Abstract: Leadership is undeniably a major factor in today’s highly competitive business environment where the organizations thrive to create and sustain competitive edge over their rivals. In order to do that, motivating and leading the human capital within the organizations stand out as important remedies that can cure other shortcomings of an organization and help to build employee involvement that cannot easily be imitated by the competitors. In that regard, contemporary leadership has a significant role whereby it may energize the dormant potential in the organization, offer creative solutions, deal with the problems of turbulent times, and deliver these in such a way that is unique and very difficult to replicate. Thus, modern day management relies more on the human factor of organizations which can only be managed through effective leadership. In today’s global business environment, almost all resources, except for the human resources, can be imitated to a certain extent. In other words, leadership style that nurtures and cultivates the human capital of an organization in the right way may be a source of sustainable competitiveness that will be too difficult for the competitors to replicate. This study aims to provide an overview of the major leadership styles that organizations may find useful for their specific needs. By providing such an overview, it is hoped that researchers and practitioners alike benefit from these perspectives and have a chance to shed light on their current problems and future objectives
