Abstract

Functional Leadership approach focuses on addressing specific leader behaviours expected to contribute to organizational team effectiveness. The approach argues that the leader's main job is to see that whatever is necessary to team needs is taken care of. A good leader must ensure they have contributed to team effectiveness and cohesion and these are key aspects in the current 4th Industrial Revolution in the mining sector. The application of Functional Leadership in successful operation of the mining sector is critical for the positive growth of this sector through optimum team performance.
