Brian, I agree with your thoughts on leadership, which is so much more than inspirtion and strategic thinking. In regards to your thoughtrs on the lack of reasearch for Situational Leadership, I believe it was derived from the research of (House, 1971; House & Mitchell, 1974) which was referred to as the path-goal theory of leadership, which states that a leaderís job is to help the work group attain the goals that they desire. Of course with the millions of mangers who utilize this approach, I would question if some research doesn't now exist.
