Six Leadership Styles by Daniel Goleman

Six Leadership Styles by Daniel Goleman | Leadership | 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.

What is your leadership style!

The best leaders don’t know just one style of leadership – they are skilled at several, and have the flexibility to switch between styles as the circumstances dictate.

Evolutions in Leadership

Evolutions in Leadership | Leadership | Scoop.it

As the structure of our society has changed, as social dynamics have moved away from authoritarian models towards more socially collaborative ones, backed up by the speed, breadth and fluidity of communications, so the nature of leadership has changed too

No longer purely authoritarian (although often needing to include elements of this), there is a more constructivist dimension: leadership created in the moment through consensus of the community. Leadership of it’s time: a time when communities enable us to be more effective, to create ever stronger meaning and share it ever more widely.


Yesterdays leaders may have been about bluster and orders, today’s are about curation, sharing, social capital and trust. Today’s successful leaders gain support through their communities and provide a light touch of leadership on decisions that are co-ownedthroughout the community.
