What is traditional leadership?

Traditional leadership refers to a more conventional or classic style of leadership that typically involves a top-down approach where the leader makes decisions, gives instructions, and expects followers to comply without much input or participation in the decision-making process. In traditional leadership, the focus is often on maintaining stability, following established procedures, and upholding existing structures and practices. This style of leadership may be more hierarchical and directive compared to more modern leadership approaches like transformational or servant leadership.
