Goleman’s 6 Leadership Styles – A Styles Models of Leadership

We’ve seen models of leadership based on personal traits, individual behaviors, and the roles we need to fulfill. Another approach relates to the way we lead: that is, the style we adopt.

Watching this video is worth 2 Management Courses CPD Points*.

You’ll find many different articulations of leadership styles. Perhaps the this set of three styles:
1. Authoritarian, autocratic, or directive style
2. Democratic, or shared style
3. Laissez-faire, or genuine style

However, I recommend the book, ‘The New Leaders’, by Daniel Goleman, Richard Boyatzis, and Annie McKee – https://geni.us/5ziIw. In it, the authors offer us six leadership styles, which expand on the three I mentioned.

1. Commanding leadership style
2. Pace-setting leadership style
3. Democratic leadership style
4. Affiliative leadership style
5. Coaching leadership style
6. Visionary leadership style

There are a vast number of Leadership books – perhaps more than on any other management-related topic. And there is also a huge range represented in different lists of the best. This no-doubt reflects the different contexts for leadership.

So, any recommended reading list of leadership books must be particularly subjective. I have chosen those that made me think, and which are of particular value to managerial leaders: not sportspeople, military leaders, or CEOs. In no particular order:

📖 Leaders Eat Last
📖 Start with Why
📖 Humble Leadership
📖 The Leadership Challenge
📖 The New Leaders
📖 Shackleton’s Way
📖 Why should Anyone be Led by You
📖 The Habit of Excellence
