This paper describes the characteristics of each of the styles of leadership. The author points out the kinds of messages sent from each of the styles. The paper relates the bias toward democratic leadership.

From the Paper:

"In a seminal and much-cited article on the subject of leadership, Lewin, Lippitt and White coined the term democratic-style leadership to refer to a method of managing that involved give and take between leaders or managers and the people whose jobs they were guiding. Later identified with group leadership, democratic leadership was valorized vs. autocratic leadership on one side and laissez-faire leadership on the other. One may readily infer the bias in favor of democratic leadership style from the mere naming of the other style terms."
