Question description

LeadershipThe origin of a leader has been a topic of debate for decades.  While some believe that leaders are born, others argue that leaders are made.  Both sides of the debate have major implications for future leaders and the I/O psychologists who will work with them.  

Explore the relationship between leadership characteristics, including innate ability, personality, and communication. Do you believe that leaders are born or made?  Why?  Describe how an individual’s personality helps or hinders his/her leadership ability.  Compare and contrast leaders with managers. What are the similarities and differences between these two titles?  Explain how communication style impacts leadership effectiveness. Do you have to be an effective communicator to be a leader? Why or why not?  Your initial post should be a minimum of 250-300 words.  

You must use at least one scholarly, peer-reviewed source that was published within the past five years and is cited according to APA guidelines

Peer-Reviewed Sources
Peer-reviewed sources are important when researching for psychology.  In the peer review process, “the quality and potential contribution of each manuscript is evaluated by one's peers in the scientific community” (American Psychological Association, 2012).  Scholars with expertise in the content area provide an objective, impartial assessment of the research, including its scientific merit, statistical reasoning, data driven conclusions, and logical implications. Completion of the peer review process demonstrates that the research meets the high standard of quality expected in academic research and is eligible for inclusion in a peer-reviewed journal or publication.  
Visit the Ashford University Library for research tutorials and for assistance finding peer-reviewed sources.  When searching through the Library databases, be sure to limit your search results to peer reviewed articles (by checking the box next to “Scholarly (Peer-Reviewed) Journals”).  Peer-reviewed sources may be required for certain discussions and/or assignments in this course.  Additionally, all sources used to support your discussions and assignments, must have been published within the last five years.
