Leaders using an autocratic leadership style don't give their subordinates a chance to express their ideas or disagree with the leaders' opinion and vision. As a result of that the team become a group of people just mechanically implementing the leader's instructions which is good only for an emergency situation.

Such techniques as consultation, effective delegation of tasks, encourage becoming a leader and being involved in leadership development determined my choice.
The hierarchical structure is good but it has disadvantages as well for example employees from the bottom of the chain are not able to contact the Sainsbury’s board of directors to discuss the problems that affect the whole company from their perspective. Everything has to travel from level to level before it reaches the appropriate departments e.g. Production, IT, Sales departments. Sainsbury’s use the traditional hierarchical structure, which clearly defines each employee’s role within the organisation; it also defines the nature of their relationship with other employees. Using this hierarchical structure offers a lot of benefits and advantages when a business becomes as big as Sainsbury’s.

Abstract This paper will examine the pros and cons of interpersonal attractions in the office environment. Relationships with colleagues can be especially enticing for employees since all the long hours and hard work doesn't leave much time to go out and meet new people. However, there are many issues -- both positive and negative – that needs to be taken into account before partaking in an office relationship. The statistics show that 80 percent of office romances don’t work out (Shropeshire 2008).

This is necessary to understand because methods that are positive motivators for some employees are not always effective for others. Each individual is driven by specific needs that determine their performance and whether or not they will accept new assignments. If specific needs are not met, it
Instead of using a classical approach to management, where managers control the workers and autonomy is taken away; workers are exposed to motivational and emotional tactics to get them to increase productivity.
