Leadership style is the manner in which a leader uses his interpersonal behavior to influence the accomplishment of goals of the group.  An effective leadership style is one that best compliments the organizational environment, the task to be accomplished, and the personal characteristics of the people involved.    1. Autocratic style:  This is also known as 'authoritative' or 'directive' style.  An autocratic leader tends to be task oriented, i.e., he is more concerned with task accomplishment than the people who perform the task.      2. Democratic style:  This is also called 'participative' or 'consultative' style.  A democratic leader is people oriented, focusing on human relations, team work and building of an effective work group.      3. Laissez Faire style:  This is also known as 'free rein', or 'permissive' or 'anarchic' style.  This leader has no established policies and deliberately abstains from leading his group.  The general climate is one of permissiveness with no central control.  The leader wants every body to feel good and fosters freedom for every one.  He avoids responsibility and delegates complete authority into the hands of sub ordinates so that they must plan, motivate, and control and otherwise, are responsible for their own actions.    4. Bureaucratic style: In this style, the leader may be apprehensive about his ability to lead and finds security in following established policies.  He is able to use power by fixed rules and allows no variations.

There are three types of leadership styles that vary in terms of decision making styles.  They are the Authoritarian leadership, Democratic leadership and Laissez-faire leadership. Authoritarian leadership focuses on group goals and takes complete charge of decision making, demanding strict compliance from subordinates. Democratic Leadership is more expressive and makes a point of including everyone in the decision-making process. The third is the Laissez-faire leadership( a French phase meaning "to leave alone"). This type of leadership allows the group to function more or less on its own. This style typically is the least effective in promoting goals.

Some leaders are to nice therefore what they want done might not get done to the full request of the leader. Some leaders are way to aggressive and rude, they see it as the opposite of the first leader I explained, by being aggressive they think that the job will be done correctly, however this could be right or wrong because the leader must have respect from his followers for the job or whatever needs to be done, done the right way. Then you have the leaders that are just right in my opinion, they discipline when needed not when they want, they are always kind but demand things to be done right.. And as long as things are being done right they will not be aggressive. I don't know if any o that makes sense to you but it did me lol.
