Autocratic Leadership
 Viewed as a top down ruling that gets results when other
methods fail. Followers prefer to be told exactly what to do
providing unquestionable direction.
 Mark Thackeray
 Other style attempts failed.
 Had to forcefully influence students.
 Provided a clear path with no deviation.
 Joe Clark
 Other styles attempted by others failed.
 Last option was to apply force.
 No room to argue as students were told what to do.
Changing Counterproductive Norms
 Mark Thackeray
 Changed his views to the views of students.
 Interacted creatively with students.
 Demonstrated success with students to other teachers.
 Joe Clark
 Ignored the ideas and tactics of others.
 Made public spectacles of faculty and
staff.
 Used force with students to prove
they could succeed.
