Design/methodology/approach– Statistical population includes the undergraduate, postgraduate and PhD students of the University of Isfahan. For data analysis, 727 accurate completed questionnaires have been used. Initially, questions were developed for each SLT style, followed by analysis in which the type of styles were determined and classified using the Kano evaluation table. Findings– Based on the Kano's classifications, findings imply that, the appropriate leadership styles for undergraduate, postgraduate and PhD students are directing, coaching and supporting styles, respectively. Originality/value– The approach and findings of this research contribute to the literature of SLT and the Kano model. Findings can be used as a guideline for lecturers in leading and motivating students. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png International Journal of Public Leadership Emerald Publishing
