My definition of leadership is being courageous enough to represent something that one believes in or is passionate and enthusiastic about. It is setting an example and taking on the role of bringing together a group of people however big or small for a common cause. Leadership is also having the ability to guide others and portray the image that you are willing to support and take control in the hopes of succeeding. Positive versus negative leadership has a big impact on the success achieved in an area of work that requires leadership. There are 6 styles of leadership. Those are the coercive style, authoritative, affiliative, democratic, pace-setting and the coaching style.Of all of those coercive is the least effective.
