In looking at the different styles of leadership, timing and amount of the chosen style, all are important. For example, are you coaching your team on how to approach a new account? When are you doing the coaching? And, how much are you coaching them? The finesse a leader uses with different styles, with the right timing and to the appropriate degree, all contribute to the leader's effectiveness. Think about what it is that you're wanting to accomplish with your leadership in a given opportunity.
Clearly and consistently set the examples of what it is you're wanting done. What you do and how regularly you do it, will be observed by those you're leading. Remember that, when in a leadership role, you are setting the stage for the actions that are expected. In this role, eyes and ears are on you. If you are regularly late into work or are heard repeatedly talking to another in a condescending tone, then the perception may be that those are your expectations. Therefore, model the actions that you want, clearly and consistently.
