You just completed the first topic in your PSC-410 or MGT-410 class. You are excited about what you have learned so far. You try to share your excitement with your supervisor and tell him/her you are taking a servant leadership class. His/her response is, “Servant leadership is overrated. You can’t get any real work done that way, you know. Coddling people and being a soft leader will not get you very far.” You brush off the remark but decide to revisit the subject with him/her later because you believe he/she has the wrong view about servant leadership. How do you think you would approach your supervisor on the subject? What should you say?

MGT 410 Topic 1 Leadership and Management Models

Review “Example Leadership Models.” As you review the models, consider what you think are the most significant differences between servant leadership models and other models. Then either create your own graphic to visually represent your understanding of servant leadership or revise one of the existing graphics so that it better represents your understanding. If you revise an existing model, be sure to credit the original source.

Once you have created your model, compose a brief analysis (500 words) that addresses the following:

  1. What are the unique characteristics of servant leadership and how do these elements make it different from other leadership models?
  2. Define the paradox of servant leadership, and explain where you see this paradox present in your own representation.
  3. Based on your understanding of effective leadership, how do you think your representation captures those qualities or characteristics necessary to lead effectively?

Submit the graphic of your model with the written analysis.

MGT 410 Topic 2 Service Project Experience – TO and Online

Find an opportunity to demonstrate servant leadership in an organization or community through volunteering or serving others. Your goal is to serve the selected organization or entity for at least a total of four hours. Submit a summary (1-2 paragraphs) of your intended servant leadership activity for approval by the instructor. Include the name of the organization and contact information for the organizational leader. You will use this experience as the basis for the CLC presentation in Topic 4. You will need to take pictures during your service project experience for the presentation. You will also need to submit a “Service Project Consent Letter” signed by a representative of the organization.

Consider the following quote from Robert K. Greenleaf as you complete the service project: “The difference manifests itself in the care taken by the servant-first to make sure that other people’s highest priority needs are being served. The best test, and difficult to administer, is: Do those served grow as persons? Do they, while being served, become healthier, wiser, freer, more autonomous, more likely themselves to become servants? And, what is the effect on the least privileged in society? Will they benefit or at least not be further deprived.”

MGT 410 Topic 3 Servant Leadership in Diverse Contexts

While servant leadership is often associated with Christianity and the Bible, one could argue that it is compatible with most religions and philosophies and that it transcends cultures. This assignment presents you with an opportunity to explore other cultures, philosophies, and religions and asks you to think critically about how servant leadership practices are apparent in other religions and cultures.

Select one cultural context. Also select one religious viewpoint. You may not select Islam, Judaism, Buddhism, or Christianity, including any of its denominations or traditions such as Eastern Orthodoxy and Roman Catholicism.

Examine how the principles of servant leadership are evident in that chosen culture and in that chosen religion. In an essay (1,250-1,500 words), identify similarities and differences between servant leadership’s philosophies and the values evident in the selected cultural context and religious viewpoint. Be sure to provide specific examples of practices and/or values in your discussion.

You are required to locate a total of four articles that address servant leadership in your chosen cultural context and religious viewpoint. Two of the articles should examine servant leadership from a different cultural perspective and two articles should examine servant leadership from a different religious perspective. Be sure to select academic articles from reputable sources that are 10-20 pages in length. Include information from the articles in your discussion.

Prepare this assignment according to the guidelines found in the APA Style Guide, located in the Student Success Center. An abstract is not required.

MGT 410 Topic 6 CLC – Vision and Mission Statements Analysis

This is a Collaborative Learning Community (CLC) assignment.

The instructor will place students into groups.

This assignment asks you to analyze various companies’ organizational vision and mission statements to determine how such statements guide leadership practices within an organization. The vision statement reflects a desired future state worthy of pursuing, while the mission statement is what is done almost daily in order to eventually realize the vision.

Select a vision and mission statement from one company that professes to practice servant leadership and one that practices a standard leadership model. Some well-known companies that practice servant leadership are Southwest Airlines, REI, and Aflac. Conduct additional research to locate others.

Once you have selected two companies, write an analysis (1,000-1,250 words) that addresses the following:

  1. Compare the vision and mission statements of the two companies. What are the similarities and differences? How do you think these statements impact the culture of each organization?
  2. What servant leadership principles or values are either explicitly or implicitly apparent in the vision and mission statements of the company that professes to be servant-led?
  3. Explain how you see the principles or values expressed in the statements manifested in each company’s public reputation, and how they treat their employees in the services they provide, their marketing, etc. Provide a few specific examples to demonstrate your points.
  4. Do you think each company is living out the principles or values expressed in their statements? Why or why not? If the more traditionally led company adopted a servant leadership model, what revisions to their vision and mission statements would be warranted? Be sure to comment on your understanding of how such vision and mission statements can or should guide a company’s treatment of its employees and clients.

Include the vision and mission statements of the companies you selected in your analysis.

You are required to locate four articles that support your selected organization’s vision and mission statements. Two of the selected articles must be peer review journal articles. Include information from the articles in your discussion.

MGT 410 Topic 8 CLC – Profiles in Leadership Presentation

This is a Collaborative Learning Community (CLC) assignment.

The instructor will place students into groups. Each member of the CLC group will personally choose and interview one leader. You may not interview a family member. Examples of leaders include, but are not limited to, former or current managers or supervisors, educational leaders, civic/business leaders, and religious leaders. This interview can take place over the phone, through e-mail, or in person.

Interview

To ensure that the interviews yield comparable results, the CLC group must prepare a list of questions to ask the chosen leaders (interviewees). As a team, choose four questions from the following list:

  1. What are the most important qualities an effective leader should have?
  2. What is the importance of trust in leadership?
  3. What are the qualities you want most in an employee? Why?
  4. Who has had the most influence on how you lead? Why?
  5. In what areas would you like to improve your leadership?
  6. How do your employees react to your leadership?
  7. Have you engaged in 360-degree feedback? If so, what has been the result?
  8. What is the role of effective communication in leadership?
  9. How would you rate yourself at being able to communicate with all your important stakeholders?

In addition to the four interview questions your team will use from the above list, generate, as a group, two more questions, for a total of six interview questions. Please note: All members of the CLC are required to ask their individually chosen leaders the same interview questions, so the CLC must decide as a team which questions will be included in the interview.

Individual Presentation

After conducting the interview, each CLC member will individually create a leadership profile of the chosen leader in a PowerPoint presentation (5-6 slides). Be sure to include the following in your individual leadership profile:

  1. A slide that introduces your chosen leader, including justification for choosing the particular leader.
  2. A summary of the answers to the interview questions.
  3. A description of the leadership model with which the leader seems most closely aligned.

Group Presentation

After all CLC members have created their individual leadership profiles, the group will compile the individual team members’ slide sets into a group PowerPoint presentation (20-24 slides, based on a four-person group). For the combined group presentation, create one or two additional slides (for a total of 22-26 slides, based on a four-person group) to provide the following information:

  1. A summary that describes any characteristics of servant leadership displayed by any of the leaders.
  2. Other commonalities among the leaders, in terms of values, beliefs, and impact on the community.

Peer Evaluation

Complete the “Peer Evaluation Form,” which is an opportunity to conduct performance reviews on your team members. All members of the CLC group must individually complete and submit the evaluation.
