1. Affiliative A Mainly sets priorities & delegates tasks – and little else Avoidance or absence of leadership Generally considered to be the least effective leadership style 2. Coaching B Works best during a crisis or when immediate action is needed Assuages fear and brings calm by giving clear directions & explicit feedback Minimizes ambiguity about expected actions; expects full compliance 3. Directive C Guides people toward a shared vision … where to go, but not how to get there Focuses on the future/where you are going vs. where you’ve been Usually entrepreneurs, business leaders … the movers and the shakers – that could be some of you! 4. Laissez-faire D Hones in on the emotional needs of the group Creates harmony through collaboration and inclusion People come first to this type of leader! 5. Pacesetting E Listens to and values input from the entire team Encourages and promotes consensus This style works best when you need buy-in or clarity for a situation 6. Participative F Demands and often embodies excellence Builds a challenge and sets exciting goals for the team Caution – don’t overuse this style as it may drive short-term results, but can cause exhaustion and burn out over the long-run! 7. Visionary G Seeks to mentor and align individual goals with that of the organization Excels at delegating assignments and tying others’ strengths with their interests and aspirations … resulting in enhanced performance Generates high level of loyalty
