Illustrating the Three Models

These three contrasting positions constitute different “lenses” for viewing leadership. The differences among them can be illustrated by considering a hypothetical experiment. On one hand, we have an array of people who view themselves or are viewed by others as candidates for a leadership position. On the other hand, we have a set of situations, each requiring the exercise of leadership.

The people could also vary in such things as their aptitudes, abilities, and other personality dispositions.
