In such frameworks leadership played a major role in creating stability and maintaining the status quo.

Nevertheless, most traditional principles stress on common characteristics and behaviours that a leader possesses and his unique ability to control, direct and influence followers to desired outcomes (Gibney, 2009). On that note, Burns (1978) argues that the notion of leadership formed with emphasis on leaders’ traits and personalities and these characteristics are still emphasised in contemporary organisations and cannot be overlooked.
