Leadership Quiz: your results
Your results indicate that your leadership style is both: Authoritarian and Delegative
Authoritarian leaders provide clear expectations to group members on what should be done, when it should be completed, and how it should be accomplished. These leaders make decisions without input from group members. Authoritarian leadership is best used in situations when there is little time for group decision-making or when the leader is the one best equipped to solve the problem or give directions.
Overuse of an authoritarian style can be construed as bossy and controlling. Worst-case examples of this style can be seen when leaders utilize bullying techniques such as yelling, abusing power, or demeaning group members.
Delegative leaders allow group members to make decisions. This style is best used in situations where the leader needs to rely on qualified employees. The leader cannot be an expert in all situations, which is why it is important to delegate certain tasks out to knowledgeable and trustworthy employees.
Remember, good leaders utilize all three styles depending upon the situation. For example:
• Use an authoritarian style if a group member lacks knowledge about a certain procedure.
• Use a participative style with group members who understand the objectives and their role in the task.
• Use a delegative style if the group member knows more than you do about the task.
Great leaders need to adapt and change based upon the objectives, needs of group members, and situational factors.
o Identify leadership attributes you currently possess, and attributes you may need to develop.
o Determine how to attain and evaluate those missing attributes.
