Discussion: University of Missouri (A) – Structural Frame Using the Structural F

Discussion: University of Missouri (A) – Structural Frame
Using the Structural Frame, choose a specific characteristic of the case – e.g., committees, budgets, strategy, etc., and explain in-depth how the Structural Frame informs the circumstances of the University of Missouri case.
From a structural perspective, is there anything you would have done differently? Explain, incorporating at least 1 or 2 assumptions of the Structural Frame into your response.
Remember to perform some outside research, to properly cite your sources, and to demonstrate evidence of critical thinking in your response.
Before the end of Module 1, be sure that you have responded to a minimum of two of your classmates’ postings. Remember that the Discussions are an assignment – they equate to a full 20% of your final grade; consequently, they require a minimum of 20% of the total effort you put forth into the overall course. In this context, the Discussions require additional research on your part, critical thinking, and graduate-level presentation (grammar, spelling, proper citation, etc.).

Discussion: The Strategic Compass
Week 1:
What is the difference between “Strategic Leadership” and “Strategic Management”? Using an actual organization in which you now work – or have worked previously – give several examples as to how the processes differ.
Week 2:
How does the Five Compass Model (see Wilson’s 1996 article included in the Background readings) inform our understanding of “Strategic Leadership” generally, and the role of top leadership in setting the long-term strategic direction of an organization more specifically?

After reading the Podolny article, The Buck Starts (and Stops) at Business Schoo

After reading the Podolny article, The Buck Starts (and Stops) at Business School, share your perspective on the topic. Where should ethical training start? What role do you think any advanced business degree program should play with respect to ethics? What is missing from business education?
Then, review LaFollette’s case in Chapter 1 on “to tell the truth,” which discusses individual interaction. Integrate your viewpoint on this case with your perspective on Polodny’s article. If telling the truth is an ethical behavior, then how do you educate someone to make tough ethical decisions? All situations cannot be taught and often the right answers are not clear.

Submit a 10 page paper in which you present your current personal leadership framework. A leadership framework is an organized set of ideas that help you understand the roles of leaders and followers in different leadership situations so that you can perform your own leadership and follower roles, help others to perform their leadership and followership roles, develop yourself and others for leadership and followership, and think critically about what you read and hear about leadership and followership from this day forth. Your work especially should reflect sensitivity to the ethical dimension of leadership. You should also take the context of leadership into account in terms of how it supports or limits leaders and followers and how it might impact ethical decision making and conduct. This paper does not mean that you are merely to summarize the course content. On the contrary, it means that you should give evidence of having thought critically about the major issues and concepts you have encountered in this course. For example, if you incorporate something you learned this semester, explain why you find the idea(s) particularly useful. Similarly, you should explain why you have rejected a major idea(s), if you do so. You also should inductively develop ideas about leadership and followership that reflect your engagement with the course content. You may consult journal and other sources beyond those you have been assigned during the semester to support your paper. This paper should be a statement of how you think about leadership now based on what you have read, observed or heard this semester. It should reflect your ideas. It should be a statement of what you think about leadership that you can actually live by for the near term as you gain more experience and knowledge. It should be a useful guide to you in future leadership situations, and it should be something you would be proud to give to someone who knows nothing about leadership. It should have the potential to help someone else
become a better leader and a more effective follower in the first two-three decades of the 21stcentury.The basic framework should include, as a minimum, your answers to the following:1. Definitions of basic concepts (e.g., leadership and followership)2. Identification and discussion of some of the basic issues or controversies and how you viewthem (e. g., is leadership learned or innate, are there gender differences in leadership, how is leadership different from management, how does leadership vary from one context to another and why, the importance of character and ethics)3. Theoretical basis: Upon which model(s) are you building your framework? Why? 4. Values: What core values will form the foundation of your framework?5. Maintenance: How will you keep your framework current?6. Stakeholder involvement: Who will you involve in the construction and maintenance of your framework? 7. Self-assessment: How often and through what means will you get feedback on your performance as a leader?You may cite the work of others, and you may also adopt or reject the ideas of others as long as you are able to explain why you choose to do so. Useful criteria for accepting for or rejecting the work of others include research, experience, and practicality. Each student will develop his or her own leadership framework and will be assessed on the depth of their thought, the thoroughness of their responses to the key points outlined above, the quality of their writing (grammar, spelling, punctuation), and the effective use of graphics to illustrate concepts.F. “Commitment to Leadership Action” Group Project: The goal of this assignment is to help you apply what you have learned in class; therefore, during the semester you will be required to meet with an assigned group to work as a team to develop and present a “Commitment to Leadership Action” plan on an ethics and leadership topic. Your group will choose an ethics and leadership topic to develop a plan that addresses a pressing ethical leadership challenge in one of the following areas: Education, Business, the Environment, Peace and Human Rights, Poverty Alleviation, or Healthcare. This project will allow you to develop ideas and detailed and specific plans of action that will produce measurable results within one of these areas. Your group must incorporate the ideas/concepts of ethics and leadership into your “Commitment to Leadership Action” plan. You will utilize academic/scholarly sources from the library to conduct research on your topic. Please do not use internet sources and/or articles. Your “Commitment to Leadership Action” is a specific and measurable plan that addresses a challenge in your work environment, local community, or around the world. Your group will submit a plan that will address the following components:A. Define a leadership ethical issue you have selected and its relevance to your topic areaB. Provide an explanation of how the issue has developed or changed over timeC. Give examples of cases involving this ethical issueD. Give an explanation about what you think should be done to address this issueE. Back up your opinion/solution with ethical concepts you’ve learned in the course and scholarly referencesF. Your paper must be written in APA format and must be at least 15 pages in length excluding the cover page and reference page(s). G.Class Participation:Class Participation, Punctuality, and Attendance: Students are expected to fully participate in class discussions and in completing the assignments in a timely fashion. Not completing work on time loses credit for that assignment.

Purpose and central content
The purpose is to practice one’s leadership in a self-chosen subject area. Communication, collaboration and motivational factors within an organized activity.
Leadership at different levels, leadership styles and leadership roles. In connection with this, personal leadership development and how to utilize one’s own and others’ resources are treated.
You must plan and organize a workshop / activity. You are free to choose the content of your workshop and the time you have to plan for is at least 40-60 min (can also be a planning for a longer period that extends over several weeks with several activities). You must therefore come up with an activity for a group (can be a working group, class, sports team, etc.) that you plan and describe in text.
Planning includes a detailed descriiption of your workshop as well as your purpose and goals with the activity (based on the purpose and the central content above).
In the planning, you must also justify your choices, describe which problems may arise and which possible solutions you can see.
It is important that you adapt your planning and your leadership based on the group (you have different types of individuals in your group). You choose which individuals are in the group you are to lead (you can find individuals or use a real group or mix different individuals that you know).
Try to use models and theories that you learned in the course, explain these and use in your planning to adapt the activity and leadership to the intended group and its individuals. Think about and describe how to handle unexpected events such as absence, conflicts, changed conditions (both external and internal). Use situational leadership, conflict management, authoritarian leadership style, the circle of safety by Simon sinek “The why how and what” , relational leadership for a well written paper.
Remember to use as much leadership theories as you can and apply them to the chosen activity for a well written paper.
Thank you.

All of you have probably read quite a bit about the world’s wealthiest man—Bill

All of you have probably read quite a bit about the world’s wealthiest man—Bill Gates. But some of you are probably not nearly as familiar with Bill Gates’s main rival and world’s seventh wealthiest man, former Oracle CEO Larry Ellison. Ellison recently retired as Chief Executive officer (CEO) but is still active as the chair of Oracle’s board of directors. Unlike Gates, who is relatively reserved, Ellison is known for his extravagant lifestyle and boastful interviews.
The rivalry between Ellison and Gates is legendary, but not quite as much is known about Ellison’s leadership style. He has been described as a “jerk,” and his managerial style has been described as “take no prisoners.” While he is unquestionably a powerful leader, he has also been criticized for spending a lot of time playing golf while leaving many leadership duties to his subordinates.
For this assignment, read up on leadership traits, leadership behaviors, and leadership styles in the required background materials. Then read up on Larry Ellison and find as much as you can about his personality and leadership style. Finally, try to apply what you’ve read in the required background materials about leadership traits, behaviors, and styles to what you found out about Larry Ellison.
Here are some articles to get you started on your research about Ellison:

Case Assignment
Once you are finished with your research on Ellison and have thoroughly reviewed the background materials on leadership traits, behaviors, and styles, write a 3-page paper (excluding title and references pages) to include 3 scholarly sources addressing the questions below. For each answer, make sure to cite at least one of the Case Assignment articles listed on this page as well as one of the required textbook chapters from the background materials from Hiriyappa (2009), or Bauer & Erdogan (2012).
1. How would you describe Ellison’s leadership style?
2. How would you describe Ellison’s personality and leadership traits?
3. Would you describe Ellison’s behavior as being task-oriented, or people/relationship-oriented?
4. Would you describe Ellison’s leadership style as diverse and inclusive? If so or if not, please explain your response.
Assignment Expectations
1. Your Case Assignment should be at least 3 pages in length (excluding title and reference pages).
2. Be sure to cite and reference (using APA Style) a minimum of 3 scholarly sources listed in the Course Materials and Bibliography (Module 1 Required and Optional Reading List), or in the Module 1 Background Page: Required and Optional Readings.
3. Upload your paper to the Module 1 Case Dropbox before the assignment due date.
4. Include both a reference page and in-text citations. Citation and reference style instructions are available at Trident University’s Introduction to APA Style, 7th edition .

The video you will view (see below) is an opening scene from the movie “Jerry Ma

The video you will view (see below) is an opening scene from the movie “Jerry Maguire.” In this scene, the character played by Tom Cruise is having doubts about the ethical issues in the sports representation business. In an impulsive moment, he decides to write a new mission statement for his company. In this document, Jerry Maguire argues that the priority of the company should be more on relationships with the athletes they represent, and less concern for the money and financial gains. When he enters the office the next day, his reception from fellow employees is applause, but he is soon fired by his supervisor for writing and distributing the new mission statement. How could he have used power and conflict resolution differently? In the attempt to exercise leadership, did he seem to experience strong feelings of vulnerability?

Write about a case analysis in which you respond to the following questions.
How did his attempt at leadership and creating the new mission statement create conflict with his supervisor?
How was the “focus on people, less on money” priority not compatible with the values of the company and most of the sports representative who worked there?
Discuss the following statement. Visions, missions, and strategies must align with the leadership and culture of an organization.
If you were in Jerry Maguire’s position, how would you have attempted to create the changes he desired? How would you have managed the potential conflicts that could result from a new mission in the company?
What is the analysis of power in this example?
