Establishing and Applying a Leadership Style to an Organization and the Actions to Take

There are several strategic leadership styles that leaders can follow. Moreover, this has an impact on the strategic management process but it also depends on the actions that the top management team takes to ensure effective leadership within a business. Having this in mind, you are required to prepare an essay regarding strategic leadership. More specifically, you are to consider yourself as a NEW senior manager in an organisation operating in your hometown, having 57 employees under your leadership. You are required to suggest the type of leadership you should use as a new senior manager in the company in order to effectively lead your employees and extract from them 100% of their productivity. Please critically explain why you would use the chosen leadership style and what are the actions that you would take. Your report should be grounded in relevant theory – use the core and recommended reading – at the same time you should CRITICALLY justify your choices in the assignment. (recommended reading attached as additional material). It is essential to present and discuss a strategic leadership style and the strategic management process before engaging in applying the concept in your own case. A proper structure of the assignment is as follows: 1. Introduction 2. Main concepts of strategic leadership (including sub-headings) 3. Conclusion 4. Recommendations (not compulsory) References Appendices (if applicable)
