Leadership is unquestionably one of the most critical components in the success of any organization. The business annals provide ample testimony to this. Many instances can be found of high-profile characters whose influence has undoubtedly helped differentiate their company from the also-rans. Think Bill Gates, Steve Jobs or other such eminent leaders who are among the numerous examples. Anyone able to deliver the perfect formula for effective leadership would for sure soon become one wealthy individual. Alas, that day is not yet upon us. But it does not mean we have no insights into how leaders make their firms tick. Far from it. There is plenty to go on. An important contribution to success is the realization that no one-cap-fits-all approach to success exists. On the contrary, management practice comes in several different forms. It is knowing how to combine this range of available approaches that perhaps holds the key.
