  • 30. Contingency Approaches to Leadershipapproaches that seek to delineatethe characteristics of situations andfollowers and examine theleadership styles that can be usedeffectively.
  • 31. According to Contingency TheoryEffective leadership depends on theinteraction of the leader’s personaltraits, the leader’s behavior, andfactors in the leadership situation.
  • 32. The contingency approach isbased on the proposition thateffective leadership cannot beexplained by any one factor.It proposes that all factorsmust be considered in thecontext of the situation inwhich the leader must lead.
  • 33. a model designed todiagnose whether a leader istask-oriented or relationship-oriented and match leaderstyle to the situation.
  • 34. Fiedler developed a uniquetechnique to measureleadership style. Measurementis obtained from scores on theleast preferred co-worker (LPC)scale.Table 5-5 Sample of Items from the LPC Scale
  • 35. How can the leader’s LPC score beinterpreted? Fiedler interprets a leader’s LPC score to be a personality trait that reflects the leader’s motivational system or behavioral preferences. High LPC leaders (those who perceive their least preferred co-workers positively) have as their basic goal the desire to maintain close interpersonal relationships with subordinates and behave in a considerate and supportive manner toward them.
  • 36. If the leader reaches his goal….He will be able to attain suchsecondary goals as status and esteem.In return, these leaders want theirsubordinates to admire and recognizethem.
  • 37. Low LPC leaders have a differentmotivational structure: Task accomplishment is their primarygoal. Needs such as esteem and status arefulfilled through the accomplishment oftasks, not directly through relationshipswith subordinates.
  • 38. Situational FavorablenessThe basic premise of Fiedler contingencytheory is that some situations high LPC(relationship-motivated) leaders will bemore effective, whereas othercircumstances make it more likely thatlow LPC (task-motivated) leaders will bethe most effective.
  • 39. Fiedler concludes therefore…That the relationship betweenleadership style and effectivenessdepends on several factors in thesituation. These are leader-memberrelations, task structure and positionpower.
  • 40. Path-Goal theory• a contingency approach to leadership in which the leaders responsibility is to increase subordinates motivation by clarifying the behaviors necessary for task accomplishment and rewards
  • 41. • Is based on the expectancy theory of motivation and emphasizes the leader’s effect on subordinates’ goals and the paths to achieve the goals.• Leaders have influence over subordinates’ ability to reach goals, the rewards associated with reaching goals, and the importance of goals.
  • 42. Four Distinct Types of Leader Behavior comprise House’s Path- Goal Theory• Directive Leadership - a directive leader lets subordinates know what is expected of them - - provides specific guidance concerning what is to be done and how to do it - sets performance standards - requests that subordinates follow standard rules and regulations - schedules and coordinates work - explains his role as leader of the group.
  • 43. • Supportive Leadership - a supportive leader is friendly, approachable, and concerned with the needs, status, and well- being of subordinates. - treats subordinates as equals and frequently goes out of her way to make the work environment more pleasant and enjoyable.
  • 44. • Participative Leadership - A participative leader consults with subordinates concerning work-related matters, solicits their opinions, and frequently attempts to use subordinates’ ideas in making decisions.
