Bosch, M.J. (2011). Major Schools of Leadership. Cuaderno ESE.


In this paper, I review the Leadership literature and Leadership research. I propose a framework based on how different theoretical approaches study the influencing process that the leader exerts. I divide the influencing process into two dimensions. The first dimensions categorizes whether the influence comes from fix or adaptable characteristics of the leader. The second dimensions categorizes whether the process focuses on the individual or on the relation. Those combinations give us a matrix with four quadrants. Using these four quadrants I review the major leadership theories and summarize all of the
important findings.

Keywords: leadership, leadership theories.
