There are several different forms of leadership style: autocratic, bureaucratic, democratic, and laissez-faire
AUTOCRATIC Autocratic leadership style can be is likely to make decisions without input from staff, to give orders without explanation or defense, and to expect the orders to be obeyed employees become dependent on supervisors for instructions.
Autocratic leadership is a classical leadership style marked by leaders having complete authority with leaders issuing commands without explaining the rationale, and followers obeying instructions of the leader without questioning.Autocratic leadership

BUREAUCRATIC a supervisor manages ‘‘by the book.’’ The leader relies on the property’s rules, regulations, and procedures for decisions that he makes. To the employees, their leader appears to be a ‘‘police officer.’’ This style is appropriate when the employees can be permitted no discretion in the decisions to be made.
DEMOCRATIC also called participative leadership style is almost the reverse of the autocratic style. A democratic supervisor wants to share decision-making responsibility. The employer strongly considers the opinions of employees and seeks their thoughts and suggestions. All employees are informed about all matters that concern them.
LAISSEZ-FAIRE Laissez-faire (also called free-reign) leadership style refers to a hands-off approach in which the supervisor actually does as little leading as possible. In effect, the laissez-faire supervisor delegates all authority and power to the employees. The supervisor relies on the employees to establish goals, make decisions, and solve problems
