|Opis:||Some of our virtues are embellished with golden quality, while the others are tainted with grey shade. If people knew and understood their own personality and personality types of the others, the difficulties related to communication would significantly decrease. Such knowledge alleviates the understanding of other people’s reactions and statements. The purpose of this knowledge is to recognize and evolve our own positive characteristics as well as to control negative characteristics in order to reduce their effect.
Finding effective and efficient leadership style has always been an important part of studying the process of leadership. Nowadays, there are numerous convictions about the existence of the best style of management, which would be efficient in all kinds of situations. However, present-day situations are changing relentlessly, especially in the time of the economic crisis; therefore, such leadership style is no longer applicable. Accordingly, we can conclude that the leadership style is incorrect when applied in the same manner, in every situation, to any individual, and at all times.
Among other things, the leader’s personality traits have a significant influence on choosing the leadership style. The leader’s personality traits define his/her behavior, which can be extraverted or introverted, strong, confident, responsible or conscientious. They also define the leader’s behavior in relations with other people, and the way he/she accepts and carries out his/her own tasks. Nevertheless, we have to emphasize, that the personality traits are subject to changes. They can change in a positive or negative way according to will and wishes of the individual. There is no doubt that the leader’s personality has a major influence on the choice of leadership style. However, we cannot ignore the other important factors of influence, such as the situation in which a leader, an employee or organization are involved, effects of the environment and culture in the organization, personalities of employees, goals that have been set, etc.|
