TASK 11.1 Comparison between different management styles For comparing different management styles, two organisations are being taken. One isHotel Marriott from hospitality industry and other is Cox and Kings which is a tour and travelcompany. Managers have different kind of style for dealing and managing tasks and activities inan organisation. Their managerial styles make direct impact on performance of staff as well asorganisation. There are two types of managerial styles which are used by the managers of HotelMarriott. Here autocratic management style is adopted sometimes when the manager has to maketough decisions and is unable to take opinions from his subordinates (Graber and et. al., 2016).These decisions reflect his own opinions and personality. Also is is used when there is time ofcrisis in hotel. Along with this style, consultative management style is also adopted which is verydifferent from the above style. From this style decisions are taken in favour of the employees andthe cited hotel both. With this style, communication is usually downward, but feedback takenfrom employees is promoted for maintaining morale.
On the contrary, manager in Cox and Kings follows democratic management style underwhich he allows employees to take active participation in the decision making process. Thecommunication is extended in both directions i.e. from employees to top manager and vice versa.This type of style is mainly taken in use when difficult decisions are to be taken which needs arange of special skills and knowledge. With this style, job satisfaction and work quality improvesand contribution of employees is high (Lee, and 2010). This in turn makes improvements in theirperformance and productivity. But with managerial style, the decision making process is veryslow in cited tour company. Apart from this, chaotic management style is being applied in Coxand Kings. It is modern style management which offers total control to its employees in thedecision making process. Through this, style of management the cited firm aims to be the mostinfluential and innovative firm. 1.2 Characteristic of leadership stylesThere are several types of leadership styles which exist in both the cited organisations. Todetermine which leadership styles matches the company best, the culture and goals are to bedetermined. Some of the firms provide many leadership styles depending on the required tasks tocomplete and needs of each department. In Hotel Marriott, laissez-faire leadership style isfollowed. The employees who are highly skilled and experienced and needs less supervisioncome under the head of laissez-faire leaders. The members of team are given full freedom to dotheir jobs and the way they want to set their deadlines (Corner and Ho, 2010). With thisleadership style, transactional leadership style is also applied in mentioned hotel. With this, styleleaders get some tasks to do and they offer rewards or punishments to members of team on thebasis of performance outcomes. Employees are provided rewards like bonuses when goals areattained.Cox and Kings also adopts two different leadership styles. It applies participativeleadership styles which gives due recognition to the input given by team members and fellowmembers. However, the final responsibility for taking decisions lies with the participative leaderonly. This leadership style boosts moral in employees of cited company as they make significantcontributions in the decision making process. It makes them feel that their opinions and viewalso matter to the firm (Johnson, 2017). Along with this, strategic leadership style is alsofollowed. Here the leader is not restricted to top management only. He fills the space betweenrequirement for new possibilities and requirement for utility by giving normative set of habits.
