There are a few different leadership styles that can be effective for college instructors. Some leaders are task-oriented and focus on executing tasks, while others are relationship-oriented and work to develop relationships with their subordinates. Every type of leader is effective when used appropriately in the right situation. Each style has different strengths and weaknesses that make it appropriate to use in different situations. It's important to evaluate your situation and determine which style of leadership will be most effective. If you're a college instructor, it's important to choose the right leadership style for your class. According to Howard Gardner's theory of multiple intelligences, there are different types of learners who respond to different styles of leadership. Every instructor must develop his or her style of teaching. Every person has their own style in how they teach and while one instructor may work well with one particular student. It’s important for instructors to understand their own style and to know what works best for their students. An instructor who is loud, engaging, and makes learning fun will generally appeal to students who want to be engaged and excited in class. However, this type of instructor may not be a good fit for students who are shy and introverted. An instructor who is patient and supportive may be more appealing to students who need more guidance. The type of teacher and style that works for a student will vary based on individual needs and learning preferences.
