This chapter examines leadership capabilities. These are the qualities (traits, skills, abilities, mindsets and behaviours) that are thought to distinguish ‘leaders’ from ‘followers’ and/or to contribute to successful or effective leadership. The chapter explores a variety of frameworks, from trait and style theory to behaviour theory and competency frameworks, and looks at this not only in terms of individuals but also of groups such as teams, boards and partnerships. The discussion explores in more depth recent interest in emotional intelligence and leadership with political awareness, before looking at the evidence about popular transformational and transactional leadership theory, and then post-transformational theory.

Keywords:   leadership capabilities, post-transformational leadership, effective leadership, style theory, behaviour theory, emotional intelligence, political awareness
