Assignment Purpose:

In the first four weeks of this class the students have examined the difference between leadership in the 20th and 21st century. They have examined the need for leaders to develop leadership styles and presence as a way to help build followers. Also, the need to build trust for relationship building in the organization was examined. Globalization movement in the industry was the final discussion topic which examines the unique leadership challenges in the 21st century.

For this assignment, students will research several business leaders to discover their views on leadership skills needed for the 21st century. The purpose of this assignment is to have the students demonstrate their understanding of the challenges and skills needed for the 21st century leader.

Assignment Instructions:

Step 1: Review the assignment instructions carefully.

Step 2: Review the grading rubric for the assignment carefully.

Step 3: Choose a large, medium and small size companies to examine. Pick leaders from each company. Submit your choices of leaders for approval by the Professor in the discussion area – Week 2.

Step 4: In completing the paper, research prominent business leaders and their views on the leadership skills needed for the 21st century. Respond to the following items:
•Select at least one large corporation (fortune 500 company) leader, one medium sized (other public companies), and one small business (any company with one million dollar revenue) leader and compare and contrast their viewpoints.
•In separate paragraphs, describe each leaders view on 21st century leadership using primary source video or written interviews on their opinions of 21st century leadership (Refrain from providing a biography or a discussion of the businesses they lead).
•Evaluate the remarks of the leaders with respect to leadership styles, skills, and business landscape of the future.
•Compare each leader’s views and contrast them with the reading for weeks 1-4.

NOTE: In the case of personal interviews with business leaders, the questions must be cleared with the professor ahead of time and added to the paper as appendices.

Step 5: Write down or highlight key facts from the interviews. Consider making an outline to capture key points in the paper.

Step 6: Create a Word or Rich Text Format (RTF) document that is double-spaced, 12-point font. The final product will be between 4-5 pages in length excluding the title page and the reference page.

Step 7: Follow this format:
•Title page with title, your name, the course, the instructor’s name;
•Introduction paragraph (must induce a description of the leaders chosen). The introductory paragraph is the first paragraph of the paper but is typically written after writing the body of the paper. View this website to learn how to write an introductory paragraph: http://www.writing.ucsb.edu/faculty/donelan/intro.html;
•Body part addressing the items from step # 4.
•Summary paragraph. A summary paragraph restates the main idea(s) of the paper. Make sure to leave a reader with a sense that the paper is complete. The summary paragraph is the last paragraph of a paper.

Step 8: In writing a formal paper it should be done in the third person. What this means is that there are no words such as “I, me, my, we, or us” (first person writing), nor is there use of “you or your” (second person writing). If uncertain how to write in the third person, view this link: http://www.quickanddirtytips.com/education/grammar/first-second-and-third-person

Step 9: In writing this assignment, students are asked to support the reasoning using in-text citations and a reference list. A reference within a reference list cannot exist without an associated in-text citation and vice versa. View the sample APA paper under Week 1 content.

Step 10: In writing this assignment, students are expected to paraphrase and not use direct quotes. Learn to paraphrase by reviewing this link: https://writing.wisc.edu/Handbook/QPA_paraphrase2.html

Step 11: Using the grading rubric as a comparison, read through the paper to ensure all required elements are presented.

Step 12: Proofread the paper for spelling and grammatical issues, and third person writing.
•Use the spell and grammar check in Word as a first measure;
•Have someone who has excellent English skills to proof the paper;
•Consider submitting the paper to the Effective Writing Center (EWC). The EWC will provide 4-6 areas that may need improvement.

Step 13: Submit the paper in the Assignment Folder.
