Leaders are in charge of today's organizational progress and their influence over their employees has a direct effect on the success of corporations. Through numerous other studies, Appreciative Inquiry and servant leadership qualities have been associated with successful teams. Similarly, cognitive dissonance in individuals has been affiliated with an inability to progress forward in decisions and personal development. This study aims to discover to what extent leadership style and cognitive dissonance have an effect on team success. This study also hopes to raise awareness in leaders, teams, and individuals alike to the positive effects of Appreciative Inquiry and servant leadership, as well as bring an understanding of cognitive dissonance and how it can negatively impact a person's life
