Today managers are being encouraged to adopt democratic values and empowering attitudes. According to researchers and management experts leadership potential has its roots partly in genetics, partly in childhood development and partly in adult experience. It is proposed in this study that empowering attitudes are to an extent inculcated during childhood and adolescence and parental authority style has a bearing on the leadership style of individuals and thus some managers would be more amenable to empowering leadership style, by virtue of their democratic upbringing which gave them a taste of democracy, independence, and autonomy. The study adopts a dual approach by analyzing quantitative data (survey based design) as well as qualitative data (semi structured interviews) to gain rich cultural input coupled with a thorough empirical investigation.
