Leadership THEORY AND PRACTICE BY NORTHOUSE, P.G. IS THE BOOK.
The final paper serves as the course final exam and is worth 20% of your course grade.
The paper should demonstrate your mastery of the course content and learning objectives and describe your leadership learning over the course of the semester. It should reflect your understanding of leadership theory, course concepts, and your own personal leadership style. The paper should serves as a continuation of (next chapter of) your Personal Leadership Story from earlier this semester.
The paper has 3 components:
Personal Leadership Style: You should select a theory or theories that best represent your own personal leadership style. You should describe these theories and explain how they have influenced your past and present leadership experiences.
Personal Definition of Leadership: From what you now know about leadership, you will share your own personal definition of leadership. Be sure to include any values, assumptions, and/or experiences that helped you to arrive at this definition.
Future Leadership Style: Given your leadership learning just over the past 6 weeks in this course, you should have some idea about your leadership future. How do you envision your future leadership style? What might it look like? How might it differ (or not) from your current leadership style, and why
This paper is worth 20 points and serves as the Final Exam for this course.
Your paper MUST include and cite AT LEAST SIX (6) different theories or concepts introduced in the course materials or readings. These six can and should be woven throughout the 3 paper components. Please note that describing the delegating and coaching styles of the Situational Leadership theory does not constitute 2 theories/concepts. Rather, they are both components of the theory/concept of Situational Leadership.
In identifying the theories, it is important to be as specific as you can in mapping and helping the reader understand WHY you chose a particular theory for application. Substantiating your arguments with citations and quotes from the book/course material to support your claims not only helps the uninformed reader understand the material and terms, it also helps to further support your choice of theory in those particular applications.
The paper should include citations, both in-text and in a reference/work cited list formatted appropriately and consistently for the style guide of your choosing (e.g., APA, MLA, Chicago, etc.).
Your paper should be approximately 6-7 pages, not including any cover pages or reference lists required by your style guide of choice (e.g., APA, MLA, etc.).
