5. Identify workplace contexts where the following types of leadership are preferred

Justify your answer. What are the different strategies for turnaround leadership?
6. Read the paragraph given below and answer the questions given below
Susan went through her pile of “to-do” lists, checking off item after item. Done, done, done,
done, done, done. With each flick of the pen, one more task was lifted from her shoulders.
Then she copied the tasks that remained on to a new list:
To- Do
1. Get status of annual sponsorships
2. Write personal thank you letters from last event
3. Recruit new leaders from community (must!)
4. Ensure the training for new volunteers is done this week
5. Submit budget report to National Office, which was due…like, yesterday…
6. Meet with staff to brainstorm ideas to sell annual sponsorships
She paused in dismay. These were all the most critical priorities! What had she been doing
when she should have been completing these tasks? She glanced at her outlook schedule;
yesterday there was that meeting with Tony that she really didn’t have to go to. Then she and
Shelley spent the rest of the morning discussing the office supply situation. She had a meeting
with Lisa to help her with the revenue report and Major Donor prospect plan. That and
promptly returning
e-mails during lunch, took better part of the afternoon. She had done everything she was
supposed to in using her time better. Made schedules and “to- do” lists, screened her calls and
returned them all at once- and now everyone else was going home, and she hadn’t even really
started! What was the point of all her careful time management when she still was
overworked and frenzied?
1. Based on the above case study on time management, substantiate the statement “The cardinal
rule of time management is to get your priorities right”
2. List down some key ideas/thoughts/advice you would give Susan
3. Briefly discuss a possible solution
4. How do you think a “ to-do list” should be ideally structured for effective time management
