6 Leadership Styles that create excellence

Leadership Styles

Maybe you lead by your authoritative personality or by identifying the most suitable task on the basis of team member’s ability. Or maybe you inspire your colleagues and team members to share your vision and passion.

Whatever your way maybe, you have picked one or more of the leadership styles to foster growth. Sticking to one style may not work for every situation or with every team member. So, why not reinvent your leadership style by picking the right one for you or maybe by adopting a blend of few?

Most influential leaders reinvent themselves on a regular basis as there is no leadership style that is suitable for all. Great leaders often switch their style of leadership depending on the circumstances. An effective leadership can be implemented when the leader has a clear idea that a leadership style that works on a group of trained professionals may not work on a group of workers who don’t have any clear idea about their roles and have poor attitudes. So, effective leaders assess their style and change them constantly to meet different requirements.

Some of the leadership styles are mentioned below to help you pick yours:

Charismatic/ Value-based leadership

This type of leader is highly performance-oriented, decisive, visionary, inspirational, self sacrificial and has integrity. He stresses high standards, innovation, and decisiveness among his team members and seeks to inspire people around a vision. Such leaders create a passion among them to perform, and does so by firmly holding on to core values. This is one of the most desirable and positive leadership styles that motivate employees to do better.

Team-oriented leadership

This style of leadership instills pride, loyalty, and collaboration among organizational members. Such leader highly values team cohesiveness and a common purpose. Such leaders are team integrators, diplomatic and administratively competent. This leadership style highly influences team collaboration in a positive manner.

Participative leadership

Such leadership encourages input from others in decision-making and implementation. The leader emphasizes delegation and equality among all the members of the organization and follows a non-autocratic approach.

Humane leadership

This leadership style stresses compassion and generosity. The leader who adopts this style is patient, supportive, and concerned with the well-being of others. Modesty is one of the major characteristics of this human-oriented leader.

Self-protective leadership

This kind of leader emphasizes procedural, status-conscious and face-saving behaviors. This leadership style is not desirable as the leader focuses on the safety and security of an individual or a particular group. Such leader is self-centered, status-conscious, conflict inducer, face saver and procedural which lasts a negative impression among co-workers and other organizational members.

Autonomous leadership

This leader is individualistic, independent, and self-centric. This is the least desirable leadership style but is sometimes necessary to accomplish some of the organizational goals or to deliver some desired results.

You may create a blend of your own leadership style by merging some of the above-mentioned styles and implement them in improving your leadership skills.
