TRAIT APPROACHES TO LEADERSHIP

Many studies of traits have been made various researches have identified specific
traits related to leadership ability. Five physical traits (such as energy, appearance and
height), Four intelligence and ability traits; sixteen personality traits (such as
adaptability, aggressiveness, self-confidence etc). Six task related characteristics
(Such as achievement drive, persistence and initiative) and nine social characteristic
(Such as co cooperativeness, interpersonal skill and administrative ability).
More recently following key leadership taints were identified drive (including
achievement, motivations energy, ambition etc). Honest and integrity, self confidence
(including emotional stability), cognitive ability and under standing of the business.
Less clear taints is creativity, flexibility etc)
In general, the study of leader’s traits has not been a very fruitful approach to
explaining leadership. Not all leader processes all the traits and many non leaders
may possess most or all of them. Also, the trait approach gives no guidance as to how
much of any train a person should have. Most of these so called traits are really
patterns of behavior.
