Interactive Activity: Transformational Leadership in Action (5 points)
Select a well-known contemporary leader or use one of the transformational leaders mentioned in this chapter (Gandhi, Ryan White, Terry Fox, Martin Luther King Jr., John F. Kennedy, or Nelson Mandela). And answer the questions below:
- How does this leader use talk to transform a situation? Specifically, how does the leader engage with others through talk? Create a connection with others through talk? Raise the level of morality in a group through talk? Attend to the needs and motives of followers through talk? Help followers reach their fullest potential through talk?
If you select a contemporary leader (and there are a number of them with what weâ€™re dealing with now. Our governor, Mike Dewine is very interesting to me). You can also answer the questions above or your analysis could be a short (max 2 page, double-spaced) reaction paper on how that person is demonstrating transformational leadership. Your analysis should describe how the leader shows transformational leadership, providing specific examples and explaining the leaderâ€™s effectiveness. You should also discuss how transformational leadership theory provides a useful way to understand the leadership shown by this individual.
