GM503 PUG Leaders and Followers Interactions & LMX Theory Questions

ALL WORK MUST BE ORIGINAL. NO PLAIGIARISM AND USE PEER REVIEWED RESOURCES

1.

Previous theories reviewed in your text have approached leadership from the perspective of the leader (their traits, skills, and style) or from the perspective of the context of the follower (situational leadership, contingency, and path-goal theory). LMX focuses on the interactions between leaders and followers. An emphasis in LMX is leadership making. How valid is LMX theory? What value does it add to leadership studies?

In Chapter 8, Kouzes and Posner (2017) state “Despite how clearly you see challenge as an opportunity, how focused you can be, or how driven you are to succeed, there will be setbacks” (p. 180). They then go on to share that “Repeatedly, people in our studies tell us how mistakes and failure have been crucial to their success both personally and professionally” (p.181) share an experience, either personal or professional, that you considered a complete failure at the time. Looking back, what were the contributing factors to the failure? What important lessons did you learn based on this experience? How have you applied the lessons learned from this situation? Finally, if you could go back and do it over again, would you do it differently if it meant that you would have to sacrifice the knowledge gained?
