How people choose to lead can have a significant impact, not only on a company’s culture and its identity, but also on team and organizational performance.

People use many different leadership approaches. Some take a “hands off” approach, while others prefer to take more control.

It can be difficult to know which leadership style best suits your team, your organization or even the particular situation that you find yourself in, such as a crisis.

In this Skillbook, we’ll examine five general styles of leadership, and discuss the benefits and disadvantages of each. You’ll also learn how to:

  • Assess the strengths and weaknesses of your natural leadership approach.
  • Identify different leadership styles.
  • Decide which style is most appropriate for your workplace.
  • Identify any changes that you may need to make to lead more successfully.
