U3: Negotiation Assignment
Using the normative leadership time driven model, analyze the following situation:
You are Executive Director of the a local theater. You are responsible for the both artistic and financial direction of the organization. While you know both areas are really important, you spend more time and energy on providing the highest level of artistic quality in the theater’s productions.
You have 4 direct reports, production manager, marketing manager, development manager and administrative manager. They are all talented and well respected managers in their own areas of expertise. Last week you received a report from an independent consulting firm hired to access the theater’s financial health. The report indicated the theater was in poor shape with expenses this year most likely exceeding revenues. The theater would be in the red for the first time in its history. If changes are not made, the theater may not be able to survive long term.

Collaborative (G2): You work with your team to reach a group consensus. Your role is mostly facilitative, and you help team members to reach a decision that they all agree on.
