Leadership Theory Analysis and Application

Assignment 2: LASA: Leadership Theory Analysis and Application

Description of LASA:

In this assignment, you will review current literature on the leadership theories of your choosing. In addition, you will apply these theories to an organization of your choosing.

Instructions:

Based on your reading and your research on the topic of leadership, in this assignment you will choose at least three leadership theories and will provide a detailed analysis of each of the theories. This analysis will include your evaluation of the theories and a discussion on which of the theories would work best in your organization. Your evaluation and analysis must include at least six peer reviewed academic sources. You can locate these sources through the reading list for the course and through the Argosy Online Library.

  1. Choose a minimum of three leadership theories from the materials in the course. These could  include Path Goal Theory, Contingency Theory, Transformational Leadership Theory, Member Leader Theory, Team Leadership Theory, and Psychodynamic Leadership Theory, to name a few. For each of your chosen theories, use at least two peer reviewed journal articles that discuss the attributes of the theory. Your sources should generally be no more than 5 years old.
  2. Develop an introduction on the background of each of your theories and discuss the advantages and disadvantages of each of the theories.
  3. Analyze all articles and describe the key themes that emerge across the three theories.
  4. Based on your analysis of the literature, identify which leadership approach would be most successful within your chosen organization. You could identify a combination of two or three theories that would work best in your organization, but be sure to provide rationale as to why the combination would be most effective. Be sure to justify your choices.

Your final product will be a Word document, approximately 8–10 pages long. Make sure you write in a clear, concise, and organized manner; demonstrate ethical scholarship in accurate representation and attribution of sources; and display accurate spelling, grammar, and punctuation. Apply APA standards to citation of sources.
