JohnWell if you listen to CatBert the evil director of Human Resources. A Leader actually is some one who trades Fake future things for real now things. So If you work this weekend then one day you will be promoted. . . If no one else better . . . or more qualified comes along. But if you read some of Malcolm Gladwell’s work Outliers for one. He suggests that Coaches and teachers of young children tend to focus on the players and students that are the biggest and most mature. Ie The kid born in January will be bigger and possible more mature then the one born in Oct. The bigger kid would make the better hockey player and the more mature the better student. Since this kind thing starts early in life I would assume that it carries up to adult hood. As for the most effective, on your list it would be the second leader. But his job would be easier if he tough the more advanced stuff to his quicker students and then had them help him train, teach and lead the others. That way they learn themselves through teaching and they get some experience at leading. That is the way the Navy’s engineering training system works. And when it works, it works well. But when it does not then it usually has to go toward the second leadership style you suggested.
