In this style the leader lets the employees manage themselves and there is no delegation taking place from the management. This style is often called “hands off” leadership as the leader evades his duties and does not direct the employees.

Advantages:
This kind of style is positive only in the case when the employees are very responsible and in case of creative jobs where a person is guided by his own aspirations. In these cases, less direction is required so this style can be good.

Disadvantages:
This style has more disadvantages because usually it is the result of the lack of interest of the leader that leads to his adopting this style. It proves poor management and makes the employees lose their sense of direction and focus. The disinterest of the management and leadership causes the employees to become less interested in their job and their dissatisfaction increases.
