From the Paper:

"Leadership training is essential for everyone in management position. If a person is to supervise or lead a team of workers, it is important that organization provides sufficient leadership training so that this person can choose the right style for himself and can become a more effective leader. In many organizations either such leadership training is unheard of or it is simply not effective. Normally organizations will invest in their future leaders by sending them to attend seminars and courses on the subject of leadership which helps them attain self confidence as a leader, learn more effective ways of communicating and building a professional vision for themselves and their teams. However in organizations where this is not done properly, managers can find themselves in a fix. For example in this given case, Cheryl, Rob and Linda were promoted to leadership positions without any training in that area."
