JLBC MAIN POINT 1: TASK BEHAVIORS


JLBC: Leadership

There are no right or wrong answers to the questions. I am simply interested in what you have to say.

JLBC MAIN POINT 1: TASK BEHAVIORS

Some leadership styles focus on the leader’s use of resources to be effective. Resource decisions are typically based on a wide range of factors that include the type of task, the quality of the decision, and follower considerations that have a level of commitment. Task behaviors involve actions that relate to how a job or project gets done directly in terms of organization of work, scheduling of work, and who will perform individual tasks.

JLBC MAIN POINT 2: RELATIONSHIP BEHAVIORS

While some leadership styles focus on resources, other classes focus on the exchange between leaders and followers. The leader motivates followers to accomplish the team’s goals, typically trading leader-initiated styles, like guidance and support, for follower-induced kinds, like productivity and satisfaction. Relationship behaviors include building morale, respect, trust, and fellowship between leaders and followers.

Question: Think of a time when a leader had to be directive. In other words, the leader gives someone specific instructions about a task. Where would you place this on the board? Why?

Question: Now, think of a time when a leader was supportive. In other words, the leader gave the goal but left the tasks to reach this goal to the followers. Where would you place this on the board? Why?
