In the days following the United States presidential election, many Americans voiced their disbelief that Donald Trump, a man longtime considered a political joke and nuisance, won the election. But despite his brashness, entire lack of eloquence, and discriminatory tendencies, Trump was in fact elected. Many of Trump’s supporters attribute his success to his fundamentally different approach to politics and leadership. Max Weber’s lecture, Politics as a Vocation, provides an explanation of how Trump’s campaign was successful, why he is perceived as refreshing and different by his supporters, and how these same supporters were able to overlook Trump’s flaws. Weber defines in his lecture, three ideal types of authority; traditional, legal, and charismatic. Traditional authority can be associated with Hillary Clinton and her institutionalized style of politics, while Trump is aligned with charismatic authority. Trump’s charismatic leadership style contrasts the traditional American political approach which contributes to the perception of him as working against the status quo rather than for it. Weber’s description of how
Grojean, Resick & Diskson (2004) suggest that leaders are responsible for facilitating their follower’s to become capable and guide them to improving their capabilities and strengths. Differentiating between different leadership styles can be done in a number of ways. It was determined that the traditional styles of leaders include authoritian (autocratic), democratic, permissive (laissez-faire) and bureaucratic (Viinamäki, 2009).
In today’s ever evolving organizational settings organizations have grown into multifaceted labyrinth of concerns, hostilities, personal sandboxes, personalities, and sacred cows. Thus the techniques used by old titans of industry are beyond outdated and will do very poorly in the organization 's of today. While many roads can lead to becoming a successful leader, being politically savvy can help to smooth the path and even shorten the journey. In this paper I aim to identify what is a politically savvy leader and go into detail as to what traits one must develop, thus growing into an effective politically savvy leader.

Paula, it is astounding that Mr. McDonald, at his level, has the ability to make an impact at the bedside. It is essential that leaders’ exhibit competencies in ensuring systems are in place to monitor and maintain quality patient care. In addition, it is imperative that the principles of the leader are such that they inspire a shared vision and a commitment to excellence. Furthermore, the behaviors, theories, and techniques a person exhibits define their success as a leader to a higher degree than their power position (Billiam & Siriwardena, 2013). Clearly, Mr. McDonald is a transformational leader who inspired the emergency department (ED) manager to resolve the overcrowding and wait time issue that is
Last year, thousands of runners joined together to honor service members who have fallen since 9/11. Known as the Hero and Remembrance Run, this even spans eight kilometers. Whether individuals are in wheelchairs or want to sprint, the run is designed to be inclusive of every type of service member and their family.
There are varieties of leadership styles. Niccolo Machiavelli and Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr, are opposites in their characterization of what makes a good leader. One justifies that the “end justifies the means” while the other directs us that “it is wrong to use immoral means to attain moral ends” (King). I agree with the latter of the two believing that the first one burns bridges, while the latter builds them. However, both leadership styles exist today.
My father once told me that, “everything we do— be it in academia, at work, social or family life—we are guided by principles, beliefs and values that collectively form our ideology of life.” I believe that every leader, to a certain extent, is shaped through her individual personal experience. Although in some cases, we may not realize to what extent our personal assumptions and beliefs shape our ability to lead or be led.
Foley defines political leadership as a “notoriously elusive and variable construct” which is “susceptible to an intricate diversity of different interpretations and categories of associational life” (Foley, 2013, p. 265). Effective political Leadership
This essay will answer the question: Is it possible to profile leaders from a distance? By examine different concepts and methods that psychological profilers use to develop psychological assessment profiles of political leaders that they do not have access to, either because the person is dead or not available or cannot be interviewed by a profiler; this is considered profiling from a distance. It will examine how these profiles are developed with each method and the purpose for being able to profile political leaders from a distance. This essay will also examine the problems with each of the methods used to construct a profile and conclude that it is not possible to develop a completely accurate profile from a distance.
I believe that it is essential to experiment as we develop our literacies, and that is what M.F.K. Fisher was attempting to do each time she failed. As a result of Fisher not being content with the ordinary pudding, she decorated her pudding with the berries to make it more extraordinary. Similarly, her Hindu Eggs were a failure because she prioritized the visual image of her meals more than the taste. As Fisher goes on to explain, she desires to portray rarity and uniqueness in her culinary creations. The only means we have of creating an original, individual work of art is to experiment by means of trial-and-error. A chef experimenting with a recipe may determine that he needs more, or perhaps less, of a particular ingredient. As writers,
The Political scientist George Mac Gregor Burns, has been one of the first one to take the challenge for a throughout analysis of this topic. He has developed Max Webber’s thinking on the sources of authority and charisma by bringing a distinction between transactional and transformational leadership.
