Oligarchical Leadership Styles
Dr Robin C Hesler, Canada
What kind of leadership is in effect in a oligarchy? (Ed: Oligarchy (from Greek ὀλιγαρχία, oligarkhía) is a form of power structure in which power effectively rests with a small number of people. These people could be distinguished by royalty, wealth, family ties, corporate, or military control).

I would think it doesn't matter that it is an oligarchy. What is important is what such small group of people would do with that power. Will they use it democratically, in a threatening way or in any other way...
I don't think it's much different from most organizations these days. Most of the power and authority always sits with a small group of people (Editor: indeed, see Core Group Theory). How this group engages with the larger organization or indeed in some cases an entire nation is what really defines an organization's / country's leadership philosophy.
That's my two bits on that! Regards.
