Psychological Foundations of Leadership

One of your closest friends, Pat, has been recently promoted to vice president of Company XYZ. Company XYZ is a thriving company that is known for being focused on task management. Pat has always found this practice unsettling and wants to change the culture of Company XYZ. Pat is well-liked and respected by peers. The company has seen tremendous growth over the years, but the past 2 years have been trending downward. A recent employee survey has caught Pat’s attention. The survey polled employee job satisfaction and leadership satisfaction. The employee satisfaction rating was, on average, 5 out of 10, and the leadership satisfaction rating was 4 out of 10 on average. The scores have other members of management puzzled, but Pat believes that increasing these ratings could turn things around. Company XYZ’s yearly leadership conference is a month away, and Pat has been asked to speak on achieving organizational objectives. Pat knows that you have recently enrolled in a management course and wants to hear a fresh perspective.
