A distinguished entrepreneur and the founder of Proforma, Greg P. Muzzillo understands the importance of adopting a managerial style aligned with a company’s unique profile. Managerial style is intricately related to company culture, making it imperative that leaders choose the right way to approach their management responsibilities.
Some executives take on an autocratic style, making decisions autonomously or seeking out the facts they believe they need to make informed decisions. Others approach management almost like an investigator; they solicit advice from other knowledgeable sources. At the end of the day, however, such individuals usually make decisions according to their own instincts. Still other leaders take a more collaborative approach, making the issue known and inviting input from all parties involved. He or she still reserves the right to make an executive decision but considers the thoughts of the entire team. Lastly, the most flexible executives allow the team to make the final decision, desiring consensus within the company.
