< align="justify"p>The concern of leadership has attracted many scholars and intellects with the variety of their innate and derivative approaches. This concept has become a key concern in organizations within both the private and public sectors. It determines the successes or failures of any human endeavour and, such is determined by the type of leadership in place. This paper deals with the concept of leadership using a dialectical approach in the quest for a synthesis of its various components. The paper seeks a further retooling or recoiling of the hitherto mutually inclusive components of leadership and its various types.

In the process, while examining the linkage between the concepts of leadership and power and, the latter’s transformation into legitimate authority, the concept of change leadership which has gained a wider currency within the matrix of organizational and management studies and, its transcendental utility to the organizational terrains of various political economies and their landscapes was examined.

This examination was done within the context of a change leadership being a key to large-scale sustainable organizational and political reform in the quest for human productivity, improved morale and micro and macro political self-fulfilment. The study concludes with the emphasis that the evocation of the concept of leadership, its types and styles, to alter the behaviours of others in groups and organizations in the hunt for attainment of desired goals based on focused agenda setting will infinitely continue in our world, particularly at this period of the planetary phenomenon of globalization of human relational threads.
