Leadership takes many forms, but there are three types of leadership that are the most common. Good leaders do not take one form and stick to it – they look for the right conditions for each style. However, good leaders know what their prevailing style is and take advantage of this style. Let's look at three leadership forms and possibly a hosting service. Think about what style is yours – and how you can change it in various situations.
Autocratic leadership is also referred to as authority leader. In this style, the leader usually describes what he or she wants and how this will be achieved. In many ways, autocratic leadership is not a leader at all but a form of disciplinarian management. Are there situations where this style is active? First of all, look at the company. If the organization is well motivated and mature, an independent situation may affect. Suppose you have the most information you need but the time to reach a certain goal is very short. In a well-motivated organization, you can probably give an independent order and do not worry about how it will be taken – as long as this does not happen to your prevailing style. If you're a consistent administrator, you probably do not get a good response from your business. One of the things that goes under the leadership is the possibility of falling in an abusive or abnormal pattern – therefore you should only use an independent situation in rare cases and certainly not formally. If you are familiar with the prevailing autocratic style, consider moving into more participatory forms of leaders.
Participation or democratic leadership is a style where a leader still describes goals, but does some input from the company as far as the way the goal is achieved. But a democratic leader further makes it necessary to get the decisions of each team in the team. In situations where information is distributed between leaders and team members, democratic styles can be won. This style can also be an appropriate way for the self-government leader to change that style – without giving the management total control. This leadership is very promising for teams who have not found their authority before. It's also a great way to test the knowledge and ability of teams before replacing in a much smaller form of governance. Because this leadership element is basically one step out of self-determination, it can be easy for a leader to fall back into authority. If the team fails or falls, democratic leadership allows them to restructure plans and actions – without telling them exactly what to do.
The third and most rewarding form of leadership is the laissez-faire or delegative style. The delegation leader sets a general priority, goal or teaching, but it is up to making things happen. By using this style, the leader takes responsibility for all decisions made – but understands his decision to the team. This also means that team members have analyzed, evaluated and changed problems and problems as they perceive. These styles of leadership are definitely suitable or mature teams – those who have time to prove themselves to leaders and have confidence to deal with all issues. One of the biggest crashes of this type of leadership involves failure. If something goes wrong, this is not the place for a leader to blame the team – and this is more than likely a normal reaction for the laissez-faire leader.
Now that we have seen three main leadership styles, who are you? Remember that a good leader's signature is the ability to use a variety of styles according to the situation – bad steps in the same style at all times. So what are some situations where each style is correct? If you have a new team, you may want to use autocratic style to evaluate the group and its members. But what if you are placed in a position where most of the teams know their tasks well and would not respond well to an independent situation? Use a participant style in this situation – allow the teams to have input into the decision-making process. Remember that you can support yourself as a leader and team that uses this style. Finally, what if your team members know more about the situation than you do? Take the participants and let the teams make their own decisions, always reminding them that you will be responsible for the results.
When you decide which leaders you want to take, there are a few things to consider. First of all, how much time do you have? If you are very limited in time, your participant or auto can be the best style. Of course, this also depends on the team and its taste – if you have experience and a limited amount of time, you do not have to use an independent condition. Simply explain and emphasize that time is limited. You should also take into account who has information related to the project or project – if information is shared between you, the leader and the team, you may want to participate. If your team has all the information, take the agent level – let them use the information to find the best solution. Also, take a look at the type of project you are viewing – how complicated is it? Compare this with the team's skills and you should be able to choose the appropriate leadership style.
If your prevailing style is automatic, you might want to see what's up to you from moving in. If you are one of the two types, you probably get a good response from your team. Just remember to change your leadership section according to circumstances – and do not handle one style independently. When you start moving across different styles, you will find that your teams will respond.
