Leadership style are those behaviors demonstrated by a leader during certain management situations. There is no “one-size-fit-all” leadership style that makes a leader effective and different styles are called for in various circumstances. . Daniel Goleman’s (2000) research found that leaders use six leadership styles: Commanding – Direct and demands immediate compliance; Visionary – Rallies people toward a vision; Affiliative – creates agreement and an emotional bond; democratic – builds commitment and participation; Pace-setting – sets high standards for performance and coaching – develops people for the future. It is not out of the ordinary to use a combination of these styles. It is essential to develop your leadership style as your style sets the climate of the organization, affects performance and ultimately your organization’s bottom line.
