Tight time constraints LEADERSHIP What is Leadership? The ability to influence, motivate, and enable others to contribute to the effectiveness and success of the organizations of which they are members. Robert House (2004) The ability to influence a group toward the achievement of a vision or set of goals. Robbins & Judge (2008) History of Leadership Thought Trait Theories ( -1940s)

Behavioral Theories (1940s-1960s) Contingency/Situational Approaches (1960s- ) Contemporary Transformational Leadership Trait Theories of Leadership "GREAT MAN" Theories Little agreement on leadership traits Traits can be developed/improved In isolation, narrow traits have little utility Trait Theories Today CANOE Dimensions Extroversion relates most strongly to leadership Conscientiousness and openness to experience strongly related to leadership

Charisma Confidence Credibility Integrity Track Record Emotional Intelligence Emotional Intelligence Ability to detect, express, and manage emotion in oneself and others. Self (Personal Competence) Other (Social Competence)

Recognition of emotions Self Awareness Social Awareness (Empathy) Regulation of emotions Self-Management Relationship Management The caring part of empathy, especially for people with whom you work, is what inspires

people to stay with a leader when the going gets rough. The mere fact that someone cares is more often than not rewarded with loyalty. James Champy, Outsmart BEHAVIORAL APPROACHES: OHIO STATE STUDIES LEADERSHIP BEHAVIORS: 1. Initiating structure: The extent to which a leader is likely to define and structure his or her role and those of subordinates. 2. Consideration:

The extent to which a leader is likely to build job relationships characterized by mutual trust, respect for subordinates' ideas, and regard for their feelings. Effective leaders achieve both. BEHAVIORAL APPROACHES: MICHIGAN STUDIES LEADERSHIP TYPES: 1. Production Oriented Leaders: Focus on the technical or task aspects of the job See people as a means to goal accomplishment

2. Employee Oriented Leaders: Emphasize interpersonal relations Take a personal interest in subordinate needs Accept individual differences Effectiveness is associated with employee oriented leadership behaviors. Blake/Mouton Leadership Grid Concern for People

Concern for Production 7 8 High BULLY OR VICTIM? Was Hallums a bully? Or, was he a victim? Why? Have all the contingencies been taken into account? Who were his followers? Does it matter? Was Hallums a good leader or a poor leader? What can we conclude about leadership?

BULLY OR VICTIM? Conclusions There is no one best style of leadership Effective leaders possess and use more than one style of leadership. Effective leaders alter their task and relationship orientation to fit the situation. A small set of employee characteristics and (e.g., ability, experience, need for independence) Environmental factors are relevant contingencies (e.g., task characteristics of autonomy and variety) Consider Leadership that gets results (pp. 82-83) Leadership That Gets Results Coercive In a crisis or genuine emergency

Authoritative Changes require a new vision; Clear direction is needed Not good if followers are more experienced than leader Democratic To build buy-in or consensus; get input from valuable/committed employees Leader is uncertain Pace Setting Get quick results from highly skilled and self motivated professionals

Affiliative Heal rifts in a team or motivate during stressful circumstances Coaching Help an employee improve performance or develop strengths Must want to improve
