Six Leadership Styles by Daniel Goleman

Six Leadership Styles by Daniel Goleman | Empowering Women | 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.

This struck such a cord with me.  I can pin point the moment when I recognised that my life was my responsibility, and can see the energy that flowed from that realisation and how it's influenced every decision and action in my life. We introduce the idea to our students in a general way, (Why is it your Mum's fault that you left your homework at home?Isn't it your responsibility?) but certainly don't help them to appreciate it deeply in their lives.

Jason Leong's curator insight, January 3, 2015 12:14 AM

"Despite the popularity of Maslow’s Hierarchy, there is not much recent data to support it. Contemporary science [...] instead points to three universal psychological needs. If you really want to [take] advantage of this new science – rather than focusing on a pyramid of needs – you should focus on: autonomy, relatedness, and competence."

Empathy: the last big business taboo?

Empathy: the last big business taboo? | Empowering Women | Scoop.it
Empathy must no longer be perceived as a soft overtly feminine skill but as a commercial tool that businesses ignore at their peril

 

Lack of empathy in the workplace is one of the reasons that women find it difficult to flourish in corporations. In the technology industry alone,41% of women leave before 10 years. Must the companies that make our machines treat their staff as if they were machines too?

 

We can see the empathy deficit in the culture of business. Most corporations have become places where 'systemisers' flourish. According to professor Simon Baron-Cohen, these are individuals who excel at logic and analysis but tend to perform worse at empathy skills. Systemisers are more likely to be male.

 

Corporations place very little value on the other extreme: the empathisers: These are people who are good at reading emotions and understanding the dynamics of a situation and they tend to be female.
