We offer three chapters in which various dimensions of the external context are considered—especially as they relate to Best Practices and leadership styles. In Chapter Seven we explore the type of work being done in an organization, while in Chapter Eight we look at the type of issues being confronted in the organization. Finally, in Chapter Nine, we review five other characteristics: the external environment, organizational structures and operations, organizational ownership, maturity level of the individuals and groups with which leader is working, and organizational culture. We will briefly consider each of these characteristics and suggest ways in which each of the five Best Practices and four leadership styles relates to this characteristic.
