Caroline Herring BUS 520- Leadership and Ethics Dr. Hanson June 26, 2011 Place Of Work Observer Study There are two different leadership theories that can be seen in the workplace. These two theories are transformational and complexity leadership theories. Transformational leadership is “a process whereby leadership emerges from the interplay of leader and group members.” Transformational leadership can be described as “influencing followers to think more of the organizational than themselves”. In contrast, complexity leadership is “a process- an interactive human dynamic in which the leader and followers influence each other to reach a specific end.” It differs from transformational leadership because transformational leadership “retains a leader centricity focus, and does not tae in the completeness of informal leaders as a type of member or group interaction.” The environment of the workplace in this situation would be a highly fast-pasted automotive manufacturing industry. In this situation, many employees are pressured to work long hours and meet deadlines very quickly. The culture of the company is also unique because it is a French-owned company. (Hanson) The first example of leadership in this situation is in transformational leadership. One example in this company would be how the employees are always encouraged to think of the company before themselves. Many times the salaried office workers come in early and stay late to finish their workload.
