If you are a manager of any level, you probably thought at least once in your life, how your inferiors would describe your leadership style. Maybe, you treat your subordinates as equals. You see a unique personality in every worker, you inspire them and try to find an individual approach to each person. Or maybe vice versa? You choose to be a commander, carrying a rigid discipline and making them feel corporate hierarchy. Are you democratic or authoritarian, harmonizer or tyrant.

Here is the list of the most common leadership styles. Analyze yourself and choose which style of leadership characterize you the best.
