The success or failure of a course of action can be determined by factors totally outside the realm of control of a leader. In this increasingly competitive environment where information and knowledge continue to expand exponentially, a cognizance of these factors and issues arising from them may assist leaders improve the effectiveness of decision making. This paper reviews issues of context of effective leadership nowadays, identify the factors that contribute to this effectiveness and the leadership style and issues which are important for an effective leadership decision making in the era of globalization and financial crisis.
