Week 4: Leader Styles and Leader Focus
This week’s lesson discussed some of the behavioral theories of leadership and their ethical implications. Consider and comment on the following questions:
1. Of the Iowa Study leadership styles (autocratic, democratic, and laissez faire), which style is most appealing to you? Are any of the styles ethically superior to any of the others? Why or why not?
2. With respect to the Michigan and Ohio Studies, do you think leaders who focus more on followers than on the job at hand are more ethical than other leaders? Is a balance better than being partial to one of the two dimensions? Given that the results of these studies were slightly different, which do you think got it most right?

After reviewing the video, execute the following Tasks Using a Created Microsoft Word Document and Submit a Single MS Word Document with Completed Tasks and Screenshots
- Using Microsoft Word, write a 250 word essay on the fading of home telephone use with the advent of recent technology, and share your personal experiences with this change. Provide at least tworeferences using APA format.
- Position a telephone graphic image within the text as tight using wrap text.
- Rotate a telephone graphic 45 degrees within a set of text.
- Set AutoCorrect options so that a text (you select the text) will not be replaced as you type and screen shot your result.
- Add the word “email” to the AutoCorrect options on the computer as an exception, provide a screenshot of your result.
- Change the AutoRrecover file location to the Microsoft documents folder, provide a screenshot of your result.
- Use Split Window, split the document after a selected paragraph (then remove the split), provide a screen shot of the split.
- Find the word “telephone” and replace with “phone” in a double underlined, red font, and provide a screenshot of each step.
- Hyperlink the graphic to open a “supporting reference website for your essay” when selected, provide a screenshot of each step.
- Add a custom watermark to the report to include your name, Garamond font (or something similar), size 96, colored Black, Text 1, lighter 15%, provide a screenshot of each step
- Double space the essay, then add Facet (odd page) footer, so it only shows on odd pages—Your Last Name.
- Apply condensed character spacing to the essay, provide your screenshot.
- Insert a page break just above the reference on the last page – the title of the new page is Works Cited (type this above the reference) – Apply the Title Quick Style to the Works Cited title, provide a screenshot of your results.
- Change the page color Dark Blue, Text 2, Lighter 60%, provide a screenshot of your result.
- Apply a shadow page border, 3 pt width, measured from the text, provide a screenshot of your result.
- Add a bulleted list of three different communication technologies you may use instead of a telephone, show result.
- Define the new bullet for the bulleted list above to be tulips.jpg (you will need to download an image) from the picture folder.
- Draw a textbox around your second paragraph—shade the box Dark Blue, Text 2, Lighter 40%,provide a screenshot as evidence.
- Insert a Cover page with your name as the author and “Fading of Home Phone” as the title, illustrate your work.
- Build a table below your essay with four cellular providers in one column and their websites in another column, with each cellular provider on its own row, submit your result.
- Convert a table to text separated by a colon (:), provide a screenshot of your work
- Add a heading to the first paragraph and change the first paragraph heading Heading Style 1, illustrate your work
- Use the format painter to change all remaining paragraph headings to Heading Style 1, illustrate your work
- Insert a Fancy formatted Table of Contents, with a hyphen leader, showing only Headings 1 & 2 after the cover page
- Restrict editing of this document, with password “phone” to comments only, illustrate your work
Recall the car data set you identified in Week 2. We know that this data set is normally distributed using the mean and SD you calculated. (Be sure you use the numbers without the supercar outlier)
For the next 4 cars that are sampled, what is the probability that the price will be less than $500 dollars below the mean? Make sure you interpret your results.
Please note: we are given a new sample size, we will need to calculate a new SD. Then, to find the value that is $500 below the mean you will need to take the mean and subtract $500 from it. For example, if the mean is $15,000 then $500 below this would be $14,500. Thus the probability you would want to find is P(x < 14,500).
For the next 4 cars that are sampled, what is the probability that the price will be higher than $1000 dollars above the mean? Make sure you interpret your results. Use the same logic as above. If your mean is $15,000 then $1,000 above is 15,000 + 1,000 = $16,000. Thus the probability you would want to find is P(x > 16,000).
For the next 4 cars that are sampled, what is the probability that the price will be equal to the mean? Make sure you interpret your results. Use the same logic as above.
For the next 4 cars that are sampled, what is the probability that the price will be $1500 within the mean? Make sure you interpret your results. Use the same logic as above.
I encourage you to review the Week 4 normal probabilities PDF at the bottom of the forum. This will give you a step by step example to follow and show you how to find probabilities using Excel. I also encourage you to review the Week 4 Empirical Rule PDF. This will give you a better understanding on how to utilize the empirical rule. You can also use this PDF in Tests&Quizzes tab.
There are additional PDFs that were created to help you with the Homework, Lessons and Tests in Tests&Quizzes tab. While they won’t be used to answer the questions in the discussion forum, they are just as useful and beneficial. I encourage you to review these ASAP! These PDFs are also located at the bottom of the forum.
Instructions: Your initial post should be at least 150 words. You must also respond to at least 2 other students. Responses should be a minimum of 100 words and may include direct questions.
In your peer posts, compare the probabilities that you found with those of your classmates. Were they higher/lower and why? In your responses, refer to the specific data from your classmates’ posts. Make sure you include your data set in your initial post as well.
