This course revolves around ethical leadership and management. The primary topic of this paper is to explore the influence of followers upon leaders and vice versa in the context of leadership burnout.
For example, will a lack of good followers provoke more rapid leader burnout?
Will leaders entering burnout drive good followers away or draw opportunists?
HOW is ethics involved in this situation?
The paper should be a thoughtful analysis and not a general summary of the topic. It should also include at least three leadership theories and exhibit solid reasoning – correctly citing and applying the concepts, principles, and theories of ethics and leadership.
Seek to creatively APPLY leadership theory. The paper work must be more than a mere review of facts and articles. It must demonstrate reasoning by APPLYING at least three relevant theories and models together to analyze the topic.
Discuss the implications of your findings above, especially for managers CONCLUSION – Restate your conclusions and sum up, in about on half-page REFERENCES APPENDICES (optional) In choosing a topic, avoid shallow, insipid generalities ( e.g. “the importance of leadership”)
Choose a topic of current importance that has not already been overdone. Also, where possible, exemplify your concepts and conclusions by consistently referring to a single, real, focal leader (Avoid US Presidents and generals).
