2 Abstract For this paper, I have chosen two women under whom I have worked. One is my current manager and the other is my previous manager from a different health system. In this paper, I will compare and contrast their leadership styles and how this affects their employees and organization. I will also analyze how effective or ineffective both of these leaders are, and my reasoning for choosing to follow or not to follow them and the possible risks myself and other employees take when making this decision.

3 Quality of Leadership and its Effect on Followers Throughout my adult life, I have held many different positions at many different organizations ranging from childcare provider to bank teller to radiologic technologist. In all of these organizations I have worked under many different leaders with entirely different leadership styles, but when I was tasked with this assignment, two leaders stuck out to me. The first leader I will discuss is my former manager at a previous healthcare facility where I was employed. She is not the type of leader anyone would want to work for, so she was an excellent fit to compare with my current manager. Currently, I am working at VCU Health Systems, a healthcare system I have aspired to work for since I became a radiologic technologist. My current manager is the best leader I have ever had the opportunity to follow. During this paper, you will learn about the different leadership techniques both of these women have incorporated into managing their organizations and whether or not these leaders I have chosen adhere to the contingency theory as well as the styles we learned about in Goleman (2000) and Bjugstad, Thach, Thompson, and Morris (2006).

    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.
