Patterns of Leadership Behavior

1. TELLING. The leader identifies a problem, considers alternative solutions, chooses one of them and then tells his followers what they are to do. He may or may not consider what he believes the group members will think or feel about the decision.

2. SELLING. The leader makes the decision without consulting his group. However, instead of simply announcing his decision, he tries to persuade the group members to accept it. He points out how he has considered the organizations goals and interests of the group members and states how the members will benefit from carrying out the decision. 3. TESTING. The leader identifies the problem and proposes a tentative solution. Before finalizing it, however, he gets the reaction of those who will implement it.

4. CONSULTATIVE. The leader gives the member a chance to influence the decision from the beginning. He presents a problem and the relevant background information, then asks the members their ideas on how to solve it. In effect, the group is invited to increase the number of alternative actions to be considered. The leader then selects the solution he regards as most promising. 5. JOINING. The leader participates in the discussion as just another member and agree in advance to carry out whatever decision the group makes.
