Also, you will be asked to evaluate your group mates and indicate the effort contributed. I expect a fairly equal contribution from all group members.

 So, yes, Fiedler assumes leadership styles are fixed, but more recent contingency models like Bass Transformational Leadership and other more modern theories mentioned in the book have changed the Fiedler'​s model to assume that leaders can and should adapt to the situation. So, if you're referring to Fiedler'​s model - leadership style is fixed. If you're referring to more recent contingency models - leaders can and should adapt to the context. So, yes, Fiedler assumes leadership styles are fixed, but more recent contingency models like Bass Transformational Leadership and other more modern theories mentioned in the book have changed the Fiedler'​s model to assume that leaders can and should adapt to the situation.

 +==== ASA model for companies ====
 +
 +** Q: How am I supposed to understand the point "self selection bias - companies want to be acquired by Google"?​ (Organizational Culture Slide 72)**
 +
 +It’s a bit like with the ASA, but on the organizational level. Companies that want to be bought by Google and integrated into the company already know the Google culture and want to be part of it. Companies that don’t like the Google way wouldn’t try to get Google’s attention but would prefer other companies with a more fitting culture.

 +==== How would most people act in an ethical dilemma? ====
 +
 +**Q: How would you answer the question provided in one of the homework assignments about how would most people act in an ethical dilemma situation?​**
 +
 +I would answer truthfully how I think others would act. This is for me to see that you're giving this some thought and understand how you see the world. This is a good example for an answer that you can NOT get wrong, what ever you answer me, I will accept - as long as you do answer and explain in a way that makes sense. ​
 +
 +==== Traits and values ====
 +
 +**Q: How would you define "​trait"​. Under trait content it says "​enduring dispositions"​ (slide 37). How is this to be understood? In management terminology is "​traits = personality"?​ If yes, are values also part of personality or not?**
 +
 +Believe it or not, this is a very hot topic for discussion in the personality research literature and at the moment I have an academic paper under review with two other colleagues in the UK and the US that aims to answer this question. In short - traits are dimensions of personality and values are different from personality traits, though both are part of a generalized model of the "​self"​.
 +
 +==== Personality traits taxonomies ====
 +
 +**Q: Can you give me three examples of personality traits? How about the dimensions of the MBTI, are they traits: extroversion,​ sensing, judging,​...?​**
 +
 +Big five is the important personality taxonomy to know. MBTI is another attempt of a different type of taxonomy for personality,​ and it is NOT well accepted by researchers since it has a problem with validity (though many organizations seem to like it for its simplicity). Nowadays, most of the personality researchers follow the big-five, which is why I mainly focused on that in class. We mentioned a few other traits in class, but only very briefly as they require more discussion that goes beyond an intro class - Locus of Control, Need for Power, etc.
