White Paper 10 Critical Leadership Competencies in the Overall Context of Leadership Development Theories. EXECUTIVE SUMMARY, Leadership as a discipline has been widely studied for a long period of time Many theories of. leadership have emerged each with its own attempt to help us better understand and develop. leadership capability, The 6 main categories of theories include trait behavioral power and influence situation charismatic. and transformational This paper discusses each category in turn then Skillsoft s modern evidence. based approach to leadership development and the 10 critical SLDP competencies. White Paper 10 Critical Leadership Competencies in the Overall Context of Leadership Development Theories. CATEGORIES OF LEADERSHIP THEORY, The trait approach to leadership emphasizes the personal traits of leaders The underlying assumption is that certain. people possess innate characteristics that make them better leaders than others Theories included in the trait. approach include the Great Man theory of leadership Stogdill s leadership traits and the theories espoused by. Maccoby John Gardner and Jim Collins,BEHAVIORAL, The behavioral approach switched the emphasis to observations of what effective and ineffective leaders do on the. job so this approach takes a more pragmatic application approach Theories included in the behavioral approach. include Mintzberg s 10 managerial roles Kotter s leadership factor Stewart s three part theory of management Kouzes. and Posner s leadership challenge and Ulrich and Zenger s Results Based Leadership. POWER AND INFLUENCE, The power and influence approach studies the influence processes at work between leaders and other individuals.
including those they lead The theories included in the power and influence approach include the two faces of. power Winter s theory of leadership The West Point Way of leadership social exchange theory and the strategic. contingencies theory,SITUATIONAL, The situational approach pays attention to the contextual factors and asks the question of how the larger contextual. situation affects the leadership task by examining the nature of the work performed by leader and team the individual. characteristics of members of the team etc Theories included in this approach are Blanchard s situational theory of. leadership House s path goal theory of leadership Fiedler s contingency model Leadership substitutes theory the. multiple linkage model and the cognitive resources theory. White Paper 10 Critical Leadership Competencies in the Overall Context of Leadership Development Theories. CHARISMATIC, The charismatic approach to leadership studies followers perceptions of the leader s traits and behaviors the. situational context and the needs of the followers Theories included in this approach are House s theory of. charismatic leadership attribution theory of charisma and the self concept theory. TRANSFORMATIONAL, Finally the transformational approach is viewed as a process by which leaders and their direct reports inspire each. other to elevate moral conduct The Warren Bennis theory of leadership James Macgregor Burns theory of leadership. Bass theory of transformational leadership Tichy and Devanna s transformational leadership process and Schein s. model of organizational culture and leadership are all included in this approach. THE SKILLSOFT APPROACH TO LEADERSHIP DEVELOPMENT, While each of these approaches and each of the theories within an approach has merit Skillsoft prefers not to design. a leadership program around a single idiosyncratic leadership theory However the approach taken comes closest. to the behavioral approach and includes aspects of the trait approach There is a major emphasis on developing. competencies and mindsets that facilitate collaborative and collective leadership practices These practices are the. lynchpin for effective leadership in the digital economy where team members can rise at any given time to the top. when their particular skills or expertise are needed to boost the levels of creativity agility innovation and speed of. decision making Collaborative leadership draws upon the notion of servant leadership but with service to the team. and collective leadership relies upon the self organizing of teams to solve problems more quickly in an environment of. uncertainty and complexity, Instead of narrowly developing the program to reflect only the specific theories of Mintzberg Zenger Kotter Posner or.
others The Skillsoft Leadership Development Program espouses 10 critical evidence based behavioral competencies in. an overall portfolio of 30 modern leadership development competencies Skillsoft uses an evidence based approach to. arrive at the set of competencies and more importantly the design and instructional strategies used in the program to. make sure that the content is effective, White Paper 10 Critical Leadership Competencies in the Overall Context of Leadership Development Theories. The 10 critical leadership competencies are based on the results of a sub set of well executed and highly regarded. studies from both industry and academia ranging from The Five Practices of Exemplary Leadership espoused in LPI. to Google s rigorous Project Oxygen research which informed the discussion of critical management and leadership. competencies The 8 attributes that Google found in their original Project Oxygen research provide a comprehensive. although incomplete picture of the essential elements of effective management leadership Below is the list of the 8. competencies resulting from Google s Project Oxygen work. Since the original research concluded Google subsequently added two additional competencies diversity inclusion. and collaboration Google included these additional competencies as a result of the work that specifically highlights the. importance of psychological safety in teams research on diversity and inclusion and the importance of establishing. very clear performance expectations, It is important to highlight that the attributes for improving manager leader effectiveness rest on a number of. evidence based assumptions These assumptions include the following. 1 Management consists of a set of describable articulable behaviors. 2 These behaviors are broadly applicable to diverse functional groups and to differing nationalities and cultures with. only minor adaptation if at all, 3 Managers can become more effective at these behaviors through a combination of feedback training. development reflection and practice, 4 Effective management is as much about developing people as it is about getting the work done. 5 Effective management is more about raising the employees level of accomplishment than removing sub par. performers or limiting dysfunctional behaviors These assumptions are heavily supported by research. 1 Google s Project Oxygen Do Managers Matter David A Garvin Alison Berkley Wagonfeld and Liz Kin Harvard Business School Case Study 5.
