For over a hundred years, leadership has been an interesting topic for scholars and practitioners who try to understand what makes a good leader and effective leadership. Even today, the word "leadership" appears in the media almost every day and seems to remain in the centre of attention at least in the foreseeable future. This is due to the inherent belief that leadership is important for organisations and individuals to overcome challenges and make positive outcomes materialise. However, at the same time, leadership continues to be a fuzzy term which most people find difficult to define, and hence the nature of leadership and what makes good leaders are still hugely disputed. Therefore, it is this importance and ambiguity of leadership that probably will fuel curious researchers to study it for years to come.
