What’s Leadership anyway?

An Overview of
Understanding Your Leadership Style 
By Chris Laney

Laney offered a brief overview of Goleman’s 6 styles of leadership (commanding, visionary, affiliative, democratic, pace setting, and coaching) and asked the reader to reflect on their style of leadership. He mentioned transformational, charismatic, servant, transactional and symbolic as other styles that we often hear in the media.  He reminded us that regardless of which style you are the more important piece is being flexible in your style.  Being able to understand  your context will help you choose a style that meshes best with your audience.

Leaders are always growing and reflection is part of that process. Have you thought about what kind of leader you are?
