Have you heard about enough leadership styles by now? No, you need to hear five more. In an article for Chron, Rose Johnson discusses these styles that might reflect in you how operate.
In brief: Laissez-faire leaders go with the flow, not offering feedback or guidance on a regular basis, and thus may not be especially effective either. Autocratic leaders reserve total power and make decisions without input from others, which is not going to be a good thing most of the time.

Transactional leaders set goals with employees, and subsequent incentives and punishments revolve around them. Finally, transformational leaders generate strong communication across management to foster higher productivity.
