Project #63541 - Critical Synthesis of Contemporary Views of Leadership

Resource: Graphic organizers on the Writing and Critical Thinking page located on the SAS PROGRAM Website.

Create a 12- to 18- slide using a presentation tool such as MICROSOFT® PowerPoint® or PREZI, synthesizing historical and contemporary contexts of leadership. Include detailed speaker notes. Use complete sentences in the speaker notes, with correct grammar and punctuation, to fully explain each slide as if you were giving an in-person presentation.

Select a contemporary leader who worked through a specific leadership model to mobilize large groups of people within the current context.

Include the following in your presentation:

  • Provide the current context of the leader you selected.
  • Explain what characteristics make them a good leader and how they fit within the contemporary context.
  • Describe the leadership actions they took.
  • Explain how this leader has inspired and mobilized others.
  • Compare the contemporary leader and historical leader you selected. Create a visual organizer to show the relationship between the two leaders and their leadership model.
  • If the leaders were active in different historical contexts, would he or she be as successful? Why or why not?
  • Drawing on your prior analytical and evaluative work of historical and contemporary views of leadership, identify two additional leadership characteristics you would like to develop.
  • Explain how you have been influenced by the social forces around you in your own leadership development.
  • Create two questions for your personal leadership development.

Note. The final three items require critical synthesis of all you have learned thus far. Critical synthesis places the focus of prior analytical and evaluative work into a coherent whole that incorporates your original insights and contributions

Include images and references to support your presentation.

your presentation consistent with APA guidelines.


Each week in this course, you will engage your thoughts and abilities as a scholar, a practitioner, and a leader to advance your knowledge and personal academic agenda. These weekly reflections help you position yourself as a reflexive thinking scholar, practitioner, and leader. Consider saving these weekly statements, which serve as a critical reflection upon your growth as a scholar, practitioner, and leader throughout the program.


Create a reflective and applied statement describing how the week's learning has affected your thought processes, development, and professional disposition. This statement should reflect your personal learning process--challenges, moments of discovery, life experiences, and interactions.


In the weekly reflections, you are encouraged to ask critical questions. Asking and reviewing your questions is an integral part of critical thinking and the learning process. By asking questions, you can demonstrate your own forwards learning process and make your thinking visible.


You may also include questions for the course facilitator regarding material that may still be unclear in your reflection. Ideally, you will use these reflections throughout the course and the program to document your development as a scholar, practitioner, and leader, and to reflect critically on the changes that occur during this process.


Format any citations and references in your reflective statement consistent with APA guidelines.
