In this study,several methodological approaches were used,and there was overall good correlation between them. The one area of disagreement was in the extent to which the authoritative style was used. This was the most frequentstyle observed in the interviews,but was selected infrequently by questionnaire respondents. However,in the interviews, it became clear that the term “authoritative” was regularly misunderstood, being taken to mean “authoritarian” or“ autocratic”, rather than the more “transformational” meaning in Goleman’s use of the word. In the Singh and Jampel model, again a range of individual leadership styles was found across consens us manager, active manager and consultative auto crattypologies.The consensus manager style was the most frequent, supporting the results of the assessment of Goleman’s styles.
