Leadership Style & Addressing Conflict
Application: Leadership Style and Addressing Conflict
Addressing conflict takes strategy and skill. In Week 6, you completed the “Types of Leadership and Patterns of Management” interactive graphic in order to get a sense of your leadership style. Your leadership style influences the way you make decisions and use strategies to address conflict. For example, if your leadership style emphasizes motivation, you are likely to employ motivation to work with staff and address conflict. How you address conflict provides insight into how you might execute your role as a human services administrator.
For this Application Assignment, select an organization with which you are associated or one with which you are familiar. Revisit the “Types of Leadership and Patterns of Management” tool you completed in Week 6. Think about how your leadership style would influence how you might address conflict in the organization you selected.
The assignment (2–3 pages):
•Briefly describe your leadership style and the organization you selected.
•Based on your leadership style, explain how you might address current or potential conflict in the organization you selected. Be specific.
•Describe any limitations you might have in addressing conflict.
•Explain how you might overcome any limitations you have in addressing conflict and executing your role as a human services administrator.
