Thank you Miliswa
I agree we as PM must where diferent hats based on the situation and the team we develop.
Is there leadership style you perfer to use and why?
Theory Y, and most definitely situational, with a general leaning toward democratic.

I like to include my team(s) in the decision making process, and encourage team member creativity by problem solving and providing solutions. The more democratic approach.

With that said, I have often found myself in situations where decisions need to be made quickly, and a more authoritative approach is required. I am comfortable playing a more autocratic role if needed.

I also like to allow for a certain amount of freedom, once I've become familiar with the overall team's competencies and am comfortable with their work ethic.
Not quite laissez-faire (I've never liked that term), but perhaps more of a self empowering approach.

Thank you Julian
I agree with Theory Y better than Theory X
I am more of a Democratic to recieve inputs and I perfer giving options before making decisions. It is rare for me to put on a drill sergeant hat, but it does fit when I need to be authorative.
What I cringe at is either myself or someone else losing control or professionalism. Unhealthy behaviors are so determental to projects
