Managerial Leadership

1. Problem identification

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

However, there several issues that should be discussing when referring ***** the way Jim is applying ***** ***** the*****y. 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 *****esn't seem to me to be a leader-like attitude. Using in-group people ***** certain jobs ***** ***** 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 the rewards ***** in-group people get are appraisals, general recognition, a close rel*****tionship with the boss. ***** general, we would expect this kind of *****s to be doubled by material ones, ***** well as ***** possible future promotions. In my opinion, the forms of reward that Jim has *****en ***** may ***** a limited period of effectiveness.

2. Manage*****nt practices and behavior

***** is quite clear that Jim Madison prefers to delegate most of his work, especially ***** a few trusted employees that he has formed a speci*****l relationship with. T***** may be seen as a positive practice, ***** we may consider that a manager's task is, first of all, to organize ***** coordinate rather than ***** actually do the work *****.

***** the other hand, as I have already mentioned here above, Jim *****s to ***** one ***** those managers ***** wants to be involved as little as possible in everyth*****g that gets done, *****cause he may be afraid of the blame he might take lest something goes wrong. *****his may *****, in my *****, a ***** personality trait ***** may take off some of the efficiency of the methods he is using

3. ***** Analysis

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

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