Purdue Global Leadership Styles: Motivating Employees Paper

Purdue Global Leadership Styles: Motivating Employees Paper

Unit 1 Individual Assignment

Individual Assignment (suggested level of effort: 1.5 hours)

Write a short paper identifying one or more of the leadership styles that most represent you that are listed in Section 3.4.5.1, PMBOK 6e. Once you identify the leadership style that describes you, conduct some research into that style and write a post that properly paraphrases or summarizes one or two references. This is not an exercise of writing what you think you know and understand about a leadership style, but rather conducting some research of existing literature (e.g., get copies of references found at the end of each chapter in CPM 4e) sources and presenting it using good grammar and coherent writing style.

You will be assessed on content (80 points) and in-text citation of references used for summarizing, paraphrasing and quoting and other writing mechanics (20 points). See Purdue OWL website for guidance on in-text citations. Content should primarily focus on material from literature with some linkage to examples in your own professional experience to demonstrate you understand the leadership style.

Mechanics: The paper should be a minimum of 400 words. Each reference should be listed at the end of the paper following APA guidelines. Online blogs are not acceptable references.

Your Instructor will use Turn-it-in to ensure your paper is authentic work. To avoid plagiarism, see the course home page for more information and use the Purdue Online Writing Lab to learn how to paraphrase, summarize and cite the references you use in all academic writing assignments.
