For this assignment, first review the background materials with a
focus on Hersey and Blanchard’s Situational Leadership model. Make sure
you are familiar with the four leadership styles covered in the
situational approach including Directing, Coaching, Supporting, and
Delegating, and situations where you are supposed to use these four

Also, familiarize yourself with the more complex Path Goal model and
Fiedler’s Contingency model. You don’t need to know these two models in
as much detail as the Situational model to complete this assignment, but
make sure you understand the main idea of these models as well as some
of their main advantages and disadvantages.

Once you have finished your reading and research, write a 4- to
5-page paper answering the following questions below. Make sure to cite
at least one of the required background readings in each answer, and to
cite at least three of the required or optional readings total in your

  1. For each of the following scenarios, explain which of the four
    leadership styles covered in the Situational model best applies to the
    situation. Explain your reasoning for your choice.

    1. You are in charge of a team of architects. They are highly skilled
      but have strong opinions and do not necessarily follow instructions.
      These architects are independent thinkers who are used to doing things
      their own way.
    2. You are in charge of a fast food restaurant. The employees are all
      teenagers who have not yet graduated from high school, and for most of
      them this is their first job.
    3. You are the supervisor for a team of software engineers. They are
      all highly skilled and highly motivated, and are used to working
      independently. All of them believe in the mission of the company.
  2. For the above situations, how hard would it be to apply the Fiedler
    Contingency model or the Path Goal model to choose a leadership style?
    Would it be easy, or would you require a lot more information about each
    of the situations? You don’t need to actually apply these two models,
    just discuss how difficult it might be to apply these models.
  3. Of the three models (Situational, Fiedler Contingency, Path Goal),
    which one do you think is the most useful for the real world? Explain
    your reasoning.
  4. Follow the assignment instructions closely and follow all steps listed in the instructions
  5. Stay focused on the precise assignment questions, don’t go off on
    tangents or devote a lot of space to summarizing general background
  6. List supporting references and cite sources in proper format
  7. Use appropriate writing style in essay form (organization, grammar, and spelling).
  8. Include both a bibliography and in-text citations. See the Student Guide to Writing a High-Quality Academic Paper,
    including pages 13-14 on in-text citations. Another resource is the
    “Writing Style Guide”, which is found under “My Resources” in the TLC
