Executive Summary The purpose of this exercise is to introduce the relationship of selecting, evaluating, building and hiring the right employees and leaders as one of the factors to establish to pull through a team strategy, increase company performance and develop organizational effectiveness. I will try to explain each of the key roles that will affect a business success in its industry. One of which is selecting the right leader and what is the best fit 'type' of leader. It will also include how some companies empower their employees better in their tasks. The document will also help how strategic performance management can take place at top management, middle management, or strategic operations levels, and their impact on business profitability, company competitiveness and organizational stability and growth. II. Leaders in the Organization A. Theories and Styles of Leadership 1. Leadership theories Many theories about leadership tend to focus on the question 'What is it that makes one leader more effective than another?' The hope is that by observing carefully enough how successful leaders operate, it will be possible to arrive at a theory which will either enable others to be more effective leaders, or at least enable organizations' to select better leaders. These theories of leadership fall into three broad categories: trait theories, style theories and contingency theories. I'll examine each of these in turn. a) Trait theories Trait theories are based on the assumption that the determining factor in an effective leader is a set of personal characteristics.

Analysis and Conclusion The women who exclude themselves from construction lack political will inside and outside the industry that creates obstacles in addition to the more general gender stereotyping that underpins existing gender identities. More optimistically, they suggest that once more women are involved in the industry, the environment will become more female-friendly. Quite how this is to be realized remains less clear. V. Behavioural Strategy A. Delegation Techniques Key Messages: * Make sure you are delegating rather than dumping * The most successful delegators have regular milestones meetings * Ensure people have the resources and authority they need to successfully accomplish the task Successful Delegation is one of the most powerful leadership and coaching tools of the high performance leader. It is far more than a way of getting people to do the things you don't like or don't have the time to get to. For Successful Delegation Follow these Six Steps: Step One: Select The Task When determining the tasks and activities that could be handed across to others, you can choose to delegate either one-off tasks/projects or recurring tasks/projects. Some ideas are, tasks that - * You used to do before you assumed your new role (comfort zone) * People in your team have more experience with * Aren't in your core competency * Provide valuable experience and will develop bench-strength in your team * Will engage and energize your team members * You dislike and that someone else in your team loves Step Two: Select The Person When delegating work it must be something that challenges the team member by providing added responsibility and higher proficiency. ...read more.
