Great leaders can be many things, but they can only be measured by one criterion - the performance that they influence through others.
In today's volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous workplace, it is not enough to be a manager. You must truly learn how to be a leader - someone who influences and transforms how others feel about themselves and the work they do.
Your leadership behaviour has the greatest impact on the people you lead and your team. This will impact the productivity and the motivation of everyone. It affects the effort that people are prepared to contribute. The more they contribute, the more successful the team will be.
Become a leader in your workplace by harnessing the power of the six leadership styles:
Directive - securing immediate compliance
Pace-setting - accomplishing tasks to high standards of quality
Affiliative - creating harmony
Democratic - getting everyone's commitment and generating ideas
Visionary - providing long term vision and direction
Coaching - long term professional development
There is no right or wrong leadership style - the most effective style will vary depending upon the demands of the situation.
Effective leaders use these styles in the right measure and at the right time to create a positive, energising work climate for their teams.

Gain a robust understanding of how to adapt your style to be an effective leader
Learn daily practices that will enable you to shift your style to do the right things, at the right time, in the right circumstances and with the right people
Understand how each style of leadership plays a crucial role in influencing others and leading a company to success
