Scholars and researchers have identified multiple leadership styles and examined their efficacy in different contexts.

Unfortunately, many individuals outside this field oversimplify leadership or view it solely as a practical skill honed through experience, disregarding its potential for systematic study. Nonetheless, the importance of leaderology cannot be overstated. The science of leadership has a profound impact on employee satisfaction, motivation, and productivity, as well as organizational performance and success. Furthermore, it enables us to derive valuable lessons from past triumphs and failures. Best of all, leadership is not limited to formal positions or titles. Developing leadership skills can benefit individuals at all levels and in all walks of life. As research progresses and our understanding of leadership deepens, the appreciation for its scientific foundations will surely grow.
