Taking into account several features there have appeared 5 major models of leadership at least in the Western society. Later we will see leadership in the Eastern society, but now let’s look at a classification of leadership according to the following main characteristics as summarised by David Boje (2003):
Charismatic inspiration - attractiveness to others and the ability to leverage this esteem to motivate others. Preoccupation with a rôle - a dedication that consumes much of leaders life - service to a cause. A clear sense of purpose (or mission) - clear goals - focus – commitment.
Results-orientation - directing every action towards a mission - prioritizing activities to spend time where results most accrue. Optimism - very few pessimists become leaders. Rejection of determinism - belief in ones ability to "make a difference". Ability to encourage and nurture those that report to them - delegate in such a way as people will grow. Rôle models - leaders may adopt a persona that encapsulates their mission and lead by example. Self-knowledge (in non-bureaucratic structures). Self-awareness - the ability to "lead" (as it were) ones own self prior to leading other selves similarly.
One common attribute that signals any leadership is vision. This element is universally looked for in any kind of leadership. Vision is a fundamental force that moves the followers towards a goal.

Taylor (1856- 1915), husband and wife team Frank Gilbreth (1868-1924) and Lillian Gilbreth
