WEEK 3: YOUR LEADER IN THE CONTEXT OF MOTIVATIONAL THEORIES
This week you will examine the motivational concepts from Chapter 8 and show how your chosen leader either applied or missed applying these concepts.
Research a situation your leader faced while at the head of his or her current or previous organization. Using the concepts outlined in Chapter 8, analyze the leader’s actions through the lens of the motivational theories and argue that the leader’s actions were appropriate or inappropriate in the context of the theories.
Be sure to use actual examples from the literature and cite your sources appropriately. Be sure to include extensive research outside the textbook and also to cite the textbook correctly including page numbers. You are expected to use at least two academic or business sources other than your textbook each week.
