Part B Leadership Styles for Dealing with People by Edwin T. Cornelius III, Ph.D http://www.corneliusassoc.com/CA/new/impact/July%202006/Leadershipstyles.htm Leadership Styles for dealing with People is a useful source as a supporting basis for the topic that I chose. The source is a one page view only and the facts are given directly. As communicating professionals we need to have this trait. The source gives the five distinct styles of a leader in dealing with the people. It defines the leadership style. According to the source leadership style as the broad, characteristic way in which a leader interacts with others across in various situations and occasions. The source also gives impact to center the style of leader in a degree of assertiveness in dealing with people, which in turn help the leader to be effective. The source gives illustration on five variations or degrees of assertive behavior. The illustration shows the aggressive style at one extreme end of the continuum and a submissive style at the other extreme. In between the extremes are the three different styles of dealing with others: low assertive, mid assertive and high assertive. The five broad styles were also defined in more detail, and give typical. In every degree of
assertiveness the author ask an employee to generate a list of synonyms for that level. According to the author the low assertive leader is someone who cares for others and is a good listener, but at the same time will speak up when needed. With low assertive leadership, there is a larger emphasis on listening and understanding others than there is on trying to be understood by others. However, the low assertive leader never crosses the line to become submissive. The one-word descriptor we use to characterize the low assertive style is “Caring.” Then a mid-assertive leader falls between the high and low assertive styles of behavior. Mid assertive leadership style is when there is an equal balance between the energy needed to understand others and the energy needed to be understood by others. This approach is more of a collaborative, or teamwork, style with appropriate give and take in interpersonal relationships. The mid assertive leader is a mixture of caring for others while at the same time being compelling or persuading others. The one-word descriptor we use for the mid assertive style is “Collaborative.” While the high assertive leaders are typically firm and places an emphasis on ensuring others understands his or her views. However, the high assertive person still never behaves aggressively toward others. The high assertive leader can make a compelling argument and will spend considerable time persuading others to a course of action. With the high assertive style, there is more of an emphasis on being understood by others than trying to understand others. This style is not aggressive, however, because the leader with a high assertive style never crosses the line to “run over” people. High assertive leaders can seem pushy at times, but they are still respectful toward other people. The one-word descriptor that characterizes the high assertive style is “Compelling.” The author give a full model table format, this table gives the five distinct styles of a leader. For each of these five styles we demonstrate the degree of assertiveness involved, how a person comes across to others when employing the style, the degree to which the style encourages the involvement and participation of others, as well as the overall effect each style has on people. Also notice that we have put category labels on these five styles as follows: (1) Submissive, (2) Caring (Low Assertive), (3) Collaborative (Mid Assertive), (4) Compelling (High Assertive) and (5) Aggressive. The author gives also an example taken from an actual office work situation that demonstrating the five different behavioral stages of a leader. In this example we can easily verify and understand the behavioral degree of a leader.
New Study on Assertiveness and Leadership by Kendra Cherry http://psychology.about.com/b/2007/02/07/new-study-on-assertiveness-andleadership.htm My second source is also useful. The title New Study on Assertiveness and Leadership gives you a hint that this will help in answering the question the “Group work in professions can be difficult unless there is an assertive leader. Do you agree or disagree? As a paralinguistic professional we need to read this article. The source gives more narrow but informative supporting resource. What qualities make a person a great leader? This was the very first approach that the author
gives. Published in the February issue of the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology, “optimal” levels of assertiveness play a key role. Like what the source content the assertiveness is one of the major problem areas that the traits of a leader good leader have. This source gives the answer of why does many people identify assertiveness as a weakness? As stated in the source researcher Daniel Ames, Ph.D., quoted “When leaders get assertiveness wrong, it’s glaring and obvious, but when they get it right, it seems to disappear." The point of the author is that the study does not advise leaders should act “moderately assertive.” Instead, they suggest a leadership style that is flexible and adaptable, utilizing assertiveness appropriately depending upon the situation. Although this source doesn’t define what does moderately assertive means but the source gives another connecting topic to support the said topic. If you want direct information for assertive leader without too much to read I will require you to read this source.
The Importance of Assertive Leadership by Hsin-Yi Cohen BSc, MA, MSt http://www.leadershipexpert.co.uk/importance-assertive-leadership.html This source is also a very good supporting article for the topic “Group work in professions can be difficult unless there is an assertive leader. Do you agree or disagree? The title The Importance of Assertive Leadership is a good title and catching to eyes if you’re a reader that wants to know the meaning of assertive leader and what characteristics he possess. Hsin-Yi Cohen BSc, MA, MSt the author says In order for a leader to state his personal and group needs in an effective manner, he or she needs to be able to be assertive when required. Assertiveness is an important part of effective communication – it enables others to not only be clear about what you want and where they stand but also gives them an opportunity to modify their behavior or respond with their own needs and ideas. A good leader will know how to use assertiveness to gain respect and authority, without alienating any members of the group or anyone outside the group. Like many leadership skills, assertiveness is something that can be learned and maintained with regular practice. These lines give the answer to the topic that I chose. It’s very positive that a leader is assertive rather than aggressive. The author differentiate assertive and aggressive, with this the reader will have a clearer definition what do assertive and aggressive means. Assertiveness is not about being loud, rude, arrogant or disrespectful of others – rather, it is a direct, honest expression of your own feelings and needs. Unlike aggressiveness, it does not involve hurting another person, whether physically or emotionally, or violating their rights. According to the author assertive behavior – the basic form is simply to stand up for your beliefs, opinions or feelings. However, you can also be assertive in an empathic way, so that you express your feelings and beliefs but relate them sensitively to another individual. Different types of assertive behavior will suit different people and different individuals. However, there are some general guidelines which hold good for all instances – for example, don’t be afraid to set limits and be firm in holding to them; don’t back down at the first instance of pressure from
others . Similarly, don’t be afraid to say “No” – don’t fall into the guilt trap – be honest with others if you are unable or unwilling to take on a responsibility, following through with a project or agree with an opinion. Finally, if you are having trouble showing assertive behavior, trying “rewriting the whole scene” – in other words, picture a time when you weren’t assertive enough and go through it again, imagining what you would have or should have said instead and what the idea assertive response would be. These mental role-plays will help you be more assertive in similar situation in the future. This paragraph gives a strike sense in defining assertive traits. As communicating professionals we need to have these traits. Part C The essay topic that I chose Group work in professions can be difficult unless there is an assertive leader. Do you agree or disagree? My thesis statement is: To give the 5 Behavioral Traits that an Effective Leader must have in the midst of change My five (5) key points first to define a good leader, second to give the five traits of an effective leader, third to differentiate assertive leader and aggressive leader, fourth an actual office situation applying the traits of effective leader and lastly to give a summary and generalization of an effective leader. In the three sources that I have the Leadership Styles for Dealing with People, New Study on Assertiveness and Leadership, the Importance of Assertive Leadership. These sources are very helpful motivation for me. It gives s me more view how a Paralinguistic Professional should have and how an effective leader must consist. In my first source the article is very well organized it has its model of traits and sample of traits as an application. The second source I got a direct idea of an assertive leader. In third source the assertive behavior is clearly discuss with a direct sense and the source also give differentiation of aggressive and assertive. I chose the first source that I have the major basis of my essay plan. To define good characteristics of a leader in a very first strike is a plus point so that the reader would easily get the meaning of what an effective leader is. To give the five traits of a leader is a very nice second step must be done in this section they could find out the important traits that a leader must have. To differentiate assertive and aggressive leader is a helpful tool to. These are the distinct traits that an effective leader must consist (1) Submissive, (2) Caring (Low Assertive), (3) Collaborative (Mid Assertive), (4) Compelling (High Assertive) and (5) Aggressive. In this manner they could figure out what are an effective leader and not so effective leader. In straight connection from my third key point an actual office situation applying the traits of effective leader must followed so that the traits would be much transparent and easily understood. To end my essay a summary and generalization of an effective leader must be at last part. The reader will directly assess everything in all the earlier part of my essay. As a communication professional assertive leadership is better than aggressive leader that’s what I have learn in readings that I made.
