Leadership Development에 대한 내용을 리포트로 작성한 내용입니다.
먼저 리더십이 무엇인지에 대해서 서론에 집중적으로 논의하였습니다.
웬지 추상적인 것일 것같은 리더십의 정의와 개념들을 여러 학자들의 학설로 뒷받침하였습니다.
리더쉽과 매지니먼트사이에서 혼동되는 부분이 있으시다면 참고하는데 도움이 될 거 같습니다.
그리고 리더십에 대한 대부분의 이론들을 요약 정리해 놓았습니다.
참고로 교수님으로부터 66점을 받았는데 점수의 감점요인은 적적한 예의 부족과 결론부분에서 미흡한 점이 지적되었습니다..하지만 이론부분은 좋은 점수를 받았습니다.

On the other hand, poor leadership leaded an organization to total failure. Leadership development which raised a leader was the matter of importance which would lead to the rise and fall of an organization.
Moreover, with the advent of knowledge society, developing leaders has become more an issue of importance for every organization today.

What then is leadership? It could be inferred from ‘lead’ which simply means ‘show the way’. It is a relationship through which one person influences the behaviour or actions of other people (Laurie, 2007) and also, according to Robbins (2005), it is the ability to influence a group toward the achievement of goals.
Then, is a manager in an organization a leader? Should the organization, therefore, put their efforts on developing a manager’s skills and knowledge to survive in competition?
