How should leadership be? Should a leader supervise too less or too little? Is there a measure for how much she should get involved in the subordinates’ work? Well, there is no single answer to questions such as these, because it is impossible to generalize. Each situation and each individual is unique and different. Leadership is not some kind of assembly line production of standard hand-me-downs.
So, leadership is said to be mature, and will eventually become effective when it succeeds in realizing how to use the right approach for handling each person. This is the real hallmark of sound leadership, and it takes good talent, practice and experience to cultivate it.
Never a one-size-fits-all quality
Leadership is never a standard set of general processes and methods. It should tailor itself to different situations and individuals to help employees become what they can be. This is the best measure of success of leadership, because it should mentor people and help them reach their true potential by helping them identify and utilize their strengths and underplaying their weaknesses. This calls for instilling versatility at leadership.
