Middle level managers have a higher needs for interpersonal skill. (eg. Dean of faculty, senior manager, general manager, regional manager, divisional manager). First level managers have a greater need for technical and interpersonal skills than decision making skills (HOD/HOP, supervisor, operations manager, production manager, department manager...etc). 3. Describe the category of decisional role stated by Henry Mintzberg and discuss why leadership is important? Answer: The decisional leadership roles include entrepreneur, disturbance handler, resource allocator, and negotiator.

Leaders perform the resource-allocator role when they schedule, request authorization, and perform budgeting activities. Negotiator Role Leaders perform the negotiator role when they represent their organizational unit during transactions that do not include set boundaries (such as only one price and term of a sale/purchase for a product/service or pay of an employee). Negotiate material cost/payment term and condition with supplier, negotiate selling price with customer. A few reasons why leadership is so important include: The success of individual careers and the competitive advantage of organizations are determined by the effectiveness of leaders’ behavior. Chief executive officers (CEOs) understand that they can’t run companies on their own; the secret is to foster a leadership mentality throughout the organization. Well-publicized corporate failures have brought home the critical role that leadership plays in the success or failure of almost every aspect of the profit and not-for-profit environment.

    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.
