Leadership
1. Company’s Overview
At the beginning of McDonald's, as early as 1954, there was a new fast-food trend in
California. Ray Kroc laid the foundation for one leading retailer of food. McDonald's has almost
32,000 restaurants in almost 100 countries and they serve almost 60 million people a day.
Meeting this large customer base as well as expanding the roots in different countries is not easy,
and strong value and efficient management are prerequisites for the company to maintain its
status quo today. McDonald's currently more and more actively committed to innovation as well
as building very strong customer relationships (Aboutmcdonalds.com, 2015). From several
restaurants in the chain to franchisees and restaurants, McDonald's is committed to providing
customers with a commitment to convenience. McDonald's emphasizes the key areas of success,
calling “experience” the main determinant. The major part of McDonald's business is QSC&V. It
stands for service, quality, cleanliness as well as value. The main factor in the success of
McDonald's is the emphasis on effectively implementing these factors through four management
functions.

leadership factors in order to meet desires of followers. STL theory is the main part of the
contingency theory, which emphasizes the will of followers. It emphasizes two different
behaviors, one is relational behavior and the other is task behavior. Relationship behavior is the
communication used by leaders, such as multi-directional, one-way or two-way, as well as
support, facilitating behavior. According to this theory leaders have to decide diverse tasks to be
managed by determining individual willingness and after that choosing a specific leadership trait
to control. Manager's mission behavior emphasizes teamwork and collaboration methods to
provide the best service to customers (Ruddick, 2014). Encourage teamwork to help managers
revitalize team efficiency. Leaders at McDonald’s help struggling teams to achieve their goals
and motivate team members in order to move on. This shows how they relate to their employees.
In fact, team leader has all the features that Stagil (1950) used to define leadership. Features
include: behavior, influence, traits, interaction patterns, administrative duties, and role
relationships; clarifying visions, creating business environment for what can be done; entities
performing one or more leadership actions; The capability to influence the human behavior to
accomplish a task and influence a strong group of people to achieve goals or goals. The
McDonald's framework is a model of the Adair model and is called action-centric leadership.
This is the constructive model by which leaders can inspire others through their enthusiasm, high
commitment, and capability to easily communicate with others. The team is developed by the
team leader so they can complete the common task.
