Many people don’t really know what their leadership style is. This is something you want to define and develop. There are 6 different leadership styles:

  1. Visionary: “Come with me” approach, stating the overall goal, but giving people the freedom to choose their own means of achieving it
  2. Coaching: Focused on personal development rather than immediate work-related tasks
  3. Affiliative: “People come first” attitude
  4. Democratic: Giving employees a voice in decisions
  5. Pacesetting: Setting high performance standards and exemplifying them
  6. Commanding: “Do what I say” approach
