        Backup (Leadership Theory)
  •   Behavioral approach - Stewart’s Three Part
      Theory of Management.
  •   Simba had inherent Demands placed by his
      father, mother, Nala, and generally speaking by
      the animal kingdom to be the next king.
  •   Constraints that were placed upon him,
      primarily by his unscrupulous uncle Scar.
        – Scar murdered Simba’s father (Mufasa)
           and blamed Simba for it.
        – Guilt, fear of rejection by the lion tribe, and
           uncertainty that Simba “ran away to never
           return.”
  •   Simba then chose to live his life via the “hakuna
      matata” concept, or the no worries, problem free
      philosophy.
  •   Though, in time, Simba realized that his duties
      and responsibilities (demands) to the animal
      kingdom were of critical importance.
  •   Simba decided to return to Pride Rock to
      challenge Scar for the animal kingdom throne.
  •   Ultimately, Simba defeated Scar and became
      the one true king of Pride Rock.
  •   Simba remembered who he really was, the king;
      as he took his place in the “circle of life.”
