There are many different management styles. For instance:

(1) management by objectives: you outline the goals of the organisation and you examine whether enough is done to reach those goals.

(2) Management by exception: you outline the standards and redirect any deviation from those standards.

(3) Management by walking around: you move around through the organization, take a look at what’s happening and use your authority to improve what can be improved.

A while ago I was convinced I had discovered yet another style. Not with myself, but with someone who used to be my superior. Proudly I baptised this style as ‘management by fear’: do as I say or I will frighten you.

Online I learned that others had made this discovery long before me.
How often do you scare others to get what you want?
