Effect Leader VS Ineffective Leader

Introduction

Leadership is important because the fate of an organization is related to variables such as the leader’s traits, styles, and behaviors. These types of variables often determine the effectiveness or ineffectiveness of a leader. Leaders, at all levels within the organization, must understand how to successfully complete their roles and expectations; this understanding impacts the success or failure of a company.

By completing the research project, you will be able to evaluate how your selected leaders were influenced by or displayed the various aspects of leadership covered in this course.

The research project for this course has two major parts: (1) a final written paper due in Module 8 and (2) a video presentation due in Module 9.

The importance of having a presentation submission is that in the “real world” leadership present findings internally and externally. In this “real world” scenario, the audience is the board of directors, led by your course professor.

You will submit sections of the research paper throughout the course to allow you to receive feedback and apply any suggestions for revisions.

The leaders selected should be contemporary, non-political figures in history (post the year 2000).

You are encouraged to select leaders along the lines of your perceived leadership self-assessment results from Module 1; which serves as an overview of your leadership style. You should select a well-known (non-political) leader that has plenty of data/research detail rather than simply selecting leaders that you have heard of or have researched in the past. You will use the Hunt Library and other reliable sources to assist in building your research project.

Note: A minimum of two students can select the same leader. You must have the instructor’s approval before proceeding on your topic.

In 4.3 – Research Project: Section 1 Deliverables you will submit an outline with references along with completing the first section of the eight major deliverables for the research project (related mainly to Chapter Two). This section’s deliverables include:

The Five Models of Personality and Traits of Effective or Ineffective Leaders
Leader’s Theory X and Theory Y
Leader Ethics
References

In 6.3 – Research Project: Section 2 Deliverables, you will complete the next section of the outline (related mainly to Chapter Three and Chapter Five) for the written research project assignment. This section’s deliverables include:

Guidelines for completing your deliverables:

Each non-political leader must be or have been a business or world leader from 2000 to the present.
Provide three separate reasons (with referenced examples) to justify the reason the selected leaders were a positive (i.e., effective) or a negative (ineffective) leader.
Identify, compare, and contrast at least two different leadership styles of each selected leader. Be sure to add applicable leadership theories and concepts introduced in this course.
The written submission requires the components as outlined in the Research Project Content Outline section of this page. Review that section for complete details.
You must include at least three outside references for each leader, for a total of six (6) references (minimum) for the research project final written submission. The textbook may be used as a reference, but it will not count toward the six (6) required sources.
