Leadership theories have failed to help managers keep track of the dynamism and intrinsic needs of complex "problematiques." Current theories do not integrate concepts in a systemic way and leave unprotected the efforts to be productive and effective within organizations. A review of different approaches to leadership is clustered into 8 categories, which form the foundation for a model that takes symbiotic relationship schemes and transforms them into six different leader-followers' profiles. Defining a model for leadership styles based on symbiotic relationships will promote behavioral changes in organizations. The model promotes integrity and distinctive features within a clear boundary around each symbiotic relationship, provides key elements for easy identification of each "symbioleadership" style, and presents some helpful tips to allow complex problematique to be addressed in organizations.
