Transcript of Task vs Social Leadership

Task Leadership
Goal oriented leadership that sets standards, organizes work, and focuses attention on goals.
Being a Task Leader
A task leader focuses on accomplishments. This leader assesses the team's accomplishments and judges the success of a project based on how close they are to reaching the specified goal. A task leader tends to be influential, mature, well-educated, good at problem solving, and communicating
Behaviors of a Task Leader
A task leader is someone that tells you exactly how something needs to be done. The leader makes all of the important decisions without explaining their reasoning for fear of wasting time that could be spent achieving goals. A task leader sets goals, plans, establishes standards, and creates a communication network.
Social Leadership
Social leadership is group-oriented leadership that builds teamwork, mediates conflict, and offers support.
Being a Social Leader
The social leader values individual accomplishments, personal development, and employee satisfaction.
Social Leader Behaviors
A social leader recognizes the importance of discussing a topic or plan with the employees before implementing it, reducing conflict, and boosting morale. This type of leader is also genuine, caring, approachable, and available.
Studies show that leaders that exercise social leadership are more effective than those that are task leaders.
The Best Approach
The best type of leader combines both task leadership and social leadership. The combined approach results in an efficient and productive team. Setting tasks helps everyone stay on track and building a rapport with the employees encourages them to work hard and contribute. This results in the social leader supporting the task leader.
