Managerial Leadership

1. Problem identification

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

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

The second thing that ***** be discussed is related to compensation and motivation for the job. All of ***** rewards the in-group ***** get are appraisals, general recognition, a close relationship with the boss. In *****, we would expect this kind of compensations to be doubled by material ones, ***** well as by possible future promotions. In my opinion, the forms of reward that Jim has been using may ***** 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 speci*****l ***** with. ***** may be seen as a positive practice, ***** we may consider ***** a manager's task is, first of all, to organize and coordinate rather than to actually do the work himself.

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

3. Problem Analysis

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

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