Task 7: "Identify and explain four types of authority" There are four different types of authority these are: ? Authoritarian ? Dictatorial ? Consultative ? Participative I will now explain these different types of authority in detail. Authoritarian: In this type of authority the leader tells the group what has to be done and how to go on about it. An appropriate way to use this is when you have all the information you require for the task (there is nothing to discuss) but you have time limitations. This way of leadership is excellent to achieve your result. It gives the leader total power, which would be useful in the armed forces for example where personnel need to get used to not question orders. Positive and negative points about authoritarian: Positives: ? Can be effective in achieving task ? Improves discipline ? Time efficient Negatives: ? Cause resentment ? Could miss good ideas ? Low morale Dictatorial: This type of authority comes from a dictator; this term is at times wrongly used to refer to someone who is bossy or arrogant as a leader.

The review will also look at the bomb attacks on London on July 7 and 21, seeking to draw lessons from them. The two attacks will also be examined to provide "real-time" scenarios to help develop the best way to implement the policy. The policy which claimed Mr de Menezes's life is known as Operation Kratos. Senior officers who support the policy have privately said there is anxiety about whether using the tactic again would result in another innocent being killed. Mr de Menezes died on July 22 at Stockwell tube station after being mistaken for a suicide bomber. The case is under investigation by the Independent Police Complaints Commission. A string of blunders have emerged, including the white Brazilian man being misidentified as a black African terrorism suspect. Senior officers have met in the past month to learn early lessons from the Stockwell incident. Senior officers believe that the shoot to kill policy must be retained, but they have been discussing ways in which the risk of killing innocent people can be minimised. Part of the review will look at intelligence. The police source said: "In any firearms incident the most crucial bit is the intelligence you receive. One question is how much intelligence do you need to shoot to kill. What systems are available to check out the intelligence quickly?" ?? ?? ?? ??
