Managers have different management styles. No manager is the same as another, or as any of the classical management styles that are defined in the literature. It is very hard to relate to a permanent style of management. During a career a manager can experience several situations. The most active managers – principals - are the transformational leaders who encourages the staff to achieve beyond the personal interest to advance a common goal stemming from it.
