Leadership Analysis in Organizations Assessment 4 Student name Institute Date of submission Introduction Im going to look at the interviews for leadership I had discussed earlier and in-depth talk of theories of leadership and the interview themes. Every person who takes a leadership position is always unique to the above but falls into a class which others are or falls same minds. I applied transformational theory in the previous assignment. Leadership Theory The theory I focused on was a Transformational theory of leadership which entails coaching and mentoring. Every person who has leadership responsibilities or may be termed as a leader should or focuses on this one purposely to build a strong base to an employee and which motivates and encourages employee(s) acquisition promotion and retention and also every one acquires leadership skills. It focuses on making changes to individuals including the social systems they are based on. It two ladies at the level Im since the knowledge I acquired from them I will use it in future and helped me to prepare a higher level interview in future. The higher the position the leader is holding the deeper and better the questions should be. Leaders style do change from one time to another and a person should be willing and be wise enough to change. It is recommended when a leader is coaching and mentoring employee should identify their weak points and help them improve. References Bass B. & Stogdill R. (1990).
