    Having been an employee and now being an employer I've encountered many different management styles in the past, from the straight talking "do it or you're fired" approach to the laid back "as long as it get's done that's ok" approach.

    It seems in recent that the best way to get people to do things is to make it benefit them and lay off on the pressure, e.g. with Virgins recent move to allow unlimited holidays.

    Also when you consider the studies of Dale Carnegie outlined in 'How to win friends and influence people', the latter would be the best approach.

    Which approach do you work in favour of?

    There is not one approach that fits all. It depends on the environment & type of employees you have. - "There is no one size fits all approach"

    Always give the employee a chance, but the moment he/her starts taking advantage of you giving them more slack, then put your foot down :)

    Very good points. I do feel that allowing freedom and flexibility is essential but there is no denying that there are employees out there that are ready to take advantage of it!
