While the democratic style is considered the most appropriate (as is the style of laissez-faire, to a lesser extent), there are times when it is better to follow an autocratic style.

Whether you're leading a meeting, a project, a team, or an entire department, you might consider identifying with or adopting a defined leadership style.
In today's organizations, where team-building and information sharing are important and projects are often collaborative in nature, transformative leadership has proven to be more effective.
