Volume 9 No.1 January-June 2020 pp 48-51
Leadership is an essential element in encouraging and guiding employees which helps in boosting their morale and eventually the effectiveness of the organization. This project aims at understanding the meaning of leadership along with the different styles of leadership that exist and its application in different scenarios. It also analyses the role of situational leadership in the larger bracket of leadership and how it is essential for the leader to change his outlook and method as and when the situation changes in the workplace. The research paper also talks about how aspects of a good manager influence his position in an organization and the correlation between stress and the style of leadership used.
