All leaders have different styles. The style depends on the manager’s personality and on the situation. Autocratic Leadership The autocratic leader takes control of the situation. He or she doesn’t allow employees to participate in decision making. Laissez-faire Leadership The laissez-faire leadership leaves employees alone to do their job. This appropriate when employees are mature and have years of experience, but the employees need direction, guidance, and motivation.. Democratic Leadership The democratic leader provides opportunities for employees to contribute to the decision-making process. Employees provide input, information, and creativity tot the department’s goals. This leadership style encourages staff, recognizes achievement, and increases team spirit and morale.
