For this assignment, select a person

For this assignment, select a person who is a leader at an institution of higher education. Collect information from an interview (over the phone, in person, or via e-mail) with that person. The purpose of this assignment and the subsequent paper is to determine how others in higher education make sense of leadership within their own contexts. To ground the interview, suggest to your interviewee that he/she think of a specific (although they need not share the name of the person with you) person that he/she views as a leader. Note: Do not identify the person, title, or institution pertaining to the interview by name in your paper.

Some of the questions you may wish to ask the person you interview include (please feel at liberty to create your own questions. These are simply as incentives to your own questions):

Why did you identify that person as a leader?

What do you most admire about this leader?

What are the characteristics, behaviors, and accomplishments that make this person a leader?

What are your expectations from this leader?

Summarize your findings after conducting your interview. Compare your summary to theoretical and conceptual models of leadership. Remember to cite your sources for theories and conceptual models.
