A lot of new managers err in selecting the right leadership style when they move into management, why do you think this happens?

Most people are not skilled in selecting among leadership styles--even if they are skilled in more than one leadership style. Selecting an appropriate style involves making an assessment of the situation and predicting the effects of a particular style on that situation. Hidden agendas and/or dysfunctional relationships are often involved.

New managers, are, by definition, inexperienced in management. They can be expected to make errors in attempting to do something that
  - they are not skilled in
  - they have not done before
  - involves hidden factors.

Since we all are human, we all have our wn style based upon what we were taught meaning there really isn't a right or wrong style and what worked for them in the past is carried on by them and may not necessarily work in a new setting but its what they were taught so theyll try it again
