Assignment week 4

Application: Final Project Proposal

Throughout your life, most likely you have observed leaders who rose above others (in your estimation) in terms of how well they managed people, problems, and challenges. These leaders are everywhere—whether it’s the community volunteer who starts a clothes drive for disaster victims in her state or the manager who achieves consensus from employees on a major innovation that will change the way an organization operates. What combination of abilities, behaviors, strategies, styles, and other factors enabled these leaders to effectively improve processes and outcomes?

The assignment (2–3 pages)

This week, for your assignment, you submit the second part of the Final Project, the Final Project Proposal, which is a 2- to 3-page (not including the Interview Consent Form) paper describing the leader you propose to interview and why you chose this leader for your Final Project. Also submit a list of interview questions you have created to ask him or her as well as the Interview Consent Form provided in Learning Resources for Week 1. Please be sure your Final Project Proposal adheres to the criteria stated in the Final Project Guidelines document.

Be sure to support your assignment with specific references to the resources and other current literature in the Walden Library. Use at least two scholarly sources from the library that were published within the past 5 years to support your paper.
