    Leadership Styles

    There are several styles of leading a group or business. One is “I am in charge, you do what I say.” The employee or the basic recruit in the military obeys out of fear of the consequences. The foundation of this type is reward or punishment. There is no grey area for not knowing, inept, or half-trying to obey the order.

    A derivative of this style is the chain of command. The CEO (chief executive officer) stays apart from the workers. The supervisor then passes down the orders. This style, if done well, allows for a degree of freedom. The manner in which the work gets done is somewhat up the workers. With that freedom also comes the chance of not accomplishing the job or completing it satisfactorily.

    Another leadership method calls for close relations up and down the organizational chain. The cohesiveness welds the business into a winning team. The goal is to create a championship team where interdependence is crucial. Nonchalant or negative workers significantly reduce the amount accomplished. In producing great results, the coach or foremen creates a climate of comfort. Instead picking on errors, bad attitudes, or poor workmanship, they seek ways to compliment quality work being done, improve their production and increase their self-confidence.

    Each of these leadership styles work. The style depends upon the type of personality the leader possesses. Choose wisely for your success.
