According toDarling-Hammond, 2015.,this theory focuses on overall organization ratherthan on one thing. Here, leaders promote change by both giving rewards and punishments. Dueto this employee are highly influenced as they develop a feeling of fear among them. Leadersgenerally follow this style when there is urgent need for change. Moreover, it has been said thatthere are many things which is taken into consideration. In this, strict and proper rules andregulations are set which has to be followed by employees failing to which results in punishment.in view ofBowe, Ball and Gold, 2017,in addition to this leader highly focuses on performanceof employees so that goals can be modified. They also evaluate it on basis of employee behaviorand culture. Usually, by giving rewards it becomes easy for leader to motivate others.Furthermore, employees are automatically encouraged when they see others are getting rewards.So, in order to attain those, they put more efforts in achieving their goals and objectives. IncontraryDowns and Pacion, 2016,said that employee performance is also enhanced due topunishment. The feeling of fear forces them in positive way. It motivated them to attain goals inspecified time manner.Great manIt is a historic concept in which leader explains or tells story about hero’s, their traits,features, etc. due to which individual are highly influenced. The individual inherits traits, skills,etc. or are influenced by their way of taking decisions. According toJordan, 2015,the leader isable to manage and solve all issues that exists. This makes it easy in creating a positiveenvironment. By applying new concept and styles leader is able to motivate employees. greatman theory is very complex as it requires frequent change in leadership styles in order to manageand encourage people. In the opinion ofMakel and Plucker, 2014,there has been not very highinfluence on employees due to this theory. It may be due to inconsistency in leadership styleemployee may not able to understand what basic motive of leader is.In a study conducted byJordan, 2015, leadership style is applied according to thesituation. But in most cases, it depends on traits of leader that which style is suitable. If leadertraits are highly developed it will be easy for him or her to motivate employees by applying anystyle. So, overall it generally depends on leader skills and abilities. A leader is developed whenthey are able to handle critical situation in easily. This becomes an idol if change is implementedwithin given time. Also, a leader must identify and analyze overall situation so that appropriatestyle can be applied. This also gives an insight to leader that what style will be suitable.3
