Leadership Effectiveness and Diversity
To launch the discussions, study this week’s required readings and reflect on your own assumptions about leadership. Take time to critically think about how leaders can “improve their organization’s capacity to embrace diversity” (Western, 2013, p. 91). Then conduct some scholarly research to aid your understanding.
Western (2013) stated “to address diversity is to acknowledge difference” (p. 91). This week, we step outside the mode of writing into the medium of illustration. So, with the concepts, theories, and your personal reflections in mind, create an original graphic representation of leadership effectiveness and diversity.
- The graphic can be an illustration, a combination of slide art, or some other medium that is appropriate for the assignment. You do not have to create a masterpiece; you only need to develop a graphic that tells a story.
- For your original post, write a one- to two-paragraph explanation of your graphic along with a list of references that you used to inform your thinking. A minimum of three (3) scholarly sources in addition to required reading is expected.
- For display purposes, you could attach your graphical representation in PowerPoint (PPT), Prezi, or SlideShare. Or you may wish to embed a link to YouTube or some other internet source where you saved your graphic.
Be creative and have fun. There are no wrong answers!
