Imagine another scenario where you are in college and you have a group project to submit. Based on your exceptional skills with people, you have been nominated to be in charge. Should you decide without consultation what the subject of the project will be or should you leave it to the others and find out what they did afterwards? Neither would be appropriate. You would be better off leading a discussion and brainstorming session, delegating tasks and making sure the session stays on track. With contributions from everyone involves you could guide the process toward the stated objective. This is an example of democratic leadership which works when the leader and the led have similar skills.
