This will be difficult to select only one. I believe that all theories have their great dead to contribute to the application to leadership today. Current theories are really just further research keeping up with times and styles of leadership which has been exhibited in some form. Since the discussion state that I must select a current one, it will be “Responsible leadership.” I chose this one due to personal experience I had in my work place. Where I currently work some of the leadership styles there do not hold responsibility when they make a wrong decision for the company, however they place blame on others when been advised not to invest in a particulate investment or decision. We signed a contract for an application that majority of us voted not to invest in, which turned out to be a big disaster and cause the company more money. I would like to see Responsibility leadership evolve in accountability and not being a leaders but work with their management. It’s ok to fail the people some time, they need to know your not perfect and make poor decision. I’m quite sure we all have made some really bad decision pertaining to work.

A particularly relevant leadership style that has emerged from the ethics literature is that of the responsible leader. It has been argued that responsible leadership is distinct from other leadership constructs in that it draws on discourse ethics theory and views leadership as a leader stakeholder interaction. Moreover, it does not view leadership effectiveness in terms of financial performance as a driver of leadership behavior, but rather as directed toward gaining legitimate solutions for all affected parties (Voegtlin, Patzer, & Scherer, 2012). A central theme of such leadership is the obligation to balance the needs of multiple stakeholders (Waldman & Galvin, 2008)

In today’s society we try to focus on all current information, which the here in now. However, I believe that the historical theories in application to leadership are just important if not more. On the other hand, current leadership is forever growing variety of theories to explain the concept and practice of leadership.
