You are expected to complete a leadership biography of an individual of your choice. This will account for 20 percent of the total grade.
You will select a biography of a contemporary or past leader and report on the significant contributions the individual has made. The leader can be from any field – political, business, religious, science, public or emergency administration, etc. – with the caveat that you must be able to answer specific questions about their leadership or management style.
You need to pick a leader from public, nonprofit or private practice. Find one that is relevant and useful to you and what you envision doing with your life or find one whose ideas are very thought provoking and that you have a deep intellectual curiosity for. The expectation is that you provide a thorough and concise analysis of a leadership philosophy and not simply a book report about the events in a leader’s life.
These questions are provided to help guide and organize your thoughts.
