‘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.
What are the most effective leadership styles in which situation? Is it possible to switch leadership style? Which ones do not always turn out to work well? What competence do I need to be a good leader? The articles on leadership styles are about different ways for leaders to take the organization to the next level.
Kurt Lewin’s leadership styles framework is a somewhat older one, as it debuted as early as 1930. However, it’s still relevant today because it divides leadership styles in to three easy-to-remember groups.
