Distinguishing Manager-ship from Leadership 5

The Place of Leadership Can Anyone Be a Leader?  Some people don’t have what it takes to be a leader  Some people are more motivated to lead than others Is Leadership Always Necessary?  Some people don’t need leaders  Leaders need to be aware of followers’ needs 6

Early Leadership Theories Trait Theories (1920s–30s)  Research that focused on identifying personal characteristics that differentiated leaders from non-leaders was unsuccessful  Later research on the leadership process identified seven traits associated with successful leadership:  Drive, the desire to lead, honesty and integrity, self-confidence, intelligence, job-relevant knowledge, and extraversion 7

Exhibit 12.2 Seven Traits Associated with Leadership 8

Behavioral Theories University of Iowa Studies (Kurt Lewin)  Identified three leadership styles:  Autocratic style: centralized authority, low participation  Democratic style: involvement, high participation, feedback  Laissez-faire style: hands-off management  Research findings: mixed results  No specific style was consistently better for producing better performance  Employees were more satisfied under a democratic leader than an autocratic leader 9

Behavioral Theories (cont’d) Ohio State Studies  Identified two dimensions of leader behaviour  Initiating structure: the role of the leader in defining his or her role and the roles of group members  Consideration: the leader’s mutual trust and respect for group members’ ideas and feelings  Research findings: mixed results  High-high leaders generally, but not always, achieved high group task performance and satisfaction  Evidence indicated that situational factors appeared to strongly influence leadership effectiveness 10

Behavioral Theories (cont’d) University of Michigan Studies  Identified two dimensions of leader behavior  Employee oriented: emphasizing personal relationships  Production oriented: emphasizing task accomplishment  Research findings:  Leaders who are employee oriented are strongly associated with high group productivity and high job satisfaction 11

Contingency Theories of Leadership The Fiedler Model  Effective group performance depends upon the match between the leader’s style of interacting with followers and the degree to which the situation allows the leader to control and influence  Assumptions:  Different situations require different leadership styles  Leaders do not readily change leadership styles  Matching the leader to the situation or changing the situation to make it favourable to the leader is required 15

Contingency Theories of Leadership (cont’d) The Fiedler Model (cont’d)  Least-preferred co-worker (LPC) questionnaire  Determines leadership style by measuring responses to 18 pairs of contrasting adjectives  High score: a relationship-oriented leadership style  Low score: a task-oriented leadership style  Situational factors in matching leader to the situation:  Leader-member relations  Task structure  Position power 16

Contingency Theories… (cont’d) Hersey and Blanchard’s Situational Leadership Theory (SLT)  Successful leadership is achieved by selecting a leadership style that matches the level of the followers’ readiness  Acceptance: do followers accept or reject a leader?  Readiness: do followers have the ability and willingness to accomplish a specific task?  Leaders must give up control as followers become more competent 19

Contingency Theories… (cont’d) Hersey and Blanchard’s Situational Leadership Theory (SLT) (cont’d)  Creates four specific leadership styles incorporating Fiedler’s two leadership dimensions:  Telling: high task–low relationship leadership  Selling: high task–high relationship leadership  Participating: low task–high relationship leadership  Delegating: low task–low relationship leadership 20

Contingency Theories… (cont’d) Hersey and Blanchard’s Situational Leadership Theory (SLT) (cont’d)  Identifies four stages of follower readiness:  R1: followers are unable and unwilling  R2: followers are unable but willing  R3: followers are able but unwilling  R4: followers are able and willing 21
