Studying Leadership Styles can be pretty interesting. I had this topic during my first year of graduation. I remember a few examples.

1) Charismatic Leader

A leader who is able to captivate his audience and create an ardent following for himself, through his charisma. This charisma is exercised in his attitude, his speech, reflected well in his addressings to his followers. His followers are usually so loyal and dedicated that they follow him wherever he leads them. His charisma, of course, is the most enchanting part. Eg. Bill Clinton.

2) Transformational Leader

The leader who is able to change the existing attitude, thoughts and beliefs of the populace. The people could have developed such attitudes that hamper their growth and development and the leader steps right in, to change their way of living, or working, giving them a new reason, hope and stance. This leader does not expect his followers to blindly follow him. In fact, he empowers them to think different act different, think new and act new. Eg. Martin Luther King, Mahatma Gandhi

Though I know the rest vaguely, I do not quite know them completely. Hence, I prefer not to elaborate on them. But I am sure that you would find better explainations and examples on the net. These leadership styles are very popular.

Hi Sridhar,

Some of these links could provide useful info.


The following link gives good insight into leadership styles. It says that:

There are a number of different approaches, or 'styles' to leadership and management that are based on different assumptions and theories. The style that individuals use will be based on a combination of their beliefs, values and preferences, as well as the organizational culture and norms which will encourage some styles and discourage others.

Charismatic Leadership

Participative Leadership

Situational Leadership

Transactional Leadership

Transformational Leadership

Transformational Leadership

The Quiet Leader

A beautifuk article on the concepts of Situational Leadership is available on http://www.chimaeraconsulting.com/sitleader.htm

Hope these would be useful to you.



One more article available on the net is attached.
This article talks of :
Leadership experts agree that a key challenge facing leaders now and in the future is responsiveness to radical change. This article continues prior work on radical change with theory and research on leadership style. The result is a model of radical change describing the leadership styles best suited to the successful implementation of each stage in the change process. Using the Leadership Style Inventory, leaders can determine which stages of radical change they are equipped to handle. The article explores how individual and group leadership style limitations can be dealt with to ensure radical change success.
