4 STYLES OF LEADERSHIP AND WHERE THEY MOSTLY APPLY!!!

4.3

There is the slightly tyrannical leadership, the mentoring leadership, the teamwork leadership, and the servant leadership.

Some of the characteristics from all four styles of leadership are used by some enlightened leaders to fit the occasion or circumstances.

Broadly speaking slightly tyrannical leadership can be successfully used with jobs which are well defined and frequently repetitive in nature. Jobs where punctuality is important and doing all the right steps in the job in the proper order.

If an employee fails to perform the defined responsibilities well enough then a threat of firing may be used or the employee is shown how to do it right. If showing enough times still results in failure then termination of employment may occur.

The tyrannical part here is demanding a job to be done a certain way efficiently and failure to do so results in firing. Examples of where slightly tyrannical leadership may be necessary is in the fast food business and for trade workers who are expected to perform their jobs competently in a timely way or else!

Demanding acceptable performance of a job under threat of firing for failing to do so is slightly tyrannical leadership.

Tyrannical leadership management also frequently exists if the manager is afraid that some new talented employee will be good enough to replace them and they will be out of a job. Heavy turnover of employees is frequently the way that tyrannical managers keep their jobs relatively secure, especially if there is not room for advancement in the company for these tyrannical leaders.

Mentoring leadership is basically a teaching role and delegating responsibility to a relatively large extent to teach company operating procedures to ambitious employees who want to rise through the company through greater and greater responsibilities and gaining competence along the way.    

Some employees would love to be mentored in a job but unfortunately it is a time, energy, and money investment which the leader must be willing to offer and in real jobs mentors are relatively few in number unless they are actually looking for a good replacement for themselves if they plan to be promoted in the company or want to leave the organization or company.

Teamwork leadership is vital when coordinating a group of specially talented humans with diversified skills who need to work together harmoniously on one grand task or project. Google, Facebook, and other highly innovative tech companies need talented group leadership to make all the diverse specialties come together to form a high quality functioning product or products.

Servant leadership with a partial emphasis on humbleness, modesty, and humility with a tolerance for humans who betray you is only common skills applicable to charitable organizations and government social workers helping the poor, handicapped, and socially problematic humans, some even with criminal records.

When dealing with dysfunctional humans or ones with severe handicaps the servant approach can work and make those helped feel that there is a leader there who cares about them no matter what they may do with their lives.

Mother Teresa is frequently glorified as a great servant leader but unfortunately the competitive business world for the most part is far removed from practical application of servant leaders or leadership. Could Mother Teresa really lead a Fortune 500 company?  I sincerely doubt it!!!

THE TRUTH ABOUT VENGEFULNESS+

images

 Vengefulness: n. desiring to punish for a real and/or imagined (injury(s) and/or wrong(s))

 

We have all been ridiculed, name called, put down, been the victim of harsh criticism, have been rude to, been insulted, been called ugly or stupid, and have been intentionally hurt physically. The normal human response or reaction is to want to or desire to punish that human for doing us harm or wronging us. If we proceed to try and punish the offending human then that is called vengeance. Vengefulness is merely a desire to punish but not actually punishing the offender.

 

Sometimes a personally felt injury and/or wrong is just your imagination. You may not have been promoted on the job which you think you deserved. What you may not realize is that some other candidate for the job may have had superior qualifications or had developed a more friendly relationship with the boss and those are valid reasons why you were not promoted.

 

Sometimes someone ignoring you or not talking to you very frequently may be an imagined wrong since you feel that you deserve more attention. What you may not realize that communication is time consuming and that spending more time with you is just mostly a waste of time, energy, and maybe even money.

 

Being vengeful or wanting some form of revenge can make you very miserable mentally and your bitterness will hurt you more in the long duration than it will hurt the offending human.  Learn to quickly get over your vengeful feelings because they are usually mostly a waste of mental energy which doesn’t improve your life in any significant way but in fact handicaps it.
