In his youth-oriented speech about leadership, Dr. Eric Hollis describes different kinds of leaders and shares the importance of tenacity. Based on his personal experiences in the United States Navy, the speaker states that leadership is paramount because it is about giving vision to others. Additionally, research indicates most employees leave organizations due to poor leaders. He also says tenacity for education and having a support network shaped his success.
The speech about leadership explains three different styles: transactional, situational and transformational. While transaction-based leadership is the most straightforward, situational leadership is based on the task at hand as well as the maturity of the individual, where as transformation leadership focuses on the person being led, transforming the individual and motivating him or her to follow.
