Abstract

This paper addresses the various leadership styles, attributes, skills, and behaviors that are representative of an effective leader. Within the construct of this paper, transformational and servant leadership models are first analyzed and evaluated. The transformational and servant leadership models were chosen because of their interrelated styles, attributes, skills and behaviors which are thoroughly addressed in this paper. Then an optimal mix of leadership styles, attributes, skills, and behaviors are established. This optimal mix of leadership styles, attributes, skills, and behaviors are then synthesized within a five-dimensional construct which was developed by the author to create a Dynamic Leadership Model (DLM). A thorough understanding of the DLM enhances a leader's capability to establish, implement, and control organizational change strategies in a cultural-cognitive institutional environment.

Keywords: leadership, model, transformational, servant, skills, style, behaviors, attributes, traits, culture, cultural, institutional, strategy
