Introduction

This is a comparison of the articles on Transformational Leadership in the Public Sector: Does Structure Matter by Wright and Pandey to that of Transactional and Transformational Leadership Styles on the Organizational Commitment and Job Satisfaction of Customer Contact Personnel, by Emery & Barker to that of, The reality of Web-Based Interaction in an Egyptian Distance Education Course by Alaa Sadik.
The article by Wright and Pandey outlined their view of leadership that is defined as transformational. Their structure of better performing bureaucracies has support of an elite level of transformational leadership.

The other article to be reviewed focuses on transformational leadership by investigating transactional outcomes of leadership styles with managers. This article by (Barker& Emery, 2007), further details how employee organizational commitment and job satisfaction had a direct correlation to transformational and transactional style of their mangers.
The third article by Alaa Sadik focused on the Reality of Web-Based Interaction in an Egyptian Distance Education Course (2008). Sadik focused on instruction and tools to provide improved interaction of students in an asynchronous learning environment.
A comparison of the research questions posed for the studies
Research questions in the three articles were presented by the authors. The first article questioned the reported practice of transformational leadership behavior being high or low depending on the support of higher levels of transformational leadership in those organizations. Which differs from another article on transformational leadership by Emery and Barker(2007) in that it emphasizes transformational leadership's goals are to align the goals of the workers, who…...

...Comparisons Of Leadership Styles Timothy Burkeen ADM515 Week 4 Written Assignment Abstract: Among the many leadership theories that have been proposed, relationship oriented styles and those that resonant with people and inspire them are the most effective in gaining widespread acceptance and support. This paper discusses the participative leadership approach and the transformational approach along with a comparison and contrast of Machiavellia's approach. Introduction There are many definitions of styles of Leadership. In his book Primal Leadership, Goleman offers that there are six styles of leaders; Visionary, Coaching, Affliliative, Democratic, Pacesetting, and Commanding. (Goleman, 2002) He further categorizes these styles as either resonant or dissonant. Goleman uses anecdotal stories and case studies to emphasize how effective leaders use emotional intelligence and building relationships to influence people and events to bring about change. In one sense, one could say that Goleman's approach is interested in the study of how the leaders style influences the moods and emotions of those he is attempting to influence. There is also an Open Loop (Goleman, 2002, pp6) in which the moods and emotions of the leader and the moods and emotions of the subordinates affect each other. They each influence each other. Yukl approaches the study of leadership in his book Leadership......

Why? | Wong The Wongs’ approach explains that student success is based on an effective teacher. Effective teachers are those who explain and teach proper behaviors and procedures so that they become automatic to the students (Charles & Senter, 2011). | The Wong’s approach could be called a “Common Sense Approach”. Everything the plan outlines is something that could be used on a daily basis without unnecessary spending or difficulty. This approach gives teachers a clear outline of their responsibilities as well as student responsibilities (Charles & Senter, 2011). The Wongs’ approach outlines a way for teachers to explain procedures within the first two weeks. It also urges teachers to be consistent and to establish a routine so that students know exactly what to do (Charles & Senter, 2011). | The approach could be seen as too broad; it does not discuss individual needs. The Wongs outline how to use it in every grade level, but they do not discuss how to use it in specific circumstances or with individual needs. | There plan can be used at any grade level.

...Comparison Matrix Marquita S. Henderson Grand Canyon University: PSY-801 July 10, 2013 Comparison Matrix A Comparison Matrix is a grid created specifically to display information in a structural format. In week two of the PSY-801 course, students were presented with the task of completing a comparison matrix, consisting of empirical articles and details of their content. The intent of this particular document is to revisit the matrix from week two and compare the provided findings on a deeper level. The following qualitative assessment will serve as a tool of preparation for the doctoral program. The purpose of developing and reviewing a comparison matrix is to ultimately compare, contrast, and synthesize researchers’ discoveries and conclusions in their works. The comparison matrix in reference, focuses on different facets of bullying in professional environments. The first article, titled, “Individual and situational predictors of workplace bullying: why do perpetrators engage in the bullying of others?” is an examination of the explanation(s) that aggressors tend to intimidate their co-workers. The second article, “Does trait anger, trait anxiety or organizational position moderate the relationship between exposure to negative acts and self-labelling as a victim of workplace bullying?” highlights traits relative to whether or not an individual is indeed a victim of bullying and the correlation between bullying actions. The emphasis is on influences and......

...in mind, with regard to effective leadership. The studies that will be compared will be “Personality traits, management styles & conflict management in a military unit” by Salimi, Karaminia, and Esmaeili (2011) and “The leadership skills strataplex: Leadership skill requirements across organizational levels” by Mumford, Campion, and Morgeson (2007). A comparison of the research questions, sample population, and limitations will be discussed. Salimi and colleagues (2011) investigated personality traits with regard to management styles. They wanted to find out if personality traits had any affect on a leader’s management style and conflict resolution. They found that extraversion and when conscientious leaders were more successful. Northouse (2010) in regards to personality traits gave perfect examples on how personality traits in fact can affect how leaders resolve issues and tribulations. Northouse (2010), stated how leaders are more tolerant for uncertainty, openness, and curiosity. When leaders are confident they are more inclined to be helpful in sudden situations that involve conflict. Mumford and colleagues (2007) addressed the skills needed by a leader to help perform their daily job functions within an organization. They suggest that cognitive, interpersonal, business, and strategic skills all have separate outcomes and importance in the role of being an effective leader. The skills approach suggests that all of us have leadership potential, and by learning from......

Leadership Comparison Paper

...Comparison Matrix Paper Brooke Waters Grand Canyon University: LDR-802 October 22, 2014 Comparison Matrix Essay This paper compares two studies dealing with leadership strategies in work-related settings. Although the settings vary, the study of management approaches and job satisfaction are similar in each. Charles Emery and Katherine Barker’s article, “The Effect of Transactional and Transformational Leadership Styles on Organizational Commitment and Job Satisfaction of Customer Contact Personnel”, assess the effect of transactional and transformational leadership styles on job satisfaction and the accountability of customer service personnel. The research suggests that some styles of management, such as transformational leadership, may be more effective in the dedication of customer service employees. Daniel Koys’ article, “The Effects of Employee Satisfaction, Organizational Citizenship Behavior, and Turnover on Organizational Effectiveness: A Unit-Level, Longitudinal Study”, addresses the issue of whether business outcomes are influenced by employee attitudes and behaviors or vice versa. In addition, the researchers concentrate on organizational citizenship as well as employee turnover. Each research study in this paper will be addressed as Article 1 and Article 2 respectively throughout this paper. Comparison of Research Questions Both of these topics examine employee outlook and job gratification in the workplace as well as the impact employees have on......

...Comparison Matrix Paper James Trent Grand Canyon University RES-811 October 8, 2014 Research Questions Customer service satisfaction and leadership, what do they have in common? Can you have poor leadership and great customer service satisfaction? Can you have great leadership and poor customer service satisfaction? Are there commonalities in the two? Are there any major differences in the two? Are there metrics that can be used to improve poor customer service? Is it possible to have one without the other? Every business in today’s society depends on customer service. For many customers it’s the most important thing to determine if there will be repeat business or not. The three studies that I’ve been asked to compare and contrast touches on the questions mentioned and provides strong arguments for both scenarios. One article states the following: “Customer satisfaction depends, to a large extent on the attitude of customer contact personnel (Emery. Pg. 77, 2007). Another article states that “Delivering quality customer service has emerged as a strategic imperative, one that is increasingly tied to a firm’s information technology resources and capabilities (Ray. Pg. 625, 2005). When looking over the three articles, they approach questions in a different way. Instead of asking direct questions in the study, each article takes the same approach and proposes several hypotheses. After the hypotheses is ...

Doctoral students may perform at higher rates when they participate and socialize in positive academic environments The intent of this research the role of a doctoral student seems to have been studied from the inception of time. Countless scholars have attempted to classify and identify the parts in which a doctoral scholar, and where they fit within society as well as in the realm of academia. They have also studied how social or non-social activities would have on influencing the doctoral scholars on their journey through academia. The three articles that were used further to enlighten the readers about the role and identity of doctoral did an excellent job in providing ample evidence. All three articles produced solid research questions, excellent literature reviews, substantial sample populations, and comparison of limitations, comparison of results, and definitive recommendations as well as future studies.
