q. Consultative leaders confer with group members before making a decision. However, they retain the final authority to make decisions b. Consensus r. Strive for consensus. They encourage group discussion about an issue and then make a decision that reflects general agreement and that group members will support. A decision is not considered final until it appears that all parties involved will at least support the decision. c. Democratic s. Confer final authority on the group. They function as collectors of group opinion and take a vote before making a decision. t. u. v. w. Autocratic Leadership x. In contrast to participative leaders are autocratic leaders, who retain most of the authority . They make decisions confidently, assume that group members will comply, and are not overly concerned with group members' attitudes toward a decision. Autocratic leaders are considered task-oriented because they place heavy emphasis on getting tasks accomplished. Typical autocratic behaviors include telling people what to do, asserting themselves, and serving as a model for team members. y. Leadership Grid styles z.A classic method of classifying leadership styles suggests that the best way to achieve effective leadership is to integrate the task and relationship orientations. The Leadership Grid™ is a framework for specifying the extent of a leader's concern for production and people.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
