5 Leadership Styles to Influence a Team

Many field service leaders have to develop their own style of leadership ‘on-the-job’. In some ways this is great as it allows for a natural style to evolve based on your individual personality. However, developing a better understanding of successful leadership styles can allow us to shape our personal leadership style in a more holistic and rounded manner. In this course we will help you better understand leadership styles. 

Course Description:


Great leaders bring out the best in their teams. They inspire people to action, boost group cohesion, and cultivate an environment of consistent, high-quality performance.


But no two teams or situations are the same. So, how do these leaders do it? The secret lies in the strategy. Accomplished leaders are skilled at switching between styles—knowing when to intervene, when to motivate, and when to let go of the reins.


In this course, you’ll first learn what a leadership style is. Then, you’ll discover five common leadership styles. Finally, you’ll determine how to choose among and implement your chosen style—or styles. 


In this course we cover: 


  • An Overview of Leadership Styles
  • Laissez-Faire Leadership
  • Autocratic Leadership
  • Democratic Leadership
  • Transactional Leadership
  • Transactional Leadership
  • Transformational Leadership
