Transformational and Charismatic Leadership a

Words: 683 Length: 2 Pages Document Type: Reaction Paper Paper #: 34962881

Given the emergent challenges of the modern day society -- such as more and more pretensions customers, the incremental competition or the growing pressures towards environmental stability -- organizations are presented with the necessity of continually evolving and adapting to new requirements. Transformational leadership can support this dynamic organizational life by sustaining and promoting both creativity as well as innovation (Sarros, Cooper and Santora, 2008; Williams).

Transformational leadership is a relatively new concept and its implementation remains limited. Given this situation, combined with the scarcity of academic models detailing the gradual steps in the implementation of transformational leadership, a new theoretical need is identified. Some of the few sources which do integrate suggestions on the implementation of the managerial style include Stoerm Anderson and Ava Miller's Implementing transformational leadership as a model for service learning activities in an online N to BSN leadership course or ussell L. Ackoff's a systemic…… [Read More]

Transformational Women Leaders

Words: 3061 Length: 9 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 64604216

Transformational Women's Leadership

The website for Changing Minds.org describes transformational leadership in the standard way, as charismatic leaders with vision and imagination who inspire followers to achieve radical change in an organization or society. Transformational leaders are passionate and exciting and they care about their followers. They make people believe that their ideals can be achieved through their own commitment, enthusiasm and drive. In the process, their followers are also transformed and empowered to do things that they would never have believed possible. This website also points out some of the dangers of transformational leadership in that when such leaders are wrong they can lead "the charge right over the cliff and into a bottomless chasm." They may also "wear out" their followers with constant demands for high energy and commitment, especially if those at the lower levels really do not desire change (Transformational Leadership 2002-11)

Charismatic vs. servant leadership

The career of General Colin Powell is by any measure an extraordinary one. Powell was the first African-American Secretary of State and a much-talked about candidate for the presidency in his own right. From the very beginning of his career, Powell eluded conventional definitions of what it means to be black in American politics and created a unique brand of charismatic leadership. Powell self-identified as a Republican but was unafraid to be an advocate for a different point-of-view when debates about the Iraq War raged within in the administration of George ush. Powell saw the involvement of the U.S. In Iraq as a flagrant contradiction of the principles he had learned while serving in Vietnam, which was to have a clear goal for an intervention; to use military force in a rapid fashion; and also to establish the support of the American people for…… [Read More]

This study explores the relationship between leadership behavior and acceptance of a leader by subordinates. The underlying concept is path-goal theory, which is based on the idea that a leader's style can dictate organizational effectiveness, and that the style should be tailored to specific situations. There were n=200 managers in the study. They were not randomly selected, but rather were pulled from four telecom companies in Pakistan. The author found that leadership behavior does influence subordinate behavior. Another finding was that certain behaviors can be predictors of subordinate acceptance of a leader.

The study ties into leadership studies that seek to identify if there are traits or behaviors that can be used as predictors of effective leadership. The leaders in these organizations were…… [Read More]

2 Leadership Styles Transactional and Transformational

Transformational and Transactional Leadership

The global market place that is today's business environment is highly competitive, and organizational survival is increasingly perceived as being dependent upon the efficiency and effectiveness of its leadership. Changes such as the online markets and workforce, alteration of ethical and legal issues, demographic and social trends (global 'graying' of the populace), technological advances and increased globalization mean that leaders of businesses must re-evaluate and alter their styles as necessary to bring about and maintain success. Competitive advantage is the predominant goal of most business strategies - how to sustain it once achieved, and how to achieve it in the first place. Thus, understanding the effect(s) of leadership, its role in an organization, and how leadership style impacts an organization is fundamentally important. As stated by Ekuma (2014) the manner in which a company is directed affects its internal and external ethics as well as the…… [Read More]

How Can Leaders Effectively Manage Change Within an Organization

Words: 3903 Length: 13 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 56641869

Leaders Can Effectively Manage Change in an Organization

It has often been said that a manager is what one does and a leader is who one is. The differences between management and leadership transcend difference sin perception of how an organization and emanate from how a management professional chooses to gain support and cooperation in the attainment of objectives. Managers often are given the task of maintaining the status quo and minimizing variation in performance over time. Leaders are by definition the visionaries of an organization that set a compelling long-term goal or objective and then orchestrate an enterprise to their achievement. Implicit in this definition of a leader is also the ability to discern strategies issues, opportunities and risks, and also clearly communicate an organizations' strategy to the departmental or work unit level. Most of all, a leader can infuse any organization with a strong sense of purpose, energy…… [Read More]

Defining an Ethical Leader

Jeffrey Immelt, General Electric

The nature of leadership is multifaceted and often requires the continual mastery of new skills, insights, intelligence and perspectives to stay effective over the long-term. Such is the nature of ethical leadership, which requires a steadfast focus on a core set of ethical principles and values that guide a leader's judgment, ensuring consistency over the long-term. These are also the fundamental aspects of any leader's long-term credibility as well, and their ability to transform their enterprises over the long-term as well (John, 2005). Ethical leaders often resonate with credibility and the willingness to also change quickly in response to the needs of their organizations, employees, stakeholders and customers.

The purpose of this analysis is to define what an ethical leader is, how managers can progress to being more ethical in their leadership style, and how Jeff Immelt, CEO of general Electric,…… [Read More]

Improving Organizational Effectiveness Through Transformational

Words: 1298 Length: 4 Pages Document Type: Book Report Paper #: 40706247

Some people also call this kind of leadership servant leadership, because of the way the leader makes himself more equal with the followers. Transactional leadership is more about giving orders that are expected to be followed, where transformational leadership is more about discussing ideas and finding ways that the organization can be changed for the better (ass & Avolio, 1994). There are times when transactional leadership is better, of course, depending on the type of organization. For most organizations, though, transformational leadership is the right way to go.

Another thing that ass and Avolio (1994) point out is that leaders who focus on transformational leadership keep their followers for a much longer period of time. They are in the game for the long-term, and because of that they are committed to changing the organization for the better overall. There may be some growing pains, but the level of trust that…… [Read More]

CEO as Leader of Ford Motor Company

The leadership of any large, diverse multinational corporation needs to concentrate on a unifying vision coupled with transformational leadership skills to keep the company moving forward over the long-term (Wang, Oh, Courtright, Colbert, 2011). At the Ford Motor Company, the challenge is to not only manage these core aspects of effective leadership, the CEO must also initiate and continually improve innovation over time as the auto industry is going through significant transformation (Luca, McNamara, 2010). The intent of this analysis is to evaluate how effective leaders are in the auto industry in synchronizing these many tasks, in conjunction with serving as a catalyst of effective innovation and transformational growth over time.

Words: 1195 Length: 3 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 61324556

Leadership

Few leaders so overtly and ostentatiously embody the concept of transformational leadership as Sir Richard Branson. Branson heads the mega company Virgin Group. The leader's unconventional personality has been described as vocal and flamboyant, (Management and Leadership of Richard Branson at Virgin Group Ltd., 2010). Although Branson is known for his personal charisma, he does not limit himself to a charismatic leadership style. Charismatic leaders operate on the assumption that Charm and grace are all that is needed to create followers, (Leadership Styles, Changing Minds).

From his charismatic character flows a natural leadership style that encourages personal freedom of choice at the managerial level. Thus, Richard Branson can be best appreciated as a transformational leader, and one who has extraordinary vision. Transformational leadership is characterized by the empowerment of workers to make decisions that promote organizational goals, visions, and values. Transformational leaders aim to achieve an articulated vision of…… [Read More]

alt Disney was a creative man who built an empire around his vision. Love or hate his product, he created a distinct, family-focused 'Disney style' of entertainment. Before alt Disney, cartoons were regarded as largely derivative forms of entertainment, as a warm-up to the feature film. Disney placed cartoons front and center of the American entertainment experience during a time when movies were one of the central ways in which Americans came together to enjoy a commonly-enjoyed fantasy. He later parlayed this success into television, and even into theme parks which brought the cartoon experience to life. Disney was able to create his cutting-edge vision through near obsessive control of his product and tunnel-vision focus upon his goals. He was a transformative leader, inspiring his subordinates with…… [Read More]

Role of a Project Leader

This part-time project manager was being asked to fulfill several different roles in the organization concurrently. It is commonly known that for a project to stand a high probability of success, it requires a dedicated project manager (Schulz, 2000).

A second aspect of why this project failed was the lack of focus on goals, objectives and how the project fit into the overarching objectives of the company. The project goals drifted and often didn't have a clear focus on deliverables and quantified performance. The lack of a very clear, well defined mission for a project will often lead to its failure and confusion over status and deliverables (Puccinelli, 1999). This is exactly what happened on this project. Finally the leader did not provide enough visibility into hwo the project on a global level was progressing.

Opportunities Faced by Leaders, Society and Organizations

Problems and opportunities facing leaders, communities and organization are always a cause of debate in the society. They can arise in many different ways and exist in many forms and society finds it's our way of meeting these challenges and responding to such opportunities. The articles chosen for this paper focus primarily on the issue of rising tuition costs and it's impact on college enrollment and this topic is chosen because it affects leaders, communities and organizations alike.

The first article in this connection is written by Donald Heller. The article explains how rising costs impact enrollment in colleges and universities. The author found that all things being equal, rising tuition costs will lead to lower enrollment. A decline in enrollment is however a subjective issue dependent on some other factors including type of institution. For example it has been found the community…… [Read More]

Leadership a Leader Is Who

Words: 1633 Length: 5 Pages Document Type: Term Paper Paper #: 88948336

Transformational leaders have the innate ability to motivate their team members by the vision of what they are trying to accomplish together (Hur, van den Berg, Wilderom, 591). Leaders at this level also show through personal effort why sacrificing for a goal is worth it (Pryor, Oyler, Humphreys, Toombs, 18). Contrasting my own leadership style, I have learned that being able to provide subordinates with an opportunity to take on a task their own way, master it, and find purpose in it is a major step in the right direction. The concepts of autonomy, mastery and purpose as the core of motivation is what I am working to achieve today as a leader. I am also on the journey to being a better leader on this dimension as well, working to show that sacrificing for a long-term goal is worth it.

Leader Critique

A Critique of the Leadership Style of Sir Richard Branson

Sir Richard Branson makes an excellent example of an interesting leader to study. Branson's parents provided a relatively unique upbringing and raised him to be as independent as possible. For example, his mother was a stewardess for an airline and also a performer who would create challenging games for her children to play. She would do things like drop off a young Richard Branson in a field close to their hose and make him find his own way home. Another example is that she would tell him to ride his bike to the next town over and then find his way home again (Finkle, 2011). His parents also preached the values of free thought and encouraged him to make his own opinions about life but distilled the importance of hard work as a way to…… [Read More]

Words: 1958 Length: 5 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 48497280

urgent need for leaders in today's business environment to effectively manage organizational change in order to keep up with the competition and create greater value for their organizations. Very often, they have to come up with new strategies and business models to improve products and services. It is, therefore, imperative for them to understand various models of organizational change to determine which will work well for their organizations and which will give the desired results. This text takes a look at four models of organizational change: the Expanded Change Model, the Seven S-Action Word Model, the People Mover Change Model and a model that focuses on environmental influences. It establishes why the People Mover Change Model is the best among the three, and also identifies the key differentiators.

Good and Bad Leader

Bad Leader

Compare and contrast the trait and behavioral approach to leadership, discuss which approach is more effective and explain your reasoning. Lastly, identify and describe a leader who uses the approach you chose as more effective and evaluate why he/she is an effective leader

The trait approach to leadership encompasses the conception that there are particular virtues a leader must have. This leadership theory accentuates that there is a particular set of basic personality indicators that set leaders apart from followers. On the other hand, the behavioral approach to leadership takes into account a set of actions that any leader ought to undertake in relation to an organizational circumstance. In comparing these two leadership approaches, the fundamental similarity is that both approaches lay emphasis that there are distinguishable actions that any leader ought to be capable to undertake in any given circumstance. Behaviorism is similar to the trait approach…… [Read More]

While the logistics, supply chain execution, management and optimization along with exceptional control over pricing is what Wal-Mart is known for today, it was Sam Walton who initially defined the supply base as strategic partners (Friedricks, 1995). Being partners, the concept of collaborative supply chain planning and execution could easily drive greater value and lower cost for the core Wal-Mart customer base, the Price Value Shopper (Blanchard, Comm, 2008). According to Wal-Mart executives, Sam Walton believed heavily in the vision and mission of his stores as being the necessary foundation for America's middle class to make ends meet (amanathan, Gunasekaran, Subramanian, 2011). His focus on managing price as aggressively as he could, in collaboration with suppliers, set a new foundation for low-price retailing while also creating a foundation for middle class families to afford to live within their means (Blanchard, Comm, 2008). This is one of the core precepts of…… [Read More]

Another key to success can be seen when, again through Tom Peters, we learn of the nine key areas of leadership. Tom espouses those nine traits as; being ethical, displaying courage and honesty, having a vision, teaching others those characteristics and values to which the leader holds true, have high expectations of those which are put into leadership capacities, and understanding those people with which the leader(s) comes in contact with.

These traits and capabilities are ones for which I strive, and in so doing, am able to see the value that they can offer me in my quest to become a great and efficient leader.

By 'having a vision' and endowing that vision to those who I wish to lead, I should find it much easier to have them follow my track. If my employees or co-workers see that I am ethical and that I display courage and honesty,…… [Read More]

He used his skills of persuasion to convince U.S. Commander-in-Chief Jack Pershing that his ideas for a U.S. Air Force deserved attention. Mitchell then personally trained and organized the first pilots of the newly created air force, earning him the title as its "father." In addition, during the St. Mihiel offensive in 1918, he led the largest air fleet of the time, consisting of nearly 1500 allied aircraft. Perhaps most importantly, he envisioned the need for a progressively more independent air force, and he made no secret of his commitment to enacting this expectation. Unfortunately, in the process, he alienated many higher-ups in the army and the navy, making his leadership style one of questionable controversy rather than blind admiration.

Mitchell's difficulties with the military, which ultimately led to his court martial, were not, however, a result of poor leadership on the part of Mitchell, but rather a result of…… [Read More]

Use of Transformational Leadership Traits in Emergency Service Oversight

In the context of emergency service oversight, each of the four components of transformational leadership are critical in that each much be orchestrated with the other to ensure accurate, responsive and thorough support. The emergency service oversight areas of training and development, leadership and measuring results, all must resonate with these core values if employees and associates are to see value in their contributions. In emergency oversight, employees must see value in their contribution and take a very high level of task ownership in their jobs.

Transformational Leadership: The Nature vs. Nurture Debate

Spain's famous football club, eal Madrid, has a history of changing managers as often as players change their socks (Clegg, 2010). The hope that this pattern would end with the hiring of the Portuguese manager, Jose Mourinho, was well deserved, given the great deal of respect he has earned among footballers across Europe and in the Americas. Aside from being exacting and detail oriented, Mourinho is the epitome of a transformational leader. Many experts believed that Mourinho would be the best person for reining in the massive millionaire egos on the team, thereby improving the team's performance on and off the field. Leadership experts equated the challenges Mourinho was facing with those any executive would face in a boardroom.

According to Clegg (2010), Mourinho is more manager than leader…… [Read More]

Today's organization face an external political environment that is marked by unprecedented levels of bipolarization that have arguably reached new heights relative to any time in recent history. Although most organizations will not experience the same levels of bipolarization internally, at least on the surface or overt political disagreements, due to the fact that most organizations have at least a minimal level of professionalism that prohibits discussions or arguments about personal beliefs that are not related in somehow to the organization, its strategy, or its operations. However, at the same time, there are still undoubtedly disagreements that manifest within a professional organizational setting that are somehow grounded in an individual's personal worldview. Furthermore, it is often the case that the power and politics that are in play internally in any organization often mirror those found in the macro external environment.

personal philosophy of leadership. Address what role you feel a health care leader should play, what leadership theory they should follow, and why leaders should follow that theory.

My personal philosophy of leadership is that leaders need to remain strong and focused, decisive and relatively uninfluenced by their own or others' emotions. In healthcare, it is particularly important to apply evidence-based practice and rational thought to decisions, rather than rely on charismatic leaders to become figureheads in an organization or healthcare team. Increasingly, healthcare leaders rely on collaborative work environments where leadership philosophies that are collaborative and democratic prove most successful (Chriem, et al., 2013). Collaborative work environments occasionally rely on having a formal leader, but increasingly we are encountering shared power situations in which there is no one clear leader and in which each person's contributions are recognized as equal. This is true in some, but not all, healthcare…… [Read More]

The style of leadership that best describes me is known as the dominance style. I focus really intently on goals that I seek to accomplish, and I largely work at them until they are accomplished in as little time as possible. As such, I actually prefer to be the one who is in charge of making decisions and actuating others to accomplish objectives. Once I have an objective, my principle concern is the proverbial bottom-line or achieving that objective with efficiency. I have realized that power is one of the ways in which dominance leaders are able to assert themselves over others to help fulfill the needs of an organization.

Characteristics of Leaders

There are several characteristics that successful leaders are considered to have. Most theories on leadership state that such traits refer to integrity, self-esteem, confidence, empathy, organizational skills, good judgment, initiative, courage, endurance, they are proactive, they have visionary skills, communication skills, and others. There are numerous combinations of skills that characterize the great leaders of the world.

However, there are individuals that posses such skills, but that do not become leaders. Certain theories consider that leadership is an innate skill that cannot be developed. In the case of individuals that have such skills but do not become leaders, this situation can be attributed to the fact that they lack the desire to lead. They are not interested in becoming an example for others, or in managing groups or teams.

The good health of the organization depends greatly on the relationship between leaders and employees. However, the relationship that exists between organizational leaders and employees are failing at a high rate in today's workplaces and the reasons for this are not clear.

Organizational Behavior

Discuss Leader eward and Leader Punishing Behavior

One of the most fundamental roles of managers (leaders) is increasing the productivity of their employees. In so doing, leaders exhibit two forms of behaviors; transformational and transactional behaviors. Transformational behaviors put emphasis on the development of subordinates' abilities, the enhancement of good social relations, and the alignment of employees' personal goals with the organization's vision. Transactional behaviors, on the other hand, are more of an exchange mechanism. The supervisor, in this case, administers punishments and rewards to his or her employees in exchange for their productivity and effort (Organ, Podsakoff, & Mackenzie, 2006). Leader reward and leader punishment behaviors, which form the subject matter of this text, constitute the forms of transactional leadership behaviors.

There are two types of punishment and reward behaviors; contingent, and non-contingent behaviors. This gives rise to the four types of transactional behaviors; "contingent reward/punishment and…… [Read More]

). Concomitantly, many higher educational institutions may lack the resources needed because of the aforementioned dwindling state budgets and overall shaky national economy, as well as skyrocketing costs of administration.

Not surprisingly, these trends have combined to make the accountability of educational leaders a timely issue, but one that remains under-studied. In this regard, these authors cite internal and external political pressures that are calling for such accountability concerning educational leadership's effectiveness as well as organizational-institutional efficacy (Armstrong et al.). Based on their review, Armstrong and his colleague conclude that the most critical issue facing departmental chairs is the disintegration of trust in leadership in higher education. ebuilding and fostering trust is an essential component of effective leadership, and it appears that the 360-degree feedback model can provide educators at all levels with a framework in which to overcome such obstacles in this important area (Armstrong et al.).
