eadership practices at CMA tend to be inconsistent throughout the company. Vice presidents (VPs) of the four divisions have unique ways of leading their employees; their styles resemble four classic leadership types: transactional, transformational, situational, and charismatic. In addition, staff has observed a lot of conflict between the VPs. You and Jared are meeting now to brainstorm ideas about how to address these issues.
First of all, the lack of leadership at the very top is obvious for sure and you have a LOT of work to do. Of course there is going to be conflict. How can we decide what leadership style is best for our company is the first question we ask as consultants? What is our purpose and mission and where are we at in the development of our company? Certain times in the life of a company dictate certain styles of leadership. For instance, when you start a brand new company you don’t let everyone run around and do whatever they feel is right unless you really know who they are and trust them to do what is right. You have much more control and tell people what to do so it is more top down or directional in nature.
As for conflict, we will discuss that when I have my chat this week. I will show you a process you can use called Managerial Mediation and I have used it quite successfully in the past. When you have a situation under control and people you can trust then perhaps you can use a more situational style or transactional or charismatic if that makes sense. If there is major change necessary, then that is when transformational or charismatic styles make the most sense. Much more to come. Dr. B.
Topic for the PowerPoint this week:
In the course scenario, the following was stated: The CEO has hired you as an external organizational development consultant to help him identify problem areas and to understand where changes should be made within the company. Over the next few weeks, you will also be working with the CEO and managers in all four divisions of the company to help establish these changes. Your various responsibilities will also include talking with employees at each level of the company to get a better understanding about underlying problems.
So far, you are seeing inconsistencies in leadership practices in each of the departments, and you are concerned that while the company is trying to improve its communication protocol, the different leadership styles may be creating confusion. For example, when you talked to one of the production employees, Sonja Diaz, she explained that she had many ideas for helping to streamline the production process, but feels she cannot share them because of the transactional leadership. In the marketing department, one sales rep, Jerry McVie, felt that he was not being challenged with his current goals and is even considering leaving the company to join one of the competitors. Lack of communication between the divisional leaders might also be the cause of conflict between the departments because they operate in silos. This separation between divisions may also be having a negative effect on middle management staffing issues.
Your meetings with managers on conflict resolution are going well. You and Jared the CEO meet after he gets back from his business trip to finish your discussion about leadership styles.
Your CEO Jared says, “Maybe we should talk to the vice presidents and managers about leadership styles. “I was hoping you’d say that,” you say. “I’ll have a presentation that defines a minimum of 4 leadership styles, and then compares and contrasts a minimum of 4 leadership styles in order to discuss strengths/weaknesses and pros/cons of one leadership style over another. Please have this ready for meetings next week. Thanks.”
