Communication helps in passing of messages between the sender and the receiver. Communication occurs as a dynamic process between persons, which means that people are continuously drawing meaning from the verbal and nonverbal cues that others give (Kasper & Kellerman, 2014). Both verbal and nonverbal forms of communication play a critical role in passing messages between a sender and a receiver. The verbal messages help in conveying the content to the receiver, while nonverbal messages help in portraying a relationship aspect of the communication.

Compare and contrast followership and servant leadership

Compare and contrast followership and servant leadership

Question This is a business assignment where the student is required to Compare and contrast followership and servant leadership.    Servant Leadership and Followership Servant leadership refers to a model of leadership in which the leader has intrinsic motivation to serve others (Davis, 2017). In servant leadership, the leader focuses on the well-being or growth of other individuals rather than the acquisition of power. In organizational settings, servant leadership is evident in the nature of relations between leaders and employees. In the traditional style of leadership, organizational leaders were focused more on maintaining hierarchical relationships with followers. On the contrary, servant leadership promotes synergies between organizational leaders and their followers. As servant leaders attempt to establish synergistic relations, the concept of followership holds that both leaders and followers are in an interdependent relationship. Followers are not just passive participants in the relationship but also take an active role (Davis, 2017). Followership in organizations helps to complement servant leadership. In other words, the leader-follower relationship is more...

Psychological Critical Approach Analyzing change in Hawthorne’s

Psychological Critical Approach Analyzing change in Hawthorne’s

Psychological Critical Approach Analyzing change in Hawthorne’s The psychological critical approach is a revolutionary way of providing literal criticism. It combines the aspects of modern psychology and literal criticism. In particular, Sigmund Freud’s psychoanalytic theory mainly forms the basis of literal criticism. This theory contends that the human mind is made up of the conscious and the unconscious components. This paper will apply the psychological critical approach to analyze change in Hawthorne’s “Young Goodman Brown”. Goodman Brown goes through change when he leaves Salem Village for the gathering deep into the forest. From a psychoanalytic approach, Brown moves from the conscious realm (Salem village) into an unconscious realm (the forest). While Brown had a good understanding of the village, the forest was a mysterious place for him that evoked fear. As he enters the forest, conscious thoughts about Faith and the gathering he is to attend fill his mind. For instance, he says, “What a wretch am I, to leave her on...
