  3. 3. What is Leadership? lead·er·ship Noun The action of leading a group of people or an organization or The state or position of being a leader. Synonyms guidance - lead - direction - management - command
  4. 4. What are the qualities/traits of a leader?
  5. 5. Well-known leadership styles? • • • • Autocratic Leadership Bureaucratic Leadership Democratic/Participative Leadership Laissez-Faire Leadership
  6. 6. Autocratic Leadership • • • • • Autocratic leadership is an extreme form of transactional leadership, where leaders have a lot of power over their people. The benefit of autocratic leadership is that it's incredibly efficient. Decisions are made quickly, and work gets done efficiently. The downside is that most people resent being treated this way. Therefore, autocratic leadership can often lead to high levels of absenteeism and high staff turnover. Autocratic leadership is often best used in crises, when decisions must be made quickly and without dissent. For example, the military often uses an autocratic leadership style; top commanders are responsible for quickly making complex decisions, which allows troops to focus their attention and energy on performing their allotted
  7. 7. Bureaucratic Leadership • • • • • Bureaucratic leaders work "by the book." They follow rules rigorously, and ensure that their people follow procedures precisely. This is an appropriate leadership style for work involving serious safety risks (such as working with machinery, with toxic substances, or at dangerous heights) or where large sums of money are involved. Bureaucratic leadership is also useful in organizations where employees do routine tasks (as in manufacturing). The downside of this leadership style is that it's ineffective in teams and organizations that rely on flexibility, creativity, or innovation. Much of the time, bureaucratic leaders achieve their position because of their ability to conform to and uphold rules, not because of their qualifications or expertise. This can cause resentment when team members don't value their expertise or advice.
  8. 8. Democratic/Participative Leadership • • • • • Democratic leaders make the final decisions, but they include team members in the decision-making process. Team members tend to have high job satisfaction and are productive because they're more involved in decisions. The approach can slow decision-making, but most suitable when working as a team is essential, and when quality is more important than efficiency or productivity. The downside of democratic leadership is that it can often hinder situations where speed or efficiency is essential. For instance, during a crisis, a team can waste valuable time gathering people's input. Another downside is that some team members might not have the knowledge or expertise to provide high quality input.
  9. 9. Laissez-Faire Leadership • • • • means "leave it be" in French Laissez-faire leaders give their teams complete freedom to do their work and set their own deadlines. They provide team support with resources and advice, if needed, but otherwise don't get involved. This leadership style can be effective if the leader monitors performance and gives feedback to team members regularly. It is most likely to be effective when individual team members are experienced, skilled, self-starters. The main benefit of laissez-faire leadership is that giving team members so much autonomy can lead to high job satisfaction and increased productivity. The downside is that it can be damaging if team members don't manage their time well or if they don't have the knowledge, skills, or motivation to do their work effectively.
