The Role of Leadership

    One of the obstacles to defining the role of a leader is the  difficulty in defining what leadership entails. Think about the role of  leadership in the criminal-justice system and answer the following  questions in a 2- to 3-page Microsoft Word document:


    • How can you differentiate between the role of a leader and a manager  in the criminal justice system with reference to the following:     
      • Operational functions of the organization, such as budget planning,  recruitment and hiring, infrastructure maintenance, and performance  reviews
      • Relationship with subordinates in the organization
    • Are there any overlaps between effective leadership and effective management roles in the criminal-justice system?
    • Does being an effective leader in the criminal justice system conflict with being an effective manager?
    • Are leadership responsibilities tied to official job descriptions in  criminal justice or could a criminal justice agent of any position be a  leader? Why?
    • How do the different ways of interpreting and defining a leader’s  role influence effective leadership? Explain with reference to the  various definitions of leadership as a specialized role and a shared  influence process.
