Prior to beginning work on this assignment, read and review Chapters 1-8 of Introduction to Leadership: Concepts and Practice. Additionally, review the Week 3 – Weekly Lecture.
By the end of Week 3, you have covered many topics about leadership (Chapters 1-8). You have taken self-assessment surveys, created journal entries on leadership, and have begun to understand some of your own strengths and weaknesses with regard to leadership.
This week you learned that leadership is a skill that can be learned, the importance of developing a strong vision, and the relationship between effective leadership and productive work.
Address all of these bullets (create an appropriate APA heading):

  • Identify which one of the six dimensions you have learned about (i.e., trait, ability, skill, behavior, relationship, and process) seems to be the most obvious for the leader you have to research for your final project.
  • Describe the biggest challenge this leader had to face and how was it overcome.
    • Identify the trait or skill the person used to overcome this challenge.
    • Explain if the leader was successful in overcoming the challenge and why or why not.
  • Describe the style of leadership this person exhibits (i.e., authoritarian, democratic, or laissez-faire).
    • Provide specific examples for why you chose this style.
  • Explain emotional intelligence and its importance as a leadership skill.
  • Explain the importance of a leader following and communicating a vision and setting the tone.
