Follow the Leader [Infographic]

Jan. 26, 2016
Different leaders have different leadership styles. Knowing which leadership style works for your team is the difference between success and failure on a project.

Leading a team of employees can take a considerable amount of planning and investment.

It also requires an understanding of what leadership style works best for a team of employees or even the organization as a whole. This infographic, published by Top Management Degrees, discusses how employees perceive management and the different management styles. Styles of management include:

  • Autocratic – Leaders make decisions with little input from others.
  • Laissez-faire – Leaders offer little supervision or input.
  • Participative – Leaders run a semi-democracy, where input is taken into consideration.
  • Transactional – Leaders and employees set goals and leaders provide rewards or punishments based on the goals.
  • Transformational – Leaders and teams focus one goal, the “big picture.”
