In the police this leadership style is used but unlike the military where it used most of the time, this leadership style would be used in intense situations such as terrorist attack. The police who
The chief constable of the police (sat at the top of the hierarchy) would be the leader displaying this style. He/she is responsible for making the main decisions on how best to deal with such situation. This leadership style is best used when a well-equipped, experienced officer is making the decisions, so they are made quickly. Decisions in such situations need to be made quickly in order to deal with the situation as soon as possible before threats increase.
There are several negatives of this style, one being the police officers have no input. This means they are reliant on the leader, and the leader could give the wrong information and will adversely affect the police officers’ reputation.
This leadership style could be used where a team needs to do things fast and effectively for example on the battlefield if a unit is under fire the leader must make clear commands and the team must respond quickly as if not lives could be lost. A strength of this style is that it gives less responsibility to the employees, the leader is the only person who puts input this can make a low morale, atmosphere but can be very effective and good for quick decision making as it is the only one person in charge. Unlike democratic where both superior and subordinates make the decisions together, the leader has an authoritative power to command the team. However, a weakness of this style of leadership is that if there was a situation where it needed to be planned out more idea where the team is planning out a situation, as more ideas are better than would be better than just what the leader thinks.
