Identifying Leadership Approaches
Learning more about your own leadership preferences will likely help you identify others’ leadership styles as well. Given your understanding of the leadership approaches presented in the first eleven chapters of the text, you can now create a case study yourself analyzing a leader’s response to a situation that you observed in your setting. While you might lean towards identifying a leader with an approach similar to your preferences, creating a case study that focuses on a different leadership style would be most beneficial for your learning.
First you should consider a scenario where you have the necessary information to describe the situation with enough information to resemble the case studies in our text. You do not need to know every aspect of the case you are presenting, nor do you need to interview the leader you will be using for this case study. You will be creating an anonymized description of the leader, the environment, and the focus for your case study, so you may need to infer some of the information to complete the study description.
The intent of this assessment is for you to analyze how a leader in your organization demonstrated one of the approaches discussed thus far in the course. My hope is that you will use this opportunity to practice applying the concepts presented in Chapters 1-11, considering the perspectives of the followers, and developing questions that could help your reader better understand the leadership approach after reflecting on your case study
nn the opening, state the leadership approach or style the case study aligns with for the reader (e.g. LMX, Situational, Behavioral, etc).
Then provide a brief description of the organization, including the size and business conducted. When noting the position of the leader be sure to include the approximate number of direct reports and a general overview of the environment, such as the positive or negative perceptions held by the followers.
Describe the work conducted by the leader and followers, including those who report directly to the leader. Discuss the area of concern or the conflict and the perception of the followers relative to their interactions with the area of concern.
