LEADERSHIP THEORY AND PRACTICE SIXTH EDITION How Does the Path-Goal Theory Approach Work? Focus of Path-Goal Theory Strengths Criticisms Application LEADERSHIP THEORY AND PRACTICE SIXTH EDITION How Does Path-Goal Theory Work? The leaders job is to help subordinates reach their goals by directing, guiding, and coaching them along the way Leaders must evaluate task and subordinate characteristics and adapt leadership style to

these The theory suggests which style is most appropriate for specific characteristics LEADERSHIP THEORY AND PRACTICE SIXTH EDITION Path-Goal Theory Approach Focus Path-goal theory is a complex but also pragmatic approach Leaders should choose a leadership style that best fits the needs of

subordinates and their work Overall Scope Path-goal theory provides a set of assumptions about how different leadership styles will interact with subordinate characteristics and the work situation to affect employee motivation Northouse - Leadership Theory and Practice, Sixth Edition 2012 SAGE Publications, Inc.

21 LEADERSHIP THEORY AND PRACTICE SIXTH EDITION Path-Goal Theory Matrix Northouse - Leadership Theory and Practice, Sixth Edition 2012 SAGE Publications, Inc. 22 LEADERSHIP THEORY AND PRACTICE SIXTH EDITION Strengths Useful theoretical framework. Path-goal theory is a useful theoretical framework for understanding how various leadership behaviors affect the satisfaction of

subordinates and their work performance. Integrates motivation. Path-goal theory attempts to integrate the motivation principles of expectancy theory into a theory of leadership. Practical model. Path-goal theory provides a practical model that underscores and highlights the important ways leaders help subordinates. Northouse - Leadership Theory and Practice, Sixth Edition 2012 SAGE Publications, Inc. 23 LEADERSHIP THEORY AND PRACTICE SIXTH EDITION 24

Criticisms Interpreting the meaning of the theory can be confusing because it is so complex and incorporates so many different aspects of leadership; consequently, it is difficult to implement. Empirical research studies have demonstrated only partial support for path-goal theory. It fails to adequately explain the relationship between leadership behavior and worker motivation. The path-goal theory approach treats leadership as a one-way event in which the leader affects the subordinate.
