Managerial Leadership

1. Problem identification

In my opinion, finding a problem in such a c*****se study is strictly related to whether you agree with the LMX theory or not. In this sense, stimulat*****g a cert*****in part of *****r personnel may be considered efficient or less efficient, in which case there ***** be a problem.

However, ***** several issues that should be discussing when referring to the way Jim is applying ***** LMX theory. First of all, the permanent and main reason for ***** he is using t***** in-group personnel is that he "doesn't have to do it himself" or because ***** ***** reticent about stepping up front. This doesn't seem to me to be a leader-like attitude. Using in-gro***** people for certain jobs should ***** directed towards increasing the overall efficiency rather than covering up for yourself as leader.

The second thing that should be discussed is related to compensation and motivation ***** the job. All of ***** rewards the in-group ***** get are appraisals, general recognition, a close rel*****tionship with the boss. In *****, we would expect this kind of ********** to be doubled by material ones, ***** *****ll as ***** possible future promotions. In my *****, the forms of reward that Jim has ********** ***** may ***** a limited period of effectiveness.

2. Management practices and behavior

***** is quite clear that ***** Madison prefers to delegate most of his work, especially ***** a few trusted employees ***** he has formed a special relationship with. ***** may be seen as a positive practice, ***** we may consider that a manager's task is, first of all, to organize and coordinate ***** than to actually do the work *****.

On the other h*****, as I have already mentioned here above, Jim seems ***** ***** one of those managers ***** wants to be involved ***** little as possible in everything that gets *****ne, ***** he may be afraid ***** the blame he might take lest something goes wrong. Th***** may be, in my opinion, a cert*****in personality trait that may take off some of the efficiency of ***** methods he is using

*****. Problem Analysis

As I have ***** *****fore, this *****icular organization is not necessarily having a problem. ***** am *****serting ***** because none of the indicators ***** may show there is a problem are present. *****deed, the company is functioning **********, ***** public and clients benefiting from the services provided are satisfied and, just as important, the employees are satisfied, both with their positions ***** the way they see themselves in the *****. It is clear that the people working with Jim ***** are satisfied with the ***** he is performing ***** a supervisor.

However, it m*****y be t***** case ***** this is only momentary. It ***** difficult to believe that the ***** in the in-group will remain content with the *****s *****y are receiving for their extra services. There ***** to be no sign ***** in the future this ***** change and it is difficult to keep people
