grading book (you can participate either way to get a full score for that week). 6 weeks of full score leads to 100% of participation evaluation in the final grades. Detail requirement of discussion board participation is posted on-line. “Apprentice” Project Each week, we will invite two groups to present a leadership analysis based on apprentice clips of their choice. The task is to conduct a content analysis of these clips (2-3 clips). In addition, you are to summarize the major lessons for effective leadership in the show and document your analysis/findings with clips. As a general principle, it is better to pick two to three episodes that provide clear illustrations of your points, rather than by exhaustively analyzing too many episodes. You should construct an oral presentation to the class (10-minutes) The total clip time will not exceed 50% of the total presentation time in order to have enough time for analysis. Not two groups can choose any of the same clips (i.e., all clips must be different)! As soon as you have a specific clip you think works, e-mail the teaching assistant and me to secure your choice. It is first come first served regarding clip selections. You will need to submit the PPT slides and video clips by midnight on the class day over Canvas . More specific instructions are posted on Canvas. Group Research Project Think of your team as organizational consultants. Your goal is to improve organizational performance through dealing with the leadership issues . Students will examine an actual organizational leader of their choice, diagnose the problem(s), and recommend a solution(s). The main objective of the project is to provide students with an opportunity to: (1) Develop an in-depth understanding of an organizational leader through case research. 4

(2) Develop consultancy skills in data gathering, analysis, and communication. Sources : The boundaries are those of imagination. The possibilities include personal work experience, interviews with leaders and members of an organization, questionnaires, observations of workplace behavior, analysis of organizational documents, trade journals, academic journals, local newspapers, and the business press (e.g., Business Week , Forbes , Fortune , Wall Street Journal ). Do not, however, use a “pre-packaged” case (e.g., from a textbook or casebook). Also, sources must be cited carefully, since plagiarism could result in a failing grade for the course (for all team members), in addition to possible disciplinary action by the School/University. There are two deliverables in this project: 1) a 15-minute presentation on the findings you have. 2) a research paper that include your questions, findings, and more detail analysis (up to 10 pages). See detail requirement in Appendix Peer Evaluation You will rate your group peers’ contribution to your group project (i.e., group paper, presentation, and other activities). The rating is a percentage a rater thinks a group peer deserves out of the group’s scores on all group projects. It can be anywhere between 0% and 100% for a group peer. For example, if you believe that all peers in

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
