A SCANDALous Approach to Leadership
Transcript of A SCANDALous Approach to Leadership
Fitzgerald Grant III
Rowan ‘Eli’ Pope
Leadership style that can inspire positive changes in those who follow.
Transformational leadership can be seen when "leaders and followers help each other advance to a higher level of moral and motivation."
Through the strength of their vision and personality, transformational leaders are able to inspire followers to change expectations, perceptions, and motivations to work towards common goals
What is SCANDAL?
Leadership in SCANDAL
Characteristics & Components of Transformational Leadership
Characteristics of Bureaucratic Leaders
Weaknesses in Liv's Style
Truth & Reality
transformational leaders may fall in the trap of relying too much on emotion and passion and overlook truth and reality
Over reliance on enthusiasm can restrict the transformational leader's willingness to delve into research, study and logical reasoning to face the often-harsh truth about a situation.
Weaknesses in David's Style
This type of leadership has no space to explore new ways to solve problems and is usually slow paced to ensure adherence to the protocol which is already determined.
This style is much less effective in teams and organizations that rely on flexibility, creativity, or innovation.
Creativity and differences in approach are excluded from this leadership type and discouraged to the point of alienation.
Rowan 'Eli' Pope
Authoritative leaders generally:
• Speak Downward, one-way communication (i.e. leaders to followers, or supervisors to subordinates)
• Controls discussion with followers
• Dominates interaction
Within the Authoritative leadership style, there is also a clear divide between the leader and the followers. The authoritative leader often rewards compliant obedient behavior and punishes erroneous actions.
However, an Authoritative style can be used effectively in situations where the leader is the most knowledgeable member of the group or has access to information that other members of the group do not.
Authoritarian leaders make decisions independently with little or no input from the rest of the group.
Authoritarian leaders uphold stringent control over their followers by directly regulating rules, methodologies, and actions. They provide clear expectations for what needs to be done, when it should be done, and how it should be done.
Characteristics of Authoritative Leaders
Whatever the boss says, goes
Are often too dependent on the leader for inspiration, and are largely unenterprising.
When considering some of the ramifications of the leader’s decisions, Yes-People are hesitant to challenge (and usually do not) the leader's decisions.
Weaknessess in the Gladiator's style
The Yes People
Transformational leaders are generally:
Not only are these leaders concerned and involved in the process; they are also focused on helping every member of the group succeed as well.
Bureaucratic leaders follow rules rigorously, and ensure that their people follow procedures precisely
A style of leadership that emphasizes procedures and historical methods regardless of their usefulness in changing environments. Bureaucratic leaders attempt to solve problems by adding layers of control, and their power comes from controlling the flow of information.
Bureaucratic leaders are generally:
Attentive to Details
Ruling through information
This style of leadership is apparent when the leader establishes a strict set of standards.
The bureaucratic leader believes more in very structured procedures and tends to "not to stray away from the norm." Leaders ensure that all the steps have been followed prior to sending it to the next level of authority.
Weaknesses of Cyrus and Eli's Style
Demoralization & Resentment
This style can be demoralizing, and it can lead to high levels of absenteeism and staff turnover.
People who abuse an authoritarian leadership style are often viewed as bossy, controlling, and dictatorial, which can lead to resentment among group members. In addition, the authoritarian leader can often be a poor listener and uses conflict for individual gain.
refers to a role held by certain individuals in an organization, team, or group.
The Star Followers
These individuals are committed to the leader and the goal (or task) of the organization (or group/team). These conformist individuals do not question the decisions or actions of the leader. Further, yes-people will defend adamantly their leader when faced with opposition from others.
