A great and best leader is not
merely a born-instinct; rather, is made!
Yes, no one is definitely born competent and master on how to lead
people. Best and effective leader breads
as he leads.
Looking to the different basic leadership
styles, I strongly go and prefer the Participative leadership style. I have
witnessed throughout history the effect of participative or democratic style as
needed to man a government of people. Successful
and effective leaders learn and know how to carve quality and workable
relationships that are very important to engage people to follow and implement
what is needed and required (Rosenbloom et. al., 2016).
Let us review the leadership of
President Bill Clinton, the first President who raised the employee performance
of the executive branch. This showed the
improved organizational and individual performance yielding employees’
motivation in performing well and meeting the desired goal. Furthermore, eight years after President Bill
Clinton’s presidency, President Barack Obama rekindled and reignited such zeal
to increase improved government performance as to raise employee engagement.
See! We can clearly point the best, most
effective and most productive leadership style being used not only by President
Barack Obama but also as well as President Bill Clinton—participative or
democratic style. Most of us like democratic leadership style. Many of us
admired how President Barack Obama valued the contributions of those under his
government in the decision-making process and how the government was handled.
Millennials and Gen-Xers need
participative leadership style to serve both sides of the coin. The new
generation world is so complicated and sophisticated. But, there is always a simple and best way to
handle and lead people, customize participative leadership style.
