What is a leader supposed to do if the traits or behaviors do not consistently guarantee effective leadership in all conditions?

If leadership style can be put along a continuum from the autocratic style on the one end and democratic on the other, with an infinite number of points in between, what do leaders decide about which style of leadership they should practice?

If you are not already familiar with contingency or situational leadership, please read and understand Fiedler’s contingency leadership and Hersey-Blanchard’s situational leadership.

Here is your assignment:
From your knowledge, understanding, and experience, evaluate situational and contingency leadership theories in the literature and course materials. What is your understanding of how these theories are supposed to work?

If leaders are supposed to know under what conditions they should practice autocratic or democratic leadership, what are the relevant conditions that need to be considered? Hersey and Blanchard say it is the maturity of the followers or workers. What are your views? Under what conditions would a contingent leader be most effective? What personal experience have you had with leaders under the various styles?

Always follow APA format to include appropriate in-text citations, a bibliography, Times New Roman 12 pt. font, and a cover page.

Please use at least one source for the course book: Principals of Management, Openstax
