Question description


This assignment is divided into three parts

·  Part one requires you to compare and contrast Trait Leadership Theory with Situational Leadership, highlighting the advantages and disadvantages of both perspectives. A discussion on the evolution of leadership theory over the last 60 years would be useful.

You will then interview these heads of department. The purpose is to determine which leadership framework is used more in your organization.

·  Part three requires you to analyse the responses to your questionnaire and produce a high quality, concise report on your findings that will be presented in a 1-1 discussion.
