A leadership style is the manner and approach of providing direction for a team, implementing plans and motivating people. They all have advantages and disadvantages.
Due to the ever changing public expectations of the public services the styles of leadership they use also needs to change and evolve.

Two minutes to discuss and compare with a partner.
Very direct leadership style where the leader tells the team members what they must do.
Considered a classic leadership style.
Used when a leader wants to retain power and maintain control over the decision making.
Leader tells the team what to do without any negotiations.
Team members are expected to obey orders.

It's a hands-off approach to leadership, where the group are trusted to complete the task by the leader
It can also be known as the "hands - off", "free-reign" or "delegative" approach.
The leader has very little control over the group and leaves them to establish their own rules
Followers have a lot of power but very little direction.
They must use this to establish their own goals, make decisions and resolve any issues that arise.
It is difficult to master as leaders have great difficulty delegating power.
Difficult with some groups as they may fall behind with goals.

Leadership style that focuses on rules and procedures to manage teams and projects.
Authority is diffused among a number of departments or individuals and there is strict adherence to a set of operational rules.
Often used in organisations that don't encourage innovation and by leaders who maybe insecure.

People - orientated
Focuses on participation of all team members, clear communication and supporting and developing the individual in order to improve skills.
The leader is competent in their role and inspire others to unlock their potential.
They allocate roles based on a person's strength and skills.
It encourages good teamwork, loyalty and creative collaboration and helps to avoid low morale, poor communication and distrust.
Good relationships are key to its success.
It is about getting the job done. The completion of the task rather than the needs of the team is the key goal.
Leaders will define the work and the roles required, put plans in place, organise and monitor with little regard for their teams needs.

Winston Churchill 1874-1965
Read the case study on page 46 and answer the questions.
Appropriate style for the situation
The public services receive their strategic plans either directly from a government ministry or come up with their own plans under the prevailing political will of the time.
This means that even senior officers often have no input into the goal setting of the organisation but are given authoritarian dictates that they have to impose on their employees.
They must however be ready to respond to the challenges and changes that may arise and must be able to use a whole range of leadership styles.
They must be highly adaptable and
comfortable using all styles
Team leader role
Team leaders can be appointed in different ways:
Some people make better leaders than others, however, as long as someone is interested and willing, with an idea of communication, understand the needs of others and offer support then they have the basics to develop their leaderships skills.
A team leader should:
encourage and maintain open communication
help the team develop
be an active listener
look to delegate their authority
coordinate multi-agency responses such as emergency service or military teams working to reach the same goal
match the leadership qualities with their definitions.
