Running Head: LEADERSHIP - TASK 1 2 A1. Leadership Style Upon conducting research, it is clear that the definition of “leadership” is not agreed upon. It is fluid, based upon many perceptions, situations, and surroundings.

For example, utilizing the “Leadership Self-Assessment

According to Humphreys (2002), successful leaders do this by applying their leadership knowledge and skills.
