Coercive leadership is a leadership style that was originally outlined in Daniel Goleman’s Theory of Emotional Intelligence. It describes a type of leader recognized by their competitive, demanding nature.
A coercive working environment is one in which threats are used to achieve goals. This can include strategies such as withdrawing access to bonuses if targets are not met.
This style of leader is well known for demanding unwavering excellent performance from their team members and employees.
A coercive leader will expect the very best out of their staff at all times and are less likely to be understanding of shortcomings. They expect their authority to be acknowledged and recognized, with employees doing as the leader asks without question.
