Resources: The Art and Science of Leadership, Ch. 3 and Leadership Theories Matrix
As a leader, you often need to display or clarify a concept. A matrix is a grid that contains information and offers a visual model of ideas. For this assignment, you will create a matrix that explains leadership theories.
Research the following five leadership theories and include these in your matrix (use the matrix template provided):
      • Trait theories of leadership
      • Behavioral theories of leadership
      • Contingency models of leadership
      • Skills approaches to leadership
      • Situational methods of leadership
Develop the definition and characteristics of various leadership theories and approaches to leadership (trait leadership, behavioral leadership, contingency leadership, skills leadership and situational leadership). These should have sufficient depth to be able to
demonstrate a good understanding of the theory.
Provide one or more examples to support the definition or characteristics of each form of leadership. This should be more than just a further explanation of the theory. It should be an actual example of how the theory came into play or was demonstrated in a real
situation.
Write out your explanations in each section (a section includes the description of a particular theory and the examples of it) using about 350 words for each section. Therefore, the overall matrix should have at least 1750 words in total.
Format your Leadership Theory Matrix with the template and consistent with APA guidelines.
