Casual vs effective thinking debate
Now you know a bit about causal thinking and effectual/entrepreneurial thinking. Take a side, and then post why you believe that your choice is the best way to develop a solution to your organization’s problem. Remember to support your position with a citation or two.
Hint: If everyone chooses one side then the debate will be very lack luster. The grading is on the debate not a character judgment of your selection.

It is suggested that leaders find their origin through power and influence. If this is true then it would suggest that one cannot be a leader if they have no followers. Looking at your own experiences and from the scholarly writing of others, post your thoughts. Does a leader have to garner a following to be considered a leader or in the modern context is there another answer?

In the reading for this unit, The Courageous Follower writes that “assuming responsibility for our personal development begins with self-assessment” (p. 37). In that spirit I would like you to look at the quadrants in the graphic shown on page 39 which describes 4 followership styles (the Implementer, the Partner, the Resource, and the Individualist). Do a self-assessment of your own followership style in your current environment. Which of the following 4 styles most closely matches you and why? Are you satisfied with this current style or do you strive for change and if so which style would that be?
