Another goal is increasing morale.
Team has some experience, knowledge and skills Example: Prom committees have a democratic leader that allows the group to give their input on the theme and venue of their school's prom. They take vote after all the ideas are said, allowing every group member to have an equal chance of helping the leader make the final decision.

All group members are involved in planning and carrying out activities
Goal-orientated Group lacks motivation, knowledge, skills, and experience needed for task
Leader lacks communication and interpersonal skills
Group is unmotivated and high degree in conflict is already present Example: Group presentations where one hard working person is assigned to be with group members who put half the effort into projects. The working person is quiet and doesn't like to tell people to focus. The group members tell the leader their ideas, but the leader has a better idea that will give their group a higher mark. When Ineffective Laissez-Faire A Laissez-Faire leader rarely instructs the members of the group,
making this type of leadership have the most freedom for group members. When Effective Participants are self-motivated, educated and skilled; had similar experiences before.

Leader is a source of information rather than an active director, accepts the power, knowledge and decisions of the group.
Laid back, independent, resourceful, helpful, inspiring, etc. Example: Art classes allow people to expand their creativity and show it on paper or in a sculpture. The teacher simply tells them the topic of what they're supposed to create, and it is up to them to draw, paint, etc. what they think of when they hear the topic. The teacher accepts all ideas. Example: Parents who have this type of leadership allows their child to have no discipline in school and may become out of control. Parents have to teach their kids when they're young in order to carry on those morals with them when they grow older. Manager vs. Leader What's the difference? Leadership and Management must go hand in hand. A manager has "subordinates" who are ranked under the manager and follow the manager's orders. These subordinates follow these orders to get a reward and not a punishment (termination of the job). A leader has follows who chooses to listen to the leader because they belief in the same cause. There's no reward given, but followers agree with the leader's opinions. There is no punishment for disagreeing with the leader. Instead they stop following the leader. Other differences between a leader and a manager: Manager is a copy; Leader is an original
Managers maintains; Leaders develops
Manager relies on control; Leader inspires trust
Manager has a short-range view; Leader has a long-range perspective
Managers asks how and when; Leaders asks what and why.
Managers administers; Leaders innovates
Managers initiates; Leaders originates
Managers accept the status quo; Leaders challenge it
Managers have their eyes on the bottom line; Leaders have their eyes on the horizon
Managers are the classic good soldier; Leaders are their own person
Manager does things right; Leader does the right thing Can you think of any differences between a manager and a leader? What makes
