The purpose of this assignment is to provide students with personal context for leadership, culture and communication discussions that will ensue. It will allow the class to have reference points and images as metaphors to their own leadership behaviours and characteristics.
Choose a leader from Fortune’s “The World’s 50 Greatest Leaders” of 2019.
Ideally, this leader will have made contributions to the core themes of this interdisciplinary class (business, public administration, information / technology, resources / environment).
Review (and cite) additional material on these leaders to answer the following questions: 1. Briefly explain why you chose the leader you selected. 2. Which of the characteristics/behaviors of good leaders discussed in class do they demonstrate, and how do they demonstrate these? 3. What is their leadership style? Has their leadership style ever changed? 4. Identify a trend likely to impact this leader’s organization. What evidence do you see that the leader is sufficiently forward-thinking to manage their organization through this trend?
