Leadership, the Chief Executive and the Senior Executive Team
Usually an organisation has a formal leader who is ‘in charge’ and is held responsible for the success and failure of the organised entity.
Often these leaders have reporting to them a group of senior executives with individual responsibility for specific sections, or specialised organisational units, or specific geographies.
Ideally this top group of leaders functions as a Senior Executive Team, with the Chief Executive as its leader.
I attach specific meaning to the term ‘TEAM’ and to the term “LEADER’. These meanings ideally apply to teams and their leaders at all levels.

Leadership System and Management Structure
In addition, the leadership style developed and promoted by the chief executive and the leadership team is ideally designed to devolve decision making to all levels of the organisation.
Specific responsibility and accountability is defined and clearly understood as part of a formal management structure, but there is also a collective accountability and a set of shared goals that ensure that all parts of the organisation work together.
The Values the Organisation lives by
Great organisation have developed, communicated and adopted a clearly expressed set of values, which become an important part of its ‘persona’ and are vital to its reputation. Ideally, these values are developed and maintained in consultation with all stakeholder groups and are discussed with all potential and new employees as part of the induction process.
Obviously, the written values must be reflected in the actual behaviour of executives and all leaders, who demonstrate and teach the spirit of these values through their personal …show more content…
Investment plans need to reflect both the spirit and the letter of the laws of the society in which the organisation lives and works, and should be seen to support the stated opjectives of governments.

(Hill, C.V.L, & Jones, G.R., 2014) Question #2 Based on our reading material for this week the three most common values a manager should set up in their organization are; 1) Values that promote a certain bias for action 2) Values are created from an organization's mission statement 3) Values themselves is the how to an organization is going to perform it's daily operation (Hill, C.V.L, & Jones, G.R., 2014) In
Moreover, the performing phase taken at face value goes much further than to imply that a team is simply just playing the game. Any individual on a team can perform, but the success of a team is determined by its ability to perform efficiently as a group. This idea seemed to form the basic message that the “Building a Cohesive Team” video was attempted to construe. Further, the author of that video also stressed the importance of competent leadership and the role it serves in forming an effective and cohesive team. With respect to a sports team, leadership roles are quite diverse, albeit the head coach remains at the top of the chain.
INTRODUCTION The Prophet of Management Mary Parker Follett defines management as “the art of getting things done through the efforts of other people. She emphasize on the importance of the team work that done with the lead of the manager. Also, she defines the principles of management as the activities that “plan, organize, and control the operations of the basic elements of people, methods, materials, money, machines and markets, providing coordination and direction, and giving leadership to human efforts, so as to achieve the goals. A team is a group of people working together to achieve the team’s goal. Teams are different than other types of groups in that members are focused on a specific goal or product.
If employees are not familiar with the company’s goals and what the company is expect from them they won’t be able to perform good. Successful organizational culture requires a team work. Johnson should establish the espoused values of the company. These are the stated values and norms that are preferred by the company (Kreitner, 2013, p.63). Johnson should set the basic assumption which values employees (Kreitner, 2013, p.65).
INTRODUCTION The word ‘team’ can be defined as a group of people working together towards a common goal. A team also generally is known as a group of people with different skills and different tasks, who works together on a common project, services, or goal. Then, the important thing in teamwork is ‘collaboration’, which is the act of working effectively with others to achieve a common goal. Collaboration acts as the lifeblood in the team, even the team is not large enough, but the collaboration is required.
Organizational leadership is typically more concerned with the big picture, such as strategy and planning. Organizational leadership occurs when at least one levelof subordinates interferes to reach the lowest level of subordinates who are affected by the task. Organizational leadership, on the other hand, requires an understanding of theArmy’s bureaucracy and how to navigate it effectively. Leaders must also be able to develop relationships with key stakeholders within the organization and build consensusaround a shared vision. Ultimately, the leaders need to be able to inspire those around them to achieve greatness.
A team of people who all have the same skillset, For example a team of Electricians on a building site as they are all doing the same work with the same skills Cross-Functional Team: A team that have members with different jobs/expertise. An example would be a soccer team, the goalkeepers job is the stop the opposition from scoring whereas the strikers job is to try and score. Self-Directed Team: A team that doesn’t necessarily require a leader as the members of the team have been working together for a long time and they understand their colleagues roles.
We can have all the good intentions we want but in the end, people judge you by your actions. What are you actually investing your time in determines what your values are? If I say I want to lose weight but never change my eating habits and actually not just pass by the gym on the way to Kristy Kreme donuts then I really can't expect to lose weight.

Introduction Team leadership encompasses many things. It may seem like a simple and small task, but in a real sense, it is complex and comes with responsibilities, and commonly, it determines the success of any team or a group. However, the value of teamwork should not be overemphasized considering that all organizations need individuals and personnel who are willing to share ideas, listen to others and contribute to the problem solving of any given group or a company. Team leaders should have the ability, authority, and power to analyze data and information with a team of people with a common aim and objective as well as issues. The leader should understand the dynamic patterns, the connections and relations between paramount factors in these objectives, aims and issues that help in the analysis process.
It is important that you develop an awareness of what you value, as these values will be important in forming a better relationship with co–workers. Knowing your own values can help you work effectively to resolve conflicts and support the organization’s philosophy of care appropriately. Wherever our values come from, they make us the unique person we are today. In this book the authors and Admiral
