A project that compares 2 executives from the same domain. In this paper and report, you should connect the executive’s techniques to course content from the leadership text and to your personal assessment of the executive’s strengths and weaknesses.
Purpose: Identify two executives from the same industry and compare their leadership traits,
styles, and strategies. Examples of executive pairs might be CEO’s in the same industry. The
executives you pick should be researched through books, academic/scholarly articles, popular
press, or company websites (I do not want a reference list full of Wikipedia sources). The
executives can come from a publicly traded organization, a sports organization, a non-profit
organization, etc. The sections in the project might include, but are not limited to the following:
Introduction; Executive’s background; Description of the executive’s organization; Leadership
traits, styles, and strategies-relate the executive to the course content (theories, models,
frameworks); Your perspective of their effectiveness; Your recommendations for improvement
on the tactics used by the executive; Of the two which would you prefer to lead you?
