Leader-Member Relations 2. Task Structure 3.

LPC instructions are not clear – leaders are unsure how to choose a least preferred coworker Also fails to explain what to do when there is a mismatch between the leader and the situation in the workplace ConsPath Goal Theory : Path Goal Theory Path Goal theory is about how leaders motivate subordinates to accomplish designated goals The stated goal of leadership is to enhance employee performance and employee satisfaction by focusing on employee motivation Emphasizes the relationship between the leader’s style and characteristics of the subordinates and the work setting The leader must use a style that best meets the subordinates motivational needsPath-Goal Theory: Path-Goal TheoryPowerPoint Presentation: Leadership Behaviors Directive leadership Supportive Leadership Participative Leadership Achievement-Oriented LeadershipPowerPoint Presentation: Subordinate Characteristics Need for affiliation Preferences for structure Desires of control Self-perceived level of task abilityEvaluation: Evaluation Pros Helps understand how leader behavior effects subordinates satisfaction and work performance Deals directly with motivation – one of the only theories to address this Provides a very practical model – make a clear path and follow itPowerPoint Presentation: Cons This is a very complex theory that incorporates many aspects of leadership Research only partially supports the theory Fails to explain adequately the relationship between leader behavior and subordinate motivation Treats leadership as a one way street, places a majority of the responsibility on the leader You do not have the permission to view this presentation.
