Assignment 1 – Leadership Influences – Skills, Styles, & Experiences
Leadership is a topic that has pondered the hearts of professionals, academics, and individuals for centuries. Throughout history, leaders can be identified throughout the world for his or her actions, behaviors, and influences on countries, nations, organizations, and many others environments. There is ample research about traditional (Links to an external site.) and modern leadership theories (Links to an external site.), skills and traits. The purpose of this assignment is to provide you with the opportunity to review a thought provoking article in regards to “Rethinking Leadership” (Links to an external site.). Take a moment to review Raelin (2015) article and two additional sources of your choice in regards to a different perspective of leadership and evaluate the following questions within a two-three page paper:
- What is traditional Leader-Follower Theory? What does Raelin (2015) mean by “in fast moving business environments, we can’t keep dampening the energy and creativity of those condemned to follower status,”?
- Evaluate the statement made by Sutter as cited by Raelin (2015) “trying to impose a command-and-control structure doesn’t work…you can’t expect to be able to scale, transform and win if you’re not creating agile models. If it’s top-down, it moves too slowly.” What are your thoughts in regards to this statement?
- Reflect and discuss your thoughts in regards to what Raelin (2015) suggested by the following statement,”We need to study instances of failure, dissonance, crisis and obstruction in the workplace — or even surprises that spur creativity.” How could this help management and leadership within the workplace?
So, you will need to write a 750 word paper containing a minimum of two sources. Be sure to use proper citations and APA formatting in your assignment.
