The biggest fact that I have learned in this report is that no effective leader follows just one leadership style and multiple leadership styles must be interlinked together depending on the task or objective. Furthermore, during this report I have learned that any good manager is not just a manager but a leader too. According to Kotterman (2006), a well-balanced organisation should have a mix of both managers and leaders to thrive and succeed. In my experience in working under many supervisors I have noticed that the good supervisor keeps criticism to a minimum and always motivates the team to strive in a task. A good supervisor also has a great relationship with the team I worked with.

According to Willink & Babin (2015), “A leader must exercise extreme ownership. Simultaneously, that leader must employ decentralized command” (p. 275). This quote underlines that as leader you must take responsibility for everything you and your men do and fail to do.
The Similarity is that people lost confidence in banking because many banks had to close in the depression, and some had to close because of the recession in 2008 as well. In both situation you could see the terrible conditions of the economy because of rising unemployment rates. In 2008, the unemployment rate had reached 8.1 percent, but during the time of the depression it reached 25 percent (State). Both had bad unemployment rates, but you can also see that the recent recession was not nearly as severe as the depression. Government put policies and programs into place to prevent a depression from happening so severely again which is evident in the unemployment
Contingency theories put forth the idea that the success of a leader hinges on the specific situation at hand. A situation can be proven effective based on the leader or the leadership style attached. The factors that would determine this would include the task, the personality of the leader and the composition of the group that is meant to be led. Its basic assumption is that leadership-success or failure – is situational. There are a number of sub-theories that fall under the general contingency umbrella.
Children at risk of dying every year due to zinc deficiency are about 450,000.

Introduction Australia’s oldest and one of the largest consumer electronics retailer Dick Smith Holdings (DSH) collapsed in January 2016 when its share price fell over 84% in less than 4 months. Its demise came as a shock to the industry and left more than 3000 employees jobless after closing down 393 stores in Australia and New Zealand.
