Leadership Styles

‘The best leader is the one who has sense enough to pick good men to do what he wants done, and the self-restraint to keep from meddling with them while they do it.’ – Theodore Roosevelt

What are leadership styles?

John Kotter defined the term leadership styles as follows: the methods of leaders in providing direction, executing plans and motivating people. Many styles of leadership have been identified over the years, as exhibited by leaders in the field of business, politics, military or other fields.

Most business professionals develop their own leadership style based on a few factors such as experience and personality. In addition, the unique needs of the organization and the organizational culture also play an important role in the style of leadership. Every leader is therefore different, but certain styles are often used in the workplace.

These include: Autocratic Leadership, Authoritarian Leadership, Laissez-Faire Leadership, Transformational Leadership and Functional Leadership. Classical leadership style theories include Kurt Lewin’s Four Leadership Styles and the Four Factor Theory of Leadership.
