Participative leadership (Democratic)

Lewin’s study found that participative (democratic) leadership is generally the most effective leadership style. Democratic leaders offer guidance to group members, but they also participate in the group and allow input from other group members. In Lewins’ study, children in this group were less productive then the members of the authoritarian group, but their contributions were of a much higher quality.

Participative leaders encourage group embers to participate, but retain the final say over the decision-making process. Group members feel engaged in the process and are more motivated and creative.
