Theories of Leadership
Write a 4–5 page paper in which you:
- Determine two leadership theories and two leadership styles that support the definition of a public leader. Provide a rationale for your response.
- Discuss the differences, if any, between successful leaders in public, private, and nonprofit organizations. Cite experiences and research to support your assertions.
- Some think leadership is a born ability. Some think leadership can be learned. Some think leadership is a product of a need or challenge. What do you think? Cite experiences and research to support your assertions.
- Include at least four peer-reviewed references (at least one must be no more than 3 months old) from material outside the textbook. Note: Appropriate peer-reviewed references include scholarly articles and government websites. Wikipedia, other wikis, and websites ending in anything other than “.gov” do not qualify as academic resources.
