Transcript of Leadership
three leadership styles depending on the situation and the forces involved. For example:
A manager informs his employees that a procedure is not working and a new one must be established (authoritarian). He asks for their ideas and input on creating a new procedure (participative) and delegates tasks to each employee in order to implement the new procedure (delegative). Forces can include -
The basis of the working relationship
(e.g. based on respect or disrespect?)
How much time is available
How competent the employees are
The complexity of the task
Laws or compulsory procedures Participative Leader has final decision Includes employees in decsion They “consult” Increases moral Leader does not know everything Employees valued authoritarian

What is Authoritarian Management? The best example of a current day establishment using the authoritarian management style is the military. Communication is handled via ‘the chain of command’ and all orders demand absolute acceptance. Authoritarian managers expect staff to do what they're told. They generally don't allow for dispute or negotiation and creativity is discouraged. For example, an authoritarian manager might ask you to perform a task. You know a better and faster way to do it. You speak up, with the hope that your manager will agree. Your manager tells you to get back to work, and walks away. Advantages?
