Leadership effectiveness- a multi-factorial model Dr. M. Roussety MBA, M Led, PH

Leadership effectiveness- a multi-factorial model Dr. M. Roussety MBA, M Led, PH | Martial arts | Scoop.it

“Leadership in this new landscape is not about controlling decision making. We don’t have time anymore to control decision making. It’s about creating the right environment. It’s about enablement, empowerment. It’s about guidelines and boundaries and parameters and setting the people free” (Carleton, 2000) and “Business growth and expansion in different parts of the world will increasingly have to be based on alliances, partnerships, joint ventures and all kinds of relations with organizations located in other political jurisdictions” (P. F. Drucker:- Author). As both Carleton and Drucker suggest, with globalization comes organizational challenges such as: - ethnocentric competition, workforce diversity, total quality management practices, customer sovereignty and employee empowerment, yet still amongst the many challenges facing organizations big and small, there is no bigger, no more complex than the need to better understand how organizations can effectively lead themselves through this dynamic and complex environment.

According to Levinson’s Psychological Verities, all human beings differentiate themselves into groups and all groups follow a leader, who is replaced as the organization adapts to changes in its environment (Levinson, 1994); and expressed differently by De Vries et al., (1999:113), “the need for leadership is the extent to which an employee wishes the leader to facilitate the paths towards individual, group, and/or organizational goals”.

The group-level phenomenon is based on the “relational model” that suggests that groups specify norms concerning fairness (Tyler and Lind, 1992). Group membership is a powerful aspect of social life because the group offers more than material rewards. Individuals are strongly affected by identification with groups: - even when that identification is based on minimal common circumstances (Brewer and Kramer, 1986).

 Given those dynamics, individuals (leaders and followers) who voluntarily or as dictated by circumstances, organize themselves in groups do so in search of rewards; in the form of security, status, self-esteem, power, affiliation, and goal achievement. By virtue of the role, the leader assumes a dual symbiotic responsibility to achieve a personal goal and that of the group of followers within the settings of the organization and its environment.
 
Based on the above proposition, it follows that the organizational phenomena concerning leadership effectiveness ought to be examined in context of group dynamics (leader-follower interaction), decision-making under uncertainty, and contextual influence. Given its compelling significance to organization behavioural science,  it is not surprising that this paradigm has advanced the development of prominent theories such as the Average Leadership Style pioneered between the late 1940s and early 1960s (Schriesheim et al.,1999), which  comprises the  Ohio, Michigan and Texas studies (Taylor et al., 1972 and Schriesheim et al., 1995); and Blake and Mouton (1985),  where they argued that  leaders apply consistent behavior styles to all group members. Considerable literary debate also featured other leading models such as, Vertical Dyadic Leadership where behavior style is tailored to in and out groups (Dansereau et al., 1975), Leader-Member Exchange where behaviour style is modified to suit to individual members (Graen et al., 1982), and Contingency  where leadership styles are fixed for given situations (Robbins et al., 2004). Notwithstanding the intellectual determination of scholars, professionals and researchers to refine knowledge about leadership effectiveness, there seems to be a paucity of effort towards a synthesis of these theories, and more particularly towards contemporising a robust and empirical investigation of the synergetic role that leader characteristics, follower characteristics, and situational factors play in leadership effectiveness.

This seems to hold true even for most recent theories that examine the influence processes between leaders and followers, and those that focus on the interaction between leaders and followers. Moreover, the early approaches to leadership theories directed their foci on the identification of leadership traits and behaviours to differentiate effective leaders from others, whereas; Hersey and Blanchard (1974); Fiedler (1978); Vroom-Jago (1988); and House (1996); subsequently postulated the lead role that situational factors play in the determination of leadership effectiveness, and Danserau (1995); and Graen and Uhl-Bien (1995) highlighted the importance of leader and follower relations in the dyadic exchange, inclusive of follower performance and leader-follower compatibility, which according to Byrne (1971); and Tsui and O’Reilly (1989) is influenced by the similarity of attitudes, values and demographic factors.

Consequently, I find it somewhat enigmatic that whilst researching this review, I have been unable to identify any literary work that purports to synthesize traits, behaviours, situational factors, as well as leader and follower relations in one singular leadership construct.
This phenomenon is best captured by Daft and Pirola-Merlo (2009:37), “each theoretical perspective has something to offer, but none of them can, on its own, give a complete understanding of leadership” and reinforced by Bernstein et al., (2006:741), “having personality traits does not guarantee good leadership ability, however people can be effective leaders in one situation but ineffective in another (Chemers, 2000). The reason is that effective leadership also depends on the characteristics of the group members, the task at hand, and most important, the interaction between these factors and the leader’s style”.

Responding to this challenge, in a companion article I address the apparent gap in leadership literature, by presenting a case for the explication of leadership effectiveness by identifying commonalities in prominent leadership theories and then combining this knowledge in one eclectically cohesive construct. More specifically, it is to be noted that the intelligence sought by this review relies heavily on the identification of relationships between variables, antecedent variables and consequences, relating to leaders, followers, and situations. To facilitate this task, information is principally garnered from published work of prominent authors in leadership theory. This article is exploratory, interpretive, and context-bound. It deals with views, opinions, and perceptions of published authors as well as those of the author.

This companion article is organised in four parts, with each part logically progressing discussions, arguments and hypotheses to a valid synthesis.

Part 1 develops a taxonomic model for leader and follower personality and non-biographical dimensions; for Situational Milieu and Leadership Style and presents 8 primary and 12 Sub-Hypotheses for each respectively, culminating in a guiding hypothesis about Effective Leader-Member Relation (PH:9 ELMR).
Part 2 synopsizes the evolution and juxtaposition of prominent leadership theories namely, Trait, Average Leadership Style (ALS), Contingency, and Leader-Member Exchange (LMX); then discusses each of these leadership theories in context of Leader, Follower, and Situational Capital.
Part 3 analyses commonalities of five prominent contingency theories and examines their theoretical construct in context of their contingency set and metacategories of leadership dimensions, to determine congruence with the ELMR hypothesis.

Part 4 reports the findings of the analysis conducted in Part 3 and provides commentary on the implications of these findings on the ELMR hypothesis.

Part 5 concludes the review with a summary of concepts and views articulated, together with a statement regarding the limitations of this review and my recommendations for future research.

Traditional franchise models are dead!

The increasing popularity of on-line businesses and the demise of some big franchise brands have led many franchise commentators to argue that traditional franchising models have reached a degenerative stage and some even reckon that ‘franchising as a business method will need to be dismantled and reconstructed’.

Whilst these views might be true in some instances, they erroneously assume that e-commerce is not franchisable and that it cannot co-exist with traditional bricks and mortar models. Survival of franchising is not the issue, the issue is what type of products and services are still be franchisable and in what format. No dismantling or reconstructing is required as this implies that franchising is either broken or dysfunctional which it clearly is not in either case. What is needed is an intelligent application of franchising theory to the adaptation of e-commerce in order to develop convergent business models. Franchising is still relevant but as many models have evolved in the last fifty years, new ones must now be grafted for the next fifty.



Don’t stick to the old model

The refinement of a new breed of franchise models and the proliferation of traditional formats inevitably present contractual complexities, property and decision rights issues. These challenges are real and yet not well understood by many franchisors and their consultants. In fact one of the main threats to the present and prospective health of existing and new franchise systems is sticking to old model of setting initial, ongoing, and exit fees. Forward-thinking franchisors should urgently review their business/revenue model and explore contemporary structures that blend the latest research in agency and proprietary modelling to maximise participation and goal alignment.

For many franchise systems, their revenue model is often driven by market trends rather than sustainable economics. However, if a franchisor is to successfully attain adequate compensation for substituting company-store risk adjusted cash-flows for franchise-derived cash-flows, it must account for monitoring costs, risk-sharing and efficiency gains in designing its revenue model. Indeed, these three factors affect the level of agency costs (the net gains to the franchisor from franchising as compared to operating company-operated outlets) incurred by the system, and the franchisor’s ability to reward its franchisees. For this condition to hold however, agency costs must be defined in terms of both costs and gains to the franchisor resulting from participating in a franchise relationship. Costs represent the incremental monitoring costs, and pecuniary and non-pecuniary costs attributable to franchisees behaving in a way that is not consistent with the franchisor’s expectations, whilst gains comprise explicit and implicit value generated by risk-sharing and efficiencies.



Trade-offs are necessary

It goes to reason that a franchisor should consider a franchise arrangement only when the expected returns from franchise relationships equal or exceed that which could be achieved by operating a bunch of company-owned businesses. Franchising may allow the franchisor to lower its monitoring costs, but it may have to trade off any gains with franchisee-generated problems, such as inefficient investments and free-riding. In any case, as long as monitoring costs do not rise, any efficiency gains delivered to the system by franchisees increasing revenues beyond that which would be expected of company-owned stores would justify the case for franchising. These conditions are captured in economic equilibrium where the present values of cash-flows generated by each franchisee equal the initial investment required to generate these cash-flows and when the net present values of the franchisor cash-flows equal those of that franchise business when operated as a company-owned business and the pre and post agency monitoring costs are equal.

Equilibrium is a goal not the purpose

Whilst economic equilibrium has great appeal, in fact it is more of an ideal than the deal. Even though a franchise system may not be in equilibrium, it does not mean that the franchisor is dissatisfied with the business. Economic equilibrium is a goal, not the purpose. Best practice franchisors should set a level of operational efficiency that is tolerable and expected given the environmental forces facing the business, and the level of agency costs required to power the system’s governance structure.

If your franchise system is not delivering what you expect and you want to test whether you are operating at economic equilibrium, contact DST for a free preliminary review.
