A Theoretical and Methodological Evaluation of Leadership Research.
Lashbrook, Velma J.; Lashbrook, William B.
This paper isolates some of the strengths and weaknesses of leadership research by evaluating it from both a theoretical and methodological perspective. The seven theories or approaches examined are: great man, trait, situational, style, functional, social influence, and interaction positions. General theoretical, conceptual, and measurement issues are considered as they relate to methodology. If theoretical and methodological improvements are made, the study concludes, leadership research can make a significant contribution to our accumulation of knowledge concerning small groups.
