Instructions and Grading Rubric
As you are discovering throughout the course, there are many different ways of conceptualizing leadership and many theoretical approaches to leadership. The Leadership Theory Presentation Assignment gives you an opportunity to explore one of these theories in detail. For this assignment, you will choose one of the following leadership theories to research and present on: (1) Path-Goal Theory – Ch. 6, (2) Leader-Member Exchange Theory – Ch. 7, (3) Transformational Leadership – Ch. 8, (4) Authentic Leadership – Ch. 9, (5) Servant Leadership – Ch. 10, and (6) Adaptive Leadership – Ch. 11.
Using Zoom, (or another recording tool of your choice), you will prepare and record a 10-15 minute presentation on your chosen theory. Your presentation should include visual aids (ex: PowerPoint slides or Prezi). You will submit your assignments via the assignment link. As part of the assignment, you will be assigned as a peer reviewer on five other presentations (covering the five theories that you did not present on), and will provide comments and feedback on those five presentations. This way, you will get exposure to all six of the different theories while only having to examine one in-depth.
