  36. 36. Chapter 3:Decision Making
  37. 37. Making choices from among two or more alternatives Decision Making
  38. 38. A systematic approach to decision making process 1- Identification of a problem/opportunity 2- Identification of decision criteria 3- Allocating weights to criteria 4- Development of alternatives 5- Analysis of alternatives 6- Selection of an alternative 7- Implementation of the alternative 8- Evaluation of decision effectiveness
  39. 39. Certainty, Risk, Uncertainty, Ambiguity • Certainty ● all the information is fully available • Risk ● decision has clear goals ● information is available ● future outcomes are subject to chance • Uncertainty ● managers know which goals they wish to achieve ● information is incomplete ● may need to develop creative alternatives • Ambiguity ● goals to be achieved or the problem to be solved is unclear ● alternatives are difficult to define ● information about outcomes is unavailable
  40. 40. * 40 Conditions that Affect the Possibility of Decision Failure Organizational Problem Problem Solution Low HighPossibility of Failure Certainty Risk Uncertainty Ambiguity Programmed Decisions Nonprogrammed Decisions
  41. 41. Classification of decisions
  42. 42. • Programmed decisions are routine decisions, made by lower-level personnel, that rely on predetermined courses of action • Non-programmed decisions are decisions for which there are no ready-made solutions. The decision maker confronts a unique situation in which the solutions are novel Strategic decisions are non-programmed decisions that have important long-term implications for the organization and are made by coalitions of high-level executives Programmed vs. Non-programmed
  43. 43. Programmed vs. Non-programmed Programmed Non-programmed Type of task Simple, routine Complex, creative Reliance on organizational policies Guidance from past decisions No guidance form past decisions Typical decision maker Lower level Upper level
  44. 44. Problems and Decisions • Structured Problems ● Involve goals that clear. ● Are familiar (have occurred before). ● Are easily and completely defined—information about the problem is available and complete. • Programmed Decision ● A repetitive decision that can be handled by a routine approach.
  45. 45. Problems and Decisions • Unstructured Problems ● Problems that are new or unusual and for which information is ambiguous or incomplete. ● Problems that will require custom-made solutions. • Non-programmed Decisions ● Decisions that are unique and nonrecurring. ● Decisions that generate unique responses.
  46. 46. Rational decision making -The problem is clear -A single well defined goal is to be achieved -All alternatives and consequences are known -Preferences are clear -Preferences are constant and stable -No time or cost constraints
  47. 47. Intuitive decision making A subconscious process of making decisions on the basis of experience and accumulated judgment
  48. 48. Intuition 1-Experience based decisions: - Making decisions based on their past experiences 2-Affect-initiated decisions: -Making decisions based on emotions
  49. 49. 3-Cognitive-based decisions: -Making decisions based on knowledge &training 4-Subconscious mental processing : -Making decisions from subconscious mind Intuition
  50. 50. When is Intuition Used? 1-When a high level of uncertainty exists 2-When there is little precedent to draw on 3-When variables are less scientifically predictable 4-When “facts” are limited 5-When facts don’t clearly point the way
  51. 51. When is Intuition Used? 6-When analytical data are of little use 7-When there are several plausible alternative solutions from which to choose 8-When time is limited and there is pressure to come up with the right decision
  52. 52. Escalation of Commitment The tendency for individuals to continue to support previously unsuccessful courses of action because they have sunk costs invested in them Escalation of Commitment
  53. 53. Escalation of commitment • An increased commitment to a previous decision despite evidence that it may have been wrong • This is because they do not want to admit that their initial decisions have been wrong
  54. 54. Reasons why people have difficulty in making decisions -Fear of failing -Fear of success/believing that others will expect always expect perfection following a success -Unable to set priorities/don’t know what to do first -Not knowing where to get the information needed to help with the decision -Hoping someone else will decide
  55. 55. ● -Having little experience in making decisions and feeling overwhelmed ● -Not being willing to sacrifice immediate comfort for the long-term gain ● -Fear that others will disapprove of the decision ● -Believing decisions won’t really matter, other circumstances will ultimately dictate the outcome Reasons why people have difficulty in making decisions
  56. 56. Decision quality 1. Know your biases 1. Do you do enough analysis? 1. Are you hesitant to make a decision? 1. Sleep on it 1. Use others to help 1. Study decision makers
  57. 57. Common Decision-Making Errors and Biases
  58. 58. Overconfidence Bias -Holding unrealistically positive views of one’s self and one’s performance. -Individuals whose intellectual and interpersonal abilities are weakest are most likely to overestimate their performance and ability
  59. 59. Immediate Gratification Bias Choosing alternatives that offer immediate rewards and that to avoid immediate costs.
  60. 60. Anchoring Effect Fixating on initial information and ignoring subsequent information.
  61. 61. Selective Perception Selecting organizing and interpreting events based on the decision maker’s biased perceptions.
  62. 62. Confirmation Bias -It is a type of selective perception. -Seeking out information that reaffirms past choices and discounting contradictory information.
  63. 63. Framing Bias Selecting and highlighting certain aspects of a situation while ignoring other aspects.
  64. 64. Availability Bias Tendency for people to base judgments on information that is readily available
  65. 65. Self-Serving Bias -Taking quick credit for successes and blaming outside factors for failures -Korean managers found that, contrary to the self- serving bias, they tended to accept responsibility for group failure
  66. 66. Contrast Effects • We do not evaluate a person in isolation. Our reaction to one person is influenced by other persons we have recently encountered. • For example, an interview situation in which one sees a pool of job applicants can distort perception. Distortions in any given candidate’s evaluation can occur as a result of his or her place in the interview schedule
  67. 67. Stereotyping • Stereotyping—judging someone on the basis of our perception of the group to which he or she belongs. • In organizations, we frequently hear comments that represent stereotypes based on gender, age, race, ethnicity, and even weight.
  68. 68. Halo Effect • The halo effect occurs when we draw a general impression on the basis of a single characteristic • This phenomenon frequently occurs when students appraise their classroom instructor.
  69. 69. -Conscientiousness may effect escalation of commitment -Achievement strivers are likely to increase Commitment -Compliant people are less likely to have this bias Personality
  70. 70. High self-esteem people are susceptible to self- serving bias Self-Esteem
  71. 71. Techniques to improve decision making Improving Decision Making 1. The Delphi Technique 2. The Stepladder Technique 3. The Nominal Group Technique
  72. 72. Delphi technique: A systematic way of collecting and organizing the opinions of several experts into a single decision 1. Delphi technique
  73. 73. 1. Delphi technique
  74. 74. A technique for improving the quality of group decisions that minimizes the tendency for group members to be unwilling to present their ideas by adding new members to a group one at a time and requiring each to present his or her ideas independently to a group that already has discussed the problem at hand 2. Stepladder technique
  75. 75. 2. Stepladder technique
  76. 76. Nominal Group Technique: A technique for improving group decisions in which small groups of individuals systematically present and discuss their ideas before privately voting on their preferred solution. The most preferred solution is accepted as the group’s decision 3. Nominal Group Technique
  77. 77. 3. Nominal Group Technique
  78. 78. Group versus Individual Decision Making Criteria of Effectiveness Groups Individuals Accuracy ✓ Speed ✓ Creativity ✓ Degree of acceptance ✓
  79. 79. Chapter 4 Interviewing Candidates
  80. 80. What is an interview? An interview is a procedure designed to obtain information from a person through oral responses to oral inquiries.
  81. 81. We can classify selection interviews according to: a. How structured they are. b. Their content “the types of questions they contain”. c. How the firm administers the interviews.
  82. 82. Unstructured or nondirective interviews: it is an unstructured conversational style interview in which the interviewer pursues points of interest as they come up in response to questions.

  97. 97. Contrast Effects • We do not evaluate a person in isolation. Our reaction to one person is influenced by other persons we have recently encountered. • For example, an interview situation in which one sees a pool of job applicants can distort perception. Distortions in any given candidate’s evaluation can occur as a result of his or her place in the interview schedule

  102. 102. Chapter 4 Dynamics of Behavior in Organizations
  103. 103. 103 Organizational Behavior (OB) • Interdisciplinary field dedicated to the study of: ✓ attitudes ✓ behavior ✓ performance
  104. 104. * 104 Attitudes • Cognitive and affective evaluation that predisposes a person to act in a certain way • Attitudes determine how people ● Perceive the work environment ● Interact with others ● Behave on the job

  107. 107. Indicators of bad attitude • unhappy look on face • slumping in chair or while standing • constant complaining • encouraging others to have a bad attitude • losing your temper • doing a poor job • ignoring others.
  108. 108. Perception How people make sense out of the environment → Selecting → Organizing → Interpreting information
  109. 109. Perception = Sensation + Interpretation Defined as a process by which people select & interpret stimuli into a meaningful picture. “How we see the world around us” - Two individuals may be exposed to the same stimuli but recognize, select, organize and interpret them differently based on their own needs, values and expectations
  110. 110. Personality
  111. 111. 1) The ID operates on the pleasure principle. The ID is selfish and illogical. 2) The superego (which is the counterweight to the ID). It is a person’s conscience. a) It internalizes society’s rules. b) It works to prevent the ID from seeking selfish gratification. 3) The ego tries to balance these two opposing forces according to the reality principle. Freudian theory
  112. 112. The Big Five Extroversion - Introversion Emotional stability Agreeableness Openness to experienceConscientiousness Source: Adapted from T.A. Judge, D. Heller, and M.K. Mount, 2002. “Five Factor Model of Personality and Job Satisfaction: A Meta-Analysis.” Journal of Applied Psychology,87 (June), 530(12)
  113. 113. Leadership and Personality • There are 5 basic personality dimensions. ● Neuroticism – the experience of negative emotion ● Extraversion – interest in people and being in charge ● Openness – liking the new and different ● Agreeableness – going along to get along ● Conscientiousness - liking a structured and organized life
  114. 114. Leadership and Personality • The best predictor of long-term success is self-awareness of your personal style. ● Allows you to play to your personal strengths ● Know where you need some help and support • No one personality type is best – Different types are most likely to be successful in different kinds of organizations and in different types of jobs.
  115. 115. The Big Five Dimensions of Personality Sources: Greenberg. J. and Baron . R. “Behavior in Organization”
  116. 116. Emotional Intelligence (EI) An assortment of noncognitive skills, capabilities, and competencies that influence a person’s ability to succeed in coping with environmental demands and pressures.
  117. 117. Dimensions of Emotional Intelligence
  118. 118. 1-Self-awareness: knowing what you’re feeling
  119. 119. The Johari Window – a graphic model of aware-ness in international relationsKNOWNUNKNOWN UNKNOWNKNOWN 3 4 SELF Tell others Ask others OPEN 1 2 BLIND HIDDE N UNKN OWN O T H E R S Your objective is to make quadrant #1 as large as possible!
  120. 120. The open area is that part of our conscious self – our attitudes, behavior, motivation, values, way of life – of which we are aware and which is known to others. We move within this area with freedom. We are “open books”. Open quadrant
  121. 121. We are more rich and complex than that which we and others know, but from time to time something happens – is felt, read, heard, dreamed – something from our unconscious is revealed. Then we “know” what we have never “known” before. Unknown quadrant
  122. 122. There are things about ourselves which we do not know, but that others can see more clearly; or things we imagine to be true of ourselves for a variety of reasons but that others do not see at all. When others say what they see (feedback), in a supportive, responsible way, and we are able to hear it; in that way we are able to test the reality of who we are and are able to grow. Blind quadrant
  123. 123. Our hidden area cannot be known to others unless we disclose it. There is that which we freely keep within ourselves, and that which we retain out of fear. The degree to which we share ourselves with others (disclosure) is the degree to which we can be known. Hidden
  124. 124. 2- Self-management: managing emotions and impulses
  125. 125. Self management • A group of four-years old and five years old were offered a marshmallow, which the researcher placed in front of each child on the desk • Then, the children were told if they can wait a few minutes while the researcher ran an errand, they would be given 2 marshmallows • Some children were unable to resist the temptation of a marshmallow “right now” and ate theirs immediately • Others employed all sorts of techniques , from singing or talking to themselves to hiding under the desk , to resist the impulses and earn the reward of 2 marshmallows instead of one
  126. 126. Self management • Researchers then followed the children over a period of 20 years and found some interesting results. • As young men and women, the ones who had resisted the desire to eat the marshmallows revealed a much higher ability to handle stress and embrace difficult challenges • They also were more self confident, trustworthy, dependable and tenacious in pursuing goals • The children who developed techniques for self management early in life carried these with them into adulthood
  127. 127. 3-Self-motivation: Persisting despite setbacks and failures
  128. 128. 4-Empathy: sensing how others are feeling
  129. 129. 5-Social skills: handling the emotions of others
  130. 130. Motivation in organization
  131. 131. What Is Motivation? • It is the reason for behavior • Motivation: From the Latin verb movere (to move) • It is produced by a state of arousal or tension, which exists as the result of an unfulfilled need. Individuals strive consciously and subconsciously to reduce the tension through behavior they anticipate will fulfill their needs and thus relieve of the stress they feel
  132. 132. "Never let yesterday use up today." Richard H. Nelson
  133. 133. Figure 7.1 Steps in the Motivational Cycle
  134. 134. • Conscious motives are motives we are aware of, the reasons for our behavior are clear, and these motives do not need to be aroused • Sometimes we are unaware of the reason why a particular behavior was undertaken; our motivation is unconscious Conscious vs. unconscious Motivation
  135. 135. • Intrinsic motivation is engaging in behavior for the pleasure of the behavior itself; the behavior is the reward • Extrinsic motivation is engaging in behavior for a reward that is independent of the activity Intrinsic vs. extrinsic Motivation
  136. 136. • Rationality implies people select goals based on totally objective • Emotion implies the selection of goals according to personal or subjective criteria, such as pride, fear, affection or status Rational v. emotional motivation
  137. 137. Learned or unlearned Motivation -Biological motives are programmed into our nature -They are unlearned -For instance no one had to teach you to be interested in eating or sex -Social motives are learned as a result of living in human society
  138. 138. Maslow’s hierarchy of needs • Maslow formulated a widely accepted theory of human motivation based on a universal hierarchy of needs • Holds that individuals seek to satisfy lower-level needs before higher-level needs emerge • The lowest level of chronically unsatisfied need serves to motivate behavior • When that need is satisfied, a new and higher need emerges, and so on…
  139. 139. Five basic needs (in order) ■ Physiological needs ■ Safety needs ■ Social needs ■ Egoistic needs ■ Self-actualization needs Maslow’s hierarchy of needs Physiological Needs (Food, water, air, shelter, sex) Safety and Security Needs (Protection, order, stability) Social Needs (affection, friendship, belonging) Ego Needs (Prestige, status, self esteem) Self- Actualizatio n (Self- fulfillment)
  140. 140. Motivation and personality • Self-Esteem ● The degree to which people like or dislike themselves
  141. 141. Motivation for high self esteem employees ● High self esteem • Believe in themselves and expect success. • Take more risks and use unconventional approaches. • Are more satisfied with their jobs than Low SEs. • They depend mainly on self motivation
  142. 142. Motivation for low self esteem employees ● Low self esteem • Are more susceptible to external influences. • Depend on positive evaluations from others. • Are more prone to conform than high SEs. • External motivation is very important for them to enhance their performance
  143. 143. Two Factor Motivation Theory
  144. 144. Herzberg’s Two Factor Theory Hygiene Factors Dissatisfiers • Salary • Job Security • Working Conditions • Status • Company Procedures • Quality of Technical Supervision Motivator Factors Satisfiers • Achievement • Recognition • Responsibility • Advancement • The work itself • The possibility of growth
  145. 145. McClelland’s Learned Needs Theory • McClelland believed that needs are acquired from the culture. Three of these needs are: ● Need for achievement ● Need for affiliation ● Need for power • When a need is strong, it motivates person to use behavior leading to its satisfaction.
  146. 146. • People with high need for achievement pursue goals that are challenging yet attainable through hard work, ability and persistence • Goals that are too easy those anyone can reach offer no challenge and hold no interest because success would not be rewarding • Impossibly high goals and high risks are not pursed because they offer little chance of success and are considered waste of time People with high need for achievement
  147. 147. • They are motivated more by their fear of failure than by their hope and expectation of success • This is why they set either low goals which anyone can attain or impossibly high goals • After all who can fault a person for failing to reach a goal that is impossible for almost anyone ? People with low need for achievement
  148. 148. Need for achievement From theory to application • Managers can foster higher need for achievement if they give their employees responsibilities , teach them to think and act independently, stress excellence , persistence and independence and praise them sincerely for their accomplishments
  149. 149. Treating people fairly
  150. 150. Equity Theory The essence of equity theory is that employees compare their efforts and rewards with those of others in similar situations.
  151. 151. Change Procedures to Restore Equity 1. Changing inputs 2. Changing outcomes 3. Changing attitudes 4. Changing the reference person 5. Leaving the field
  152. 152. Expectancy Theory • Expectancy theory suggests that motivation depends on individuals’ expectations about their ability to perform tasks and receive desiredrewards
  153. 153. Expectancy Theory
  154. 154. REINFORCEMENT PERSPECTIVE ON MOTIVATION • Reinforcement theory simply looks at the relationship between behavior and its consequences. It focuses on changing or modifying employees’ on-the-job behavior through the appropriate use of immediate rewards and punishments.
  155. 155. Reinforcement Law of Effect Tendency to repeat behaviors which cause favorable consequences, and not to repeat behaviors which cause unfavorable consequences
  156. 156. Positive Reinforcement • A behavior is strengthened by the occurrence of pleasant consequences. ● A manager gives a subordinate a difficult assignment to save expenses. ● The employee exerts great effort and completes it on time . ● The manager reviews the work & the employee is given 25 % of the savings as a bonus.
  157. 157. Effective discipline and punishment The process of decreasing undesirable behavior by following it with undesirable consequences
  158. 158. Restructuring jobs
  159. 159. Job Rotation it is an approach to management development is an approach to management development where an individual is moved through a schedule of designed to give him or her a breadth of exposure to the entire operation.
  160. 160. Job enlargement It is the practice of giving employees more tasks to perform at the same level of responsibility and skill
  161. 161. Job enrichment (Delegation) It is the practice of giving employees more tasks to perform that require higher levels of responsibility and skill
  162. 162. Motivation by structuring jobs
  163. 163. Base rewards on job performance Rewarding employees based on any other factor rather than job performance is called discrimination
  164. 164. Other Motivational theories
  165. 165. McGregor’s Theory X and Theory Y • Outlines assumptions of human nature in his book: The Human Side of Enterprise • Divides assumptions into two categories: ● Theory X ● Theory Y

  190. 190. Storming stage
  191. 191. Conflict
  192. 192. Competition Collaboration Compromise Avoidance Accommodation Concern for Other ConcernforSelf Low cooperation High cooperation Low aggression / energy High aggression / energy Individual Conflict Styles
  193. 193. Causes of Team Conflict ✓ Scarce Resources ✓ Communication breakdown ✓ Personality clashes ✓ Goal differences
  194. 194. Avoidance (No one wins) • Advantages ● Allows time to think ● Helps you not to get too involved in the conflict • Disadvantages ● May demonstrate that you don’t care ● Gives impression that you’re not flexible ● Lets conflicts simmer/heat up rather than working through them
  195. 195. Competition (I win, you lose) • Advantages ● Useful when you need to make a quick, decisive action ● Useful when the goal is more important than the relationship • Disadvantages ● Can harm the relationship ● May encourage others to be passive- aggressive
  196. 196. Compromising (You give, I give) • Advantages ● Can accomplish important goals in relatively short time ● Appears reasonable to most parties • Disadvantages ● Can become an easy way out, when other solutions might work better (a sophisticated form of avoidance) ● May be seen as lose-lose
  197. 197. Accommodating (You win) • Advantages ● Useful when you find out you’ve been wrong ● You can give a little and gain a lot if the issue’s not important to you ● Allows harmony of relationship • Disadvantages ● Can be harmful to the relationship if one person always gives in, and the other always gets their way
  198. 198. Collaboration (We both win) • Advantages ● Generates new ideas ● Shows respect for the other party ● Gains commitment to the solution from both parties ● Affirms importance of relationship ● Builds team approach to conflict management ● Demonstrates that conflict can be productive • Disadvantages ● May not be worth the time and energy involved ● Can be manipulative

  200. 200. Performing stage
  201. 201. 1.The level of work group cohesiveness 2.The performance goals set by the group 3.The degree of agreement between group performance goals and organizational performance goals. Factors which influence work groups performance
  202. 202. DELPHI TECHNIQUE • Used when members can not attend a meeting. • It is a method for gathering systematically written judgments from members using a set of questionnaire. • Members of the group may not know the other group members • It needs central coordinating mechanisms to manage the alteration, transmission and summarizing the questionnaire data.
  203. 203. Are Delphi Groups Effective? • Evidence indicates that Delphi groups can be more effective. • The average performance was higher for Delphi groups than for undisciplined groups both working on a comparable problem solving task. • Delphi groups eliminate the effects of dominant personalities on group decision making and the effects of perceived member status on group decision making. • E. mail systems and the World Wide Web create obvious advantages to the use of Delphi groups. • Delphi groups are quite different from nominal groups.
  204. 204. Social Loafing in groups • Members who do not perform their fair share of the group’s work. • They are practitioners of the fine art of social loafing because they cause average member effort and performance to decline as group size increases. Explanations for social loafing: 1) Equity of effort 2) Loss of personal responsibility (‘It’s a large group, no one will miss me) 3) Reduced effort caused by reward sharing (‘Everyone is paid the same, so why should I put in extra hours?’ 4) Coordination complexity in larger groups
  205. 205. Reduction of Social Loafing in Groups 1 Focus on the interesting and important aspects of the task. 2 Assure members that their contributions are identifiable . 3 Tell group members that they should not tolerate inadequate effort or performance from group members. 4 They should expect to have their performance evaluated. 5 Ensure that some portion of rewards received by group members is dependent on their performance.
  206. 206. Leading
  207. 207. Leaders Are Born, Not Made • Can anyone disagree that people like Abraham Lincoln and Franklin Roosevelt were gifted political leaders? Or that Joan of Arc and George Patton were brilliant and courageous military leaders? Or that Henry Ford, Jack Welch, Steve Jobs, and Rupert Murdoch are gifted business leaders? As one reviewer of the literature put it, “Leaders are not like other people.” These leaders are great leaders because they have the right stuff—stuff the rest of us don’t have, or have in lesser quantities
  208. 208. Leadership ✓ The ability to influence people toward the attainment of organizational goals. ✓ Leadership is dynamic and involves the use of power.
  209. 209. Influence is acquired through “ARATA” being: Admired Respected Appreciated Trusted Accepted
  210. 210. Leaders vs. Managers Leaders • Innovate • Develop • Inspire • Long-term view • Ask “what & why” • Originate • Challenge status quo • Do the right things Managers • Administer • Maintain • Control • Short-term view • Ask “how & when” • Imitate • Accept status quo • Do things right
  211. 211. What are the sources of power for a manager??
  212. 212. • Legitimate power is the power someone has because others recognize and accept his or her authority • Reward power is the power to control the rewards others receive • Coercive power is the capacity to control punishment • Information power is the power a person has by virtue of his or her access to valuable data or knowledge Position Power
  213. 213. • Rational persuasion is the power leaders have by virtue of the logical arguments and factual evidence they provide to support their arguments • Expert power is the power leaders have to the extent that others recognize their expert knowledge on a topic • Referent power is the power that individuals have because they are liked and admired by others • Charisma is the power someone has over others because of his or her engaging and magnetic personality Personal Power
  214. 214. Charismatic leadership Leaders who have the ability to inspire and motivate people to do more than they would normally do despite obstacles and personal sacrifice
  215. 215. Charismatic leaders • Charismatic leaders earn followers’ trust by being willing to incur great personal risk • According to a personal friend of the king family, Martin Luther King received death threats against himself and his family almost every day during the civil rights movement • By taking risks leaders enhance their emotional appeal to followers
  216. 216. Charismatic leaders • Passion & Enthusiasm! ● If you’re not passionate, why should we care? • Example: Martin Luther King. ● I have a dream… that one day this nation will rise up; live up to the true meaning to its creed: We hold these truths to be self-evident that all men are created equal.
  217. 217. The black Hat of charisma • One characteristic of charisma noted by most researchers is that it can be a curse as well as a blessing • Because the basis of charisma is emotional rather than logical or rational, it is risky and potentially dangerous
  218. 218. The black Hat of charisma • One explanation for the distinction between charisma that results in positive outcomes and that which results in negative outcomes relates to the differences between personalized leaders and socialized leaders • Personalized behavior is based on caring about self while socialized behavior is based on valuing others

  223. 223. Democratic style ● A leader who involves employees in decision making, delegates authority, encourages participation in deciding work methods and goals, and uses feedback to coach employees ● A democratic-consultative leader seeks input and hears the concerns and issues of employees but makes the final decision him or herself ● A democratic-participative leader often allows employees to have a say in what’s decided
  224. 224. ■ Shares decisions ■ Builds morale ■ Coaches people ■ Avoids conflict ■ Cares for group ■ Friendly Democratic style
  225. 225. Suitable if: ■ People’s authority relations clear ■ People’s jobs are repetitive ■ People’s responsibility is clear Democratic style
  226. 226. ■ People have complete freedom ■ People decide ■ Leader in the shadow Laissez Faire = Delegating
  227. 227. Suitable if: ■ People are skilled ■ People are achievers ■ People are self motivated Laissez Faire = Delegating
