Transcript of Leadership Style

Leadership Styles
1. Autocratic or authoritarian leadership style
2. Democratic/Participative Leadership
In an autocratic leadership style, the person in charge has total authority and control over decision making. By virtue of their position and job responsibilities, they not only control the efforts of the team, but monitor them for completion –often under close scrutiny
The autocratic leadership style is best used in situations where control is necessary, often where there is little margin for error. When conditions are dangerous, rigid rules can keep people out of harm’s way. Many times, the subordinate staff is inexperienced or unfamiliar with the type of work and heavy oversight is necessary.
Good fits for Autocratic Leadership:

Martin Luther King Jr is an example of Participative Leadership
consists of the leader sharing the decision-making abilities with group members by promoting the interests of the group members and by practicing social equality
This is an effective style to use when:
Followers are highly skilled, experienced, and educated
Outside experts, such as staff specialists or consultants are being used
Followers are trustworthy and experienced
Followers have pride in their work and the drive to do it successfully on their own
This style should NOT be
used when:
Followers feel insecure at the unavailability of a leader
The leader cannot or will not provide regular feedback to their followers
Transactional leaders focus their leadership on motivating followers through a system of rewards and punishments.

Transactional leadership, also known as managerial leadership, focuses on the role of supervision, organization and group performance.
Basic Assumptions of Transactional Leadership
How Transactional Leadership Works
People perform their best when the chain of command is definite and clear.•Workers are motivated by rewards and punishments.
Obeying the instructions and commands of the leader is the primary goal of the followers.
Subordinates need to be carefully monitored to ensure that expectations are met.

Thank you!
The leader views the relationship between managers and subordinates as an exchange - you give me something for something in return. When subordinates perform well, they receive some type of reward. When they perform poorly, they will be punished in some way.
