I like the specific examples used to demonstrate each outlined leadership style. Speaking of the 80's, I guess my leadership style has aged. I always found my stride leading by example. But I do admit when others don't want to follow along, it does become cumbersome to move them back into the fold.

I think this may be useful for very young/ junior managers to understand some basics about leader behaviours but it is is very leader centric (USA 1980s) in content. The modern leader needs to be congruent with his/her cultural reality. This means flexing to the needs of your local environment by adjusting behaviour in line with cultural dimensions not superficial headlines. eg being innovative is not a style, its an output, potentially of many styles of leadership
When an organisation's culture, practice and leadership behaviours are congruent you have effective leadership.
