Consider that you have recently joined a multinational organization. You spend the initial few weeks observing the culture of the organization. In this period, you observe that highly rigid and weak culture prevails in this company. For instance, employees never appreciate each other, always try to focus on individual tasks rather than team work, hide information, never trust each other and don’t show willingness to initiate things out of the box. You are hired as a Senior Manager Performance and Planning, you are responsible for the delegation of various tasks, therefore, observing the current behavior of employees and the impact over their performance you look forward to bringing change in the attitudes and behaviors of employees so that openness in culture can be promoted which will eventually boost organizational success.
Q1) What kind of leadership style would you implement to compel employees to be motivated as well as boost performance? What possible strategies will you develop? Justify in the context of the scenario only.
Q2) What power tactics would you apply to persuade people to work collaboratively? Discuss the kind of group tasks that can be planned and assigned at various levels to encourage teamwork and building connection among the junior and senior employees within the organization.
