I’m studying for my Management class and need an explanation.
Find an article that interests you that is related to leadership and followership. It can be any focus area related to leader influence on follower performance.
Use the interview from Week 1 to complete this assignment. In a 1-2-page paper, summarize your interview findings on the leadership style(s) used by your mentor in a specific situation. Include why they chose those styles. Address the following:
- How would they describe their leadership style and how does it affect the organization?
- What was the situation they had to deal with and why? (You can ask for more than one situation.)
- How did they handle the situation and why?
- What influence did their actions have on followers’ perceptions and performance?
- Would they change any of the actions they employed and why?
- What advice would they provide to those who might experience the same type of situation?
Your assessment/summary must include the answers to the prompts above. Also include material and findings from the article you found, Waldman & O’Reilly (2020), your professional experience, and any other research on the leadership topic. Incorporate research from at least two current (within the last three years) articles to support your discussion of the leadership topic. Use proper APA formatting.
