“In the 1950s, management theorists from Ohio State University and the University of Michigan published a series of studies to determine whether leaders should be more tasks or relationship (people) oriented. The importance of the research cannot be over estimated since leaders tend to have a dominant style; a leadership style they use in a wide variety of situations”. (Johannsen)
Surprisingly, determining the best management style doesn’t favor one style over the other, research discovered that “there is no one best style: leaders must adjust their leadership style to the situation as well as to the people being led”. (Johannsen)
Supervisors, managers and team leaders make daily decisions that reflect on their leadership style to employ in each work situation. Most of the managers foster employee involvement and employee empowerment to enable team members to contribute their best effort at work.
