Details:

This assignment asks you to analyze various companies’ mission or organizational vision statements to determine how such statements guide leadership practices within an organization.

Select a mission statement or organizational vision statement from one company that professes to practice servant leadership and one that practices a standard leadership model. Some well-known companies that practice servant leadership are Southwest Airlines, REI, and Aflac. Conduct additional research to locate others.

Once you have selected two companies, write a 1,000-1,250 word analysis that addresses the following:

  1. Compare and contrast the mission and/or organizational visions statements of the two companies. What are the similarities and differences? How do you think these statements impact the culture of each organization?
  2. What servant leadership principles or values are either explicitly or implicitly apparent in the mission/vision statement of the company that professes to be servant-led?
  3. Explain how you see the principles expressed in the statements manifested in each company’s public reputation, and how they treat their employees in the services they provide, their marketing, etc. Provide a few specific examples to demonstrate your points.
  4. Do you think each company is living out the values/principles expressed in their statements? Why or why not? If the more traditionally led company adopted a servant leadership model, what revisions to their mission/values statement would be warranted? Be sure to comment on your understanding of how such mission/vision statements can or should guide a company’s treatment of its employees and clients.
    Include the mission or organizational vision statements of the companies you selected in your analysis.

You are required to locate four articles that support your selected organization’s mission or vision statement. Two of the selected articles must be peer reviewed journal articles. Include information from the articles in your discussion.

GC PSC410 Week 7 CLC – Profiles in Leadership Presentation

Details:

This is a Collaborative Learning Community (CLC) assignment.

The class will be placed by the instructor into groups. Each team member will personally interview one leader of his/her choice. Examples of leaders can include, but are not limited to, former or current managers or supervisors, educational leaders, civic/business leaders, and religious leaders. This interview can take place via phone, via e-mail, or in person.

To ensure that the interviews yield comparable results, the team must prepare a list of questions to ask the chosen leaders (interviewees). As a team, choose four questions from the list below:

  1. What are the most important qualities an effective leader should have?
  2. What is the importance of trust in leadership?
  3. What are the qualities you want most in an employee? Why?
  4. Who has had the most influence on how you lead? Why?
  5. In what areas would you like to improve your leadership?
  6. How do your employees react to your leadership?
  7. Have you engaged in 360-degree feedback? If so, what has been the result?
  8. What is the role of effective communication in leadership?
  9. How would you rate yourself at being able to communicate with all your important stakeholders?
    In addition to the four interview questions your team will use from the above list, as a group, generate two more questions, for a total of six interview questions. Please note: Each team member is required to ask his/her chosen leaders the same interview questions so you must decide as a team which questions you will ask.

After conducting the interview, each team member will individually create a leadership profile of his/her chosen leader within a PowerPoint presentation (5-6 slides). Be sure to include the following in your individual leadership profile:

  1. A slide that introduces your chosen leader
  2. A summary of the answers to the interview questions
  3. A description of the leadership model with which the leader seems most closely aligned
    After creating your individual leadership profile, the team will then compile all team members’ individual slide sets for a group PowerPoint presentation of 22-26 slides (based on a four-person group). Be sure to include the following in your team compilation of leadership profiles:

  4. A summary that describes any characteristics of servant leadership that are displayed by any of the leaders.

  5. Other commonalities among the leaders, in terms of values, beliefs, and impact on the community.
    Note: The team compilation will add one or two additional slides for a total of 22-26 (based on a four-person group).

APA format is required for essays only. Solid academic writing is always expected. For all assignment delivery options, documentation of sources should be presented using APA formatting guidelines, which can be found in the APA Style Guide, located in the Student Success Center.
