Abstract

The study of leadership has become a prominent scholarly and professional focus in an ever-changing, multi-dimensional globalized world. Despite abundant scientific and anecdotal work on the effectiveness and potency of “good” leadership, several leadershiprelated questions have remained unanswered. For instance, what does good, effective leadership look like? What is a leadership ‘style’ at its most basic? What leadership styles are at a leader’s disposal? While leadership may be seen as one of the most overresearched topics, it remains one of the most misunderstood phenomena of our time (Gandolfi & Stone, 2016). This conceptual paper addresses the notion of a leadership style and purports to categorize the ever-increasing pool of leadership styles that emerge both in scholarly and professional circles. The paper culminates in a graphic depiction of the categorization of leadership styles based on the scientific work of Lewin, Lippit, and White (1939).
