Notes for Week of April 7th, 2016 Leadership and HRM What is Leadership? It is the ability to motivate and influence a group toward the achievement of a set of goals. There is a distinction from power. There are three classes of perspectives: competency, behavioral, contingency. Competency Perspective: Effective leaders possess specific personal characteristics. Several key competencies consistently associated with leadership: personality, self- concept, intelligence (cognitive and emotional), motivation, integrity, job- relevant knowledge. Competency Perspective Limitations:  Implies a universal approach  Alternative combinations of competencies might work just as well  Leadership Is relational, not just something within the person  Competencies refer to leadership potential, not performance Behavioral Perspective: Behaviors make the leader. Shift in underlying assumptions about leadership. Types of leadership:  Task-oriented vs. people-oriented: o Task oriented: assign work, set goals, establish work procedures o People oriented: concern for employee needs, make work pleasant, listen to employees, recognize employees contributions Transformational vs. transactional: o Transformational: change agents- creating, communicating, and modeling a vision for the team or organization and inspiring employees to strive for that vision. o Transactional: influencing followers through rewards, penalties and negotiation. Elements of Transformational Leadership: Develop a strategic vision: image of company’s future; superordinate goal  Communicate the vision: emotional appeal; shared mental model, symbols  Model the vision: walk the talk, show consistency  Build commitment to the vision: contagious enthusiasm; employee involvement Leader Behavior Perspective Limitations: The most appropriate leadership style depends on the situation. The model is called Path-Goal leadership model. Path Goal Leadership Model: Leadership Styles:  Directive: provide structure to the jobs; task oriented behavior  Supportive: provide support, people oriented behaviors  Participative: encourage/facilitate employee involvement  Achievement Oriented: encourage peak performance through goal setting Path Goal Contingencies:  When employee’s skills and experiences are low, use directive or supportive leadership.  When employees’ locus of control is: internal- use participative or achievement leadership, external-use directive or supportive leadership  When task structure is non-routine: use directive or participative leadership  When the team has low cohesion: use supportive leadership, has dysfunctional norms: use directive leadership PART TWO HRM Misconceptions:  Conscientiousness vs. Intelligence  Values vs. Intelligence  Integrity Tests  Employee participation vs goal setting  Eliminating appraisal errors  Employees’ perceptions about pay HR Begins with a Job Analysis: A Job Analysis describes: tasks, KSAOs (Knowledge, skills, abilities, other attributes) A Job Analysis is used to write:  Job Description  Job Specification: show the minimum requirements Methods of Training:  Lecture  Programmed Instructions  Behavioral Modeling o Social Learning Theory  Behavioral Simulation Methods of Evaluation:  Critical Incidents  Graphic Rating Scales  Behaviorally Anchored Rating Scales (BARS)  Forced Comparisons o Group order ranking o individual ranking For More effective Evaluations:  Emphasize Behaviors  Use Multiple Evaluations  Due Process  Train Evaluators
