Leadership Exploration Project - How do I Become the Leader I Want/Need to be
As you begin your project, you will need to identify a specific leadership role you strive for (e.g., business owner, HR Manager, IT Team Leader, Marketing Manager, etc.). Keep this specific leadership role in mind throughout every project section.
To begin your project, you will first need to conduct a little research. Find at least 3 scholarly journal articles on the topic of leadership, leadership theory, or leadership traits and behaviors. Based on your research, write a minimum 2 page paper and include the following:
- How do you define leadership; what does leadership mean to you?
- Describe what you would expect of yourself as a leader.
- Based on your research, what skills, traits, and behaviors do you feel are most important for a leader to possess and how do they positively impact the organization?
- What do you see yourself contributing as a leader and how do you intend to make a positive impact on your employees and the organization?
Remember to locate at least 3 scholarly journal articles. Integrate the sources into your paper by using in-text citations for quotations and paraphrasing. Include an APA formatted reference page and title page.
Your submitted assignment should be 4 to 6 pages and include correct spelling, punctuation, and grammar. Be sure to cite your sources per APA formatting. For more information on APA, please visit the Online Library, which is available through the Resources tab.
