Swamped with your writing assignments? Take the weight off your shoulder!
Please answer the following questions based on the Week 5 readings and videos, as well as your personal experience and beliefs. This is an opportunity to reflect and consider what it means to lead, what it means to be led, and what leadership roles you might take on in the future and how you’ll approach those roles.
Are leaders born or made? Some of you will choose born, some of you will choose made, and MOST of you will choose a combination of the two. If you think it is a combination, discuss which attributes of a leader are innate and what attributes are developed. You can instead discuss when and/or why some are innate or developed.
Do you need to be “smart” to lead others? What attributes do you need, without exception?
Discuss how context influences leadership and leaders. Was the leadership exhibited by Mother Theresa the same as the leadership exhibited by Steve Jobs or Abraham Lincoln? How so? Are leaders more impacted by their situations or do leaders have more impact on their situations?
