behaviour theorists

behaviour theorists

Behavioral is a big leap from Trait Theory, in that it assumes that leadership capability can be learned, rather than being inherent. This opens the floodgates to leadership development, as opposed to simple psychometric assessment that sorts those with leadership potential from those who will never have the chance.
Behavioral theories of leadership do not seek inborn traits or capabilities. Rather, they look at what leaders actually do.
