Consumer Protection, Leadership Models, and Training and Development.
Coleman, Donald G.; Heun, Richard E.
This paper examines several models of leadership style that are widely used in staff development workshops and seminars for managers. The discussion focuses mainly on the implications and possible dangers for training subjects of these models, which include two-factor models, such as those of Barnard and Halpin, and orthogonal grid models, such as those investigated by Blake and Mouton, Brown, and Sergiovanni. These models are frequently used to locate trainees on a matrix that purports to indicate their particular leadership style. The authors argue that while such models are excellent devices for teaching a theoretical concept, they have an emotional impact on trainees that must be considered. Because of this impact, the validity of the measurement instruments should be thoroughly documented before they are used to locate personnel on any leadership matrix. (JG)
