Write a report evaluating the leadership of a 21st century leader of an (business, government or not-for-profit) organisation.
For this assignment you can select a leader from a large or a small organisation. You can select a leader from your own organisation or one that you are familiar with. It could be a CEO of an international organisation whom you have read about in the newspapers/biographies, or a family member who runs a small business with a few staff members. The choice of leader and organisation is yours.
Using relevant theories and models, critically evaluate and analyse the leadership of the leader you have selected. If you were in the position of the leader, what could you do to be a better leader and make a stronger impact on the followers and on the situation?
In your report you must cover the following:
A clear description of the leader, the organisation/industry, and situation/context.
An evaluation of the leader by referring to concepts and theories covered in the subject (e.g. style, behaviour, traits, attitudes, power) and by referring to relevant examples and mini-cases in the textbook (where appropriate).
A discussion of how you would lead differently if you were put in the same situation(s) as the leader and how you could make a stronger impact on the followers and on the situation(s).
It is important to demonstrate your knowledge about leadership and to clearly reference your sources. Read about leadership in journal articles (using AIB Online Library), books (including the textbook), and business literature, etc. Note the sources and use them throughout the report.
Remember that pure description and paraphrasing is not sufficient. A good report will clearly take an analytical approach and demonstrate application of leadership concepts/theories.
In order to do well you need to structure your discussion well, use good references, and clearly link recommendations to description and analysis presented earlier in the report.
Please include executive summary, conclusion and contents page
