Post an initial response with your comparative analysis of the Shinseki and Jefferson leaderships based on the 3 questions below, making sure to address each:
(1) Apply the transformational leadership theory as explained in the Rainey text (including the theory’s component parts) and in the Shinseki biography (an expanded explanation of the theory) to the case of Chief Burtell Jefferson. Explain why Jefferson was successful in transforming his police department and Shinseki was not successful in transforming the VA.
(2) Then go beyond the transformational leadership theory to other leadership theories and strategies you studied this week to explain how and why these two leaders succeeded or failed. Make sure to include some specific strategies used by successful public organization leaders as articulated in the Rainey text.
(3) Analyze how organizational characteristics and environmental factors may have impacted the success or failure of Shinseki and Jefferson as leaders in their specific organizations.
This biography provides an example of excellent public service leadership and offers an interesting comparison to the Shinseki case study, especially in terms of transformational leadership.
