Project #24536 - Leadership Moment Analysis Essay 2

Most of the instruction will be based on Michael Useem's book, "The Leadership Moment" (attached in word doc.).   It is based on the learning theory that one of the most effective ways of preparing for leadership challenges is by looking at what others have done when their own leadership was on the line.  As the author notes, "By examining their experiences and asking what they did and what they could have done, and by wondering what you would have done yourself, you can better anticipate what you should do when faced with your own leadership challenges."

Paper Requirements

Each paper should contain four sections.  The first section of the paper summarizes the leadership moment episode.  Present the facts of the case, the decisions facing the leader, and the actions that were taken.

The next section of the paper should identify the key leadership issues that were presented in the case.  In selecting your issues, remember that I am not presuming a precise definition of leadership.  There are many definitions, and when you read this literature you learn that leadership is not only about doing the right thing; it is also about making decisions when it is least clear what course of action should be followed.  Its sometimes about creating or changing a vision, bringing others along or mobilizing them to get a job done, and making a difference.  Choose your issues carefully.

The third part of the case assessing the leadership strengths and weaknesses of the prime character in the episode.  Did they do the right thing?  What were the implications for them, their organization, or in some instances, their country or the world?  In hindsight, could they have made different choices that would have enhanced their position of leadership?

The fourth part of the paper is a personal statement about what you have learned about  your own leadership traits from this leadership moment. Do you think you could have performed in a similar situation with similar outcomes.  If not, what would you need to work on to be effective in this situation?  Does it present any implications for your personal leadership style, for example, in the way to want to deal with people (superiors or subordinates), with the public, or with competitors in the marketplace.    

The paper should not exceed 10 double typed pages. Any additional references can be added on an additional page.
