    • performance-to-outcome probabilities, and

    • assigned valences or values to outcome.

The path goal theory1

The Path-Goal Theory

  • Expectancy -If I study for 12 hours, what is the probability I will get an A on the exam?

  • Performance-to-outcome probabilities - If I get an A on the final, what is the probability of getting an A in the course?

  • Assigned valences or values to outcome - How much do I value a higher GPA

Contingency model situational late 1960s fiedler

Contingency Model-Situational (late 1960s-Fiedler)

  • Three major situational variables:

    • Leader-member relations

    • Task structure

    • Position power

  • Task oriented leaders tend to perform best in group situations that are either very favorable or very unfavorable to the leader

  • Relationship oriented leaders tend to perform best in situations that are intermediate in favorableness

3 d management style theory situational 1970s william reddin

3-D Management Style Theory-Situational (1970s-William Reddin)

  • The effectiveness of leaders depends on how appropriate their leadership style is to the situation in which they operate

  • A variety of styles can be effective or ineffective depending on the situation

Mgto234 7

  • The third dimension in Reddin’s model is effectiveness

  • Effectiveness/environment – Interaction of the leader’s style with the “place” of work

Situational leadership

Situational Leadership

  • Paul Hersey, Kenneth H. Blanchard, & Dewey E. Johnson, Management of Organizational Behavior: Utilizing Human Resources. (1996.) 7th Edition. Prentice-Hall Publishers, Upper Saddle River, NJ., USA. Page 7.

  • “Management is the process of working with and through individuals and groups and other resources (such as equipment, capital, and technology) to accomplish organizational goals.”

  • “Leadership occurs whenever one person attempts to influence the behavior of an individual or group, regardless of the reason.”

  • “Leadership is a broader concept than management.”

L = f (l, f, s)The leadership process is a function of the leader, the follower, and other situational variables.

  • Variables: Job, Situation, People

Mgto234 7

  • No mention of the type of organization

  • Could be business, educational institution, hospital, political organization, or family

  • Anytime an individual attempts to influence the behavior of someone else that individual is the potential leader-boss, colleague, subordinate, friend, relative, or group

Followers and Followership

Effective followers

Effective followers

  • Effective followers “have the vision to see both the forest and the trees, the social capacity to work well with others, the strength of character to flourish without heroic status, the moral and psychological balance to pursue personal and corporate goals at no cost to either, and, above all, the desire to participate in a team effort for the accomplishment of some greater purpose.”

Characteristics of the Situation



  • Historically, researchers maintained that the situation, not someone’s traits or abilities, plays the most important role in determining who emerges as a leader. They also believed that leaders were made, not born, and that prior leadership experience helped forge effective leaders.

More recently

More recently

  • Leadership theories have explored how situational factors affect leaders’ behaviors.

  • a leader’s behavior was said to be depend on a leader’s perceptions of several critical aspects of the situation

    • rules and regulations governing the job

    • role expectations of subordinates

    • peers, and superiors

    • the nature of the task

    • and feedback about the subordinates’ performance.

The congruence model is a systems model with inputs processes and outputs

The Congruence Model is a systems model with inputs, processes, and outputs.

  • Input, which consists of the environment, resources, and history.

  • Processes, which consist of the work, people, formal organization, and informal organization.

  • Output, which consists of the system, unit, and individual.

    • the work,

    • the people,

    • the formal organizational,

    • the informal organization.

Congruence model1

Congruence Model

  • The work is “what is to be done” by the organization and its component parts.
