In this module, you looked at various leadership theories/approaches in relationship to how to effectively lead. In this assignment, you will critically extend the leadership knowledge learned this module by reviewing the Leading Teams article and then comparing and contrasting the Situational Approach to leadership with the Style Approach to leadership while considering how metaphor might aid both leadership approaches in effectively leading a team. Consider if different metaphors would be required based on the leadership approach or if perhaps the same metaphor might work for both approaches. Once you have compared the approaches, you will justify (argue and support) which approach you believe would be most effective in leading teams along with discussing the metaphor(s) you would use with the approach.
