    In any organization it is the desire for employees to be given favorable working conditions in order to deliver their best in order to ensure rapid growth and development of the organization. The challenge however faces the junior personnel who need to put in extra effort in order to impress their bosses and at the same time be able to go up the Maslow hierarchy of needs which are; physiological needs, safety needs, belongingness and love needs, esteem needs and lastly self actualization needs. Achieving all the mentioned needs is not a walk in the park because of the difficult working conditions that most employees are subjected to; this mainly is because of the leadership style and the organizational culture that the management has rolled out. For instance in an organization where the management has adapted to the tyrannical leadership style, then there is little chance for junior employees to go up the promotion ladder since they do not have any power to challenge the decision made by the managers. The case is however different in those organization that have adapted to the democratic leadership style since it gives employees more room to participate in the decision making process and this gives them a chance to advance in their careers.
