Leading by inclusion and participation

"Democratic Leadership" will teach you the democratic approach to leadership. Democratic leaders ask the question: “What’s your opinion?” And, before making decisions, they wait to hear that answer. Committed to understanding all voices, these leaders take on a participative role. 

However, like all leadership styles, the democratic framework has its drawbacks. And, before deciding if it’s the best path for you, you’ll need to consider the approach from all angles.
