Iqbal, Anwar, Haider (2015). Effect of Leadership
Style on Employee Performance.
The purpose of the study was to investigate the effect of the different
leadership styles (autocratic, democratic, and participative) on the employees’
performance. The autocratic style is characterized by an “I tell” philosophy. The
democratic approach is characterized by an “I share” philosophy. Participative
leadership style is that involves all members of a team in identifying
essential goals and developing procedures or strategies for reach those goals. One
of the main benefits of participative leadership is that the process allows for
the development of the additional leaders who can serve the organization at a
later date. As elaborate by Myron Rush and Cole the participative style of
leadership has a greater positive effect on employee performance in which
situation employee feel power and confidence in doing their job and in making
different decisions. And in autocratic style leaders only have the authority to
take decisions in which employees’ feels inferior in doing jobs and decisions.
In democratic style employee have to some extent discretionary power to do work
so their performance is better than in autocratic style. The
authoritative style is appropriate when new employees are unfamiliar and don’t
have sufficient know how about their jobs. The consultative style is
appropriate when organization needs creative problem solving. The participative
style is appropriate when organization have competent and talented team members.
The democratic leadership style in Al-Ghazi tractor factory would further empower
their employees by developing teams and according some measure of power and
authority to their employees. The Al-Ghazi tractor factory would immediate
reduces the autocratic leadership practices. Hence, Al-Ghazi tractor factory
would advocate for the better leadership styles that suites different
situations so as to reduce the dominance of autocratic leadership unless in
situations where it is necessary.
