1. Read Sections 5 and 7 in Encouraging the heart: A leader’s guide to rewarding and recognizing others. 2. View John Maxwell’s 5 Levels of Leadership. 3. Reflect upon the The 5 Levels of Leadership and this statement: Is leadership learned or is it an innate attribute? Can one be taught to be a leader or are great leaders simply born as great leaders. Think about a great leader that you interacted with or observed. Create a list in response to the following questions; a) How did this person become a great leader? b) What characteristics do they exhibit which make them great leaders? c) Are there similar traits between what they exhibit and what you possess? 4. Review the PowerPoint Tutorial.
Main Task: Great Leaders Inspire Others to Do Great Things (10 points) For this task you will develop an informative PowerPoint presentation that defines the qualities, characteristics, and attributes of an effective leader.
The presentation should focus on the following:
•What makes one a great leader? •Are great leaders born or created? •How does one become a great leader? •What are the attributes of an effective leader? •What makes one an effective leader and why do others support a leader’s actions? •How do Maxwell’s five levels of leadership contribute to a success of an organization– especially levels 2, 3, and 4? Incorporate appropriate animations, transitions, and graphics as well as “speaker notes” for each slide. The speaker notes may be comprised of brief paragraphs or bulleted lists.
