Leadership – Ability to be effective

The style of leadership developed by the leader himself needs time to be achieved and depends on its experience and training.
There are  four internal forces to influence the style of leadership:  
- The  values:  The leader understands how  is the way required for  participating  in the official decisions and his understanding about what is important for a  employee to take responsibility for the decision itself;  
- Confidence in officials: To put the decision in the hands of its officials and have their confidence about the results of the outcomes
 - Aptitude for leadership:   the leader,  may have a predominant style  who likes to work in groups  and letting the employee to take decisions which he considers as the most suitable; 
 - Sense of security in uncertain situations: it has great impact on the willingness of the manager to assign to others the control of decision making.    

Determination: directly used for those with low maturity. This profile is characteristic of people who have neither ability nor desire to take responsibility for completion of tasks. This can be caused by insecurity to the task. The person presenting this type of maturity must be supervised.
Persuading: set to maturity among people with low and moderate, who is unable to perform the task, but are available to take responsibility, is a person who trusts you.
Sharing: Here the leader is capable, but its decision is diminished by its lack of security in itself when necessary take responsibility. The consequence is that the leader should focus on the behavior of relationships, maintaining open communication to create a motivating environment.
Delegate:  The leader gives the direction in small doses, and is also a small doses of support.
Synthesizing the styles of leadership:  
Style 1: The leader directs its staff. The leader provides specific instructions and closely supervises the performance of tasks.  
Style 2: The leader trains before. The leader continues to direct and supervise closely the performance of tasks, but also explains decisions and encourages the development.  
Style 3: The leader supports the decisions. The leader facilitates and supports the efforts of officials to perform tasks and share with them the decision making.  
Style 4: The leader delegates tasks to the employees. The leader moves the responsibility of decision making and the solution of problems to officials.
