Examining the Mechanism for the Transferability of Leadership Elements to Students: The Case of the Catholic University Institute of Buea (CUIB)
This paper recommends what could be a standard definition for the word “leadership”, as it found out that there has been no standard way for defining leadership, and that others have defined leadership based on the leadership elements a leader has but failed to rethink that one could be a bad leader and as such the leadership elements could not be transferred (passed on) to heirs for the simple reason that no one likes bad things.
