In the past, many business leaders led by blunt authority, relying heavily on the power of their positions to motivate their employees. This authoritarian leadership style rarely produces top results in today’s business climate. Instead, modern business leaders seek to inspire loyalty and hard work in their employees by modeling these behaviors themselves.
This week, you will continue to explore concepts related to “organic growth” strategies, focusing on effective leadership as a key element of successful implementation of strategy in general.
Review the Learning Outcomes for this week, and based on those objectives and your analysis of the readings and video segment, respond to either “a” or “b” below, making direct references to several of the week’s required or optional readings:
a. Identify the major internal elements that shape business strategy options and performance for a selected business with which you are familiar.
b. Outline general issues of culture and leadership, as they affect strategy formation and implementation. Use the example of a selected business with which you are familiar.
Note: Be sure to read the special posting and response guidelines below.
Post your response by Day 3. Before posting, please review the “Discussion posting guidelines” under Course Assignments in the Syllabus.
