Guidelines for Assignment #2: “Do You Have the Will to Lead?”
Read the article “Do You Have the Will to Lead?” by Polly LaBarre, linkedbelow: http://www.fastcompany.com/38853/do-you-have-will-lead Philosopher Peter Koestenbaum (www.pib.net) on his thoughts on leadership. Koestenbaum devotes much of his thinking to the philosophical side of leadership.
Use essay format with introduction and conclusion and address the following:
1). Discuss two of Koestenbaum’s concepts that are most meaningful to you. Please include direct quotations of passages that are most relevant to you. Explain why you feel strongly about these ideas.
2). He also discusses “four dimensions of leadership” (vision, reality, ethics, and courage). Which two dimensions pertain most to you? Discuss why they pertain to you.
3). Which of his concepts do you see connecting closely to recent lectures? (explain).
