Author(s): Utku DEM?RC?

This study aims to investigate deeply Mumford and his colleagues’ skill based model of leadership. Relevant to this matter, leadership skill approach which is also known as capability model is examined in order to clarify the model. After that individual attributes of leaders which consist of general cognitive ability, crystallized cognitive ability, motivation and personality are studied critically. These attributes influence competencies of the leader. For this reason, problem solving skills, social judgment skills and the notion of knowledge is investigated in detail. In addition to this, leadership outcomes is explained in terms of problem solving and performance in the third and the last part of skill model. As a result, it is clear from academia and reality that the skills model put forward a suggestion to solve ill-defined and complex organizational problems. In addition to this, it is apparent that not only effective leaders need to have individual attributes but also they need to have other leadership skills to cope with complicated organisational problems.
