Laissez-Faire or free-reign leadership

In this type of leadership, the leader is just a figure head and does not give any direction. He acts principally as a liaison between the group and the outside elements and supplies necessary materials and provides information to group members.

He lets the subordinates plan and work their own techniques for accomplishing goals within the generalized organisational policies and objectives.

The leader participates very little and instead of leading and directing, he becomes just one of the members. He does not attempt to intervene or regulate or control and there is complete group or individual freedom in decision-making.
