May 1st, 2014 11:30 AM All is well in Organizational Behavior... 5. Until 6. A)Hold Tight. There is strength in numbers and you are secure in the classroom B) Exit the classroom and head for the nearest exit. Hopefully, zombies have not entered the JSOM yet C) Break a window and jump out. The quicker you are outside the better. 7. A) Bad move, Zombies were already in the building. You boarded yourselves in but the zombies came through the vents. Your team has joined the ranks of the undead. B) Zombies were already in the building but you were able to outrun them and get to the stairs. Good job! You made it outside and your team is intact. C) Getting outside quickly was a smart idea. Sadly, out of your 7 team members, 2 fell to their death. You are safe for now 8. A)Listen to President Daniels. Head to the Administration building B) Disband and run for your lives. You are all better off on your own at this point C) The Administration building is a good idea but you should gear up first. The activity center has got to have some make shift weapons. You stick together and head there first. 9. a)Listening to the President seemed like a good idea until you ran straight into a zombie mob. The majority of you managed to get away but you had to leave 2 team members behind. b)Zombie survival is a team sport. No one made it off campus. Your entire team is dead. Well, sort of... c)The pathway to the activity center was clear. Your team made it safely and found a few good items to use as weapons. 10. a)Head straight towards the front entrance. Hopefully, the survivors inside are awaiting your arrival b)Head indoors and take the skywalks all the way to the Admin. Building. Its possible the zombies have not made it to the upper levels yet and this may be a safer option. c)Split into two groups. One team takes the skywalks, the other heads towards the front entrance. 11. a)You got to the front entrance no problem. Unfortunately, the doors are locked and there is no one in sight. A few zombies are headed your way. If you have weapons you will be able to fend them off. If not, you lose two team members. b)Apparently, zombies can operate elevators. When you reached the top floors to take the skywalks you were greeted by a zombie mob. You lost most of your team, 4 members to be exact. c)Didnt you learn anything? Zombie survival is a team sport. Your small numbers made you vulnerable. Your whole team perished. 12. a)Scream and shout b)Head back from where you came c)Hold tight, hopefully someone inside will soon open a door. 13. a)Screaming and shouting got the attention of the zombies. Your group was overrun before you could get inside. b)Zombies are everywhere. You managed to fend them off for a few minutes but the inevitable occurred. c)Patience is a virtue. You held tight and tried not to cause attention to yourselves. Eventually, the doors were opened. Apparently, those inside were waiting to make sure you werent attracting zombies to their front steps. Congratulations! You made it out alive and you are one step closer to getting your degree. 14. The Results 15. Autocratic Leadership Definition The leader makes the decision alone without asking for the opinions or suggestions of the employees in the work unit Employees can provide information, but not asked for input on decisions Employees often dont know what decisions need to be made 16. Positive Effects Quick decisions Generally means you have a strong leader who gets things done Preferable for military decisions Allows group members to focus on task at hand Still allows effective decisions 17. Negative Effects Negative worldviews Oppress individuals below them Favor employees for doing things right not the right thing Negatively influence group stability and overall happiness Preferred the least among employees Less creative solutions 18. Autocratic Examples Steve Jobs Decided how decisions were made Set the goals and methods Had team working 90 hours a week (sometimes) and was cutting and cruel The team respected his vision and did things they never thought they could 19. No-So-Good Autocratic Examples Hitler Stalin Gaddafi Remember look out for: HSG Hell, 20. Consultative Leadership The leader presents the problem to individual employees or a group of employees and asks for their opinions, concerns, suggestions, etc. However, the final decision still lies with the leader. Board meetings, Cabinet Meetings for the President are both examples of a consultative style. This leadership style is incredibly common. 21. Positive Effects The most obvious benefit is the presence of multiple opinions and points of view to decide from. The consultative leader is in a position where he does not know the whole situation and he requires the views and opinions of the team on the ground that he may be able to make an informed decision. Research has shown that increasing employees participation in the decision making process increases job satisfaction and their own decision making skills. (textbook 455-457) 22. Negative Effects Managers are more prone to overuse the consultative leadership style due to the perception that everyone is getting a say, despite the possibility for a large amount of unnecessary bureaucracy being formed. 23. Consultative Examples Jeff Bezos Bezos believes that without freedom to state opinions and freedom to dispute, there is no innovation. Bezos encourages participation and expression within his meetings, and expects anyone who disagrees to express their feelings vehemently and relentlessly, even if the effort is tiring and seemingly fruitless. 24. Facilitative Leadership Facilitative Leadership is very similar to consultative. However, there are a few key differences. Ultimate authority changes Equal opinion Open suggestions and constructive feedback 25. Facilitative Example Miracle 26. Delegative Leadership A leader who gives their employees the reigns to make their own decisions for assigned tasks with some boundaries The leader may provide necessary resources. Minimal supervision The chill approach 27. Positive Effects Under the right circumstances, employees who were given great leeway would boost their morale and increase productivity. Ultimately, it would also strengthen the employees management and leadership skills. Example: Charles Manson, the cult leader and pimp 28. When applying that trust to the wrong employees, it could lead to a lack of direction, and motivation. Therefore, missing those deadlines. Example: Nursing Negative Effects 29. Delegative Leadership Summary: Minimal supervision Laissez-faire Hands-off Requires a lot of trust 30. Conclusion As teamV5 has presented, leadership comes varies forms with their own advantages and disadvantages. Thus, we can use these varies forms of leadership to help us in our professional and daily lives. However, in each of these leadership styles exists: Vision Virtue Value Veracity Valor 31.
