Style of leadership is the manner in which you go about communicating with those whom you lead. There are many things to be taken into account when determining what style of leadership is appropriate for a given situation. You must determine what is called for in the situation and what types of communications are possible, or necessary. You also must consider the capabilities of those whom you are leading and the con­straints of time. Knowledge of the geography, the political atmosphere, and the general mood of the populace will also be factors in your leader­ship style and decision making process. The three leadership styles that will be discussed are the authoritarian, the participative, and the delegative leadership styles. (This is part of Business Classes: Business Management Class, Online Business Management Classes, Business Administration Classes) Different situations call for different leadership actions or styles. As an MCJROTC cadet, you will face a variety of different situations that will require you to make a decision about the leadership style that is most appropriate. Therefore, it is important that you understand all three leadership styles.
Leadership style is the manner and approach of providing direction, implementing plans, and motivating people.

There are normally three styles of leadership:
Leadership Styles
Authoritarian (autocratic)
This style is used when the leader tells her employees what she wants done and how she wants it done, without getting the advice of her followers

Participative (democratic)

This is normally used when you have part of the information, and your employees have other parts. Note that a leader is not expected to know everything. Using this style is of mutual benefit -- it allows them to become part of the team and allows you to make better decisions.

Delegative (free reign)
This is used when employees are able to analyze the situation and determine what needs to be done and how to do it. This is not a style to use so that you can blame others when things go wrong, rather this is a style to be used when you have the full trust and confidence in the people below you. Do not be afraid to use it, however, use it wisely!

A good leader uses all three styles, depending on what forces are involved between the followers, the leader, and the situation.

Leadership is influencing people -- by providing purpose, direction, and motivation -- while operating to accomplish the mission and improving the organization.

Charm and grace are all that is needed to create followers.

Self-belief is a fundamental need of leaders.

People follow others that they personally admire.

It is interesting to watch a Charismatic Leader 'working the room' as they move from person to person. They pay much attention to the person they are talking to at any one moment, making that person feel like they are, for that time, the most important person in the world.

Charismatic Leaders pay a great deal of attention in scanning and reading their environment.

Charismatic Leaders use:
· Vision and articulation;
· Sensitivity to the environment;
· Sensitivity to member needs;
· Personal risk taking;
· Performing unconventional behaviour.
