A Review of Leadership Research.
Mitchell, Eugene S.
This paper surveys the history and development of some of the major theories and concepts of leadership: (1) the trait approach--research focusing on personality characteristics presumed to set leaders apart from others; (2) leader behavior--what leaders actually do; and (3) situational variables--characteristics of the particular situation. Leadership research in the area of librarianship is then reviewed. Twenty-five references are listed. (MES)
