Leadership Style Isn’t What It Used to Be. Leadership is not a universal style that can fit all organizational cultures. An effective leader must adapt her approach to fit a particular situation; this is why a leader should have a thorough understanding of many leadership frameworks and styles. The more leadership strategies managers are familiar with, the more flexible with their decisions they can be. Leaders must adopt the current institutional vision or commit to a new vision for the organization’s culture. The leader is encouraged to align her decision-making approaches with the organizational culture.
