Trait Theory suggests that there are particular characteristics and qualities which can be identified in successful leaders such as intelligence, charisma and ambition. Behavioral Theory focuses on how a leader’s actions impact the team, for example by setting clear goals, providing support or using motivating language. The Skills Approach considers certain skills and abilities as important components of good leadership such as problem-solving, communication and decision-making.
