For this Portfolio Project paper, you will choose two leaders, one male and one female. These two leaders do not need to be from the same organization. One leader should be what you would consider “effective and successful” and the other should be what you would consider “ineffective and unsuccessful.”
Compare these two leaders regarding their leadership characteristics, use of power and influence, and how these relate to their effectiveness or lack of effectiveness within their respective organization
The entire portfolio project is worth 35% of your overall grade for this course. Make sure to use research to back up your statements within the paper. You will need to address each of the following as they relate to your two leaders. Each element is worth equal value.
A brief background and organizational framework for each leader, including job title and general description, industry in which they work, number of subordinates they supervise, and their leadership level within the organization (lower level, middle level, executive level)
A comparison of the techniques used by each leader to gain power in his or her role within the organization
A comparison of how subordinates relate to each leader, including how much influence the subordinates have on each leader
An analysis of how each leader uses influence to change the behavior of other leaders, co-workers, and subordinates within the organization
A comparison of the techniques used by each leader to influence employee motivation
An analysis of self-destructive tendencies (dark characteristics) of each leader, and how these tendencies affect the organization
A comparison of how each leader rewards employees, and how effective the reward systems are
An analysis of which leadership theory best describes each leader and the reasons why you selected the leadership theory based on research
Your paper must be 8–10 pages in length, not counting the required title, abstract, and reference pages.
You must back up your analysis with at least six references not used as required or recommended readings in this course. The CSU-Global Library is a good place to find these sources. You may also use additional credible sources including newspapers, trade journals, government reports, and white papers. You may not use Wikipedia in any CSU-Global course.
Include a cover page denoting the paper title, your name, the course number and name, your instructor’s name, and the date you are making the submission.
Include an outline or table of contents.
Include a brief abstract statement summarizing your hypothesis or findings.
Format your paper according to the CSU-Global Guide to Writing and APA. Use APA citations where appropriate, and include an APA- formatted reference page at the end.
