  4. 4. Leadership versus Management Leader qualities Manager qualities SOUL MIND Visionary Rational Passionate Consulting Creative Persistent Flexible Problem solving Inspiring Tough-minded Innovative Analytical Courageous Structured Imaginative Deliberate Experimental Authoritative Initiates change Stabilizing Personal power Position power
  5. 5. Major differences between manager andleader qualities relates to the source ofpower and the level of compliance itengenders within followers.Power: the potential ability to influence others’behavior.
  6. 6. Position Power Legitimate Power  Power that stems from a formal management position in an organization and the authority granted to it. Reward Power  Power that results from the authority to bestow rewards on other people. Coercive Power  Power that stems from the authority to punish or recommend punishment.
  7. 7. Personal Power Expert Power  Power that stems from special knowledge of or skill in the tasks performed by subordinates. Referent Power  Power that results from characteristics that command subordinates’ identification with, respect and admiration for, and desire to emulate the leader.
  8. 8. Empowerment  the giving or delegation of power; authority ( www.freedictionary.com)  Empowerment is the process of enabling or authorizing an individual to think, behave, take action, and control work and decision making in autonomous ways. (humanresources.about.com) Empowering employees works because total power in the organization seems to increase. Everyone has to say and hence contributes more to organizational goals.

  13. 13. Behavioral Approaches Ohio State Studies 2 major behaviors:  Consideration - The type of behavior that describes the extent to which the leader is sensitive to subordinates, respects their ideas and feelings, and establishes mutual trust.  Initiating structure - A type of leader behavior that describes the extent to which the leader is task oriented and directs subordinates work activities toward goal attainment.
  14. 14. A leader may have any of four styles:  high initiating structure – low consideration  high initiating structure – high consideration  low initiating structure – low consideration  low initiating structure – high consideration
  15. 15.  Michigan Studies Employee-centered leaders:  Established high performance goals and displayed supportive behavior toward subordinates. Job-centered leaders:  Less concerned with goal achievement and human needs in favor of meeting schedules, keeping costs low, and achieving production efficiency.
  16. 16.  The Leadership Grid  A two-dimensional leadership theory that measures leader’s concern for people and concern for production.
  17. 17. Leadership Grid Figure 9 Country Club Management (1,9) Team Management (9,9) Thoughtful attention to the needs of Work accomplishment is from 8 people for satisfying relationships leads committed people; interdependenceC to a comfortable, friendly organization through a “common stake” inO atmosphere and work tempo. organization purpose leads toN 7 relationships of trust and respect.CER 6 Middle-of-the-Road Management (5,5)N Adequate organization performance isF 5 possible through balancing the necessity toO get out work with maintaining morale of peopleR at a satisfactory level.P 4EOP 3L Impoverished Management (1,1) Authority-Compliance (9,1)E Exertion of minimum effort to get Efficiency in operations results from 2 required work done is appropriate to arranging conditions of work in such sustain organization membership. a way that human elements interfere 1 to a minimum degree 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 CONCERN FOR PRODUCTION
  18. 18. Contingency Approaches  A model of leadership that describes the relationship between leadership styles and specific organizational situations.
  19. 19.  Fiedler’s Contingency Theory Leadership Style:  Relationship-oriented leader – concerned with people, as in the consideration style.  Task-oriented leader – primarily motivated by task accomplishment, which is similar to the initiating structure style.
  20. 20. Leadership style was measured with aquestionnaire known as the Least PreferredCoworker (LPC) scale.example:open - - - - - - - - guardedquarrelsome - - - - - - - - harmoniousefficient - - - - - - - - inefficient
  21. 21. Situation: Leadership situations can be analyzed in terms of three elements. 1. Leader-member relations – refers to group atmosphere and members’ attitude toward and acceptance of the leader. 2. Task structure – refers to the extent to which tasks performed by the group are defined, involve specific procedures, and have clear, explicit goals. 3. Position power – is the extent to which the leader has formal authority over subordinates.
  22. 22. How Leader Style Fits the Situation
  23. 23. A leader needs to know two things in order touse Fiedler’s Contingency Theory:  The leader should know whether he/she has a relationship- or task-oriented style.  The leader should diagnose the situation and determine whether leader-member relations, task structure, and position power are favorable or unfavorable.
  24. 24.  Hersey and Blanchard’s Situational Theory Situational Theory  A contingency approach to leadership that links the leader’s behavioral style with the task readiness of subordinates.
  25. 25. Four leadership styles: 1. Telling style – reflects a high concern for production and a low concern for people. (Directive style) 2. Selling style – based on a high concern for both people and production. 3. Participating style – based on a combination of high concern for people and low concern for production. 4. Delegating style – reflects a low concern for both people and production.
  26. 26. Low Readiness Level  Telling StyleModerate Readiness Level  Selling StyleHigh Readiness Level  Participating StyleVery High Readiness Level  Delegating Style
  27. 27. Hersey-Blanchard’s Situational Theory of Leadership
  28. 28.  Path-Goal Theory  A contingency approach to leadership specifying that the leader’s responsibility is to increase subordinates’ motivation by clarifying the behaviors necessary for task accomplishment and rewards. This model is called a contingency theory because it consists of three sets of contingencies (leader behavior and style, situational contingencies, and the use of rewards to meet subordinates’ needs.) Fiedler Theory assumption would be to switch leaders as situations change. In Path-Goal Theory, leaders switch their behaviors to match the situation.
  29. 29. Leader Roles in the Path-Goal Theory
  30. 30. Fourfold classification of leader behaviors: 1. Supportive leadership – involves leader behavior that shows concern for subordinates’ well-being and personal needs. This is similar to the consideration leadership. 2. Directive leadership – occurs when the leader tells subordinates exactly what they are supposed to do. This is similar to the initiating-structure leadership. 3. Participative leadership – the leader consults with his/her subordinates about decisions. 4. Achievement-oriented leadership – occurs when the leader sets clear and challenging goals for subordinates.
  31. 31. Two important situational contingencies are: 1. The personal characteristics of group members. Include such factors:  Ability  Skills  Needs  Motivations 2. The work environment. Include such factors:  Degree of task structure – the extent task are well-defined and have explicit descriptions and work procedures.  Nature of formal authority system – the amount of legitimate power used by managers and the extent to which policies and rules constrain employees’ behavior.  The work group – the educational level of subordinates and the quality of relationships among them.
  32. 32. Path-Goal Situations & Preferred Leader Behavior
  33. 33.  Substitute for Leadership The final contingency approach suggests that situational variables can be so powerful that they actually substitute for or neutralize the need for leadership.  Substitute – a situational variable that makes a leadership style unnecessary or redundant.  Neutralizer – a situational variable that counteracts a leadership style and prevents the leader from displaying certain behaviors.
  34. 34. Substitute and Neutralizers for Leadership Variable Task-Oriented People-Oriented Leadership LeadershipOrganizational variables: Group cohesiveness Substitute for Substitute for Formalization Substitute for No effect on Inflexibility Neutralizes No effect on Low positional power Neutralizes Neutralizes Physical separation Neutralizes NeutralizesTask characteristics: Highly structured task Substitute for No effect on Automatic feedback Substitute for No effect on Intrinsic satisfaction No effect on Substitute forGroup characteristics: Professionalism Substitute for Substitute for Training/experience Substitute for No effect on
  35. 35. Change Leadership Transactional Leader  Leader who clarifies the role and task requirements of subordinates, initiate structure, provide appropriate rewards, and try to be considerate to and meet the social needs of subordinates. Charismatic Leader  Leader who has the ability to motivate subordinates to transcend their expected performance.
  36. 36. Impact of charismatic leaders is normally from: 1. Stating a lofty vision of an imagined future that employees identify with.  Vision – an attractive, ideal future that is credible yet not readily attainable. 2. Shaping a corporate value system for which everyone stands. 3. Trusting subordinates and earning their complete trust in return.
  37. 37.  Charismatic leaders tend to be less predictable than transactional leaders. They create an atmosphere of change , and they may be obsessed by visionary ideas that excite, stimulate, and drive other people to work hard. Transformational Leader  A leader distinguished by a special ability to bring about innovation and change by recognizing followers’ needs and concerns, helping them look at old problems in new ways, and encouraging them to question the status quo.
  38. 38. Leading the New WorkplaceFour areas of particular interest for leadership in thenew workplace are a new concept referred to as:  Level 5 leadership  Women’s ways of leading  Virtual leadership  Servant leadership
  39. 39. The Level 5 Leadership Hierarchy Level 5: The Level 5 Leader Builds an enduring great organization through a combination of personal humility and professional resolve. Level 4: The Effective Executive Builds widespread commitment to a clear and compelling vision; stimulates people to high performance.
