3 Types of Leaders by Mind Map: 3 Types of Leaders

1. Democratic: Group members are guided but still put in input and express creativity. Group members feel included so this is generally the most effective type of leader. The leader of the group get the final say even though group members are encouraged to put in input. http://psychology.about.com/od/leadership/f/democratic-leadership.htm

2. Delegative/free rein: Least productive leadership of all 3. Group members have little to no guidance and decision making is left up to them. The group doesn't corporate well and made more demands on the leader. Unable to work independently. This leadership style can work in a group with very qualified members but still the roles are poorly defined and lack of motivation. http://www.action-wheel.com/delegative-leadership-style.html

3. Autocratic: They make what needs to be done, when it needs to be done and how it should get done clear. Also you can easily see the difference between the leader and followers. These leaders take little to no input from the group and make decisions on their own. This leadership is looked at as bossy and controlling. Because creativity is not really accepted in this group it works best when there is little time and the leader knows the most. http://www.brighthubpm.com/resource-management/75715-a-critique-of-the-autocratic-leadership-style/
