1) Democratic Leadership:
The democratic leader listens to the team’s ideas and studies them, but will make the final decision. Team players contribute to the final decision thus increasing employee satisfaction and ownership, feeling their input was considered when the final decision was taken. When changes arises, this type of leadership helps the team assimilate the changes better and more rapidly than other styles, knowing they were consulted and contributed to the decision making process, minimizing resistance and intolerance.

2) Autocratic Leadership

Creative employees and team players resent this type of leadership, since they are unable to enhance processes or decision making, resulting in job dissatisfaction.
Spiritual leadership is the role of guiding, encouraging and leading a group in spiritual and religious matters. Christian ministers leading worship services, or counseling those struggling with issues of faith, are good examples of spiritual leadership. Spiritual leadership also involves taking responsibility for the spiritual well being of others .Spiritual leadership is more than simply taking charge of a religious group. Gently guiding and encouraging each individual in their group to be in touch with their spirituality, overcome issues in their lives, and help them reach their spiritual potential is the duty of all spiritual leaders.
Authentic leadership starts within you so that the outward expression of leadership is a direct reflection of your internal landscape – your awareness, understanding, and acceptance of yourself and others. Leadership encompasses purpose, vision, effective communication, intention, and service. It is moved by how and what you value, where you place your attention, and a total commitment to your integrity.

(Handy 1993) The position of a leader can be developed in four main theories.

The transaction leader is given power to perform certain tasks and reward or punish for the team’s performance. It gives the opportunity to the manager to lead the group and the group agrees to follow his lead to accomplish a predetermined goal in exchange for something else. Power is given to the leader to evaluate, correct and train subordinates when productivity is not up to the desired level and reward effectiveness when expected outcome is reached.
Potential rewards include an increase in salary, promotions, and more benefits. Conversely, penalties may include pay cuts, demotions, and terminations. It can be seen that this type of leadership is not satisfactory for most situations. Indeed, one could say that transactional leadership behaviors do not even qualify for a “true” leadership label (Bryman, 1992).
Since it is based on exchange, transactional leadership does not seek to motivate followers beyond the level that is required to avoid punishment or gain extrinsic rewards. In sum, complete dependence on this leadership style may cause performance and satisfaction to suffer
transformational leadership is a type of leadership style that lead to positive changes in those who follow. Transformational leaders generally energetic, enthusiastic and passionate. Not only are these leaders concerned and involved in the process, they are also focused on helping every member of the group succeed as well.
The transformation leader (Burns, 1978) motivates its team to be effective and efficient. Communication is the base for goal achievement focusing the group in the final desired outcome or goal attainment. This leader is highly visible and uses chain of command to get the job done. Transformational leaders focus on the big picture, needing to be surrounded by people who take care of the details. The leader is always looking for ideas that move the organization to reach the company’s vision.
