Theories of a "High-High " Leader                          Exhibit 2.4:   Themes of Leader Behavior Research                                                 The research led to people-oriented and task-oriented behaviors. The findings raised four questions: whether these two dimensions are the most important behaviors of leadership o Leadership research identifies task-oriented behavior and people-oriented  behavior as the primary categories of effective leadership. whether people orientation and task orientation exist together in the same leader,  and how  o The Grid theory argues that both are present when people work with or  through others to accomplish an activity.  o The belief is that the best leaders are high on both behaviors. whether a "high- high" leadership style is universal or situational o people-oriented behavior leads to higher employee satisfaction  o task-oriented behavior leads to higher productivity. whether people can actually change themselves into leaders high on people  and/or task-orientation. o Anyone can imitate the behaviors of effective leaders. "High-high" leadership is desirable because the leader meets both needs simultaneously. Action Memo  As a leader, you can succeed in a variety of situations by showing  concern for both tasks and people. People-oriented behavior is related to higher  follower satisfaction, and task-oriented behavior is typically associated with higher  productivity. Discussion question #8:  Which type of leader---task-oriented or people-oriented---do  you think would have an easier time becoming a “high-high” leader. Why?

    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.
