Week 1 – Assignment MGT440: The Dark Side of Leadership (BIG2040A) ASHFORD UNIVERSITY

Dark Leadership Theory
[WLOs: 1, 2, 3] [CLOs: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5]
Prior to beginning work on this assignment, read Chapters 1 and 2 of your Meeting the Ethical Challenges of Leadership: Casting Light or Shadow course text.
Leadership is a complex topic. Up until now, the majority of your studies have focused on ethical leadership forms, but ethical leadership is only one part of a much larger leadership picture. There is also a dark side to leadership and to truly understand the ethical side of leadership, you need to understand the dark side.
In your paper,

  • Summarize your impressions of the different dark leadership theories.
  • Discuss why leaders cast shadow instead of light.
  • Describe ethical dilemmas that you have encountered as a leader or a follower.
    • Explain ways that you have resolved these dilemmas.
  • Explain your thoughts about this week’s reading, and what you learned that will transfer to future ethical decisions.
  • Describe your thoughts and observations about the moral choices made by a public figure and how these choices fit the lesson.
