Tanesha Bloom was made Captain of the USS Barnes. She worked hard in her new post and rank. Having served on several ships over the last twenty-five years, Bloom was known for being tough but fair in her approach to her subordinates. She was civil to everyone but was considered a loner by her fellow officers and remote in her dealings with others. Fearful that should would not be treated with respect and determined that she would be obeyed in her command, Bloom became overly attentive to her officers and micromanaged everyone from the lowest seaman to her immediate second in command. She penalized and put on report people for the smallest infraction. The USS Barnes serving personnel who were known to have the best morale in the fleet became the most demoralized and unresponsive crew. When the ship docked, almost half the ship’s crew asked for immediate transfers. Bloom was called to task by her superiors immediately. They said that they would give her one more chance but if the negative reports continued she would be demoted and removed from the ship by the next month. Scared and worried for her career, Bloom comes to you to ask for advice.
Assess how Bloom might go about changing her leadership style. Take into consideration her personality traits, organizational values, emotional intelligence and the social leadership aspects of her role as leader. In short make her a new woman, one that the crew would want to follow.
