There are several theories related to leadership, and although there are similarities and overlap in many of the theories, each theory has unique characteristics distinguishing it from the others. All leadership theories can be effective given the right situation and sector. Some industry sectors have different leadership needs; therefore, leadership theories that can best be applied in one sector may differ from the most effective leadership theories in other industry sectors.
