indicates the assumptions that individuals will become followers to those who consistently provide inspiration to them. A leader having passionate vision will be able to achieve higher successes by making his or hers followers filled with motivation and positive energy (Bass et al 2006). The visibility of a transformational leader is always easily identifiable such as transformational leadership skills depicted by Steve Jobs.
