21st Century Leadership
worth 300 points
The 20th and 21st centuries have produced many business leaders,
such as corporate giants like Jack Welch of GE, Daymond John of FUBU, Steve
Jobs of Apple, and Herb Kelleher of Southwest. In addition, many hip-hop moguls
have risen to prominence, such as Sean Combs, aka P Diddy, of Bad Boy Records;
Russell Simmons, founder of Def Jam; and Sean Carter, aka Jay Z, of Rock
Regardless of their business models and industries,
organizational leaders are expected to create realistic visions for their
companies and the people that they guide. However, such visions often result in
vastly different leadership styles. Therefore, experts have concluded that
there is no one best leadership style geared towards guiding employees and
companies to accomplishing organizational goals.
Using the Internet and databases, research your favorite senior
executive (CEO, CFO, COO, Director, President, Founder, etc.) from any
organization that has made a strong impact on his or her industry (fashion,
music, food, banking, technology, automotive, etc.).
Write a six to eight (6-8) page paper in which you:
the overall leadership style(s) of your chosen senior executive.
the organizational structure and culture of the company your chosen
executive has led, or is currently leading, and determine the company’s
approach to human capital management and employee development. Next,
explain whether or not you believe your chosen senior executive’s
leadership approach has enhanced workplace productivity and the shared
vision of the organization. Provide one to two (1-2) examples of your
chosen senior executive’s actions to support your response.
the effectiveness of your selected leader’s performance, based on his or
her ethical conduct and effective communication. Next, determine whether
the chosen leader was successful in motivating and empowering his or her
employees and gaining customer loyalty.
three (3) best practices that other organizational leaders can use in
order to motivate employees and transform their company, based on
practices that you believe made your chosen leader successful at his or
her company and within his or her industry. Support your rationale with an
explanation of the potential benefits that other business leaders may reap
from your chosen best practices.
