Learning Goal: I’m working on a management multi-part question and need an explanation and answer to help me learn.
1. Using the terms, concepts and theories covered in this course, discuss how an awareness of The Northwood Idea might help a person develop as a leader. Go to The Northwood Idea, scroll down until you see “Attributes.” Start reading there and continue to the bottom of The Northwood Idea. minimum of 250
2.Suppose you came up with a new product or idea that landed you on the Shark Tank TV program. You were successful in getting the funding you asked for from your favorite shark. Now you can proceed full speed into growing your business. What leadership skills will you want to further develop to help your organization grow and prosper in a global marketplace? Why is it important for you to grow these skills? Lastly, what do you think is the most important skill for a leader to have? Why?
In addition to the Maxwell text and workbook, use at least one other resource to support your discussion.
3.The articles I selected from the WSJ now need a subscription for access. Therefore, I have selected two (free) articles from the Gallup website that deal with the culture of leadership. (You may get a message that the article is outside the NU website. If so just click on the link under that message.)
Read each article and write about each in this format:
What is the topic/thesis of the article?
Discuss each of the article’s main points.
How does (or does not) the author’s main points coincide with the contents of this course?
What did you find useful in the article that will help you be a better leader now and/or in the future?
Be sure to reference your two articles so I know which ones you are writing about.
