Management Skills & Management Styles

  1. 1. MANAGEMENT STYLES
  2. 2. Management styles are the characteristic ways of making decisions relating to subordinates. These are the strategies, efforts, or direction used by the manager to create an efficient workplace to achieve organizational goals. DEFINITION
  3. 3. Managers have to perform many roles in an organization and how they handle various situations will depend on their style of management. Various styles which have been broadly identified are : 1. Autocratic 2. Consultative 3. Persuasive 4. Democratic 5. Laissez Faire. MANAGEMENT STYLES - TYPES
  4. 4. An autocratic style of management is when a manager makes a decision unilaterally . The manager conveys the decision to staff and they have to work within the scope of that decision. AUTOCRATIC
  5. 5. In consultative style, the manager engages the subordinates efficaciously in the decision making and problem solving process. Consultative style endorses the concept of empowerment . Communication is generally downward, but feedback to the management is encouraged to maintain morale. CONSULTATIVE
  6. 6. Persuasive style of management is somewhat similar to the autocratic style of management. The major difference is that the despite holding the entire power of decision making, the persuasive manager spends more time working with his subordinates in order to try to convince them of the benefits of the decision that have been made. PERSUASIVE
  7. 7. Democratic style is a multilateral approach where the manager allows the employees to take part in decision-making and therefore everything is agreed upon by the majority. This type of management style is mostly found in businesses where efficiency is a joint operation. DEMOCRATIC
  8. 8. Laissez Faire by definition means refusal to interfere. In Laissez Faire style, the role of the manager is more like a mentor and stimulator and the employees manage their respective areas of business. This type of management works only if the people involved are self motivated and task oriented. LAISSEZ- FAIRE
