There is literature suggesting how certain traits, personality, characteristics, or knowledge are related to effective leadership.
Additionally, there are research evidence, arguments, and opinions that traits or characteristics might not necessarily guarantee that someone will become an effective leader. The basic argument is that leadership is not about what one possesses or has in terms of traits or characteristics. Rather, it is about what one does with what one has, in the form of actions taken or behaviors displayed. In addition, these actions or behaviors cannot be for personal or selfish reasons, but for the common good of followers or a larger group.
From your readings of the literature (including textbooks, articles, and other course materials), personal understanding, and professional experience, you are required to respond to the following four questions.
Identify certain traits and characteristics that are related to effective leadership.
Evaluate and comment on why you think these traits and characteristics will necessarily guarantee effective leadership.
3. Identify specific behaviors that are associated with the traits and characteristics that were identified and discussed.
4. Comment on how these behaviors are demonstrated by effective leaders in both complex and simple organizations. Provide detail on specific behaviors that are exhibited.
Write a 3-4 page essay addressing the four topics listed above. Provide informed explanations, analyses, and evaluations for your answers. Properly cited sources are required to support your evaluation.
Use of three strong reference sources is the minimum requirement to support your content. Most superior papers have six or more. Examples of appropriate references sources include ORGL course material, published articles such as Harvard Business Reviews and other sources that discuss leadership and leaders including blogs, published interviews and video sources. Always follow APA format to include appropriate in text citations, a bibliography, Times New Roman 12 pt. font and a cover page.
