What are leadership concepts? Leadership concepts refer to factors that leaders consider when applying a leadership style and overseeing a team of individuals. These principles focus on ideas and perceptions about the traits leaders should have and how they should perform in a leadership role.
Leadership is essentially a continuous process of influencing behavior. It may be considered in context of mutual relations between a leader and his followers. The leader tries to influence the behavior of individuals or group of individuals around him to achieve desired goals.
Leaders need to adapt their leadership concepts approach according to follower willingness and ability. To illustrate with an example, in a group of people there are two workers who have low confidence and are generally unwilling to do any work. With these two people, the leader will specify firmly what needs to be done (Telling).
