Screen Shot 2015-02-15 at 8.38.45 am

I presented my research work in International Conference, describes the Leadership Style and Organisational Effectiveness in Delhi NCR. An attempt was made to determine if there is a significant relationship between leadership styles in relation to Organisation Effectiveness. A total of 67 randomly selected leaders from the Delhi NCR completed leadership style and Organisational Effectiveness questionnaires. The data indicate that in Delhi NCR: (a) leadership styles included directive, supportive, participated and action-oriented leadership. The most common leadership style among is directive leadership style. (b) there is no relationship between directive leadership styles and organisation effectiveness. (c) There is no relationship between action-oriented leadership style and organisation effectiveness.

Keywords: Leadership style, Organisation effectiveness

  1. Introduction : Success or failure of organisations, is a result of both the leaders and followers’ roles (Avolio & Reichard, 2008). In management and organisational behaviour literature, the focus is largely on the concept of leadership (Shondrick & Lord, 2010). Dixon and Westbrook’s (2003) findings validated Kelley’s idea of the existence of leadership in all organisational levels. It is believed that a focus on leadership will enhance our understanding of the leadership process because the operation of each is dependent on the other (Henry, 2012).Paper focus on 4 style of Leadership

Directive leadership is task-oriented and includes setting performance goals and reviews, facilitation, discipline and rewards.Supportive leadership is people-oriented and describes a friendly and approachable leader who creates a pleasant work environment based on mutual respect, no hierarchy, and employee satisfaction. Participative leadership involves employees in decision making and encourages employee suggestions and involvement. Achievement-oriented leadership involves employee performance reviews, including goals, efficiency, improvement, responsibility and accomplishment. In this model, the relationship between style and effectiveness relates to employee characteristics and the employees work environment.

Building High-Performance​ Team

Three key characteristics of High-Performance Team building was observed during our session with senior professionals were  ENCOURAGEMENT, COMMUNICATION, TRUST.

We ensured Team members are coached regularly by us. Team Leader was encouraged on an ongoing basis by giving clear direction by using clear communication.  This leads to building trust within the team. Usually, lifestyle | noveltiesits has been observed Leaders have to cross the journey of their  POTENTIAL TEAM to REAL TEAM to HIGH-PERFORMANCE TEAM, just by three step:

1- Encourage your team member to identify their skill set

2- Communicate what you as leader expect from your team member and

3- Trust your team and your own action.

Why Negotiation Fails

Hi friends, I have been training on the most required topic on Negotiation skills in the various industry to Senior and middle management. Indeed the most interesting required subject, used by each one of us on day to day basis but sometimes FAILS or it’s not as per our value …… It becomes difficult to be working towards Creating Value or Claiming value. Expanding your pie is a great task in negotiation by making another party happy too. But Still Why Negotiation fails. Great thoughts from my trainees who actually helped in pen down what usually lacks in failed negotiation :

– Lack of Preparation

  • Fail to use tactics ( Poor little me, Nibble, Straw Man, Switching, Good cop Bad cop….)

  • Understanding need of other and

-Competing approach

Please remember – No two negotiations are same but it all depends on what’s your own goal with the negotiation you are dealing with. I have always worked on  22 ‘don’ts’ from Krauthammer’s Research and Development cellar.i.e

  1. make this a single-issue process – “price agreement or nothing”
  2. be single-intention when considering a particular element, such as price, “this price, no lower/no higher or nothing”
  3. horse trade – unless of course, you are selling a horse
  4. unveil or limits too early – or bluff on those limits
  5. force an agreement to the detriment of the relationship (‘one-shot’ versus ‘partnership’) – this approach will also mean that even this particular agreement is a fragile one
  6. consider the goal as being a one-side victory – for your side
  7. underestimate, or fail to foresee, what the consequences of a breakdown could cost
  8. put out all your arguments from the beginning (the ‘bombardment through argumentation’ approach)
  9. talk to fill the gaps
  10. fail to understand the ‘why’ behind the reaction of the other party
  11. polarise your behavioural approach using EITHER ‘hard approaches’, like battle or power, OR ‘soft approaches’, like exchange or circum navigation
  12. accept no concessions
  13. neglect to seek a quid pro quo for every concession you make
  14. give nothing away, when the other party considers it important that you should
  15. insist upon or demand something which costs the other party
  16. block on a disagreement
  17. use moral blackmail
  18. seek only your personal interest
  19. mask your interests and reveal nothing
  20. focus on standpoints
  21. devalue or denigrate the product, service or offer of the other party to heighten your own power so as not to expose yourself to a block “in that case, no sale!
  22. shy away from confrontation and contestation where this is clearly called for.
