Leadership and Change
Highlight the most prominent situations affecting leadership from the Industrial Age to the Information Age. Consider how these situations affect an organization with which you are affiliated (or of which you have knowledge), and discuss what your leadership approach to change would be in response to these situations.
Leaders inspire and encourage their followers to reach objectives they have deemed important. The ability to empower others to reach these objectives is a key skill of a leader. Using the overview of transformational and transactional leadership provided in this week’s lecture and readings, discuss the concept of empowerment and the best practices associated with empowerment.

Discussion Boards Scholarly writing is required for all discussion posts and assignments, which includes using APA formatted references and citations. Discussion question responses must be at least 300 words and cite research to support your response. Please be sure to answer all parts of the questions. Your textbook is a good resource, but I expect each student to find additional scholarly research in the university library to use in your discussion responses. Each assignment will have special requirements so be sure to thoroughly read and understand the instructions. APA citations and formatting is required on all written assignments. Other guidelines on assignments include the following: • Check spelling, grammar, and punctuation to avoid any point deductions related to these matters. • I expect students to use at least one scholarly, credible and relevant source for each discussion response as this practice is essential for completing tasks successfully. Sources can include course textbook and at least one scholarly outside source per the grading rubrics. For example, websites such as ehow.com are not considered a scholarly source. • Remember that all discussion responses are submitted to Turnitin to check for originality. Please ensure your work is original and produced by you.
