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.
