There are clearly many maxims to keep in mind during Presidential elections but also many to ignore. As Hillary Clinton’s campaign manager, I strongly encourage her to keep her enemies in close contact with herself so that she is aware of anything suspicious or anything that can help boost her reputation among the public. I also encourage Clinton to not only never forget, but never turn her back on those people who once supported and helped her get to where she is now. Lastly, I encourage my candidate to avoid silence as being a powerful tool in elections so that she can get her word out and be heard by those who will help her win and become the next President of America. It is my job to guide Hillary Clinton in becoming an outstanding candidate and being able to show America her reliability and commitment in order to run a strong and independent country.
To begin his speech, Clinton initiates imagery by referencing that “from this chair” in the Oval Office that he is speaking to establish his credibility. His location reinforces the idea that he is still president and therefore he must be a trustworthy man. The inclusion of irony in that he “truthfully” answered previously asked questions suggests that he never bent the truth making him seem like a
Firing jabs left and right at her most prominent competition, Bernie Sanders. Whether it was taking shots at Sanders' so called inconsistent voting record with the NRA or defending President Obama she came strong and confident with the words she was saying. When the big banks were brought up and how Sanders and O'Malley criticized her of being "in the pocket" of the big banks, she fired back towards Sanders about he has not only criticized her but Obama when he had to lean on Wall Street.Clinton spoke on how Sanders had allegedly in the past called him "weak" and "disappointing" and then exclaiming to Sanders, "I will defend Obama for taking on Wall Street, taking on the financial industry, and getting results." She came out on fire and did not let herself be overshadowed. Did she make a lasting impact? Definitely.
As suggested by Tannenbaum and Schmidt (1958/1973): cited in Mullins, 1995 there are two different types of leadership that determines when the leader does things. The first time is when there is a use of authority by the manager; the manager will make decisions and inform the subordinates and the second is when the subordinates have freedom so the manager will inform or present a problem to the subordinates and they will solve it through engagement. In the accident and emergency department, the leader/ manager gives freedom to the subordinates by presenting them with a problem which they must solve within 15 minutes-which will help to improve engagement, performance level and help build a strong team.
This final examination essay explores the content of Hillary Clintons 2008 Democratic National Convention speech. The examination of the speech will be conducted through critical analysis of 4 central areas; first, was Hillary’s speech appropriate for and clearly articulated to the audience, second, I will scrutinize 3-5 aspects that helped or hindered her with regards to nonverbal and verbal delivery to determine if her delivery was appropriate for the speech act, third, analyze and determine if the main points are clear, given the specific psychological context of the speech and if they are appropriate for the purpose of the spectators, and lastly, and analysis of the evidence she presented was suitable given the nature of the situation and purpose of the speech and weather citations offered appropriate for the context?
In this essay, I am going to discuss how practices of leadership contribute to managing communication in the post bureaucratic era. This essay shall discuss the effectiveness of leadership approaches in the post bureaucratic era in managing communication in organizations. In section 1, I shall discuss leadership in terms of communication by drawing upon the article by Barry B. (2007). In addition, I shall also discuss the use of communication in running an organization in a leader’s desired way (Jack, G., 2004) and the need of contingency approach (Browning, 2007, pg 190) while communicating with employees. In section 2, I shall discuss how management stimulate loyalty in employees through embedding organizational identity (Gagne, J.F., Josserand. & Clegg, 2012) and overwhelms hosts to grab the spotlight ( Klein, 2000). In section 3, I shall illustrate examples on positive impacts of effective communication by leaders in an organization by drawing upon the writings of Koremenos (2005). In section 4, I shall illustrate how leaders use their communication skills in treating organizational trauma (Dutton, J.E., Frost, P., Worline, M.C., Lilius, J.M. & Kanov, J.M., 2002) and conflicts in meetings (Holmes & Marra, 2004). Rather than leaving it there, in conclusion, I shall question the effectiveness of leadership in managing communication and the significance of approaches like virtuousness (Cameron, 2011) for a better functioning of the organization. Moreover, I shall question the presence of freedom of speech in the context of post- bureaucratic era and its impact on managing communication.
Leadership and Teambuilding in Harrison-Keyes
Harrison-Keyes has faced many downfalls on its journey to transitioning into e-book publishing. The company has been through various management changes to include a new CEO and new managers working on various parts of this project. This has overall presented little hope for Harrison-Keyes to gain back its competitive edge in its industry. On the brighter side, by benchmarking other companies and focusing on key concepts that are imperative to the success of Harrison-Keyes, there seems to be light at the end of this tunnel for the company.
Some key concepts that the management team of Harrison-Keyes should focus on to regain their strength and power in their market are leadership, organizational structure, project duration, high performance teams, and managing project rewards systems.
Good Day, Sandy Johnson,
Thank you for your informative post. I totally agree with you that it is important for those in leadership positions to influence the action of others to get a task completed (Trochim, Cabrera, Milstein, Gallagher, & Leischow, 2006). Nahavandi (2014), address leadership as the ability to guide and direct authoritative commands as an integral part of a leadership role. While a manager's role is shifted towards communicating their leader’s authoritative commands with their subordinates (Nahavandi, 2014).

The success of The Wilson Brothers depends on the leadership of the organization. The brothers are typical examples for their employees to follow. The evidence of this is that they work longer hours than most of their employees. Compared to other owners, they will give the job to others to run the company and employees can report their responsibilities to the leader instead of the owner directly inspecting. However, the Wilson Brothers know what they do and they always show their enthusiasm for the job. I think the Wilson Brothers need to have the qualities of a leader. They should provide leadership for their staff, clear job descriptions as well as on-the-job assessments. They rarely direct employees or supervise their employees.
