The study will examine the leadership characteristics and skills and the leadership styles that promote a healthy culture. The discussion will include particular situations that involve crises, the use of power, and ethical leadership in a healthy organisation. Leadership can be simple or complex depending on the situation, the group, and the people involved. Direction and culture can affect each other. Regardless of the situation, there must be respect, transparency, and trust. There is an interconnection between leadership and organisational culture.
