Abstract:

Leadership is an important feature of every sphere of human activity, whether at play, work or at war. Wherever there are two or more people functioning together, there is need for leadership. This is equally true in animals, either at sea or on land. From time immemorial, the subject has been a vital factor responsible for the victory or defeat of armies everywhere in the world. For centuries, it was an accepted convention that a leader inherited his position or seized it by virtue of his dominant personality, strength or wealth. However, this belief does not exist in the modern society and scholars have proved that leadership could be learned and that certain qualities, or traits are invariably associated with leadership. Keeping with this traditional approach, the study of this subject was mainly confined of the leader, his traints and principles of leadership. Today, however, researchers in the field of leadership have come with a new approach based on how the leader interacts with his group and situation. This is called The functional approach concept.
