Path-Goal theory of leadership behaviour
The Path-Goal model of leadership behaviour has been profounded by Robert J. House. This model emphasises that the leader behaviour be such as to complement the group work setting. He sets up clear path and clear guide lines through which the subordinates can achieve both personal and work related goals and assist them in achieving these goals.
This will make the leader beahviour acceptable and satisfying, to subordinates since they see the behaviour as an immediate source of satisfaction or as a source of obtaining future satisfaction. This approach is largely derived from the Path-Goal approach to motivation.
