Leadership is the ongoing process of defining a shared goal or purpose and inducing others to pursue it. There are many approaches to achieving this, and in this short talk we will review and compare a number of leadership styles, including Lean Leadership. We will also discuss how leaders gain, keep and lose credibility with their followers – Leadership Capital. Given your specific circumstances, this talk will help you understand some of the real-world trade-offs involved in customizing your leadership style.
