Art Management Master Course: Leadership
This week, we enter one of the important elements of management – Leadership, is both a research area and a practical skill, regarding to the ability of an individual or organization to lead or guide other individuals, teams, or entire organizations. According to author Paul Hersey and Ken Blanchard’s theory, “there is no single best style of leadership”, both of them developed their own leadership models using the situational leadership theory in the late 1970s.
本週，我們進入管理的其中一個重要元素 － 領導，既是一個研究領域也是實際技能，關於個人或組織領導或指導其他個人、團隊或整個組織的能力。根據作家Paul Hersey和Ken Blanchard的理論， “没有一個最好的領導風格”，於70年代末，两者皆使用情境領導理論來展開自己的領導模式。
Leadership Style and Maturity Level are the essential concepts under the Hersey-Blanchard Situational Leadership Model.
Leadership Style, Hersey-Blanchard Situational Leadership Theory classified leadership style into 4 behavior types:
S1: Telling – ordering
S2: Selling – influencing the sub-ordinates to buy into the direction
S3: Participating – sharing decision-making
S4: Delegating – passing the decision process and responsibility to the sub-ordinates
S1：告訴 － 指示
S2：被接受 － 影響下屬接受指示
S3：參與 － 分享決策
S4：委派 － 相傳決策過程及責任予下屬
Maturity Level, Hersey-Blanchard Situational Leadership Theory identified 4 levels:
M1: Unable and insecure
M2: Unable but willing
M3: capable but unwilling
M4: very capable and confident
Next, we study the knowledge, skills and capacity of a cultural leader.
Besides, the exercise of gallery arts marketing, last two weeks we had to search a gallery to study, and find out the season of the gallery, the types of artists, programs, exhibitions timing, and other activities. I have chosen a Hong Kong gallery Fabrik Gallery as my reference for this exercise. After studying the background information of the gallery, I have designed a new annual plan for a gallery and calculated the costs. Now, I am preparing the program with PowerPoint.
This week, the school has prepared the Colomba cakes, candies and chocolate eggs to welcome Easter.
Meanwhile, Supermarket is full of Easter eggs too.
