Six Leadership Styles by Daniel Goleman

Six Leadership Styles by Daniel Goleman | Executive Development in Africa | 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.

Become a leader, is not doing extraordinary things, participating in strange team incentive sessions, but having clear vision while accepting that change is part of the game and having human values that enable a leader to connect to others. Vision is about innovation, analysis and understanding our environment...what our MBA International Paris is all about…www.mbaip.com

"In theory, many of [publisher] courses could easily act as stand-alone products," replacing university courses.


Derived from this: "It’s sensitive terrain for the publishers as well. In theory, many of their courses could easily act as stand-alone products they could sell directly to students who need to fill a social science or math requirement. Pearson PLC could become Pearson U. But the publishers don’t have college accreditation. They need the colleges to turn a course into something that can count toward a degree, and they don’t want to undercut their main market."
