Assignment Choice #2: Exploring Professional Leadership Styles
For this assignment option, interview a colleague/mentor/manager whose leadership style we have explored in this class thus far and that you admire. First, create an outline of questions you will use to interview the colleague/mentor/manager. After conducting the interview, create a Power Point presentation that incorporates the following:
- The leadership style selected with definition and key characteristics
- The interview questions asked
- Insight gained from the interviewee responses and your analysis
- How you will incorporate this information into your organization
Your presentation should contain at least 10 slides or enough information for a 5-8 minute presentation. It should follow the APA Requirements, contain concepts from the reading materials, and apply to reality-based scenarios. You will need to include a references slide at the end of your PowerPoint presentation.
This can be a fictional manager or mentor. The following are the leadership styles that we have studied so far.
