Managerial Leadership

1. Problem identification

***** my opinion, finding a problem in such a case 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 be discussing when referring ***** the way Jim is applying the ***** the*****y. 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. Th***** doesn't seem to me to be a leader-like attitude. Using ***** people ***** certain jobs ***** ***** directed towards increasing the over***** efficiency rather than c*****ing up for yourself as leader.

The second thing that should be discussed is related to compensation and motivation for the job. All of ***** rewards the in-group people 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, ***** ********** as by possible future promotions. In my opinion, ***** forms of reward that Jim has been using may ***** a limited period of effectiveness.

2. M*****nage*****nt practices and behavior

It is quite clear that ***** Madison prefers to delegate most of his work, especially ***** a few trusted employees ***** he h*****s formed a speci*****l ***** with. This may be seen as a positive practice, as we may consider that 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 ********** ***** ***** one of those managers ***** wants to be involved as little ***** possible in everyth*****g that gets done, ***** he may be afraid ***** t***** blame he might take lest something goes wrong. This may be, in my opinion, a certain personality trait that may take off some of the efficiency of ***** methods he is using

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

As I ***** mentioned *****fore, this *****icular organization is not necessarily having a problem. I am asserting 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 *****ir positions ***** the way they see themselves in the organization. It is clear that the ***** *****ing with Jim Madison are satisfied ***** the way he is performing as a supervisor.

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