The term Leadership is often read and considered as complex phenomenon as it reflects different definitions from various authors and scholars. For the purpose of this paper, I have considered the definition from Lussier (2013) who defined leadership as the process of communicating ideas, gaining acceptance of the vision and motivating followers to support and implement the ideas through others. A leader always has the ability to influence others and there are three types of Managerial Leadership skills, namely: Technical skills, Interpersonal Skills and Decision- Making skills. Technical skills are ideally concerned with the ability to use methods and techniques to perform a task; Interpersonal skills, on the other hand, focus solely on the ability to understand, communicate and work well with individuals and groups through developing effective relationships. Finally, decision-making skills involve the ability to conceptualise situations and select alternatives to solve problems and take advantage of opportunities (Faeth, 2010). The study is conducted in descriptive way and tried to address the approaches of leadership theories with the reinforcement of my own practice at my workplace. It considered the systematic review of the secondary sources including authors previous publications, journals, websites, other scholarly articles and academic research publications.
