For this assignment you should watch a movie, or re-watch a movie you remember seeing in the past. In any number of movies I can think of there is a leader who, by articulating a vision and a challenge to others to see it happen, convinces followers to join them in trying to achieve something. The leader then organizes the activities and motivates followers to help the entire organization achieve the vision. There are plenty of sports movies (e.g., Coach Carter, Remember the Titans), action movies (Oceans 11, The Italian Job), and animated movies (e.g., Toy Story, A Bugs Life), where some leader(s) create a compelling vision for others to follow and lead others to success. In the paper, take 500=750 words to describe the basic plot of the movie (in your own words!). Then, for the rest of the paper, using some of the terms and ideas described in the chapters, explain how the leader(s) contributed to success. Be sure to reference both the movie, and sections of the textbook chapters you refer to. Feel free to use other sources of information to further understand and describe theories. For example, the Path-Goal Theory may be a very powerful concept for understanding a particular leader’s success, but since this is covered in less than one page in the text book, it may be necessary to access a few more sources to fully apply this theory.
This paper should be around 1800-2500 words, with proper referencing of all sources used. I recommend using the APA format for the paper and references, although I am not a stickler for following every detail of the official formating guidelines. The library or the writing center can provide assistance if you have any questions. There are also a number of sources of information regarding this standard, including http://www.apastyle.
Answer previewThe decision to lock down the gym and suspend the entire team was not received well by the parents, teaming staff, and school management. After being confronted by the school board about his actions, Carter explained that his main aim was to allow his team to learn good values, which are far more valuable for the student’s future than winning or basketball games, an idea that is the idea that the media highly praises. The school principal, the chairperson, and the board tried to thwart Carter’s decisions and have the gym functional, making him disgusted and opting to quit. Just when he is about to quit, Carter is surprised when he finds students and teachers studying in the gym working on backing up his vision (Coach Carter. n.d.). The athletes subscribe to Carter’s initial intention of pursuing academic performance before playing[2053 Words]
