Emotional intelligence is one crucial factor in leadership. The “father” of emotional intelligence, Daniel Goleman, in 2002, formulated six leadership styles. His book Primal Leadership was based on understanding different aspects of emotional intelligence in leadership.
Each one of them exists and is very dependent upon the explicitness. Altogether interrelated yet so different in behaving emotions. All six of them have their purpose. It distinguishes them from the form of leadership. Specific leadership is required for particular solutions.
Not every company will be ordering one that means commanding. Some can follow the path of empathy; they need another leadership style. So Goleman distributed each one of them in different styles and explained them precisely. In his book, he made sure he describes each of them with accuracy so that people can make a choice easily as emotional intelligence is vital for any style.
Its purpose is to provide leaders with the indispensable abilities to choose which leadership can benefit their organization. Also, what they can do when they’re stuck with confusion and can’t find solutions to it. This explanation makes them aware of what they require. Also, they can switch in between the leadership if the current one isn’t working for them.
