This type of leadership is when an individual has total control over decisions and allows little to no input from group members. The leaders normally make decisions based on their own judgements and do not take advices from others. An advantage of this leadership style is that the leader is able to make quick decisions, which allows the group to remain safe in a threatening situation. However, a disadvantage is that employees have no input, which could lead to a problem with employee morale, due to their resentment. An example of authoritarian leadership in public services is in the army, for instance if you were fighting in a war and you were told to “get down” then you would have to get down, otherwise you may get shot.
