What is leadership? Why do we need it? What does it mean to be a good leader? Are leaders made or born? These questions have been asked for decades, and this course attempts to answer these questions. We start by defining leadership as the ability to influence people to achieve common goals through shared purposes. From there, we will briefly discuss the history of leadership studies, then move on to a review of Trait and Behavioral Leadership Theory.

After completing this course, you should be able to:

  • Define leadership
  • Explain how leaders and followers influence an organization
  • Identify components of the Big 5 theory and traits and skills that leaders possess
  • Recognize various leadership roles
  • Recall the concepts behind the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator

All materials are included in this course.
