Leadership at a Glance – Resource List   


What Kind of Leader Are You?

Authoritarian (Autocratic)

I Want You Both To…  Leaders tell their followers what to do without getting their input.  Use on rare occasions, if you want to gain commitment & motivate try the Participative style.

Participative (Democratic)

Let’s Work Together to Solve This...  Leaders include one or more club women in the decision making process.  Use when you have part of the information, and your employees have other parts.  A good leader is not expected to know everything and appreciates the knowledge and skills of others.  

Delegative (Free Reign)

You Two Take Care of the Problem While I Go…   Leaders allow others to make decisions.  This is not a style that should be used to blame others when things go wrong.

And above all…Think Chocolate! Betty Crocker
