What Is Leadership Style?: Classic And Modern Leadership Styles
Leadership style varies with personality and situational need. Leadership style is partly decision making style and partly a way of motivating employees. The classic thinking on leadership style refers to how decisions are made. Originally, 3 leadership styles were identified: autocratic, participative and laissez-faire. When the focus shifts from decision making to how to motivate subordinates, other styles arise. There are charismatic leaders, those who are visionary or transformational.
