Leadership Classifications
By Senyo Adjibolosoo

It is important to provide relevant ideas regarding how to identify the types of leadership present in society. This information can be useful to people who are interested in working to develop excellence in leadership. It will also provide important data for the evaluation of leadership effectiveness and how to proceed with the task of leadership development.

The focus of this chapter is on leadership classifications from the human factor perspective.

Detailed analyses and discussions are presented on Type I leadership. From this discussion, Type II and Type III leadership are deduced and briefly discussed.

Gleaning from the discussions presented in previous chapters, I classify existing leadership vintages into three unique groups as Type I, who are honest, selfless, serviceable, and principle-centered, Type II, dishonest, selfish, self-serving, and non-principle-centered, and Type III, a crossbreed between Type I and Type II.

To comprehend leadership successes or failures, one needs to delve deeper into the minds of the people who fit each type of leadership category. This task can be effectively accomplished through a thorough study of each individual leader's Map of Being.

However, to articulate the concept of leading as a result of what you are, I choose to focus the discussion in this chapter on the Type I leader. Since one can easily identify who a Type II leader is from the discussions presented on the Type I leader, only a little space is devoted to the Type II leader in this chapter.

It must be kept in mind that a Type III leader also exists. This type of leadership is a cross between the Type I and Type II leaders. A brief discussion is also presented at the end of this chapter on Type III leaders.
