A thought on leadership

One breakdown I’ve seen of leaders is into three categories: autocratic, participative, and free-reign.

In certain organizations, one may be preferable to the other. In the US Military, for instance, autocratic leadership is not only preferred, it’s in place to save lives.

But in most corporate settings, autocracy doesn’t go so well. Input from employees can shed light on problems that management may not even know exists. And that’s how those problems get addressed.
