leaders use to influence followers, this book keys in on what effective leaders
really do and emphasizes how leaders can diagnose and modify situations and
followers to make their leadership a more positive and productive endeavor.

evaluations of several currently popular situational leadership theories. Part
II describes the five core leadership behavior patterns (supportiveness,
directiveness, participation, reward/punishment, and charismatic behavior).
Part III examines less-researched leader behavior patterns such as
boundary-spanning, building social exchanges, and followership. Part IV

development, and change, with a concluding chapter that integrates findings
from earlier chapters and describes popular leadership styles that are
combinations of the specific leader behaviors described earlier. For leadership
