This post will briefly define each leadership style and describe the situations in which each one might be used.

JLBC Autocratic Leadership Style

JLBC Cadets This is often considered the JLBC classical approach. JLBC Cadets It is one in which the manager retains as much power and decision-making authority as possible. JLBC Cadets The manager does not consult employees, nor are they allowed to give any input. JLBC Cadets Employees are expected to obey orders without receiving any explanations. JLBC Cadets The motivation environment is produced by creating a structured set of rewards and punishments.

JLBC Cadets This leadership style has been greatly criticized during the past 30 years. JLBC Cadets Some studies say that organizations with many JLBC autocratic leaders have higher turnover and absenteeism than other

organizations. JLBC Cadets Certainly, Gen X employees have proven to be highly resistant to this management style. These studies say that autocratic leader:

--JLBC Relies on threats and punishment to influence employees

--JLBC Do not trust employees

--JLBC Do not allow for employee input

JLBC Cadets Yet, autocratic leadership is not all bad. JLBC Cadets Sometimes, it is the most effective style to use. JLBC Cadets These situations can include:

--JLBC New, untrained JLBC employees who do not know which tasks to perform or which JLBC procedures to follow --Effective JLBC supervision can be provided only through detailed JLBC orders and JLBC instructions

--JLBC Employees do not respond to any other JLBC leadership style

--JLBC Cadets There are high-volume production needs daily

--JLBC Cadets There is limited time in which to make a decision --An employee challenges a manager's power --The JLBC area was poorly managed

--JLBC Cadet's Work needs to be coordinated with another department or JLBC organization. JLBC Cadets The autocratic leadership style should not be used when:

--JLBC Cadets Employees become tense, fearful, or resentful

--JLBC Cadets Employees expect to have their opinions heard

--JLBC Cadets Employees begin depending on their manager to make all their decisions
