in which one person can enlist the aid and support of others in the accomplishment of a common task." Definitions more inclusive of followers have also emerged. Alan Keith stated that, "Leadership is ultimately about creating a way for people to contribute to making something extraordinary happen." Tom DeMarco says that leadership needs to be distinguished from posturing. Leadership remains one of the most relevant aspects of the organizational context. However, defining leadership has been challenging and definitions can vary depending on the situation. According to Ann Marie E. McSwain , Assistant Professor at ...

Leadership Professor: Financial crisis and leadership
The current financial crisis provides some incredible examples of leadership -- especially the challenges and unintended consequences of action. The situation faced by then Treasure Secretary Henry Paulson represents some of those challenges. A recent article in Vanity Fair (as well as other sources including PBS Frontline Series - Inside The Meltdown) paints him as a reluctant government interventionist. Here is a link to the Vanity Fair story that was provided to me by Mike Nothum a student in my MBA class: Despite the still unknown consequences of these decisions, we can begin to see some of the short term consequences, as ... market research, surveys and trends
looking for a cool doctoral seminar for fall?
My name is James Douglas Orton. I started this blog in December 2004 as a laboratory environment that I can use to keep in touch with my doctoral students in George Washington University's Executive Leadership Doctoral Program, my friends within the national security community, and my colleagues in the field of High-Reliability Leadership, Organizations, and Strategies (HRLOS). I'm drafting my syllabus for my Fall doctoral seminar here at GWU and could use a little help from my former students -- I know this is rough but I want to force myself to get things "out there" once a day. Any comments? Course ... market research, surveys and trends

The Role Of Chance In Employee Disciplinary Decisions: Squaring ...
The attribution theory of leadership has been utilized to provide insight into a variety of supervisory decision-making situations, including performance appraisal and pay raise decisions (Green and Mitchell, 1980; Feldman, 1981), as well as disciplinary decisions (Rosen and Jerdee, 1974). In this latter area, attribution theory hypothesizes that as a supervisor perceives an unwanted outcome to be caused by some characteristic of the subordinate (that is, an "internal" cause such as carelessness or insufficient effort) the more likely the subordinate will be judged responsible, and the more likely some action will be ... industry trends, business articles and survey research

It would be hard to say I’m unbiased in recommending a book by veteran education journalist and Ed Trust senior writer Karin Chenoweth.

Behavioral theories suggest that personality is a result of interaction between the individual and the environment. Behavioral theorists study observable and measurable behaviors, rejecting theories that take internal thoughts and feelings into account. Psychodynamic Theories Psychodynamic theories of personality are heavily influenced by the work of  SIGMUND FREUD   , and emphasize the influence of the unconscious mind and childhood experiences on personality. Freud believed the three components of personality were the id, the ego, and the superego. The id is responsible for all needs and urges, while the ...
What is your own, personalized definition of leadership?
I think servant leadership…as with Robert Greenleaf’s work is a big part of it…doing away with agendas and moving toward “enabling” others. Leading is…helping. Leadership means never expecting more from subordinates than you are willing to give. Inspiring others to succeed, rather than simply ordering them to do a task.

I once heard that leadership is the ability to get people to do things they don’t want to do. I’d say leadership is the ability ...
