The leadership theory that relates to the organization I am employed by is the democratic theory. The democratic theory allows for decisions to be made in a group and is more accepting of others ideas compared to the authoritarian theory (Huber,2018). This theory focuses on bringing people of different bias, professional backgrounds, and psychological needs together to make impacting result. By using this theory different ideas can be considered for the final outcome. The majority of people contributing to the outcome will be pleased since what the majority agrees upon will be the final decision. One of the downfalls of the democratic leadership theory is motivating people to participate in the decision making. With the school system having many different areas that require decisions to be made it is better to have a group of experts to put ideas together before making a final decision that would impact many people. The use of the democratic leadership theory has shown to be positive and lead to job satisfaction Worthy, Dawson, & Tavakoli (2020). A scenario where this democratic leadership can be used is having nurses that work on the same unit to decide as a team which areas the floor needs improvements on and what training should be focused on.
