Business Leadership TV Show Assignment
The television show that I have chosen to illustrate the concepts learnt in class is Sons of Anarchy. Sons of Anarchy is my favourite show because of all the thrill and excitement. It’s based around an outlaw motorcycle club that is left in the hands of Jax Teller after the loss of his father, John Teller and step-father, Clay Morrow who were both former presidents of the club. The club, SAMCRO which stands for Sons of Anarchy Motorcycle Cub, Redwood Originals originated in ...view middle of the document...
The club runs its business through close community relationships, bribery and violent intimidation and they are big on keeping drugs and drug dealers out of Charming.
The show is driven by Jax’s mission to seek revenge for the murder of his wife Tara. Jax learns how to manage responsibilities of the club as well as being a devoted and loving father and husband. Jax killing his step father Clay and becoming the president of the club are traits of a good leader. Jax knew exactly what was right for the club and what he had to do in order for the club to stay on top. Jax kept his alliances strong with other gangs and always tried to finish enmities with other gangs, which is an example of formal structure. An example of Geographical Structures, was the alliance with the Mayans that lived for so long and that led to the Mayans getting access to guns. Throughout the show, there was a lot of Motivation shown. The main motivational factor was Tara’s death. It gave Jax the pursuit of revenge. Problem solving was also shown well in the show because every time there was a problem there was a really good decision made by the club to face it.
