Question/Description

GDB MGMT623

 

John Peterman built once highly successful J. Peterman Company using a democratic leadership style. For years, the J. Peterman catalog enticed customers with romantic ideas of living a new, adventurous life with a new pair of J.P. boots or an exotic-style shirt. Peterman instilled his vision for the company in the minds and hearts of all employees and he prided himself on his participative leadership and flexible, easygoing corporate culture. However, when the company grew rapidly during the mid-1990s, problems began to occur. Eventually, the J. Peterman Company went into bankruptcy and was purchased by Paul Harris stores. The freedom that has allowed employees to thrive in the early years become a liability during a period of rapid growth because new employees did not share the vision, philosophy and knowledge that they needed to make good decisions.

Some critics suggested that Peterman needed a more autocratic leadership style to make the rapid difficult decisions needed to deal with the company’s growth.

 

Do you agree with this criticism? Can participative leadership be a liability for an organization or hinder the growth? Give logical reasons to support your view.
