Big Dog's leadership styles

Task Name: Phase 2 Individual Project
Deliverable Length: 750-1000 words
Details: You are the supervisor of the clerical support assistant for the department. You have never had formal leadership responsibilities before, and you wish to maximize the possibility that you will be successful with this new responsibility. On your own (not at the direction of your supervisor), you investigate major leadership theories and models. Develop a Pro and Con list involving these theories/models. Reflect on each theory and comment on how the theory fits with your own personal style. For example - with a contingency style of leadership, perhaps this would not fit with someone's style if that person believes that all subordinates should be treated identically.

Ø Leadership: An Overview

Please submit your assignment.

Specifically, you need to consider:

All work (when using PowerPoint, especially in your speaker notes), submitted should always be written per APA expectations (paragraph/sentence structure, double spacing, proper grammar, title, abstract and reference pages, in text citations, appropriate introduction and conclusion paragraphs, spell out acronyms the first time it appears in your writing, write out numbers ten and below, etc.), and please don't use "chat room" language (i vs. I, 2 vs. two, UR vs. you are, etc.).

In your investigation, be sure to discuss the major leadership theories and models.

Develop a Pro and Con list involving these theories/models.

Reflect on each theory and comment on how the theory fits with your own personal style.

Since the deliverable length is 750 - 1000 words (exclusive of a title, abstract, and references), you will need to use MS Word to complete this assignment.

Always check your grammar/spelling before submitting your work.

The minimum length is set by the university and IS the minimum length. I count off for less than the minimum length, but not if you go over the minimum length

My job as an Online Teaching Assistant is to help you to do your assignment and definitely not do them for you. In fact, if I did 'do' some or all of your assignment for you I could be in big trouble with BrainMass or even worse fired from BrainMass because it clearly states that we are NOT to do it. In fact, BrainMass states "The student will quickly receive a detailed explanation from a qualified Online TA. Knowledge is valuable but only if it is untainted. The members of our community must have a common trait - they should all believe in fairness to the owners of original work and take the responsibility to do independent work. Online TAs help a great deal in limiting such morally-incorrect practices by informing students about plagiarism and how to cite and acknowledge others work correctly. The system is not intended to replace the many services already provided by professors and teaching assistants. It is intended to supplement the learning process by offering more timely and direct access to graduate-level assistance. The Online TA's have all been through undergraduate studies and understand better than anyone else where, when and how students get stumped. The job of the OTA is NOT to write an essay for the student, but to provide ideas, definitions, research help, and instructions on how the student should approach the problem." ***I put this message on ALL of my responses so if this does not apply to you please do not take offense for the reminder for those who have forgotten or may not realize. ***
BrainMass services are intended for assistance purposes only. The work provided by BrainMass Online TAs is NOT to be plagiarized. However, please feel free to source our Online TAs for research purposes using the following citing method:
[BrainMass Online TA Name], Online TA [OTA ID#], Posting Code [Posting Code], http://BrainMass.com (hyperlinked if submitted electronically), [Month], [Year].

This look's like an interesting assignment, though, so let's see where I can be helpful
