Abstract: Introduction Leadership can have a different meaning to different individuals. The way a person defines a leader depends on many aspects, such as cultural background, beliefs and experiences. Leaders are not in short supply but leaders that truly make a positive difference are not easy to come by. Leadership styles There are many leadership styles that are mentioned in the literature. In this review, four models are discussed which the author thinks best apply to the healthcare sector. The leadership styles that will be described are the Situational Leadership Model, the Exemplary Leadership Model, the Authentic Leadership Model and Goleman’s Leadership Styles. Examples of how these styles can best be adapted to the healthcare system will be discussed. Conclusion A leader can only be successful if there is a proper communication system in place. Leaders of a healthcare system have to capitalize on the fact that the healthcare system is a learning organisation. This will ease the implementation of the strategies since the employees will be more willing to learn new things related to these strategies.
