Write a 750-1,000-word paper that analyzes the two leadership case studies found in topic materials for this module, “Coach Knight: A Will to Win” and “Coach K: A Matter of the Heart.”
Address the following questions and concepts:
1.Based on the principle of path-goal theory, evaluate the actions of the two coaches, and then provide an analysis of how they have (or have not) integrated the key considerations of this theoretical perspective into their leadership styles.
2.According to your text, research on leader-member exchange (LMX) theory has shown that LMX is correlated with subordinate energy and creativity at work, and that LMX, moderated by empowerment, would affect job satisfaction, turnover, job performance and organization citizenship behavior. Is there any evidence of LMX or the results of the above research in the two case studies?
3.Conclude your paper by summarizing the dominant trait, power bases, and leadership styles of both coaches, and adopting a position on whom you think was a more effective leader and why. Be sure to indicate what you have learned from the cases and how this knowledge would make you a better leader.
