What is meant by leadership style? To some degree your own personal style, or way of doing things reflects who you are as a person. However most people are also capable of adapting their behaviour to the context and situation they are in. This may sound complex initially, but in reality we often actually adapt our approach to different situations quite naturally. It’s when you can’t, or won’t be flexible that problems often occur. This guide discusses some key ideas about leadership so that you can:

  • Specify the results you need.
  • Play to the strengths within the team you lead.
  • Focus your leadership style to support people and get results.
  • Align the efforts of your team to focus on achieving its goals.
  • Make the most of external factors.


  • Effective leadership for results.
  • What makes a good leader?
  • How does your style help you get results?

    I am impressed with the tools and activities that assist the managers to assess their situation and ask questions about future direction and improvements – these are probably the most valuable part of the training products – adding acronyms and diagrams helps retention of concepts and concept awareness when moving results into the workplace.

    I will be using them for ‘Just In Time’ training in coaching and mentoring sessions where the concepts will mirror my suggestions to them and we can use some of the step-by-step tools to increase awareness and open minds.

    Overall, the products create a solid basis for staff development without being too ‘over the top in theory’ or including too many examples (which many international audiences cannot relate to personally!) A good blend of practicality and theory to help the audience focus on their own results.

    These are fantastic little e-books, very thorough, easy to follow. We’ve used them as support tools for learners on our talent management programmes which has saved me a lot of time and a lot of money. I’d definitely recommend them.
