Module 6: Discussion Forum. (Minimum 350 words)

This week’s required reading and lecture provide extensive material to assess leadership behavior within the structure of leadership discourse. Last week in Module 5, we applied our own research data, critical analysis, and conclusions to the study of Western’s (2013) Four Discourses of Leadership. This week, we’ll expand upon what we learned in Module 5 and add another point of view to test our critical thinking. This week’s discussion suggests a leader’s performance should be based on results of change versus intent of change. In other words, the focus should be on sustainable performance. 

To prepare for the discussion, answer the following questions:

  • What is the dominant leadership discourse–from Western’s (2013) four discourses–in your chosen organization? Four Discourses: Controller, Therapist, Messiah, Eco-Leader  
  • How did you reach your conclusions?
