Module 3      2 Abstract Response to the first question describes 14 leadership functions identified by Yukl.  Response to the second question illustrates my opinion on research that suggests that  leaders who are more interpersonally oriented and those who use more participative  styles   in   particular   have   followers   with   higher   levels   of   satisfaction   and   morale.  Response to third question lists three general types of factors that have been the focus  of researches’ attention regarding who becomes defined as a leader. Response to the  fourth lists the “big five” personality characteristics. Response to fifth question lists four  styles of decision-making. .

Module 3      3 Module 3 Deliverables Assignments:  Questions Question 1:  Yukl and his colleagues (1990) identified fourteen separate leadership  functions. Describe these leadership functions. What do you think are the three  most important functions in terms of producing leadership success from a career  perspective? Explain your reasoning.

Problem  solving   involves   identifying  the  problem,   listing  possible   solutions,  choosing the best solution, implementing the solution and finally monitoring the  results. Planning is proactive while problem solving tends to be more reactive.  3. Informing   provides   information   to   subordinates   and   peers   to   begin   the  coordination of work efforts.  4. Monitoring  Leaders must monitor their environments to ensure the effectiveness  of their processes, the status of their projects, their subordinate’s competencies,
