The leaders organise the labour into efficient units and monitor the distribution and use of capital assets – progress is excellent. The leaders continue to monitor and evaluate progress, making adjustments along the way to ensure the progress is maintained and efficiency increased wherever possible. Then, one day amidst all the hustle and bustle and activity, one person climbs up a nearby tree. The person surveys the scene from the top of the tree.

19 Authoritarian Leadership
Leader makes decisions without reference to anyone else High degree of dependency on the leader Can create de-motivation and alienation of staff May be valuable in some types of business where decisions need to be made quickly and decisively

20 Types of Leadership Style: Authoritarian
Someone like Sir Alex Ferguson has a classic autocratic style, he motivates his players with his fiery personality and he's been very successful that way.

21 Democratic Leadership
Encourages decision making from different perspectives – leadership may be emphasised throughout the organisation Consultative: process of consultation before decisions are taken Persuasive: Leader takes decision and seeks to persuade others that the decision is correct

22 Democratic Leadership (cont)
May help motivation and involvement Workers feel ownership of the firm and its ideas Improves the sharing of ideas and experiences within the business Can delay decision making

23 Types of Leadership Style: Democratic
Someone like Clive Woodward has a democratic, laid-back style. He finds out what his players want and gives them what they ask.

24 Laissez-Faire Leadership
‘Let it be’ – the leadership responsibilities are shared by all Can be very useful in businesses where creative ideas are important Can be highly motivational, as people have control over their working life Can make coordination and decision making time-consuming and lacking in overall direction Relies on good team work Relies on good interpersonal relations

25 Types of Leadership Style: Laissez-Faire
Conservative Prime Minister from 1978 to 1990, credited with the rise of a laissez-faire policy which came to be called "Thatcherism“.
