Leadership must be present in all aspects of an organization in order for it to be successful. Tom Peters and Nancy Austin in A Passion for Excellence, say that leadership “means vision, cheerleading, enthusiasm, love, trust, verve, passion, obsession, consistency, the use of symbols, paying attention as illustrated by the content of one’s calendar, out-and-out drama (and the management thereof), creating heroes at all levels, coaching, effectively wandering around, and numerous other things.” (Kinicki & Williams, 2016) Behavioral leadership approaches try to determine specific behaviors displayed by successful leaders in the workplace. These behavioral approaches are divided into four categories; task-oriented behavior, relationship-oriented behavior, passive behavior and transformational behavior. I will be describing three of the four categories. First, the main purpose of task- oriented leadership behaviors is to make sure that all employees, equipment, and assets are being effectively used in the most efficient way to complete the organizations task and or mission. This type of leadership excels in problem solving, planning, and monitoring. Relationship-oriented behavior leadership solely focuses on their leaders ability to interact with his or her employees, all while paying attention to their needs and desires while guiding them to achieve the goals of their organization.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
