Autocratic leader: An autocratic leader is a leader who do involve others in his decision. He will not let the employees according to their will ness. He is a person who is very arrogant towards his employees. Autocratic leadership is the inverse of democratic leadership. Employees are neither considered nor consulted prior to a direction, and are expected to adhere to the decision at a time and pace stipulated by the leader.

Democratic leadership: A democratic leadership style is entirely an opposite of autocratic leadership style. A democratic leader always cares for his employees. He always motivate them in doing the work. He always engage them in decision making process. He is a person with friendly nature and makes relationship with others.

Transactional leader: Transactional leader is more or less similar to autocratic leadership style. These managers reward their employees for precisely the work they do. Transactional leadership helps establish roles and responsibilities for each employee, but it can also encourage bare-minimum work if employees know how much their effort is worth all the time.

Transformational leader: Transformational leader is similar to democratic leadership style. This is a highly encouraged form of leadership among growth-minded companies because it motivates employees to see what they’re capable of. But transformational leaders can risk losing sight of everyone’s individual learning. They always listen to their employees in each and every step, they are going to take. They discuss among themselves. A good style of bonding with the leader and employees will occur in this type of leadership.

Laissez-Faire leader: leadership can empower employees by trusting them to work however they would like, it can limit their development and overlook critical company growth opportunities. A good leadership style which could be executed in the organization. Laissez faire leadership is exactly the opposite of autocratic leadership style. This would be similar to democratic style of leadership. The team would be involved in decision making process with the leader. If this type of leadership exists within an organization, the goal of an organization can be easily achieved and the employees would also work hard to reach their goals.
