In this paper I will review the article How outstanding leaders lead with affect: an examination of charismatic, ideological, and pragmatic leaders (Griffith, Connelly, Thiel, Johnson, 2015) and discuss key findings. First I will present a brief summary of the article, second I will discuss relevant discoveries of the various types of leaders. I will conclude by showing how these research findings are applicable to my professional work in an academic library. Article Summary This article focuses on a research study of outstanding leaders that are identified with one of three leadership approaches: charismatic, ideological, and pragmatic (CIP). The intent is to examine the emotional displays of each leadership type and how they differ particularly in the types of emotions and tactics employed by each. Throughout these various perspectives on leadership effectiveness, there is a common thread- a thread that is continued in the current effort- that the emotions that leaders display, whether tied to their personal traits or to their message, are linked directly and indirectly to their success as a leader. (Griffith, Connelly, Thiel & Johnson, 2015, p. 502). In an effort to more clearly frame the impact of emotions on leadership success, the study proposed a set of hypotheses specifying which leadership type will exhibit or display more positive or negative emotions over another, authenticity in leadership, and which types use hard or soft tactics in persuasion.
