Leadership

Module by: Debbie Gulick, Patrick Frantz, Cheryl Matherly. E-mail the authors

Summary: Leadership is an ambiguous term; it is defined differently depending on cultural beliefs, organizational culture, generations and personal beliefs. To become an effective and efficient leader, it is important to take all of this into consideration. You can put leaders on a continuum and look at their success and styles. The best example of this would be George W. Bush and the Dalai Lama. Both leaders are thought to be extremely effective and efficient by many people in their country and from around the world (note this is just a comparison of different leadership styles) and to analyze their different leadership techniques and styles is fascinating. What kind of leader do you want to be? The following articles will give you parameters by which you can view and analyze the leadership of the Singapore and Japan, the leadership within companies we visit and the leadership from your home country. It is important during your INNOVATE experience to think about the list of leadership skills/attributes and to fill out your personal Leadership Worksheet. This is a work in progress and something we hope you continue to modify throughout your career and life to develop yourself into a global technical leader. To begin the Leadership Module, please take time to write in your journal now about leadership. How do you define a leader? What leaders do you admire and why? How do you think leadership styles compare and contrast in Singapore and Japan? Enjoy this module!

This is a module about leadership.
