The Leadership Theory
From my understanding of the concept of leadership I firmly believe that it is very critical to empower, motivate other sub-ordinates regardless of where they come from, regardless of their race, caste, sex, gender, ethnicity etc as well as trying to bring out the best among the sub-ordinates. And therefore encouraging, motivating them to work together as a team to achieve a common goal and therefore is very beneficial in terms of productivity for any organisation.
The democratic theory of leadership is considered an open in terms of running a team. With the help of democratic leadership exchange of ideas and views can be done freely and can be discussed more openly among the group.
The Democratic Theory of Leadership means expediting the conversation where peers are encouraged so that they can express their thoughts or ideas openly as well as freely. And therefore democratic theory of leadership brings out the best in every individual in a team. It enables peers to go beyond their capacities and look for innovative as well as creative concepts or designs which ultimately creates a creative environment.
It also improves the relationship among the team which leads to them working together as a team to achieve common goals and objectives that are set by the organisation. There is a connection among sub-ordinates because their views, thoughts are considered very critical to everyone. And from a leaders perspective every single person is bringing something among the team/ organisation which helps them to further achieve their aims.
It also improves the morale of sub-ordinates where they are seen willing to go one step ahead of their capacities which results in their job satisfaction. Sub-ordinates feel valued, accepted as well as respected and with this job satisfaction ultimately increases and also helps in increasing the knowledge among the team and therefore builds a stronger vision for the future as well.
How democratic theory of leadership links to my issue:
The democratic theory of leadership links perfectly well within my particular chosen issue that is workplace diversity. As it develops an emotional link among the team and therefore involves staff in goal planning of the department, asking for their views or opinions. As this particular theory of leadership endorses on giving everyone equal employment opportunity to participate, ideas are exchanged are freely and the bottom line is where discussion is encouraged.
This theory of leadership is based on fairness as well as competency where everyone is considered equal which therefore leads to innovative ideas which leads to a rise in terms of productivity. It perfectly works well within a diverse workforce where sub-ordinates are encouraged to share their knowledge more openly and freely. As mentioned above that this theory ultimately results in high employee satisfaction where they feel valued, accepted and therefore respected. It not only helps in staff retention but also fosters a positive relationship with the staff members.
Diversity is inevitable in any corporate structure these days. Making all kinds of people co-operative towards each other and towards the job, it will eventually help the leader achieve the predetermined goals of the organization with ease. I firmly believe that the Democratic Theory of Leadership links very well with my chosen issue as it is all about empowering co-workers and bringing out the best in them. It is really important from my perspective to empower co-workers regardless of their race, sex, gender, ethnicity etc. This theory encourages them to work together as a team towards a common goal and is also beneficial for any organisation’s productivity. It provides support among the team and removes obstacles.
As it provides support that will be beneficial
