The paper "Organization’ s Culture and Values on Leadership" is a great example of management coursework.   Organizational culture is undisputedly the central viewpoint in determining the position of an organization to work coherently in achieving organizational success. Ashkenas et al. (2015), states that organizational culture is the values and behaviors that depict the uniqueness of a particular organization. Further, organizational culture plays a fundamental role in shaping the psychological and social environment of a specific organization. Guadalupe & Wulf (2013), determine that business enterprises are just but the artificial type of a person and therefore must demonstrate unique behaviours, attitudes, and beliefs that shape the perceptions, ideas, operations, and performance of the person at the long run.

In understanding organizational culture, it is crucial to note that an organization is a conglomeration of different people from different cultural backgrounds and hence devising a common cultural ground where people can easily and openly share ideas and communicate in necessary (Wagner et al 2014). The culture of an organization, therefore, attempts to assist the organization determine and outline its organizational expectations, experience, philosophy, and values that hold the workplace together.

Leadership on the other hand is the ability to impose personal influence and importance on other people. It is the art of using personal power to influence other people to undertake a particular activity or duty (Voet, 2014). For effective leadership, a leader must be in a position to set realistic goals and visions, which are aspects of organizational culture, and letting the followers or other members of the teamwork towards the achievement of the set goals and visions. Leading a team of six people might sound easy but without a precise cultural outline, the leadership process might be of high complexity.

Factors such as the actions and behavior of the leaders, what the leader pays attention to, what he rewards and what he punishes and resources allocation procedures are as well vital in determining a leader’ s capacity to create a culturally effective work environment (Lloyd-Walker & Walker, 2011). \
