[SOLVED] Characteristics of the authentic leader
Please answer the questions below in essay format (no bullet points, please). The suggested paragraph count for each question only gives you an idea of the expected level of detail. But quality counts more than quantity, and be as specific as possible with the concepts (for example, if you discuss authentic leadership, discuss the specific characteristics of the authentic leader, if you select emotional intelligence, discuss the dimension of EI).
ALL THE BEST!
Elon Musk is a controversial figure but arguably one of the most influential leaders of our times. I selected him for the finals because, despite his flaws, he is a gamechanger, and I think his heart is in the right place. But leadership does have an element of subjectivity, so feel free to disagree, but explain why.
Use the FOUR “distinct” concepts (authentic leadership, transformational leadership, psychological empowerment theory of motivation, and growth mindset) which are most relevant in explaining Musk’s long-term success as an entrepreneur/leader. Please give specific examples from the readings to justify your choice of concepts. (6 points) (one paragraph for each concept)
Briefly discuss how the following leadership theories apply or do not apply to Musk’s leadership style: Situational theory and path-goal theory. Discuss using specific facts from the readings. Which seems to be his favored leadership style (if these theories don’t apply to Musk, which theory might explain his leadership style?)? And how does it explain his success? (3 points) (2 paragraphs)
Do you agree with the NYT article that Musk is winging it? Why? Why not? Does the first reading contradict the NYT article? Now that Musk will also be leading Twitter, he will need an expanded set of leadership skills. What would be your top three recommendations if Musk hires you as a leadership consultant? Why? Discuss using concepts from the course and facts from the readings. (3 points, two paragraphs)
