Business leadership plays an increasingly significant role in contributing to the success of a corporate. Nevertheless, leadership performance is problematic in the contemporary business management world. This study, in line with extant leadership style models, sets out to investigate what types of leadership styles are vital for business organizations nowadays. By conducting three successful leadership style case studies on Ma Yun, Dong Mingzhu, and Zhang Yiming, it was found that different industries call for distinct leadership styles and traits. More specifically, in both traditional and online retailing sectors, decisive and authoritarian leadership styles are important. While for those technology-driven companies, the democratic style, insightful perception, and technical skills of the leaders are more essential. The results of the study contribute to the leadership and leadership style research. In the end, based on the research findings, suggestions for ensuing leadership education are also proposed.
