Managerial Leadership

1. Problem identification

In 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, stimulating a certain part of *****r personnel may be considered efficient ***** less efficient, in which case there ***** be a problem.

However, ***** several issues that should be discussing when referring to the way Jim is applying the ***** theory. First of all, the permanent and main reason for ***** he is using the 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-group people ***** certain jobs should be directed towards increasing the over***** efficiency rather than c*****ing up for yourself as leader.

The second thing that ***** 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 ***** the boss. ***** general, we would expect this kind of *****s to be doubled by material ones, ***** well as by possible future promotions. In my *****, ***** forms of reward that Jim has been using may have a limited period of effectiveness.

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

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

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

*****. ***** Analysis

As I ***** ***** *****fore, this *****icular organization is not necessarily having a *****. ***** am *****serting ***** because none ***** the indicators ***** may show *****re is a problem are present. *****deed, the company ***** 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 ***** working with Jim ***** are satisfied ***** the way he is performing ***** a supervisor.

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