A great lesson on teaching four of the main leadership styles in the world of business. There is clear theory on the importance of a good leader and how that can influence how businesses and companies are run. There is detailed theory on the pros and cons of demographic, autocratic, paternalistic and laissez-faire leaders. I have included examples for each type of leader. The lesson starts with a great leadership quiz, this will determine what type of leader each student is (I like to do a tally of the results on the board and see which type of leader is the most common). I like to refer back to the leadership quiz throughout the lesson after each type of leader is properly covered and see if students agree with their results. I have also included a nice task where students need to vote the leadership styles of famous entrepreneurs. The lesson finishes with a task where students need to read different scenarios and vote which type of leader would be best and explain why. Perfect for GCSE Business Studies.
