Leadership Task 1

...A.1. Evaluate my leadership style My main leadership style is delegator. The advantages to the employees are they work on their own, no one stands over them and they set their own work schedules. The employees use their creative talents to enhance the finished product. The employees feel that they are in charge and have a stake in the finished project. Other advantages for the employees to work this way are they have the freedom to set their own hours. They can arrive late, leave early or take a long lunch, as long as the project they are responsible for is on schedule. This style of leadership empowers and makes the employee more responsible (Beck & Yeager, 2001). Strengths: · Leader time management- The leader or manager will more time to focus on important issues instead of standing over employees making sure the work is done. · Using the best talent for the task- One person is not good at everything, if the best person is selected for the task, based on ability, the task will be completed quickly and painlessly. · Develop skills- Delegation allows employees to learn and grow. Assignments completed with a coworker will allow the employee to learn new skills that the employee does not know. Developing the employee’s skills prepares the employee for a promotion and it allows the leader to pick from a larger creative pool. · Communication- Communication is imperative, without communication between the employee and the leader, the leader will not know the progress of......

Assignment 1: Entrepreneurial Leadership

...1. Analyze and describe the founding leader, leadership style, and major business principles of a profit-oriented entrepreneurial approach in which the primary goal is to provide a product or service to consumers and to make a profit. “Entrepreneurship is the willingness to take risks to create and operate a business. An entrepreneur is someone who sees a potentially profitable opportunity and then devises a plan to achieve success in the marketplace and earn those profits.” (Boone & Kurtz, 2011) Being an entrepreneur involves taking risk, stepping out on a limb to take a chance on an idea. That is what Steve Jobs; CEO of Apple, did, he took a chance on an idea. Steven Paul Jobs was born in 1955 on February 24, and given up for adoption by his parents. (Isaacson, 2011) Job’s biological parents were two graduate students from the University of Wisconsin, who felt it necessary that their unnamed son be adopted by great parents that had went to college themselves. Jobs biological parents wanted the best for him and that included a great education. (Isaacson, 2011) Although Paul and Clara Jobs were not college or even high school graduates, they promised the biological parents that they would send Steve Jobs to college and started a savings account to fund his education. Steve Jobs interest in technology was shaped by his father and the neighborhood he grew up in. The neighborhood was filled with engineers working on electronics and other gadgets in their garages on weekends...

Case Study 1-Itt a&P

...recently been diagnosed with diabetes and I was hoping to find out what you have already had learned about the disease and then I can help you build on that knowledge. First off why don’t you tell me what you have already learned about diabetes? And don’t be afraid to ask any questions. I know that you’ve probably already started reading up about it, and it’s a little scary to think about it, but it’s a long term battle that you will need to fight, and I’m here to help you figure it out your best options for you. I’m going to start with some of the technical mumbo-jumbo and then I’ll break down for you if you need me to. To start with let me explain a little about the disease, feel free to jump in with questions as they arise. Type 1 diabetes is also known as insulin dependent diabetes or juvenile diabetes. The reason this is coming up now is because your body’s homeostasis has been thrown off by your pancreas shutting down. When your homeostasis is balanced, it is in a continuous loop. The entire homeostasis process breaks down like this, in a person without diabetes, when you eat the sugars in the food break down and stimulate your nerve receptors. Those receptors send a message to your brain, which in turn sends a message to your digestive system, specifically your pancreas in this case, to release insulin to break down that sugar. Once the sugar is broken down and the insulin has burned off your blood sugar has returned to a normal range for proper body......

Leadership Sat Task 1

...LEADERSHIP - SAT TASK 1 A1. LEADERSHIP STYLE Leadership is the ability to organize a group of people in order to achieve a common goal. My leadership style is participative leadership and it is to share decision making with each member of my group. A Participative style of leadership encompasses consultative, consensus, and democratic. As a participative leader who is consultative, it is very important that I confer with members of the group before making final decisions on issues concerning the group. In addition, as a consensus leader, it is important to build consensus among the group in order to encourage group discussions concerning an issue and finally make decisions that fully reflect the agreement and support from the members of the group. Consensus leader ensures that all members of the group are involved to support a decision before it is considered final. Also, a participant leader is a democratic leader who ensures that final authority in decision making lies on the group. In this case, the group deliberate on issues and collect group opinion, and then cast votes in order to determine the final decision to make. DuBrin, A. (2010). Leadership. The advantages of the Participative style of leadership are that it operates on bases of management openness which allow leaders to accept suggestions from group members to manage the operations. The participative style also allow welcoming ideas from workers since the workers are closer to the market and know how the......

Eassy 1 Leadership

...Reflective Essay #1 1. In my military career so far, my supervisor, Technical Sergeant Ken Dowling, has been the most competent and influential leader that I have been associated with. He has been able to give me tools to become a great leader myself. He has taught me how to find where answers to questions are. He also delegates tasks and responsibilities so jobs can be done quickly and effectively. Lastly, he also knows how to give constructive criticism and also talk to his airmen about certain issues in a positive manner. 2. My opinion about leadership is that you have to set good examples for your subordinates to follow(lead by example), when you say something actually follow through with it, hold a high standard, and hold subordinates and others accountable for their own actions and responsibilities. 3. A negative experience that I have had was when I was working with a Senior NCO on a construction project. This Senior NCO is the flight superintendant for the structures shop and utilities shop at the 101 CES. I was helping put up drywall in a building to give an extra hand, even though it was not my AFSC. What had happened was that when I was working with peers to put it up I was doing something wrong. So instead of letting me know how to do the task correctly, he told me, “you are doing it wrong” told me to get out of the way and did the work himself as I was watching. This is a great example of poor leadership quality, in both that he did not teach me how to......

Sat2 Leadership Task 1

...SAT2 Leadership Task 1 A1.) I am a Participative/Consultative leader. My style on the Leadership Grid is Sound Leader. I believe in empowering my team to participate in the decision making process both as a team and as individuals. My team members are experts in their particular functions, and as such have valuable skills and experience to add to the decision making process. In order not to slip into the Human Relations leadership style, I maintain control of the final decision after getting input from the team, and manage the insignificant day-to-day decisions with an understanding of the needs of the team and the requirements of the project. I set incremental and final goals for the team after we have discussed a project and determined the appropriate path to successful completion. I am aware of personal goals of my team members, and support them while keeping in mind the organizational objectives. a.) One strength of the Participative/Consultative leadership style is that the team members feel heard and are invested in the outcome as they have contributed to the project development and structural process. This means that there is less complaining, more focus on the goals of a project, and generally more willingness to cooperate with other team members in order to reach objectives. Another is that in utilizing my subject matter experts in a given area, I do not myself have to become an expert in each area. I trust my subject matter experts to know their area of......

Leadership Task 1

...Leadership Task 1 September 16, 2014 Leadership Analysis Personal Leadership Style After reading Leadership: Research Findings, Practice, and Skills, I believe that I fall into a Participative style of leadership, as I am very big on getting feedback about decisions, especially when the feedback is from a person or persons that have more experience in the current situation than I do. My philosophy in life and business is that most likely someone has already encountered the same project or problem and would have insight on how to accomplish or resolve. Further, I believe this mindset would put me in the subcategory of a consultative leader, where I gather input, but retain the final decision making authority. “Consultative leaders confer with group members before making a decision. However, they retain the final authority to make decisions” (Dubrin, 2010). I know that as a manager, I can be detached from everyday work that matters to the customers. This is where those whom I manage would be able to offer more insight on operations. Additionally, I am not well versed in every aspect of operations within a company, therefore, I would rely on experts in their fields, i.e., marketing, to provide insight. The openness of management with this style is a strength. As workers on the front line are involved with customers and daily operations, their feedback is valuable and real, it helps play a part in strategic planning. When employees know their opinions matter and that......

Sports Leadership

...1. Introduction Walter C. Neale’s (1964) exposition of ‘the peculiar economics of sports’ helped to focus attention upon two important and closely related themes in the economic analysis of professional team sports. The first theme concerns an adequate economic conception of sporting leagues and the second concerns a clear statement of the ‘uncertainty of outcome hypothesis’. More specifically, Neale made the first attempt to define a sporting league in economic terms and argued that leagues were examples of multi-plant monopolies being singly responsible for the administration of sports. For example, a team cannot determine its own output level (as measured by the number of games). That depends on how many teams the league admits and on how many times the league decrees teams play one another during the season. For Neale (1964), a central reason why leagues emerged as monopolies was the ‘Louis-Schmelling Paradox’. Along with Rottenberg (1956), this was one of the first formal statements of the uncertainty of outcome hypothesis, which states that sports-fan interest is greatest when sporting competition is at its most intense. While each team strives to outperform its competitors, both on the field and financially, the league’s survival depends on the maintenance of a competitive balance. In sports, every act of production requires the presence of an opponent – hence the paradox. In contrast to Neale, Sloane (1971), in an analysis of European football, argued that a sporting......

4 Es and 1 P

...Abstract The purpose of this document is to candidly assess myself on each of Jack Welch's 4 Es and 1P, including my strengths, weaknesses, and what I can do to improve. I will provide examples of occasions during my career when I demonstrated my strengths, and when my weaknesses came into play. Introduction Using Jack Welch’s 4Es and 1 P, I will provide a candid assessment. Jack Welch uses this framework because he found this was consistently effective, year after year, across businesses and borders (J. Welch, & S. Welch, n.d.). Therefore, this assessment will include my strengths, weaknesses, and what I can do to improve my performance. This document will provide examples of occasions during my career when I demonstrated my strengths, and when my weaknesses came into play. Energy Energy is one of my fundamental character traits. Several of my performance appraisals describe my energetic attitude toward getting the job done and leading my team. My supervisors have loved having me work in their organization because I bring energy to the team, and it is contagious. Actually, I have had supervisors tell me to treat my job as a marathon and not a sprint because they do not want me to get burned out. I then inform them that I am always this energetic and will be as long as I am around. I demonstrated my high energy level when I was a human resources leader on a deployment in the war zone. When we are in the war zone, we sleep, eat, work, and......

Unit 24 P.4&P.5&M.1

...Unit 24 P.4-describe the importance of referral to other agencies What is a referral? What is the difference between a referral and a recommendation? As a counsellor you will often find yourself in situations where you can’t provide an appropriate or on-going service to your clients. This might be because your agency policies state that you can only assess clients, or work with clients for a specified timeframe. It also might be because you don’t have the skills necessary to deal with certain issues such as child abuse, sexual assault, marital issues, loss and grief and so on. It is important to realise that acknowledging you haven’t the necessary skills isn’t a sign of failure but rather a professional assessment of your strengths and weaknesses. By referring a client on to someone who can help them with their particular issue you are effectively meeting your client’s need and thus helping them move a step closer to resolve whatever is troubling them. Making a referral usually means putting people in touch with services that have the resources to help them achieve their goals. It is not just about handing out a number. You are responsible for bringing the person and the service together. When we make a referral, we are basically sending a person to another professional who specialises in working with particular needs or problems. Referring a client to another professional doesn’t mean that we stop working with that client but rather that we work as part of a team to......

Alfred P. Sloan - a Leadership Analysis

...SPRING 2016 ORGANIZATIONAL BEHAVIOR INDIVIDUAL ASSIGNMENT – 21/04/2016 TEACHER: PEDRO NEVES | TA: SANDRA COSTA ALFRED P. SLOAN AND GENERAL MOTORS’ SUCCESS A LEADERSHIP ANALYSIS MARIA JOÃO MARTINS MOREIRA NUMBER: 12639 TAL 43 LEADERSHIP ANALYSIS OB SPRING 2016 – INDIVIDUAL ASSIGNMENT INTRODUCTION In this assignment I am going to talk about Alfred P. Sloan, long-time president and chairman of General Motors (GM). He can be seen as a symbol of leadership during his time, not only because of his innovative marketing system, but also because of his contribution to the concept of corporate management. Sloan became the undisputed leader of the industry, displacing Henry Ford and, thanks to him; GM was the only American car company to be profitable in the great depression. The objective here is to understand how Sloan’s leadership style led him to obtain such positive results. ALFRED P. SLOAN: WHO IS HE? Sloan was born in 1875 in the USA and he studied electrical engineering, completing his graduation in 1892. During 1916 and 1918, GM acquired the two companies in which he was a principal, which led to his appointment as VicePresident and then President (1923). In 1937 he became Chairman of the Board, remaining as Chairman until 1956. GENERAL MOTORS: THE CHALLENGE FOR SLOAN GM was formed in 1908 by William C. Durant, being the first successful merger in the industry. Durant’s idea was to buy small auto companies in order to compete with Ford,......

Leadership Task 1

...Running Head: Leadership Skills Analysis Leadership Skills Analysis Competency 325.1 Running Head: Leadership Skills Analysis As I reviewed all the different leadership styles within our e-text I came to the conclusion that my individual leadership agenda is most congruent with the participative style. " Sharing decision making with group members and working with them side by side has become the generally accepted leadership approach in the modern organization" (DuBrin, 2009, p. 113). As a leader, I strive to make an effort to extract thoughts and opinions from my team members when making major decisions that impact the team as a whole with my chosen leadership style. Participative, also referred to as consensus, leadership allows managers to evaluate and integrate the whole picture within their role allowing for a more unified approach to decision-making. Thorough assessment of my team members’ leadership styles, I have chosen to compare the styles of Delegation and Problem-Solving. (… effective leaders who are good at problem solving,[->0] skilled at managing the balance between openness and decisiveness)”. (Beck &Yeager, 2001). Problem Solvers hope to maintain a balance between sincerity and conclusiveness. The Delegator utilizes a different leadership approach. “What leaders......

Assignment 1 Entrepreneurial Leadership

...When thinking about the topics for this assignment the first thing I had to do was analyze the relationship between the entrepreneurs from today and the entrepreneurs from yesteryears. The entrepreneurs from today can learn how to profit and be social responsibility by studying the leading entrepreneurs of the past. Throughout this paper I will analyze leadership styles and major principles for a profit-oriented entrepreneurial approach in which the primary goal to provide a product or service to consumers and to make a profit. Also their major business principles for a social-responsibility oriented entrepreneurial approach in which the primary is goal to make a positive impact on society (people, families, ecology, or similar) while providing a product or service to consumers and to make a profit. This paper will also show what three resources or tools available through the Small Business Administration and SCORE would be the most useful. When thinking of leadership style I would say Blake Mycoskie who is the founder of Toms has an authoritarian or autocratic leadership style. This style is used when leaders tell their employees what they want done and how they want it accomplished, without getting the advice of their followers. Some of the appropriate conditions to use it are when you have all the information to solve the problem, you are short on time, and your employees are well motivated. They have clear expectations for their team's performance, and they......

Leadership Audit 1

...Maxwell, “Leadership is not about titles, positions or flowcharts. It is about one life influencing another.” That is especially true when you are looking at church leadership-past and present. From David to Nehemiah to church leaders of today, these leaders exercise some type of influence over the people they have lead or are leading. Aubrey Malphurs takes the definition of leadership and turns it up another notch. Leaders just don’t have influence over the people they lead. They use their influence “to influence people in a particular context to pursue their God-given direction”.[1] In other words, it is the church leadership’s job to help the people they lead to see God and His work in their lives, to understand their purpose, actively pursue God’s plan for their life, and carry that plan out effectively. Because of the heavy mandate that all church leadership carries, it is imperative for anyone who is in a leadership position to know their leadership style and their strengths and weaknesses as it pertains to leadership. The best way to do this is to do a self-elevation or use resources that will help you survey the effectiveness of your leadership. During the first half of this course, I have been given the opportunity to read about qualities that a leader should possess. Along with the reading, the author has provided audits that when taken would help me to survey my leadership style and determine to what degree I possess these qualities. This leadership......
