Tutorial Week 7: Case Study – Leaders and Followers
Question 1. What are the key components of the relationship between leaders and followers in Pancontinental?
Within Pancontinental the key components in respect of the relationship between leaders and followers may be seen as including Emotional Intelligence, Authentic Leadership, Servant Leadership and Participative Followers.
Emotional Intelligence is defined as a ‘type of social intelligence that involves the ability to monitor one’s own and other’s emotions, to discriminate among them and to use the information to guide one’s thinking and actions’ (Salovey and Mayer, 1990: 189). According to Goleman (2001), ‘emotional intelligence comprises of 4 key components which are, Self Awareness, Social Awareness, Self Management and Relationship Management.’

He is seen by his staff as a ‘visionary leader’, always looking for ways to improve in the future. In the case we can see that the positive style he adopts is exceedingly effective in an industry that is usually dogged by disputes, both internally and externally. Indeed he states, ‘I’ve done practically every job in the company....from the bottom up – I know what long hours are and I have empathy for everyone in the organisation’ We can also see proof of his social awareness in this quotation by his reference to having ‘empathy’ for his employees. As well as that he also includes the need for fun within the organisation. Callahan’s ‘Fun in Flight’ vision is used as an awards system for great customer relations and also has the ability to reduce the level of stress for employees with the use of ‘MISS (Most Impactful Staff…...

...British Airways – Flying Into a Storm S.J.Bastin Raj (F13016) 1. Bob Ayling was a lawyer by profession who helped British Airways (BA) get privatized and later on joined the firm. He moved up the ladder to become the CEO as a favourite of his predecessor of Lord King.Bob Ayling mainly focussed on cutting costs rather than concentrating on the welfare of his employees. That’s the main reason for his failure as a CEO Things went well during Ayling’s Tenure. * Identified the need to cut costs for becoming a better performing airlines * Initiated the industry transforming alliance with American Airlines * Later, modified BA’s strategies as when problems cropped up Things not went well during Ayling’s Tenure. * No communication of the organization vision to the employees which led to their disillusionment * He missed out on the people touch points - both employee and customer wise. A fatal error in a service industry. * He failed to create a competent rung of top management around him. * He should have had an acceptability test before rebranding BA. He grossly failed to understand the British sentiments and pride and alienated opinion leaders like Thatcher. 2. Ayling is an Authoritative Leader. He has high concern for production and very low concern towards people. This makes him an Authoritarian manager. Indeed, if we look into the tactics he adopted in BA, they are mostly......

British Airway on British airways 1a. Internal and external factors which influenced the strategic changes of BA. The airline industry is highly competitive and regulations are heavily implemented. Aside from these, the airline industry also faces different challenges brought about by drastic changes in consumer behavior affected by different external factors such as economic condition.( Prosser, T. (n.d).) Political The airline industry is subjected and governed by stringent air regulatory controls. Regulations are applied in the courses that the airline chooses to travel, the partners that the airline chooses to works with, the airport schedule it uses, the fare it sets as well as the infrastructure costs. One more area which is heavily regarded is safety and security. British airways identified and introduced an array of security measures and protocol to curb the threat of terrorism and illegal immigration. The European Union, being a regulatory body in Europe published a list of airlines that failed to meet the safety standards set by ICAO. These airlines are banned in Europe (Department of Transport 2009). Economic The airline industry is highly sensitive to any economic recession. Economic downturn causes company to cut down business travel which contributes greatly to the sales of the airlines industry. The global recession that took place in 2008, has massive impacts on the airline industry. A couple of factors affected the business of British Airways such as......
