Social Leadership



Social Leadership:

+ add to my flashcards cite this term

In contrast to task leadership, people with social leadership skills are good at getting members of the team excited about their task, increasing energy, inspiring team spirit, and reducing conflict. Often being a democratic type of leadership, social leaders often produce high performing teams and may be popular with their subordinates...after all, don't you want to follow a leader that makes you feel enrgized, good about yourself and your effort, and gets the team working effectively?
