My classmate wrote:
"I was stunned to read that in children between the ages of 10 and 14, suicide rates are the seventh leading cause of death and have "increased 70% since 1981" (Butcher, Mineka & Hooley, 2010, p. 263). In adolescents between 15 and 19, it is the third leading cause of death; not to mention suicide attempts which seem to increase year after year. Besides the reasons already discussed, like mood disorders or substance abuse, I would imagine the flood of hormones, the questions of self worth having to do with low self esteem and lack of life experience may be some additional factors making adolescents more susceptible to suicidal tendencies than adults. I agree that over time, a person learns about life, hopefully experiences some of the good things life has to offer and eventually matures. It also has to do with developing the coping skills needed to handle stress effectively. One question I would like to propose to the class is, do you believe the media may also be an influence on teens and young adults when it comes to suicide? And if so, how?"

My question is:

She broght up the topic of media influences, How would you see the media as involved here? Because some young celebrities are in the news after attempting or committing suicide? Are you suggesting a modeling effect?

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.

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
