Abstract
All organizations have some type of leadership style or program that is implemented in them. It could be either a single type of leadership, or a combination of styles, that are being used by managers, supervisors, employees, etc. The leader of an organization is often a manager, and they set the tone for the organization. This paper looks at a leadership style, “full range model,” which is a combination of transactional leadership, transformational leadership, with laissez-faire behaviors. Another key factor in organizations is ethics. Ethical standards are necessary to have a positive leader who is setting a first-rate example of what employees should do, how to act, what to wear, etc.
Keywords: transactional leadership, transformational leadership, laissez-faire, ethics, full range
Leadership
There are various forms of leadership styles in organizations that exist today. Traditionally, leadership can be defined “as the capability of the manager to direct, inspire and motivate their employees to produce greater work than their normal level of performance, with this contributing to organizational effectiveness” (Michie, 2012, pg. 609).
Not only is crucial the manager has leadership, but ideally the employees will have leadership skills too to work through the days, help colleagues, and/or customers. Any one person can have skills that “classify” them as a “leader.” To be on task, a role model, going out of the way to help others, holding confidence, having customer service skills, and other special qualities, generates a good, productive leader. Ethics is a key factor in any leadership position. One of the styles used today is the full range model and it is primarily based on transactional and transformational leadership styles, as well as laissez-faire (van Eeden, 2008).
Transactional leadership
In this form of leadership, the person holding the…...

...My Community John Jr June, 2011 Shepherdsville, Kentucky is where my community is. We have a very small community but pretty much very easy going. There are some issues around my community that may have racism issues such as, gender, looks, or speech in school or sometime even with jobs on who and when someone can work somewhere. These are really little problems that we have and if you ever visited you would see this as well. In my community the members that live near me do look like me in many ways. Mostly because I live in Shepherdsville, Kentucky, that are all white skinned that lives around me. Most of the people who are in my community are females, which is weird because you would think it would be even. Now we are also different in my community because some of us are short, tall, fat, skinny, have brown hair or even have blond hair. I know my son has blond hair and I have brown. We look a like but the hair color is completely different. The leaders that we have in our society actually treat people like me very well. We get respected just like others who do not look like me. There is not a lot of racism in my community compared to other places. There is an issue in school with bullying but its basically picking on anyone and not just one individual who may be different. Our leaders look at our society as we are all the same time of person. I believe that others in my community treat people like me the same that they would treat their......

...What is a community? Traditionally a “community is a group of people who live in the same area,or people having common rights privliges or interests and living in the same place under the same laws”. This definition was found in Websters Dictonary, however; what about the less talked about communities that appear online? These communities have a lot of the same common interests and make it easier to stay connected with technology whether it is for work or personal interests. Our business is involved in a small tight-knit community online called the International League of Signature Gatherers. Discussions in this group may include upcoming political events, nearby campaigns, and contains references on who to work for amung many other political interests. This site helps our business hire and fire workers as well as a place where we can voice our opinions without being judged. I believe that’s why we consider this social community home. International League of Signature Gatherers was established in 2008 by a fellow petitioner turned manager named Arenza Thigpen, he runs the page listens to comments and concerns and helps if needed to fix problems. I. L.S.G. main purpose is to give information about upcoming political, campaigns and also give contacts for different projects.

...Communities A community can be defined as a group of individuals that congregate to share common values, beliefs and interests. However, communities can be broken down to two different sub categories. A relational community would be a community where people come together based on a common interest whereas a territorial community would be where people are brought together due to their geography. Having previously attended a boarding school and currently attending college I will be comparing the two communities based on differences and similarities. Boarding school (high school) and college could be considered another fragment of one’s life. These days, most people go through the transition between high school and college and both worlds are similar but different at the same time. First of all, both are institutions for higher learning. High school could be considered as a platform to equip us with the knowledge required to succeed through college. In high school, students can afford to be more laidback and relaxed, as the responsibilities are not as heavy. Though students’ schedules are more relaxed, there is a downside to high school - they have a fixed time schedule and generally sit in a single classroom and hence have very little freedom. This could lead to increased levels of agitation and impatience among the students. High school also requires students to learn basic sciences, math and even different languages and this may not be appealing to some......

...My Community Visit Community Pharmacy Visit Reflection is important as it allows us as students to look back at a particular event and help us improve for future references. In this piece of writing I will mainly use Gibbs reflective cycle[1] as it allows one to analytically reflect on events. When I first got to the pharmacy it was very busy and the dispensary staff as well as the pharmacist seemed quite calm despite the queue of customers and patients, at first I felt under pressure as I was just only allowed to stand and observe rather than stepping in and helping, but all of the staff were composed; which is important especially in a community pharmacy setting as errors with respect to people’s prescription as well as dosage could happen if the pharmacist is under stress and doesn’t do final checks properly. As a result I learnt that stress is something that needs to be controlled and that outside factors shouldn’t affect work as there are many repercussions Later in the day I spoke to other members of staff in the pharmacy and their role, from that I learnt about the skill mix and the importance of different professionals working together, this reinforced my IPE work because I was able to see how interpressionalism works in practice rather than in theory. Adding on to this a customer complained that the Doctor was taking long to write the prescription for him to take the prescription to the pharmacy, one of the major things I took from that situation is that......

...Application of Community Health & Population-Focused Nursing Western Governors University A1. Description of Disease Avian Influenza, commonly referred to as the Bird Flu, is a highly contagious virus amongst birds (avian). These viruses occur naturally and can move quickly from wild aquatic birds to domesticated chickens, ducks and turkeys. Wild birds infected with the avian influenza virus usually do not get sick. The virus that normally infects the respiratory tract, affects wild birds intestines instead. However, our domesticated birds aren’t as fortunate and can become very ill and even die from the virus. There are two different strains of the virus: low pathogenic avian influenza (LPAI) and highly pathogenic avian influenza (HPAI).  Poultry infected with LPAI viruses may not cause disease at, could cause mild illness or may not even be detected. On the hand, when HPAI viruses infect poultry it can cause severe disease and high mortality (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention [CDC], 2015). According to the CDC, avian influenza outbreaks have been responsible for illness and death in humans in Asia, Africa, Europe, the Pacific and the Near East but between 1997 and 2014, the United States experienced only one incident of highly pathogenic avian influenza (HPAI) in poultry (CDC, 2015). The first bird flu case was reported in 1997 in Hong Kong and affected 18 humans, claiming the lives of six. A2. Epidemiological......

...web of interrelated knowledge and understanding that makes up who I am at this moment. I can only describe a process, the best process I know of that has developed my aspirations, desires, and subconscious tendencies. The one process that has defined who I was and became, has been football. I played football all through middle and high school. I started playing it as just another sport. I was always a very active kid, and played as many different sports as I could. Originally I loved the fast pace of the game, and that it afforded me a chance to hit other kids without penalty. Over the years, however, football came to mean more to me than a free-for-all arena. Especially by the time I entered high school, football was a community: the most important community in my life. Simply through getting up early day after day in the summer for grueling 2-a-days, and continuing that effort to just show up, battered and bruised, day after day, to get better and help my teammates achieve success, I forged myself a niche. The wind sprints, bag drills, lifting sessions, and hitting drills were, in a way, ways to achieve a sense of place for myself that I could feel like I earned, and that people respected. Not only was I working with others to achieve a similar goal (winning), but through that work we were becoming brothers. The sense of camaraderie on the field began to transfer over to everyday life. My teammates and I would sit together at lunch, joke together, hang out together......

...Community Assessment and Analysis - Rio Grande Michele Foster, Chelsea Simpson, Cinimol Teju, Ann Brennan, Jessica Ramaley Grand Canyon University Community Assessment and Analysis - Rio Grande The lower Rio Grande Valley is located along the United States and Mexican border. The lower Rio Grande Valley consists of four counties along the southernmost tip of Texas (Migrant Health Promotion, 2012). These counties include metropolitan areas such as Rio Grande City, McAllen, Harlingen, and Brownsville (Migrant Health Promotion, 2012). The Rio Grande Valley is nestled right along the Rio Grande River which is why the area is so abundant in agriculture. In phenomenological communities, place is emphasized more by the sense of belonging among the members (Maurer & Smith, 2009). The lower Rio Grande Valley has over one million people in which 90 percent of the population is Hispanic (Migrant Health Promotion, 2012). The Valley is known to be home to one of the largest concentrations of farm workers in the United States (Migrant Health Promotion, 2012). A considerable amount of farm workers travel from Mexico to work in agriculture in the United States and because of this, the members of this community can relate. Four counties in the southern tip of Texas along the Mexican border make up the Lower Rio Grande Valley.   Over 1 million people make up this population with 85 to 98% being Hispanic.  It is made up of over 2,000 colonias and most of residents.  Colonia is......

...The community in which I live is very diverse. They diversity is stem from immigrants whom have found a comfortable living arrangement with other members of their race, nationality and origin. The majority of those living in my community are African-Americans, followed very closely by Hispanic and Native Americans. The community in which I live is very urbanized, and residential. In regards to the members of my community, I definitely can relate to them. The reason I find it easy to relate to them is because I find that they are in the same social class as me and other members of my family. The social class in which I am talking about is lower middle class. It seems as though we are always trying to improve our quality of life to cease the “living from paycheck to paycheck cycle.” However, I noticed within the past couple of years, I have seen an abundance of Asian American’s moving to my communities. The rate in which they are populating the community is rapidly growing. I noticed that many of the Asian Americans that have come to live in the area are collectively putting their resources together and opening up restaurants, quick carry out, and liquor stores. I find that those in leadership position tend to treat African American’s as a lost cause. The reason I say this is because, it seems as though those in position of power to make changes do not want change for the minority. Another noticeable item is that many leaders, are not putting forth the effort to......
