Abstract
This report consists of a review of the literature on effective leadership within the context of the military. More specifically, task-oriented, person-oriented, and transformational leadership are discussed as they pertain to some of the personal characteristics (i.e., androgyny, multiple intelligences, and behavioural flexibility) possessed by effective leaders. A consideration of gender implications and military culture provides a framework within which such personal attributes can be contextualized. The utility of such a conceptualization lies within its ability to consider a multitude of variables in the assessment of effective military leadership.
