I haven't been the leader of much, but I would say I have a democratic leadership type. I'm always looking at the feedback of subordinates and crosstalk versus delegation. I lead by example and personality, I would rather have my followers say "yes sir" even before I give the order. I think all I have to do as a leader is to have the clearest vision and be able to communicate this to subordinates - because more often than not they will get the job done. I usually don't rush for the leadership of a group though, I'd rather lay back and let the more aggressive people seize it. But I really dislike who people rush for a leadership position and relentlessly try to keep themselves on top, especially if they do it by limiting feedback and trying to tie the team's interest to his personal one.
