Leadership Styles

Green-Jakobsen 23 minutes

Effective leadership varies not only depending on the task, job or function that needs to be accomplished, but also on the profile of the person or group that is being influenced. Good and effective leaders are those who are flexible and adaptive when it comes to their approaches.

This course explains the ‘Gauge and Adjust’ model in leadership and how it can be used as a guide in adjusting one’s leadership style. It also provides examples of situations and how directive or supportive behaviour is shown by a leader in such situations.
