MGT  429  (Leadership)  Notes  –  Week  2     Leadership  is  the  ability  to  direct  others  down  a  path  they  would  not  have  went  otherwise.     Things  to  remember:   -­‐   Bad  leadership  is  just  as  complex  as  good  leadership   -­‐   Language  fails   -­‐   Two  factors  that  determine  leadership:  effectiveness  and  efficiency     The  idea  of  good  and  bad  leadership  must  disappear—there  is  no  such  thing.   -­‐   It  must  be  measured  with  effectiveness  and  efficiency.     The  Art  of  War  –    Discussions  about  Sun  Tzu’s  ideas     Q:  Could  Sun  Tzu’s  idea  of  ordering  the  deaths  of  his  two  most  recognized  yet  undisciplined   concubines  be  classified  as  efficient?  Note:  The  King  requested  he  let  them  live.     Keep  in  mind:   -­‐   Tzu  believed  in  using  as  little  resources  as  possible  in  success   -­‐   He  had  the  executioner  perform  the  act   -­‐   Why  did  he  order  their  deaths  if  they  are  resources?  And  why  against  the  King’s   request?     Discussion:   -­‐   The  effectiveness  of  Tzu’s  method  was  certain;  the  efficiency  is  in  question   -­‐   Technically,  it  is  inefficient  if  resources  are  being  unnecessarily  discarded,  but  did  he   actually  save  more  lives  than  what  were  lost  in  the  incident?   -­‐   Think  of  a  substitute  teacher:  when  there  was  a  substitute,  could  they  ever  get  control   of  the  class?  Tzu—being  recently  appointed  by  the  King—had  to  be  effective  with  his   statement  that  he  was  the  one  with  the  power   -­‐   If  he  did  not  get  his  army  to  be  disciplined  and  respect  his  authority  fast,  more  lives   could  have  been  lost;  he  chose  two  instead  of  thousands   -­‐   This  is  not  good  or  bad  leadership;  he  was  effective  in  getting  people  to  do  something   they  would  not  have  done  had  he  not  killed  the  concubines;  efficient  as  well,  but   questionable  as  to  how  much
