The four different types of management styles as i mentioned in a previous discussion depends on the supply and demand for the needs of this specific organization.
I like the way it's laid out in a very logical manner and the use of key words too, to make it easier to remember each one.
so now i know why managers act as they do.
Manager having responsibilities of employees he should also consider employees decisions to minimize the risk associated with the task that must be completed satisfactory.
Some managers don't actively perform managerial duties as expected, what will happen between the manager and employees in regards to performing assignment?
CHARACTERISTICS OF A GOOD LEADER 1. Authenticity "After years of studying leaders and their traits, I believe that leadership begins and ends with authenticity." 2. Desire to Serve Others "Authentic leaders genuinely desire to serve others through their leadership." 3. Empowering People "They are more interested in empowering the people they lead to make a difference than they are in power, money, or prestige for themselves." 4. Guided by Heart, passion and compassion "They are as guided by qualities of the heart, by passion, and compassion, as they are by qualities of the mind." 5. Recognize their shortcomings "Authentic leaders use their natural abilities, but they also recognize their shortcomings and work hard to overcome them." 6. Lead with Purpose "They lead with purpose, meaning and values." 7. Build Enduring Relationships "They build enduring relationships with people." 8. Clear Where They Stand "Others follow them because they know where they stand." 9. Refuse to Compromise "When principles are tested, they refuse to compromise." 10. Develop Themselves "Authentic leaders are dedicated to developing themselves because they know that becoming a leader takes a lifetime of personal growth." LEADERSHIP STYLES There are four Main Leadership Styles Autocratic Bureaucratic Laissez-faire Democratic Autocratic Leadership Style This is often considered the classical approach. It is one in which the manager retains as much power and decision-making authority as possible. The manager does not consult employees, nor are they allowed to give any input. Employees are expected to obey orders without receiving any explanations. The motivation environment is produced by creating a structured set of rewards and punishments. This leadership style has been greatly criticized during the past 30 years. Some studies say that organizations with many autocratic leaders have higher turnover and absenteeism than other organizations. The studies say that autocratic leaders: Rely on threats and punishment to influence employees Do not trust employees Do not allow for employee input Yet, autocratic leadership is not all bad. Sometimes it is the most effective style to use. These situations can include: New, untrained employees who do not know which tasks to perform or which procedures to follow Effective supervision can be provided only through detailed orders and instructions Employees do not respond to any other leadership style
Business Management - Four management styles
Four management styles
Elements often used to distinguish between management styles include
centralisation, orientation, motivation, decision-making, attitude and
There are four broad management styles that can be identified when
applying these characteristics to how certain managers go about their job.
These styles include:
* autocratic, authoritarian, dictatorial, directive, persuasive
* democratic, laissez-faire, free-rein
A manager will adopt a specific style and use that style to carry out the
tasks and functions associated with their specific job. In some cases, the
manager may adopt what is referred to as the 'contingency or situational'
approach to their management style. This means that the manager will assess
the current situation and then, dependent upon what that situation is, they
will adopt a management style that is appropriate to that situation.
In most cases, however, the manager will display the characteristics of
one of the management styles identified above. Which management style a
manager adopts will be determined by one or a combination of the following
* Personality. The personality of the individual manager along with
the type and level of education they were exposed to, what the manager has
learned from previous managerial role models, and the extent of both the
manager's personal and professional development
* Employees. The number of employees for whom that manager has
responsibility and the skill level and motivational level of these
employees, together with the capacity of these employees to make decisions
about their work practices and procedures
* Tasks. The type of tasks that have to be performed by the manager
and the employees, the level of risk associated with the tasks, and the
timeline within which the tasks must be completed satisfactorily
* Constraints. The environmental factors which might impact on the way
that the manager might operate, both the internal and external factors
along with the normal daily constraints of time, cost and resources
associated with the specific tasks and procedures to be carried out by the
* Culture. The culture of the organisation will determine to a large
extent the management style that will be exhibited by an individual
manager. Organisations tend, in the main, to employ 'like' people and,
therefore, managers will tend to exhibit similar management style except
where the organisation is based on a diversity of its personnel and
managers. The management style adopted will need to enable the organisation
to achieve its long-term objectives as set out in the vision or mission
We can now look at each management style in turn and discuss the
characteristics exhibited by each and then assess the relative strengths
and weaknesses of each management style. The management styles may be
thought of as being on a continuous line with the Autocratic on the extreme
right and the Democratic on the extreme left.
Democratic - Participative - Consultative - Autocratic
