"She's a natural leader!" You've heard this said about people before in your life, and you may have even heard it said about you. But what does this mean, exactly? What is a leader, and how can you determine if someone is a "natural" leader? The answer lies in understanding leadership styles.
What are the 10 leadership styles?
A leadership style is the manner in which you go about providing direction, motivating people and implementing your plans when in a position of leadership. Through years of study, psychologists have identified ten leadership styles that characterize leaders of all types. Some of these leadership styles have been around for a while, while others are relatively new. Other styles could easily be added to this list, and some could be combined as they are somewhat similar, but this list is a comprehensive look at the way leaders lead.
Do you know your leadership style?
What type of leader are you? Understanding and embracing your own personal leadership style will help you understand why your team is or is not succeeding. Embracing leadership styles that stretch you past your limits will help you get even more out of the people you are leading, so your entire team will find success. A thorough understanding of leadership styles is the first step in understanding how to effectively lead the people under you.
