Dear Abolfazl
Thank you for your participation in this topic and for your feedback.

What do you think is the most effective style?

Example:
Project Managers who are always in touch (on a daily basis) with teams get better results.
Of course, this is why perception IS reality (for your stakeholders) and there is so much emphasis on the soft skills for succeeding as a PM.

There is no "most effective" style just as there is no such thing as a "best practice". The most effective style will be the one which accomplishes the desired result in the most efficient, effective and fair manner.

Kiron gave a good answer. Let me add that Project Managers who immediately use a management style without first determining whether it is the most appropriate style for a particular project usually cause a host of problems for their teams and stakeholders.
Absolutely true. If you conduce in appropriate manner as a Project Manager, you will inspire and develop your team, otherwise, team will experiment the effects of incorrect leadership, such as demotivation, conflict or poor job results.

Dear Kiron
Thanks for your comment

Despite what you said (partly I agree) there are styles that prove to be more effective than others.

If it were not so ... different styles would not lead to different results :-)

Let's look at my example:
A person who always stands on the pedestal, or who almost never works together with the team, can have the same results as a person who is always present.

Dear Eric
Thank you for your participation in this topic and for your feedback.

We partially agree with what you wrote: "use a management style without first determining whether it is the most appropriate style for a particular project usually causing a host of problems for their teams and stakeholders"

Otherwise it would make no sense: "Be the change you want to see in the world - Gandhi"
I believe results will always depend of the context, your style and the person perceiving your behaviour. There is no guaranteed "one-size suits all" in terms of style and different results may occur.

While reading your scenario it came to my mind the popular adage "There is a lid for every pot" :)

Dear João
Thank you for participating in this reflection and for your opinion.

Between:

"Be the change you want to see in the world -Gandhi"

and

"It's not the strongest that survives, nor the smartest, but the one that best fits the changes- Charles Darwin"

There must be a style that is most effective :-)

For doing in Portuguese sayings: "To whom very low :-)
