Short note on the Autocratic or dictatorial leadership

Autocratic leaders keep the decision-making authority and control in their own hands and assume full responsibility for all actions.

Also they structure the entire work situation and expect the workers to follow their orders, and tolerate no deviation from their orders.

The autocratic leader believes that his leadership is based upon the authority conferred upon him by some source such as his position, knowledge, strength or the power to punish or reward.
