Leadership divided in 2 types of strategies

Quite interesting for those who have some leading roles in a company where they work. This linkedin.com article is about 2 general types of approaches in communication with people in their team presented at Chris Argyris seminar.
The first one is pretty much based on mis-use of power and manipulation by censoring information. Some of us could find themselfs practising this model sometimes and the research actually states that a lot of managers work in this way.
The second model shows more human tolerant and open communication learn-from-others approach and seems as an inspiration for improvement. This one by my opinion takes a bit more work, but is worth it if you want to reduce serious mistakes, have good relationships in long-term and less fluctuation of human resources.
