A minimum of for Policy Exception only. As you can see, followers play an active, vital role in the success of any group, organization, or society. They are neither passive nor subservient. We also believe that effective leadership is based on service, not hierar- chy. In our discussions of transformational leadership in chapter 4 and ethical leadership in chapter 11, we suggest that truly great leaders serve rather than rule because they recognize that those whom they lead entrust them with leadership responsibilities.
In reality followership and leadership are two separate concepts, two sepa- rate roles. Neither role corners the market on brains, motivation, tal- ent, or action. Either role can result in an award-winning performance or a flop. The greatest successes require that the people in both roles turn in top-rate performances. We must have great leaders and great followers. From our perspective, leadership is first, and foremost, a communication- based activity.
Leaders spend much of their time shaping messages that are then presented to a variety of follower, constituent, and stakeholder groups. Certainly political leaders, executives, coaches, educators, and religious figures alike all share this common charac- teristic—the higher the level of leadership, the higher the demand for com- munication competence. Willingness to Communicate Leadership effectiveness depends on our willingness to interact with others. Those who engage in skillful communication are more likely to influence others.
Directions: Below are 20 situations in which a person might choose to communicate or not to communicate. Presume you have completely free choice. Indicate in the space at the left what per- centage of the time you would choose to communicate in each type of situation.
The WTC is designed to indicate how willing you are to communicate in a variety of contexts, with different types of receivers. The higher your WTC total score, the more willing you are to com- municate in general. Similarly, the higher your given subscore for a type of context or audience, the more willing you are to communicate in that type of context or with that type of audience.
Scoring: The WTC permits computation of one total score and seven subscores. The sub- scores relate to willingness to communicate in each of four common communication contexts and with three types of audiences. To compute your scores, merely add your scores for each item and divide by the number indicated below. McCroskey, Richmond, and their colleagues report that overall scores on the WTC scale are directly related to communication behavior. Individuals with high WTC scores communicate more frequently and for longer periods of time than people with low WTC scores.
Increased communication activity, in turn, leads to a number of positive outcomes in the United States, a society that val- ues individualism and assertiveness see chapter Speaking up is not viewed as favorably in other cultures, such as some Asian societies, that put more emphasis on the needs of the group as a whole. They also stay with organizations longer than their quiet colleagues. There are a number of reasons why we may be reluctant to interact with others: we may have inherited a tendency to be shy, introverted, and anxious. Subscore Desired Scoring Formula Group discussion Add scores for items 8, 15, and 19; then divide by 3.
Meetings Add scores for items 6, 11, and 17; then divide by 3. Interpersonal conversations Add scores for items 4, 9, and 12; then divide by 3. Public speaking Add scores for items 3, 14, and 20; then divide by 3. Stranger Add scores for items 3, 8, 12, and 17; then divide by 4. Acquaintance Add scores for items 4, 11, 15, and 20; then divide by 4. Friend Add scores for items 6, 9, 14, and 19; then divide by 4. To compute the total WTC scores, add the subscores for stranger, acquaintance, and friend. Then divide by 3.
This perceived deficiency becomes a vicious cycle. We can reverse the cycle by developing our skills. Skill development builds confidence and encourages us to talk. When we communicate, we practice our skills and increase our effectiveness. In one study, for example, students enrolled in an introductory public speaking course significantly increased their willingness to give speeches during the semester.
Those who were the least willing to give speeches at the beginning of the class saw the most rapid improvement. Storytelling as Leadership One of the primary ways in which leaders shape reality is through storytell-. Leaders tell their stories in a variety of informal and formal contexts, from conversations over a cup of coffee to formal presentations.
Through stories leaders can connect themselves with others, building strong relationships and a sense of affiliation. Stories carry multiple messages. Among other functions, they reflect important values, inspire, and describe appropriate behavior. Further, when leaders tell compelling stories they influence others to pick up the same story line, thus extending the narra- tive. This process of retelling stories often in a revised form by those who fol- low is part of the cocreation of meaning that is central to storytelling.
Royal Dutch Shell Group offers a good example. Tales were told for years of profitable growth and technical leadership. These stories were then retold throughout the company across sites in more than countries. Denning proposes that there are eight general categories of stories that leaders can use to assist in achieving their goals. Sparking action. These stories describe how a successful change was implemented in the past, allowing listeners to imagine how such a change might work in their situation. For example, as program director of knowledge management for the World Bank in the mids, Denning struggled to get his colleagues to see the importance of the need for a central repository for the information scattered throughout the organization.
He framed the need for collecting and sharing information at the World Bank by describing how technology was changing the landscape of our planet. Asking effective questions is a critical skill for leaders. In his book, Leading with Questions, profes- sor and consultant Michael Marquardt builds a case for exercising leadership through questioning.
To discover how successful leaders use inquiries, Marquardt interviewed 22 leaders from around the world who are known for their questioning abilities. Both groups and individuals benefit as a result. Questions promote organizational learning; improve collective problem solving and deci- sion making; produce greater adaptability; energize followers; encourage teamwork; and foster innovation. Individuals working in a questioning climate experience greater self-awareness, self- confidence, openness, and personal flexibility.
They become better listeners; are more comfort- able expressing and managing conflict; develop keener insight into organizational dynamics and relationships; and demonstrate stronger commitment to learning and personal development. Unfortunately, leaders are often quick to provide answers instead of asking questions, based in part on their belief that followers are looking to them for solutions. When leaders do ask ques- tions, they may put others on the defensive. Moving from judgmental questions to productive ones takes a shift in mind-set as well as behavior.
Leaders need to begin with a commitment to learn rather than to judge. They should frame questions in a nonthreatening manner to express curiosity and to open dialogue. The questioning leader should allow the other person enough time to reflect and to respond and show genuine interest in the reply.
Finally, it is critical to follow up on information and concerns. The story he told involved a health worker in in a remote village in Zam- bia who logged on to the website of the Centers for Disease Control and Pre- vention in Atlanta, Georgia, and got an answer to a question on how to treat malaria. When this story was added to the presentation, audience members were able to visualize how the information collected in their organization might be used. Communicating who you are. These stories reveal your identity to an audi- ence, building trust and creating a connection.
Political leaders such as Barack Obama, for example, write books, maintain websites, and give speeches designed to present a desired image of themselves to the electorate. Leadership is personal. Do the people you lead know who you are, what you care about, and why they ought to be following you?
Communicating the brand. These organizational stories are designed to communicate brand image to customers. Cosmetic retailer The Body Shop cre- ated a global brand without using conventional advertising. Brand identity was communicated through the stories of the company founder, the late Anita Rod- dick, and through commitment to a model of commerce-with-a-conscience.
Transmitting values. Sinegal, the founder and retired CEO of the company, took only a modest salary and spent much of his time on the road. While visiting up to half a dozen Costco stores a day, he preached his philosophy of loyalty to his customers and to his employees. Read the case study in box 1. Jim Sinegal, cofounder and the recently retired CEO at Costco, began his career at age 18 unloading mattresses in a month-old venture called Fed-Mart. After several acquisitions and start-ups, Fed-Mart morphed into Costco in the early s. Sinegal believes that employees should be paid fair wages for their valuable contributions to the organization.
The average Costco warehouse employee earns significantly more than at other warehouse merchandisers. As Sinegal explains, there is a real business advantage in treating employees well. Sinegal also took an unorthodox view on his own compensation. He led from the road, hopping on the corporate jet and visiting up to half a dozen Costco stores a day, including the grand openings of all new store loca- tions. Costco employees gush about the family atmosphere, and why not? This story is used as a teaching tool at Costco to encourage others to hold fast to the company philosophy.
Have you ever been involved with an organization where the CEO had a strong or weak presence? What was the impact of having regular interaction or a lack of interaction with this individual? Do you think that Costco is too generous to employees and not generous enough to stockholders? If so, what was the impact of this story? Fostering collaboration. These stories encourage people to work together by generating a narrative to illustrate common concerns and goals. As exem- plified in the case study in box 1. Stories are frequently used to rein- force this collaborative culture.
One such story is that of a Southwest Airlines pilot who quickly exited his flight after arrival only to return a short time later for preflight checks for his return trip. Where had he been? Getting a quick cup of coffee? No, he had climbed in the front bin of the aircraft on a cold and windy day to unload all of the mail and freight—with no gloves, knee pads, or coat—while the other agents off-loaded the bags in the back. Taming the grapevine. These stories highlight the incongruity between rumors and reality.
For example, one might deal with a false rumor of immi- nent corporate-wide reorganization by jokingly recounting how difficult it is to work out the seating chart at the executive committee meetings. It is impor- tant to be careful with these types of stories as mean-spirited humor can gen- erate a well-deserved backlash and the denial of a rumor that turns out to be true can have a devastating impact on credibility. Sharing knowledge. These stories focus on problems and show, in detail, how corrections were made and why the solution worked.
Many organizations use an after-action review AAR in this manner. AARs are assessments con- ducted after a project or major activity that allow employees and leaders to explore what happened and why. They may be thought of as a professional dis- cussion of an event that enables employees to understand why things hap- pened during the progression of the process and to learn from that experience. AARs can be useful in a variety of situations, including: following the introduc- tion of a new product line or computer system upgrade, after a busy holiday season in a retail store, or after a major training activity or a change in proce- dures.
The discussion during the AAR allows leaders to use sharing knowledge stories to improve subsequent organizational responses to similar situations. Leading people into the future. These stories evoke images of a desired future. Often such stories provide limited detail while encouraging listeners to imagine what the future might be. There are many fine historical examples of such sto- ries, but none, perhaps, had more impact on twentieth century life in the United States than Martin Luther King, Jr.
Emotional Communication Competencies The rational dimension of leadership is critical. In the chapters to come,. Forgetting the emotional side of leadership, however, would be a mistake. Effective leaders are also skilled at sharing and responding to emotions. For example, they know how to communicate affection, liking, and excitement to followers. In addition, they know how to channel their emotions in order to achieve their objectives and to maintain friendly group relations. Neal Ashkanasy and Peter Jordan argue that successful leaders effectively utilize emotions at five different levels of the organization.
At this level the focus is on how leaders experience and respond to emotions. During the course of a day, leaders must cope with a variety of events beyond their control rising and falling stock prices, customer feedback, news stories that generate positive and negative responses. Effective emotional leaders communicate confidence and stability in the face of these emotional ups and downs.
Level 2 is between persons. Leaders differ in emotional intelligence EI , which is the ability to perceive, respond to, and express emotions. Level 3 is the interpersonal level, which is concerned with interaction within dyads in the organization. Effective leaders use emotional displays to accom- plish tasks. For example, an instructor may make supportive comments to stu- dents when they feel overwhelmed by assignments but later express disappointment about the results of one test to motivate class members to study harder for the next exam.
In addition to employing emotional expres- sions to achieve goals, successful leaders use positive, supportive displays to manage relationships and to build trust. Level 4 describes the group level. Through their example, they help spread emotions like happiness or sadness throughout the group. Formal leaders exert direct influence on moods. For example, groups accomplish more when their appointed leaders are in a positive frame of mind.
The affective tone of the group as a whole improves when formal leaders develop positive emotional relationships with individual group members. Level 5 is the organizational level. Effective leaders at this level help create an emotional tone for the entire organization. They realize that there may be times when negative feelings should be expressed. For instance, employees under particularly high levels of stress may need to voice their frustrations.
Unfortunately, some proponents of emotional leadership appear to over- state its importance. They go so far as to argue that nearly all of the competen- cies that account for executive success are emotional rather than cognitive in nature. For instance, some researchers identify conflict management and influence as emotional skills, but we consider them to be largely rational leadership communication abilities. Striking a balance between logic and emotion is safer than making one more important than the other. When it comes to leadership, both are essen- tial. To avoid making a hasty decision in a crisis, leaders must exercise a variety of cognitive skills, such as rejecting their faulty beliefs and assumptions, gathering facts, identify- ing stakeholders, soliciting a broad range of opinions, keeping records, and perspective taking.
At the same time, they must employ such emotional skills as managing stress, overcoming mental and physical fatigue, and resisting group pressures. The following set of emotional competencies demonstrates that the suc- cess of followers and leaders depends on how well are they able to integrate emotion and cognition. Skillfully blending feeling and thinking requires the five skills listed below. Perception, appraisal, and expression of emotion.
Emotional intelligence begins with the ability to identify, evaluate, and then express emotional states. While most of us are not this insensitive, we frequently suffer from emotional blind spots. A leader who had to overcome her lack of emotional intelligence in order to succeed is described in the Leadership on the Big Screen fea- ture at the end of the chapter.
Attending to the emotions of others. Those in a leadership role must under- stand the feelings of followers in order to connect with them. Instead, he will appear out of touch. Emotional facilitation of thinking. Emotional states impact decision-making styles. Good moods facilitate creative thinking while sad moods slow the decision-making process and encourage more attention to detail. Both emotional states have a role to play in problem solving.
Some problems require intuitive, broad thinking; others demand a more linear, logical approach. Emotionally intelligent leaders know how to match the mood with the problem. Further, they recognize the dangers of ignoring risks when in an optimistic frame of mind, or of being too critical when feel- ing pessimistic. Using emotions to facilitate thinking also means chan- neling feelings in order to reach goals. For example, moderate fear of failure can spur us to prepare before making a presentation. Remember- ing past successes can reduce our anxiety before we deliver the speech.
Understanding and analyzing emotional information and employing emotional knowledge. This cluster of competencies links symbols to emotions. Leaders must be able to label what they feel and recognize the relation- ship between that label and other related terms. Irritation and annoyance lead to anger and. Understanding this fact can empower leaders.
A supervisor may decide to postpone a meeting with a dis- agreeable employee, for instance, when she senses that her irritation with this individual could escalate into unwanted anger. Recognizing how emotions blend together is also important. Surprise is one example of an emotion that rarely stands alone. When we feel surprised, we gen- erally experience some other emotion—perhaps happiness, disappoint- ment, or anger—at the same time.
Regulation of emotion. The last component of emotional intelligence puts knowledge into action. This set of competencies enables leaders to cre- ate the feelings they desire in themselves and in others. Emotionally skilled leaders know how to maintain positive moods and how to repair negative ones. To do so, they employ such tactics as avoiding unpleas- ant situations, engaging in rewarding tasks, and creating a comfortable work environment. In addition, they can step back and evaluate their feelings to determine if their responses in a situation were appropriate.
Such evaluation can encourage them to remain calm instead of getting upset and to be more supportive instead of only focusing on the task. Effective leaders also help others maintain and improve their moods. They use these skills to create cohesive groups and to inspire and moti- vate followers.
Humans are not, in any practical sense, predominantly rational beings, nor are they predominantly emotional beings. They are both. Playing to a Packed House: Leaders as Impression Managers From a communication standpoint, leaders are made, not born. We can compare the leadership role to a part played on stage to illustrate how effective communication skills translate into effective leadership. Proponents of this perspective argue that, like actors in a drama, people create meaning and influence others through their performances. The date is a performance that may take place on any number of stages: the dance floor, the living room, the movie theater, the football game.
The actors the couple prepare in their dressing rooms at home before the performance and may return to the same locations for a critique session after the date ends. To see how impression management works, change one aspect of your usual communication and watch how others respond. If friends have told you that you seem unfriendly because you are quiet when meeting new people, try being more assertive the next time you meet strangers at a party.
If you make a conscious effort to greet others, introduce yourself, and learn more about the others at the gathering, you may shake your aloof, unfriendly image. Leaders also engage in impression management to achieve their goals. Important clues to how we can shape the impressions others have of us can be gleaned from the examples of outstanding leaders. Charismatic or transformational leaders are skilled actors who create the impression that they are trustworthy, effective, morally worthy, innovative, and skilled. Many people are uncomfortable with the idea of impression management.
They equate playing a role with being insincere, since true feelings and beliefs might be hidden. They note that far too often fellow students and coworkers get ahead by acting like chameleons, changing their behaviors to conform to the wishes of whatever group in which they find themselves. As we saw in our earlier discussion of narcissistic and Machiavellian leaders, these are very real dangers. Self-promotion and ingratiation can trump competence and hard work. However, research suggests that individuals typically use impression management to project a public image that is congruent with their self-con- cepts.
Further, impression management is part of every human interaction. Others form impressions of us, whether we are intentional about our behaviors or not. Frequently, we have no choice but to play many roles. We are forced into performances as job applicants, stu- dents, dating partners, and leaders each day. The real problem is that we often mismanage the impressions we make. Our behaviors may make us appear dull or untrustworthy when we really are interesting and honest. Some fear that leaders can manipulate impressions to mislead the group.
Yet, impression management is essential for achieving worthy objectives. The state human services director who inspires her employees to meet the needs of more clients through her use of impres- sion management is helping the disadvantaged, making better use of state funds, and boosting the morale of her organization. Because impression management can be used to further group goals or to subvert them, it should be judged by its end products.
Ethical impression management meets group wants and needs and, in the ideal, spurs the group to reach higher goals. Organizational impression experts Paul Rosenfeld, Rob- ert Giacalone, and Catherine Riordan offer the following guidelines for deter-. Historians, philosophers, and social. What makes us unique as humans is our ability to create and manipulate symbols—abstract, arbitrary representations of reality.
Four primary definitional themes have emerged in the leadership literature: 1 leadership is about who you are; 2 leadership is about how you act; 3 leadership is about what you do; and 4 leadership is about how you work with others. We offer the follow- ing communication-based definition of leadership: Leadership is human symbolic communication that modifies the attitudes and behaviors of oth- ers in order to meet shared group goals and needs.
However, leading differs sig- nificantly from managing when it comes to creating an agenda, developing a human network for achieving the agenda, and executing the agenda. While the manager is more absorbed in the status quo, the leader is more con- cerned with the ultimate direction of the group. Bad leadership is the product of selfishness, cognitive errors, and external forces.
Destruc- tive leaders can be classified as incompetent, rigid, intemperate, callous, cor-. In the organizational context, destructive leadership behaviors are directed at followers, the organization, or at both. Leaders exert a greater degree of influence and followers have more respon- sibility for carrying out the work. Followers are playing an increasingly important role in modern society.
Think of yourself as a leader-follower, routinely shift- ing between leader and follower functions. It is also true that the more leadership responsibility you have, the more your job will focus on communication. Story- telling is a valuable supplement to abstract reasoning and analysis. Impor- tant types of stories include those that: 1 spark action, 2 communicate who you are, 3 communicate the brand image to customers, 4 transmit organizational values, 5 foster collaboration, 6 tame the grapevine by pointing out the disconnect between rumors and reality, 7 share knowl- edge about problem solving, and 8 lead people into the future.
They demonstrate five emotional competences: 1 perception, appraisal, and expression of emotion; 2 attending to the emotions of oth- ers; 3 emotional facilitation of thinking; 4 understanding and analyzing emotional information and employing that information; and 5 regulation of emotion.
Generate positive images through the use of framing, scripting, staging, and performing exemplification, promotion, facework, and ingratiation. Beneficial impression management promotes positive interpersonal relationships and cooperation; accurately portrays people, events, or products; and facilitates effective decision making.

Consider the stories you have heard from leaders in the past. Identify individuals you believe have low or high emotional intelligence. Dis- cuss what you feel the impact of these ratings is on leadership effectiveness. Analyze the impression management strategies of a well-known leader. What image does this individual create? Written by Charles Choi, George Fox University Dealing with groups of followers from a variety of cultural backgrounds is. Leadership effectiveness increasingly depends on intercultural competency. For example, leadership practices considered effective in an individualistic society might be rejected by employees who.
Such is the case in South Korea. Confucianism heavily influences Korean culture, and this code of ethical behavior places high value on the maintenance of harmony and trust as the basis of social interaction. As a result, Korean businesses are often marked by authoritarian and paternalistic leadership, hierarchical structure, a bureaucratic managerial style, and accep- tance of large differences in power and status.
One group of researchers identified the following as key organizational leadership competencies in Korea:. They also found a clear distinction between executive-level and middle-level management, with a different set of competencies required for each group. In South Korea, executive leadership is exclusively engaged in developing and communicating a vision and strategy and in initiating and leading organiza- tional change. Middle-level managers, on the other hand, are responsible for operations and social interaction with subordinates.
To succeed, they must demonstrate relationship competencies—managing performance, coaching fol- lowers, building teamwork, and providing a role model to follow. To be effective in Korea and other cultures, leaders and followers must set aside their preconceived notions about how to communicate within the organizational setting. Only then can they begin to develop the competencies they need to succeed in a multicultural world. Born with autism, Grandin must cope with the ignorance of the medical community her pediatrician recommends that she be institutionalized for life , her lack of social and emotional intelligence, the prej- udice of faculty and fellow students, and sexism.
Using her unique ability to see in pictures, as well as her insight into animal behavior, Grandin develops a more humane livestock handling system that is now used in approximately half of the meat plants in North America. She also goes on to earn her doctorate, to teach at Colorado State University, and to serve as an expert in autism education.

The Dimensions of Leadership Communication Style Think of the leaders with whom you have worked in the past. Chances are. The lead- ers you enjoyed working with were most likely those who created a productive and satisfying work climate. Under their guidance, you probably accomplished a great deal and had a pleasant and memorable experience. One factor that contributes to variations in leader effectiveness is commu- nication style. Leadership communication style is a relatively enduring set of communicative behaviors in which a leader engages when interacting with fol- lowers.
The communication style a leader selects contrib- utes to the success or failure of any attempt to exert influence. To explore your own leadership style preferences, complete the self-assessment in box 2. Directions: Read the twelve statements below. For each statement indicate your level of agreement. A leader should leave it 1 2 3 4 5 up to followers to initiate informal, day-to-day communication. Researchers have identified a number of leadership communication styles in the past half-century. These varying styles can be pared down to two pri- mary models of communication: one model compares authoritarian, democratic, and laissez-faire styles of leadership communication; a second model contrasts task and interpersonal leadership communication.
A leader should encourage 1 2 3 4 5 followers to initiate decision making without first seeking approval. A leader should closely 1 2 3 4 5 monitor rules and regulations—punishing those who break the rules. A leader should provide 1 2 3 4 5 broad goals and leave decisions regarding the methods for achieving the goals to followers. Scoring: Tally your score on each of the leadership communication styles listed below by totaling your points as indicated. The higher your score, the greater your preference for a given leadership communication style. An unequal distribution of scores generally indicates a stronger preference for a certain style.
Relatively equal scores indicate a more balanced preference of styles. This likely indicates a blended approach in which styles are based on situational factors. Kurt Lewin, Ronald Lippitt, and Ralph White undertook one of the earliest investigations of leadership communication style. Each of these styles of communication has unique features that affect how leaders interact with followers. The authoritarian leader maintains strict con- trol over followers by directly regulating policy, procedures, and behavior. Authoritarian leaders create distance between themselves and their followers as a means of emphasizing role distinctions.
Many authoritarian leaders believe that followers would not function effectively without direct supervi- sion. The authoritarian leader generally feels that people left to complete work on their own will be unproductive. Examples of authoritarian communicative behavior include a police officer directing traffic, a teacher ordering a student to do his or her assignment, and a supervisor instructing a subordinate to clean a workstation.
Democratic leaders engage in supportive communication that facilitates interaction between leaders and followers. The leader adopting the democratic communication style encourages follower involvement and participation in the determination of goals and procedures. Democratic leaders assume that fol- lowers are capable of making informed decisions. The democratic leader does not feel intimidated by the suggestions provided by followers but believes that the contributions of others improve the overall quality of decision making. A group leader soliciting ideas from group members, a teacher asking students to suggest the due date for an assignment, and a district manager asking a salesperson for recommendations regarding the display of a new product are examples of democratic communicative behavior.
