Leadership play a crucial role in every organisation so that it will assist in accomplishing desired goals and objectives in proper manner. Leaders are those person who provide correct guidance to their team members and give advice regarding job and help in reaching targets in less time period. The major motive of leader is to encourage and motivate their employees so that they do not aware about stressed and execute their all task or work in smooth manner (Yukl, 2012). The report is totally based on the leadership in enterprise where different concepts and theories are majorly discussed and analysis of Jeff Bezos' (CEO of Amazon) behaviour of leadership is done. Apart from this, self reflection will leading experience is also described in this project.
Leader is a person who is responsible to lead a team or group of members in order to attain certain objectives or goals. In fact an individual who is leading a unit or specific department is responsible for directing their subordinates, implementing plans, encouraging people, as well as tries to enhance the overall personality of entire team. Being a leader of a large company named as a amazon I am responsible to manage all the business activities which is assigned on me in an efficient manner by satisfying needs of customers as well as employees. In an organization major role which is played by me is that I have to handle or manage all the inventory stock of an association and need to ensure that whole products are properly placed in a warehouse. Thus by accomplishing these activities I have learned number of things which is mentioned as follows:-
Hence, according to above information it has been analysed that I am fully active while managing inventory team because I have gained number of things which is very much indispensable as a leader.
According to me leadership process is not an easy task because it needs to change according to situation in order to acquire high performance at workplace. Basically this process includes five major steps that is discussed as follows:-
Step1: Orientation and commitment:- Initially leader have to make commitment towards their team goals which will take normally one or two days and leader have to learn from an association about high presentation. Along with this they are going to identify the requirement of change in an enterprise (Antonakis and House, 2013.).
Step2: Analysis of business:- In this phase an effective leader will go to assess the entire company in order to design transformation process as per organizational model. Thus, after that they have to systematically analyse seven indispensable components such as; present outcomes, surroundings of business, recent strategy, core process, present structure and coordination or upliftment systems.
Step3: Enhancement of strategies and vision:- In the third step of leadership process, team head have to develop or adjust organizational schemes and direction of a company. Along with this, they need to redefine their current strategies and tries to accomplished number of things during this process such as; need to understand the requirement of current business surrounding, future forecasting, clarification of mission to motivates their employees, identification of key principles by which individuals may conduct themselves etc (Bolman and Deal, 2017).
Step4: Chartering the alteration procedure :- After understanding the company vision and mission its time to identify hidden issues and barriers which affects success of an association. Thus, they need to create a charter, framed expected result and then need to implement changes .
Step5: Integrated management of organizational performance:- At the end of this process leader have to react towards demands and need to make a management plan in order to manage short term and long term performance of selected firm.
Thus, above process shows that if any person is becoming a leader of specific team then they have to follow necessary steps so that they can able to accomplished it assigned task in an appropriate manner.
Coming on my leadership style I am using participative leadership style which is also known as a democratic because in this every person are getting chance to express their opinions without any stress and taking equal part in decision making process (Bryman, 2013). As my experience number of companies are following this strategy at workplace due to its effectiveness and supports in creating friendly relations with employees. Mainly number of reason are available due to which I am choosing this leadership styles that are explained as further:-
Hence it has been analysed that with the use of democratic style of leadership my subordinates become so lenient towards their goals due to which it may disturb the working environment of overall company. Thus, I have to develop number of things in my leading style or behaviour which is highlighted as follows:-
Thus, it has been understood that these above quality needs to be enhanced with the help of impressive action plan which shows an appropriate path of improving my skills (Fahed-Sreih and Morin-Delerm, 2012). Along with this as a leader I need to improve my hidden weakness so that I can manage all the business activities in an efficient manner by thorough various theories proposed by different scientist.
There are different leadership philosophies, concepts and theories of leadership which is developed by different successful leaders and scholars. Jeff Bezos is known as the founder and CEO of Amazon is also famous for his good leadership. He has acquired the idea of doing best leadership from various theories. Some of the important theories of leadership are discussed below :
Fielder has measured leadership style by taking help of LPC scale that is Least Preferred Co- worker Scale. Individual who scores more in this scaling are thought as relationship motivated. While those workers who receives low scores are considered as Task motivated. The core ideas or concepts to contingency theory are determined by three main factors which are described below :
Situational leadership theory : This concept is referring to those leaders who used to follow different life style according to the development and situational level of their workers (Van Wart, 2017). This says that no particular leadership style is best. On the contrary, it depends on the situation and which types of strategies and planning is best suited to a specific task. Goleman theory of situational leadership are stated below :
Jeff Bezos will included all necessary factors in their leadership as well as they can create and develop positive environment in whole organisation. Along with this, this will help in becoming good leader and increasing honour of them in front-most of followers.
By going through all the above based theories of leadership, it can concluded that Jeff Bezoz is a best leader as well as chief executive officer who fall under Behaviour theory as they learns the qualities and attributes of a good team heads by doing hard work and from their working experiences. In addition to this , they also receives training and teaching for becoming a good leader. Thus, this violates the trait theory of leadership as this stated that leaders are inborn.
As per the above mentioned report it can be concluded that leadership play an essential role in functioning of each entity so that leader should be exist to provide correct direction to their employees by show them their fault issues. They also motivate and encourage the employees so that they reach with the target goals and objectives of the organisation. There are various leadership theories and concepts which are given by different authors and successful leaders for make their business better. Jeff Bezos is considered as a leader and he required to follow different types of style of leadership in Amazon that has been discussed in this project report.
