Part 1 A 210 words Examine& discuss role of leadership how it relates to management role inorganisationIn order for any business to thrive it musthave leadership and within this framework the role of manager meets this need.A manger will drive the business to perform, through individuals and teams, asforecast. A manger must have leadership qualities to achieve the best outcomewith regard to staff, outputs and time. (1) Prof John Adair’s Action-CentredLeadership Model is regarded as the ideal design of effective leadership for amanager.
The three key points to this model are based on what a manger does ina) Meeting the requirements and developing an individual, b) developing a Teamand c) accomplishing an undertaking. An effective leader will have achievedwell in all three of these areas. For example a manager who is primarily apeople person may have favourites leading to unsuitable promotion, criticism fromother staff, reduced co-operation and overlooking of potential talent.
Amanager who is more task orientated will ignore individuals needs in favour ofachieving a task leading to an individual feeling ignored or feeling notreliable and who will then not be inclined to communicate for the good of theorganisation any suggestions or ideas which might be of benefit. Also a managerwho leans more towards the Team can create an era of non-action due to theconstant need for a consensus for every task. A manager who has a tendencytowards one of these key areas and neglects the others has the potential toalienate individuals within an organisation. This will negatively impact on amanager’s ability to fulfil their role.
