For this discussion forum, you will examine a case study of two leaders on a senior team, Ahmed and
Damon, who are in conflict with one another. After reading the case study, you will start your discussion
by describing traits and characteristics of effective leaders in teams and organizations. Your perspective
on effective leadership will provide a point of comparison for how this team is currently led and how it
would be better led. You will then analyze the points of conflict between the leaders, especially as they
relate to issues of power and politics. As you read this week, you will discover that conflict can be avoided or better managed through appropriate structuring of teams and by fostering a collaborative climate.
Using this knowledge, you will analyze how the team structure and climate can be enhanced. Finally, you will share strategies that may alleviate the conflict and improve team performance.
