Goleman suggests that there are six styles of leadership (coercive; authoritative; affiliative; democratic; pacesetting; coaching) that are chosen by different leaders and may be used in various circumstances. Select the one approach that you feel you will utilize most often as a leader in your chosen career. Describe two specific situations in which you think you would use this approach most effectively and explain why. Describe one situation in which you would choose to use another style and why the circumstances would call for the use of this approach.
