  Leadership Style Should Conform to Individual's (leader's) Personality
SATISH PANDE, Business Consultant, India, Member
  I believe a manager cannot switch on and off different leadership styles in different situations because he has a unique personality. If he tries contrasting styles, people will not take him seriously and he will be only an actor doing a role.
A leader has to lead his team, empowering and guiding them and not interfering. He needs to use a combination of styles which conforms to his personality.
Mintzberg's example of a conductor of an orchestra ("Covert Leadership") is the best example. Such a leader controls, coordinates, balances and also empowers his teammates, highlighting the performance of good, hiding the not so good and silencing those who are not up to the mark."
A person performing the role of a leader must absorb the meaning of all styles, he would automatically, reflexively react in the appropriate manner if his intentions are fair and true.
