For over centuries, people have debated whether leader is born or made. According to chapter 2 in the leadership book, it states that researchers believe great leaders possessed a set of traits, which portrayed and defined them. However in the chapter 3, “it suggests that knowledge and abilities are needed for effective leadership.” (Leadership, 43) Consequently what leaders really are, born or made? For decades ago, researchers started to answer the subjects. Yet, even now the debates are still going on. The phase “Charismatic leadership” really caught in my eye when I was reading. A charismatic leader is essentially a very skilled communicator, who is able to arouse strong emotions in followers and inspire them to new heights. And I believe people follow someone who they personally admire. However, charisma is just one of the measures of a person’s character. A great leader could make up with so many characteristics. Such as intelligence, self-confidence, determination, integrity, sociability and etc. As we can see, traits indeed played an integral role in a leadership. On the other side, skill approach opens a door for those people who believe leadership can be learned and developed. Leaders can learn from their daily craft, from watching other leaders, from getting feedbacks and even from a training program. Afterwards, they modify and develop effect skills as well as behaviors to handle tasks in a more efficient way. As above, I would like to conclude…

would like to argue that ‘one size fits all’ principle is not suitable for leadership styles and the leader has to tailor his/her style in relation to the different contexts he is involved. I would also like to argue that over time, the experience and the knowledge the leader gains through his contingent leadership styles make him a Charismatic individual in the longer run.

This chapter focused on leadership and the closely related topic of influence processes. The study of leadership has been approached from trait, behavioral, and contingency per- spectives. Although most modern theories of leadership can be considered contingency
theories, the trait and behavioral approaches are by no means dead; they still offer some insight into leadership processes.

There are many different types of leadership styles some are effective in different ways some are not. in world war II a man came who’s leadership style was similar to today’s army he believed…
