DEA TERMS FOR QUIZ #1 Week 1: Design in Context 1. Four roles of leadership diagram What: How a leader should behave to be most effective i. Modeling (trustworthiness): a leader becomes a model whom others trust and choose to follow ii. Path finding : Leaders scan their environment, identify key customer and stakeholder needs, and develop a mission and strategy to meet those needs. iii. Aligning : Leaders align the systems and structure of the organization with the mission, strategy, and culture. iv.
