Difference between Style and Leadership
Dennis, U.S.
If any can answer my question, which is, what is the difference between "style" and "leadership?" For example, a charismatic leader or charismatic style.

Leadership and Style
Style is simply the manner in which one does something. Moreover, leadership is a philosophy.
A charismatic leader refers to a person, and charismatic style is the manner in how the person behaves.

Style versus Leadership
Michael Del-Colle, Manager, United States
My first thought is that it might be a matter of position. I think individuals could have a certain STYLE whether they hold a position of authority or not.
LEADERSHIP suggests the style is displayed in a position of authority.
This response, however, fails to deal with the reality that many people who do not hold a 'position' of authority are nonetheless leaders by virtue of their style. When you look at the attributes listed for servant leadership you realize they can be displayed by anyone regardless of role in the organization.
