Leadership Project (Part 2): Leadership Interview and Reflection Paper

Assessment

This assignment is a 2000 written paper.

Purpose

This assignment provides students the opportunity to apply their knowledge of leadership by evaluating the skills, values, methods, and performance of someone in a leadership position. Through a personal interview, the student will determine the leader’s strengths and weaknesses, accomplishments and failures, but, most importantly, how that individual’s approach to leadership conforms or diverges from the model presented by Kouzes and Posner in The Leadership Challenge. In a written report, the student will comment on the leader’s compliance with the Kouzes and Posner model, and provide recommendations on how that individual could improve his or her leadership in light of this model. For more information on the Leadership Challenge model, you can visit the website. Finally, students will have an opportunity to reflect on the experience and describe what they learned and how it will help them in their leadership journey.
