According to a recent study on bosses and leadership, there are five different leadership styles.
Some bosses have a gruff, “tough love” approach; others are nurturing mentors, hard-working single-minded leaders or “country clubbers” who get things done by networking and charming those around them. Whatever your natural style, you’ll achieve more if you’re able to borrow from other modes of leadership as the situation demands, says business expert Andrea Kay.
Many experts agree that one of the best books any boss can read is the famed Dale Carnegie’s “How To Win Friends And Influence People.” For more than sixty years the rock-solid, time-tested advice in this book has carried thousands of now famous people up the ladder of success in their business and personal lives.
