4. Part of the reason for naming a leadership style a leadership persona is to underline the idea that being a leader can be like donning a mask: you can be whatever you choose when you stand in front of others and direct. Besides being a leader at Studio 54, D’Alessio was also a massive party person. How is adopting a personality for leading an organization like adopting a style to exhibit when you go out with friends on the weekend? An effective leader uses various styles that suits the conditions to ensure organizational goals are met. Management styles are developed based on personality, and even the type of people which one leads and the type of business he manages. The leader should choose a style that will be most effective I realizing his goals. Going out on a weekend with friends usually shows the real you brings out ones personality and in the very same way styles of management are developed based on personality. Reference: Brusseau, J.

by Peter Lee - Wednesday, 18 December 2019, 10:13 PM You mentioned that “styles of management are developed based on personality“: I found that to be especially thought-provoking. Part of my work in civics engagement has been to increase both the quantity and diversity of people in leadership roles: what you mentioned triggered a question in my own mind as to whether or not some people are ‘not great managers’ because of personality—or if societies have a tendency to limit their vision for who and what leaders could be. Perhaps the most polarizing leader I’veever discussed with friends and acquaintances is Steve Jobs. Virtually everyone agrees that he was either a ‘very good’ or ‘amazing’ visionary, but a major source of contention is whether or not he was a good leader. I tend to be in the camp that he was a great leader, but the grievances of my loyal opposition (also, friends) is that he was terribly authoritarian (there’s truth to that), had inexorably obnoxious temper tantrums (true), and could be extremely manipulative (also true). I don’t believe Jobs is a great leader to use as an aspirational benchmark—but then again, I am typing this on an iPad, so... [I highly recommend the biography on Steve Jobs by Walter Issacson in case you’re curious: despite some relatively undeserved griping, I believe Issacson was a ‘fair dealer’ in regards to describing both Jobs and the context around him, Apple, NeXT, Pixar, Apple (again), etc.] 237 wordsPermalinkShow parentReplyIn reply to Peter Lee Re: Discussion Forum Unit 5 by Patrick Moore - Thursday, 19 December 2019, 6:33 AM Hey Peter thanks for the feedback. I am a fan of Steve Jobs myself and I will definitely check out the biography.
