I recently learned that there are 3 leadership styles.
Autocratic: from on high.
Democratic: help the people decide what they really want to do.
Laissez-faire: only step in when things seem to be going off the train tracks.
I prefer autocrats, I guess, unless they're bad, one way or another. One nice thing about democracies is it seems as if people can't hardly get anything done, so despite the ideas of the people being pretty bad, on the whole, most of them never happen.
