My group showed that we were ethical because our standards on this project were high due to the fact that we all wanted to receive a high grade on the project, we also all shared the same value of doing well on the project therefore, we made sure our work conveyed cohesion and collaborative efforts resulting in the full understanding of our topic. Lastly, the final component of the Relational Leadership model is process oriented. Under this component I believe my group lacked this aspect the most, at times it was extremely difficult to work together to fulfill the goal of the group. Although we all had the same goal to convey to the best of our abilities the problem of structural racism along with receiving a good grade on it somehow we lost sight of how to execute the project so we can all receive a good grade as well as raise awareness on the
According to Porter (2008), a strategy should create a long-term sustainable competitive advantage for a company. This can either be achieved by performing similar activities better than rivals meaning to have a higher operational effectiveness – or to have a unique and valuable position with a consistent fit among a company’s activities and some trade-offs. Bark & Co.’s strategic positioning can therefore be described as a highly needs-based one due to the fact that the company focuses on meeting the needs of a particular group of customers and therefore also creates a fit among all activities. Whether this strategy will lead to a sustainable competitive advantage and what Bark & Co. needs to consider in order to operate successfully in the Pet Product Industry will be evaluated in the following chapters of this
“Leadership at one time meant muscles; but today it means getting along with people” Mahatma Gandhi Leadership today is interactive. Teams are core to organizational success and researchers have explored how team leaders and team leadership can help team in achieving this success. Though considerable attention is given to formal leaders, it is important to understand the functional view of team leadership. The sources of leadership can be conceptualized along the structural dimensions of locus of leadership and formality of leadership. (Morgeson et al.
The leader should have a clear vision that is capable of being proclaimed effortlessly. This enables them to be able to see into the future, by having a clear direction and compelling objectives of what they want to achieve. With a clear vision a person turns into an exceptional individual that other people trust and follow. This transforms “transactional manager” into a “transformational leader” (Tracy’s blog). Phenomenal leaders are able to go through the emotions of their employees, while managing to get the tasks performed, As articulated by different writers that a vision should be simple, meaningful and a reality (Bennis and Nanus, 1985; Kantabutra, 2009; Kotter, 1996; Kouzes and Posner, 1995; Nanus, 1992; Tichy and Devanna, 1986).
(Sikandar Hayyat Malik,2013)“To increase personal pay-offs to subordinates for work-goal attainment and make the path to these pay-offs easier to travel by clarifying it, reducing road blocks and pitfalls, and increasing the opportunities for personal satisfaction en route”(House cited in Robert P.Vecchio et al 2008) Leaders that are using path-goal theory may has many ways to approach or used it therefore when these theory is used in the appropriate way it will have the most efficiency and effectiveness results. Like What Bill Bradley say “Leadership is unlocking people’s potential to become
It has become increasingly apparent that in order to be successful in a career, an individual must foster the ability to be a leader. Employers have become increasingly concerned with an applicant's experience and capability of exemplifying great leadership traits and skills. I believe having an individual who is a proven leader collaborating on your organization’s or research lab’s team can increase efficiency and ultimately output exceeding results. However, working on team projects does not imply that every individual must manage and take control of a situation and mitigate conflicts amongst team members. Successful teams are able to utilize a group of competent leaders to improve overall flow and production.
Personal Success Personally, I believe that all successful individuals share similar characteristics and qualities. What they choose to value and prioritize before others is a clear reflection of who they may be. For instance someone who values efficiency, will often complete tasks as quickly as possible. A successful person often follows a code of conduct that they have developed over their life. More commonly known as morals, they are a excellent representation of an individual 's experiences.
‘Business analysts have adapt to the new processes and understand not just the template of the artefacts that needs to be produced (Epics and User Stories) but the spirit of the agile methodology” (Salo, 2004, p. 310). (Salo, 2004) states that the nature of agile projects places a tremendous amount of responsibility and accountability on these analysts and for analyst to understand the scope of a project, they need to consider two aspects: breadth and depth but however it is crucial to understand the breadth of that which is to be delivered as it helps teams understand the long term goals and vision and this in turn helps with the release planning and breaking
Hence, the need for the two parties to agree and communicate effectively at every stage of project implementation. 6) A clear view of what success looks like: All the relevant stakeholders of a project must have a clear definition of success for their project. The project team and all stakeholders must have a full understanding of what they need to achieve and how success of their efforts is measured. Having a clear view of what you consider success in your project helps you define your activities more clearly and establish a clear route on how you will succeed in your project. 7) Consistency, compatibility and achievability of all component parts: A typical project constitute a variety of components that need to be consistent, compatible and achievable; and should all be geared towards the success of the project.
The success of any organization in the current competitive world is directly linked to how well and consistently the organization performs, and the style of leadership plays a significant role in this performance (Ojokuku, Odetayo & Sajuyigbe, 2012). With this perspective, leadership can be defined as the capability of an individual to persuade and inspire others so that they contribute towards effectiveness and success of the organization (Yukl & Becker, 2006). Various leadership styles and their influence on organizational success have been advanced and studied (Nanjundeswaraswamy & Swamy, 2014). One such style is the transformational leadership style, which according to Givens (2008), acts as a driving force for organizational performance and innovation. Besides, he adds, transformational leadership enhances employee job satisfaction as the transformational leader interacts with subordinates to motivate them to achieve maximum output in their work responsibilities (Jalal, Khawaja, Kamariah, Fosa, Muhd & Ahmad, 2012).
