Abstract : Most of the current literature on leadership is descriptive, detailing what leaders are or what leaders must do now that they are in leadership roles. Very little has been offered in the way of prescribing an approach ot leadership development, and assessment of leadership. The Perspective Approach offers this orientation by detailing four levels of traits and skills necessary in all leaders: Individual Traits, Professional Skills, Helping Skills, and Group Dynamics Skills. The Prescriptive Approach also discusses how these should be applied in leadership development to improve the quality and numbers of individuals capable of leading organizations in a increasingly diverse, complex social milieu.
