What are the relevant personality and motivational traits of good (and bad) leaders? Do leaders possess different types of intellectual capacities? How do effective leaders behave and what kinds of people follow them? What are the contextual/situational factors that give rise to leaders? How is leadership influenced by gender, cultural differences, and social networks? Professor Michael Mumford is one of the leading researchers on the topic of leadership and organizational behavior.
