Discuss opinions about what traits, behaviors, leadership styles led to success and/or failure.
Your team will create a virtual presentation describing a leader and analysis of the leader’s style. This narrated presentation should be composed using presentation slide software (PowerPoint, Google Slides, Prezi, etc) that highlight the main points (please do not overcrowd the slide with text; reading directly from the slide is a no-no). The recorded presentation will be upload to Canvas by the team leader (only 1 submission per team). The record presentation should reflect what would be presented in a live presentation to the class. At minimum, there should be at least 8 slides to support your presentation. The record should be no longer than 7 minutes.
Format and grading: Select a current leader or historical figure who is a leader in politics, business, or other fields in the public sphere. Post in the designated discussion board your team’s selected leader as there should be duplicate leaders (i.e. your team should not select the same leader as another team).
Research the leader through media reporting services such as news magazines, business magazines, trade magazines, and newspapers or historical documentation in books. Also appropriate is web resources, but these should be used along with other sources and should be cited appropriately. The presentation will include the following sections:
(a) A brief description of the leader’s background including information regarding family history, education, and career.
(b) An analysis of the leadership style for your leader using concepts from our course.
(c) Discuss opinions about what traits, behaviors, leadership styles led to success and/or failure.
(d) The last slide of the presentation should include a list of the references used to create your presentation in either APA style, 7th edition format.
Grading Criteria: The team will be graded on the depth of research, the thoughtfulness of analysis and appropriate use of course concepts, the clarity and organization of the presentation, providing appropriate citations.
