Collaborative Leadership   >  Brings out the best in people. Inspires transformation

Directive Leadership          >  Clear and firm. Helps overcome inertia

Tactical Leadership           >  Monitors key task details.Causes incremental improvement

 

Too much & Too little of Leadership styles:

Un-Purposeful Leaders are AIMLESS

Over-Purposeful Leaders are FANATICAL

Un-Inspirational Leaders are DULL

Over-Inspirational Leaders are MESMERIZING

Un-Considerate Leaders are HARSH

Over-Considerate Leaders are GULLIBLE

Un-Organized Leaders are CHAOTIC

Over-Organized Leaders are MECHANISTIC

 

If you consider the Leadership style map on an (X,Y) axis; and max value of X and Y is 3, then:

FANATICAL would be (-3,3)

MESMERIZING would be (3,3)

GULLIBLE would be (3,-3)

MECHANISTIC would be (-3,-3)
