LEADERSHIP TRAITS, BEHAVIORS, AND STYLES

Case Assignment

One of the most surprising recent success stories in the corporate world is the rapid turnaround of

Chrysler under the leadership of CEO Sergio Marchionne. Chrysler went bankrupt during the 2008-2009

automotive industry crisis and needed a large bailout loan from the government. But Marchionne

exceeded all expectations and not only returned Chrysler to profitability within two years but also

managed to repay its loan from the government six years ahead of schedule.

But Marchionne is not your typical CEO. His approach to turning around Chrysler has been described as

“tough love” and his habits of rapidly hiring and firing senior executives has raised some eyebrows.

Simultaneously serving as both the CEO of Chrysler and CEO of Italian automaker Fiat, he is known as a

workaholic and micromanager. Marchionne’s leadership style makes for an ideal case study due to his

unique personality and because there is plenty

unique personality, and because there is plenty of articles written about him available in the Trident library

and on the internet.

Review the background materials on leadership traits, behaviors, and styles. Then do some research on

Sergio Marchionne’s leadership style and personality. Here are some articles to get you started:

Wernle, B., & Ciferri, L. (2009). Life under Marchionne: New stars, hasty exits. Automotive News,

84(6381), 1-1,42. [Proquest]

2011 All-Stars: Sergio Marchionne. (2011). Automotive News, 86(6492), 28. [Proquest]

Flavelle, D. (2014, Mar 08). CEO aims to steer Chrysler back on track. Toronto Star,Toronto. [Proquest]

Wernle, B. (2010). Inside Chrysler’s Mind. Automotive News, 84(6396), 1-1,19. [Proquest]

Once you are finished with your research on Marchionne and have thoroughly reviewed the background

materials on leadership traits, behaviors, and styles write a four to five page paper addressing the

following questions. For each answer, make sure to cite at least one of the Case Assignment articles

listed on this page as well as one of the required textbook chapters from the background materials such

as Avery (2011), Hiriyappa (2009), or Kumar (2009):

1. How would you describe Marchionne’s personality and leadership traits? Refer to the traits

discussed in Avery (2011) andKumar (2009), and consider the common traits listed discussed in

these book chapters such as drive, intelligence, integrity, and self-confidence.

2. Would you describe Marchionne’s behavior as being task-oriented, or people-

centered/relationship-oriented? Refer to Avery (2011) and the Pearson tutorial in your answer.

3. How would you describe Marchionne’s leadership style? Consider the leadership styles

discussed in the “Types of Leaders/Leadership Styles” section of Chapter 10 ofHiriyappa (2010)

leadership traits behaviors and styles

LEADERSHIP TRAITS, BEHAVIORS, AND STYLES

For the Session Long Project you will be applying the concepts in the background materials to your own

personal experiences in the workplace. For this first SLP choose a supervisor that you personally worked

for and got to know well, and apply the background materials to analyze their leadership qualities.

Carefully reflect on your supervisor’s traits, behaviors, and leadership styles. Then write a two- to three-

page paper addressing the following issues:

1. Overall, would you consider your supervisor to be a leader based on definitions of leadership you

found in the background texts? Or was he or she simply a manager rather than a leader? Refer to

the section on “Differences between Leadership and Management” in Chapter 10 of Hiriyappa

(2010).

2. How would you describe your supervisor’s personality and leadership traits?

3. Would you describe your supervisor’s behavior as being task-oriented, or people-

centered/relationship-oriented?

4. How would you describe your supervisor’s leadership style? Consider leadership styles discussed

in the background text materials such as autocratic style, participative/democratic style, and

laissez-faire/free-rein style.

Module 2 – Case

ONE SIZE DOESN’T FIT ALL: SITUATIONAL APPROACHES TO LEADERSHIP

Case Assignment

For this assignment, first review the background materials with a focus on Hersey and Blanchard’s

Situational Leadership model. Make sure you are familiar with the four leadership styles covered in the

situational approach including Directing, Coaching, Supporting, and Delegating and situations where you

are supposed to use these four styles.

Also, familiarize yourself with the more complex Path Goal model and Fiedler’s Contingency model. You

don’t need to know these two models in as much detail as the Situational model to complete this

assignment, but make sure you understand the main idea of these models as well as some of their main

advantages and disadvantages.

Once you have finished your reading and research, write a four to five page paper answering the

following questions. Make sure to cite at least one of the required background readings in each answer,

and to cite at least three of the required readings total in your paper:

1. For each of the following situations, explain which of the four leadership styles covered in the

Situational model should be used and explain your reasoning with references to Chapter 4 of

Avery (2011) and at least one other required reading from the background materials:

2 you are in charge of a team of architects they

2. You are in charge of a team of architects. They are highly skilled but have strong opinions and do

not necessarily follow instructions. These architects are independent thinkers who are used to

doing things their own way.

3. You are in charge of a fast food restaurant. The employees are all teenagers who have not yet

graduated from high school, and for most of them this is their first job.

4. You are the supervisor for a team of software engineers. They are all highly skilled and highly

motivated, and are used to working independently. All of them believe in the mission of the

company.

5. For the above situations, how hard would it be to apply the Fielder Contingency model or the Path

Goal model to choose a leadership style? Would it be easy, or would you require a lot more

information about each of the situations? You don’t need to actually apply these two models, just

discuss how difficult it might be to apply these models.

6. Of the three models (Situational, Fielder Contingency, Path Goal), which one do you think is the

most useful for the real world? Explain your reasoning.

Module 2 – SLP

ONE SIZE DOESN’T FIT ALL: SITUATIONAL APPROACHES TO LEADERSHIP

For the Module 2 SLP you will continue to apply the concepts from the background materials to your own

personal experiences in the workplace. Think carefully about Hersey and Blanchard’s Situational

Leadership model and the four leadership styles of Directing, Coaching, Supporting, and Delegating.

Then consider the styles of one or more of the supervisors you have worked with, and reflect upon

whether or not their style changed depending on the situation.

After doing some reflecting on your own experiencing and reviewing the background materials, write a

two to three page paper addressing the following issues:

1. In general, would you describe your supervisor’s style as Directing, Coaching, Supporting, or

Delegating?

2. Did you ever notice any of your supervisors changing their leadership style depending on the

situation? If so, explain what you observed and discuss whether or not you think your supervisor

followed the Situational Leadership model. If not, discuss a situation when you think your

supervisor should have changed their style but did not.

3. Would you recommend that your supervisor take a training seminar on the Situational Leadership

model, Fiedler’s Contingency model, or the Path-Goal model? Explain your reasoning.

CHANGE-ORIENTED LEADERSHIP: TRANSFORMATIONAL AND CHARISMATIC LEADERS

Case Assignment

Yahoo was once a giant in the internet world, experiencing rapid growth and soaring stock prices after

being founded in 1994. But currently Yahoo is struggling against fierce competitors such as Google and

Facebook. It was clear to their Board of Directors and shareholders that radical change was necessary in

order for Yahoo to remain competitive. In 2012 former Google executive Marissa Mayer was named as

the new CEO.

Since joining Yahoo, Mayer has not been shy or hesitant about bringing about change. This has included

the purchase of over 20 companies, banning teleworking, strict new hiring policies, and clashes with other

senior executives and shareholders. The results so far have been mixed, with some observers saying her

hard-nosed approach is what is needed for a struggling company like Yahoo and others saying that her

style is overbearing and unnecessarily harsh.

First, carefully review the four background readings on change-oriented leadership with close attention to

the definitions of transformational, transactional, and charismatic leadership. You need to apply these

definitions when writing your paper. Then do some research on Marissa Mayer and her approach to

managing change. You will find a lot of articles about her as she is frequently in the news. Here are a few

articles to get you started:

Yahoo’s geek goddess. (January, 2014). Vanity Fair, 56, 68. [Proquest]

Quinn, M. (Jan. 22, 2014). Poof. Marissa Mayer’s honeymoon period at Yahoo ends. Oakland

Tribune[Proquest]

Cook, J. (2013, Mar 15). Can a ‘hard reset’ give Yahoo a boost? The Globe and Mail[Proquest]

After you have reviewed the background materials on managing change and finished your research on

Marissa Mayer, write a four to five page paper addressing the following issues. Make sure to cite both

required background readings such as barine

required background readings such as Barine and Minja (2012) as well as specific articles on Marissa

Mayer such as Quinn (2014) or Cook (2013) in your paper:

1. Overall, how would you describe Marissa Mayer’s approach to leadership? Discuss her

leadership style the best you can in terms of being a charismatic leader, a transformational

leader, and/or a transactional leader. Draw upon the definitions of these types of leadership from

Rainey (2009) and Avery (2011) and discuss them as they apply to Marissa Mayer.

2. What do you are the main benefits and drawbacks of Mayer’s approach to leadership and

change?

3. How do you think Marissa Mayer should change her leadership style?

Module 3 – SLP

CHANGE-ORIENTED LEADERSHIP: TRANSFORMATIONAL AND CHARISMATIC LEADERS

For the Module 3 SLP you will be again be applying the concepts from the background materials to your

own personal experiences. You can write about the same supervisor you wrote about in Modules 1 and 2,

or choose a different supervisor that you worked with and got to know well.

Carefully review the concepts and definitions of charismatic, transformational, and transactional

leadership. Then write a two to three page paper addressing the following issues using specific examples

from your personal experiences:

1. Did your supervisor meet any of the characteristics of a charismatic leader as defined and

discussed in the background readings?

2. Did your supervisor meet any of the characteristics of a transformational leader?

3. Did your supervisor meet any of the characteristics of a transactional leader?

Module 4 – Case

MANAGING ORGANIZATIONAL CHANGE

Case Assignment

For this assignment, first do a thorough review of the required background materials and read up on each

author’s discussion about Kotter’s eight step model of change, Lewin’s three step model, and the five

steps involved in action research. All of the authors discuss at least one of these models. There are also

some optional videos on some of these models that might help.

When you are done reviewing these models of organizational change, take a look at the scenarios

described in Questions 1-3. For each of these scenarios, explain which of the three models of change

would be most appropriate for this situation. Finally, Question 4 is a summary question that you should

also answer using the required readings. Explain your reasoning for each of your answers to the four

assignment questions, and use at least one of the required readings to support each answer. You are

required to cite at least one of the required videos or tutorials and two of required readings in your paper.

Your paper should be four to five pages in length:

1. Ten years ago the CEO of a company attempted to implement a major restructuring of her

company. However, this restructuring ended up being delayed repeatedly due to opposition from

both the employee union as well as by several senior managers. Now that ten years have

passed, it has become clear to the CEO that the change should have been implemented as now

the company is facing many of the problems that she predicted ten years ago. Furthermore, the

CEO believes the company will go out of business unless the restructuring is done. Also, in the

past ten years she has made peace with many union leaders and senior managers and believes

she might be able to get their support for a restructuring if you she is able to convince them of the

extreme necessity of making this change.

2. The Chief Financial Officer (CFO) and the Chief Marketing Officer (CMO) have a major

disagreement. The CFO wants to radically scale back expenditures on marketing and change the

focus of the organization away from expensive advertising and instead rely on cheaper

relationship marketing techniques. The CMO instead wants to greatly expand advertising, and

even wants the company to borrow money to finance a major new advertising campaign. Both

present detailed data to support their point of view, but the CEO cannot tell who is wrong or who

is right as the data they present is confusing and contradictory. Furthermore, the CEO does not

want to anger the marketing department or the finance department by seeming to favor one side

or the other. However, the CEO does see the need to make major changes in marketing strategy

and other areas in order to boost revenues.

3. A small town newspaper still has a loyal following in the town and in neighboring areas, especially

among the older residents. However, the publisher of the paper is concerned that nobody under

the age of 30 seems to ever read the paper

the age of 30 seems to ever read the paper and instead they get all their news from the internet.

Furthermore, all of the employees at the newspaper have been working there for over 20 years

and are very resistant to any type of change. The publisher wants to publish a print version only

once a week instead of every day, and instead focus on reporting the news through blogs and

social media. He is confident his well-qualified staff will be able do a good job in this new format,

but since they have been doing the exact same type of work for the last 20 years he is concerned

about rather extreme resistance to making any type of change in the workplace.

4. Conclude your paper with a discussion about which of the three change models you think is the

most useful and which one you think is the least useful. Support your answer with references to

the required background materials.

MANAGING ORGANIZATIONAL CHANGE

For the Module 4 SLP think about a major organizational change that occurred in your workplace. Think

carefully about the steps taken by management during the change process, and the organizational

change processes and concepts that you read about in the background materials. Then write a two to

three page paper addressing the following issues. Make sure to cite at least two of the required

background readings in your paper:

1. Describe the change that occurred in your workplace. Was the change successful? Was there a

lot of employee resistance to this change?

2. What steps and processes did management take to implement this change? Was it similar to

Lewin’s three steps, Kotter’s eight steps, or the five steps used in action research?

3. In retrospect, do you think the change process would have gone better if management used

Lewin’s three steps, Kotter’s eight steps, or the five step approach of action research?

Carefully explain your reasoning for each of your three answers using specific examples from your

personal experience and the concepts from the background materials.
