Healthcare Equipment Corporation Case Study
Organizational leadership is essential for every company or organization. Organizational leadership encompasses other elemental aspects such as leadership communication. Leadership communication encompasses various theories that enable the solving of organizational problems in terms of leadership (Krause, Franks, Levin, and Couzin 19). With reference to then issue of Healthcare Equipment Corporation and the leadership challenges in the Korean Subsidiary, the democratic leadership style would be elemental for handling the issue. Under this model, both the consideration and initiating structure dimensions can be used.
First, with the consideration dimension, Lynn Delaney can build a relationship-oriented form of leadership. This relationship-oriented leadership dimension encompasses the building of effective relationship with the employees, colleagues as well as the customers (Neufeld, Wan, and Fang 26). Building of effective relationships entails having an efficient human resource management system, as well as customer relationship management. With these two elements, Lynn Delaney can annihilate the problem in the Korean Subsidiary. Since Mr. Lee had become disruptive to the operations of the organization, having an effective and efficient human resource customer relations management system will be a step towards handling the problem.
The second dimension, which involves initiating structure, is a task-oriented approach towards handling the issue. As such, Lynn Delaney can promote this dimension by establishing a performance evaluation program for every leader, such as Mr. Lee. With these performance evaluations, each of the leaders will strive to deliver (Pigg 15). That is; the leaders will develop high levels of accountability and transparency, which will be a step towards annihilating the leadership problem. Moreover, a task-oriented dimension of leadership can be used by Lynn Delaney to place restrictions or define the provisions for these leaders to deliver quality work and instigate the progression of the organization.
