This assignment has two deliverables:
Think back (do some research) through the history of the United States—1770 to 2012. No POLITICAL leaders after 2012.
Identify a person who you think was a successful leader. Identify and explain five reasons why you think the person was/is a successful leader.
Identify a person who you think was an unsuccessful leader. Identify and explain five reasons why you think the person was/is unsuccessful.
Your discussion of each leader should include comments about how the results your research meshes with this course and what you learned as take-aways from this assignment. Properly cite and reference at least two sources for each part–A and B.
For this assignment you are to create a matrix (grid—a collection of lines that cross each other to form a series of squares or rectangles) that show characteristics of leaders vs. managers. Here’s an example:
Has local responsibilities
Has entire organizational responsibilities
At least twelve characteristics (12 in each column) should be given in the matrix. Provide a brief summary (150 to 200 words) of your characteristics comparing and contrasting managers and leaders. Use at least two sources to research the characteristics. Your sources need to be properly referenced in APA format.
