Summary of this Leadership
Advantages & Disadvantages
Democratic leadership does present some disadvantages. A democratic approach to management may not be as efficient as a more traditional centralized and authoritarian form of direction. Consequently, it may be more costly to the organization in time and resources. When responsibility is diffused among several different individuals or groups, accountability for mistakes or failures may be harder to determine. Some organizations or tasks may simply not be compatible with the type of employee participation required for democratic leadership.
