Spring is here, and now is the perfect time to revisit your management style so you find new ways to connect with your team.
How you manage your team can have far-flung effects on your company’s success. If your employees feel engaged and motivated, your business can increase its productivity. In the long run, productive employees can help your business drive sales and revenues. Also, productive workers are more likely than others to feel satisfied in their everyday roles, which could help your business increase its employee retention levels.
Make spring the time to spruce up your management style. To do so, let’s look at three common management styles, along with the benefits of using any of these styles to connect with your team.
An authoritarian manager points employees toward success. This manager understands what needs to get done, then establishes a plan to accomplish goals. Plus, an authoritarian manager makes difficult decisions and accepts the outcomes of these decisions.
Ultimately, an authoritarian manager is a great leader for inexperienced workers. If employees need direction, an authoritarian manager can provide it at any time. An authoritarian manager also empowers employees and holds them accountable for their actions.
A democratic manager promotes communication and collaboration. This manager listens to employees and encourages them to share their ideas and feedback. Yet, at the end of the day, a democratic manager always has the final say on decisions.
As a democratic manager, you can let employees engage with you and provide insights that could help your business thrive. In addition, you can make employees feel valued and appreciated and foster creativity across your team.
A laissez-faire manager provides employees with the freedom to perform their day-to-day duties with little to no interference. This manager lets employees work, as long as the job gets done well and each task is completed on schedule.
Typically, a laissez-faire manager outlines a team’s goals, then lets employees work to achieve these goals. By becoming a laissez-faire manager, you’ll use a “hands-off” approach that encourages employees to experiment. As such, you may help employees deliver innovative solutions to help your company grow. You may also help your employees feel unparalleled job satisfaction.
