Military Leadership (MIL301)
You will need to address how your selected leader has used strategies, styles, and qualities of past Maverick Leaders and how they have had to adapt those strategies, qualities, and styles to work in the contemporary operating environment.
Powerpoint presentation which contains your work/analysis concerning how your chosen leader’s strategies, styles, behaviors, and qualities as compared to past Maverick Leaders were adapted to work in the contemporary operating environment.
We have discussed strategies and tactics, leadership styles and traits, behaviors, and qualities; we discussed great leaders of many nations such as Sun Tzu, George Washington, Rommel, Montgomery and most recently Douglas MacArthur. You have also had a chance to analyze a modern or contemporary leader who has had an impact in Desert Storm or in the War on Terror. It is time to put it all together; to compare the old with the new; to analyze historical data for its relevance to today’s fight or tomorrow’s battles; synthesize the leaders’ actions, qualities, and traits of long ago and determine their place in the battles still to come.
Assess a contemporary leader’s strengths and weaknesses based on his skills, traits, values and knowledge of tactics and strategy compared to multiple historical leaders. (CO #3 & 4)
In this assignment, you will build a presentation showing the efforts of that research and your analysis. Think of this assignment as a way to organize your research and prepare you to write your final paper.
Please create a 10-slide voice-over presentation (5-7 minutes) with notes formatted in APA format based off the leader you select, thesis, and your subsequent research displaying your leader’s strategies, styles, behaviors, and qualities of past Maverick Leaders and how they have had to adapt those strategies, qualities, and styles to work in the contemporary operating environment. This presentation should also address examples of your leader’s ability to successfully navigate the strategic or operational environment in which they were placed.
