Six Leadership Styles by Daniel Goleman

Six Leadership Styles by Daniel Goleman | ESP Business English | Scoop.it

Daniel Goleman, in his article “Leadership That Gets Results”, has identified six different leadership styles, and he believes that good leaders will adopt one of these six styles to meet the needs of different situations.

 

None of the six leadership styles by Daniel Goleman are right or wrong – each may be appropriate depending on the specific context. Whilst one of the more empathetic styles is most likely to be needed to build long-term commitment, there will be occasions when a commanding style may need to be called upon, for example, when a rapid and decisive response is required.

Latvia caps years of austerity with euro zone membership

Latvia caps years of austerity with euro zone membership | ESP Business English | Scoop.it
By Aija Krutaine and Nerijus Adomaitis RIGA (Reuters) - Latvia joined the euro zone on Wednesday, banking on its experience of austerity to bring it prosperity in a currency union where other economies have floundered. The Baltic country of just 2 million people became the bloc's 18th member at midnight (2200 GMT), taking a step further out of the shadow of neighbouring Russia a decade after joining the European Union and NATO. Latvia's acting prime minister, Valdis Dombrovskis, who led his country through its worst economic crisis since it left the former Soviet Union in the early 1990s, said euro adoption was an opportunity, but not a guarantee of wealth, and the country should not relax its fiscal policy.

Theretherefore is no cookie-cutter approach to motivating your people. What inspires one person may leave the next cold.

This will help you get your workforce aligned and moving in the same direction, and you'll see incredible returns.

emiliede's curator insight, January 15, 2:37 AM
Multichannel retail requires channel-synthesizing technology. Analytics bring science to the art of retail. Mobility is much more than a smartphone app.Visibility adds value to inventory. Customer relationship management never gets easier.Integration is everything. Multichannel retail must be seamless—for both retailers and customers—and that requires a level of systems and data integration that goes well beyond what most companies have in place.Your customers can (and should) be anywhere. The transaction hinges on having the right product at the right time and place and at the best possible price.Develop a strategy for showrooming. Go social, because you already are. Retailers must plug into the social buzz, listen to customers, capitalize on what they learn, and use social tools and marketing best practices to build even better and more seamless customer relationships.

My grandfather had nothing and worked into his 80's.  He lead my family. Jane Goodall is a leader in saving the wild life.  I am very involved in that.  Henri Matisse was a leader in simplicity in Art; it doesn't have to be detailed to get the point across. I think President Bill Clinton was the best leader the US has seen as he helped college students and eliminated our deficit.  CHef Gordon Ramsey is an amazing leader although he runs with an iron fist, he commands respect and excellence in his kitchen.

No man (or woman) is an island, and business owners need to seek advice and guidance from other successful business owners, if they themselves are to become successful in their respective endeavours.

 

One of the best ways to become better as a business owner, is to apply relevant advice that other business owners have successfully applied to their businesses, that they themselves received from others who went before them.

 

This excellent article, drawing on feedback from 13 successful Australian entrepreneurs, offers 13 great pieces of sound business advice that any business owner can take on board to improve the performance of their own business.
