Leadership studies demonstrate that the most effective leaders know how to draw upon self-leadership skills to in turn motivate and lead others to expand their strengths to ultimately better serve the goals of an organization. For this assignment, you will continue to study conscious leadership and look at a leadership example from contemporary media and evaluate how well the particular leader exemplifies the qualities of effective and ethical conscious leadership.
Select a relevant and topical leadership issue from current news media that revolves around ethics and ethical decision-making. Research the situation and gather information in order to evaluate the leader. Keep in mind, the issue that you choose will serve as the backdrop for your evaluation while using the key terms and concepts covered in your course readings. Write an evaluation of a minimum of 1,000-1,250 words of the situation that addresses the following:
The power bases used by the leader.
The influence tactics used by the leader.
The leadership style of the leader.
The outcome (or potential outcome) of the situation.
Conclude by justifying whether you think this leader supports the values of conscious capitalism. Is the leader’s leadership style effective? Do you believe the leader acted ethically in the situation? Be sure to consider each tenet of conscious capitalism in your leader evaluation.
Next, imagine yourself as a practitioner of servant leadership. You have been appointed into the leadership role in this same circumstance. Explain how the situation would be different. Address the four criteria listed above in your discussion and incorporate the principles of conscious capitalism by explaining how your personal values and style are influenced by each tenet.
irst and Peters (1970) Hirst and Peters emphasises on the role of the teacher with regards to the students. The teacher earns authority from the community and that authority should be used to enforce certain rules that are expected from the learners and that those rules enforced should relate to educational purposes. The authoritarian teacher is one that relishes in the giving of orders and formulating particular rules to suit their own needs or status. However, according to Hirst and Peters the complete disregard to enforce rules required for learners to excel in education is illogical. In the 1960′ and 1970’s educational ideologies were explicitly analysed where progressive educational thinkers completely rejected traditional authority, for it was seen as an oppressive force or as Hirst and Peters would state; was a practice of thorough authoritarian nature (Hurn, 1985). However, in the 1980’s schools were renounced by conservatives for completely eradicating the practice of authority in classrooms. Hirst and Peters speaks of the traditional teacher and the progressive teacher. Where the authority of content knowledge was attributed to the traditional teacher and whereas the progressive teachers’ attributes were more acclimatised for the development of children. Thus there should be a balance between the two, as a teacher you cannot be completely traditional for then you lack empathy with students and you cannot be completely progressive for then you will lack classroom management. A teacher should aspire to be in authority, however, disregarding complete authoritarian behaviour. Teachers should see themselves as ‘provisional authorities’; that do not only provide learners with the content knowledge that they require to excel in society but also to stimulate the development of learners with the intention that the learners will ultimately be equip with the necessary skills to manage individually. ‘The good t>GET ANSWER
