Assignment 3: Evaluating Leadership Behavior 

Assignment 3: Evaluating Leadership Behavior 

Many definitions of leadership derive from the leadership models outlined in the text. Consider these models when you develop your biographic article.

Create a fictional profile of a CEO and write a biographic article focusing on his or her leadership qualities. Do the following in the biography:

  • Include instances, wherever relevant, that demonstrate the CEO’s qualities and his or her influence on organizational morale and building interpersonal relationships. 
  • Analyze the personal and environmental factors that might have contributed to the characteristic leadership style of the CEO. 
  • Indicate whether the CEO is an inspiring leader. Explain the reasons for your opinion.
  • Finally:
    • If the CEO is uninspiring, recommend how he/she can improve, in order to change the perception of his/her followers. 
    • If the CEO is an inspiring leader, identify potential psychologically based, human relation issues that he/she should be ready to face while leading the organization.

7  Security Needs
