Tests Questions and answers 1. Look at the cartoon and construct a leadership analysis: (10) This cartoon shows how if one person takes the initiative to jump, others will follow. Leadership is about taking risks, and venturing out into the unknown. That’s what these people are doing. They want something better and different. Mondays are stressful and they are tired of the same routine. One person had enough, and they jumped, and the others followed. Within the cartoon the people are running to jump into the coffee. These people are following a leader. The leader gave a compelling reason for the others to follow. The leader had a relationship with the followers. The leader modeled the way and set an example. My leadership analysis of the cartoon is that everyone is running for a cup of coffee to get going on Monday morning. They are looking for their motivation in caffeine to get their work started after the weekend. As leaders, we are responsible for motivating our employees. We need to be engaging with them and communicating about what work needs to be done. Along with that, we need to be clear in the visions and goals of the organization in order for employees to feel a purpose in the work they are doing. Finding a purpose for your work can also be a motivator in itself.

In the cartoon, the little boy has a video game and games scattered around him. The parents have done a poor job because the boy had no sense of direction. He can play his games and win, but ultimately his parents will not be there saying good job, or giving him tangible rewards (i.e. trophies, certificates, etc.)> He (comparatively to an employee with no direction at work) does not share a common interest with the organization and has become mundane. It is showing leadership through a parent/child situation. The parents have to be the leaders and the child has to believe in them to follow. The cartoon is saying how the child does not agree with how they are raising him and that he does not recognize any direction that they are giving for him. Good leaders give compelling reasons and have to give their followers reasons to believe in them.

In this cartoon the leader says “After giving it much though, I’ve decided to let you go for no reason.” This shows that the leader has thought of what Brodman has done for the company and nothing came to mind. This shows that people need to do more than what is
