Management Style

For employees to be satisfied with their supervisor’s style of management, the style must be tailored to the abilities of the employees.


Autocratic managers make all decisions independently and tend to manage employees very closely, even on routine tasks.

For employees who need a high amount of support to do their jobs, an autocratic management style is effective because it drives employees to do quality work despite their need for micro-management.


A permissive management style makes the most of employees who don’t need a lot of supervisory support to complete their job.

Permissive managers encourage employees to take part in decision-making and extend a high-degree of autonomy to employees in completing routine tasks.

This type of employee also facilitates delegating responsibilities downward because they are willing and able to complete their job tasks.
