Changing Leadership Style

Leadership style can be changed. But it takes time.

According to Fiedler, a person’s leadership style reflects the individual’s basic motivational and need structure. It takes one, two, or three years of intensive psychotherapy to effect lasting changes in personality structure. It is difficult to see how it can be changed in few hours of lectures and role playing.

Hence for an organization interested in changing the leadership styles of its managers, it is a slow and time consuming process that requires creative planning, execution and patience.

Expecting miracles overnight will only lead to frustration and uneasiness for both managers and their subordinates.
