Leadership Profile Assignment

Research one of the following individuals that you feel has demonstrated leadership qualities. There are three parts to this assignment: 1. A biography. You should know something about this person’s life. That would include birth date and death (if applicable), where they lived and a few circumstances about their life. What they accomplished over their lifetime and what leadership qualities does the person have? We have talked about many different leadership characteristics; include some that pertain to the person that you have chosen. 2. Presentation. You will be responsible for presenting your findings in class in an informational and interesting format. Your presentation should be about 15 minutes in length, and you are acting as the teacher of the class during this time. Visuals are a necessity to properly convey your message. Consider the use of the whiteboard, overhead, handouts, power point or any other teaching tools you are familiar with. 3. Reference list. It is necessary to cite EVERY source that you get your information from including any pictures that you choose to use. Failure to do this will result in a zero for your entire project.
