8 Common♔Leadership Styles✬

8 Common♔Leadership Styles✬ | Leadership | Scoop.it

 

If you're leading well, you won't have just one leadership style. You'll mix and match to engage your team and meet your goals.

 

Look over these eight style types to see what you're doing right—and what you might be missing.

 

 

♔ A Winning Formula ♔

There is no such thing as a born leader. Leadership is an acquired attribute that begins early in school and on the playground.

 

Some children develop take-charge attitudes, some make friends fast, while others are happy just to make the team.

 

As time goes on, education, jobs, and life experiences shape a leader's philosophy and psychology. How best to get the job done and work with others?

 

How to set goals and objectives and manage their results?

 

The answers to these questions become a leader's winning formula for success.

 

But over time, a leader may find that her winning formula is not producing the results it used to.

 

New challenges require new leadership skills, behaviors, and ways of communicating.

Consider the eight leadership styles outlined here and the real-world leaders who exemplify them.

 

If you are aware of these different ways of leading, you can adapt your style to manage circumstances and advance your intended goals.

 

How do you decide which styles to employ?

 

Read, reflect, and go experiment.

Leadership Styles That Backfire | Leadership | Scoop.it

No two leadership styles are exactly alike. What’s more, different people respond to different leadership styles and different situations call for difference leadership styles.

With that said, there are some leadership styles that never work. They backfire every time they are tried!

Leader is not the individual who gives command to the forces, he is the one who takes decision and administers the movement of the legion. Leadership styles may vary; the leader may not always be the king, he may be the kingmaker too
