Situational Leadership Theory and Organizational Leadership
- Field: English
As the new top-level executive of a medium-sized corporation, you have noticed that the leadership culture in the organization has been ineffective, which has lowered employee morale. To change the leadership culture you have decided to discuss this issue with all the managers and supervisors in the organization. Prior to meeting with all the managers and supervisors, you have decided that you need to develop a how-to guide on effective leadership.
In a four-page paper (excluding the title and references pages), explain why situational leadership theory is useful and relevant in developing an effective leadership culture. Describe the three theories of situational leadership and what you consider to be the strengths and weaknesses of each theory when leading staff in the organizational environment. The written assignment should include at least three scholarly sources, in addition to the text, and be formatted according to APA style as outlined in the Ashford Writing Center (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site..
