This assignment requires selecting two leaders from any time period and writing a paper on each leader. One leader is from the nursing field and the other is not. You have to research both nursing and non-nursing leadership/management theories. You will need to obtain evidence that proves your leader is the type of leader you claim them to be.
For sources, you may want to focus primarily on books. Scholarly journal and popular magazine/newspaper articles about/by your leader may also be useful, but may not provide much biographical information; although they will illuminate facets of their theories and potentially their leadership styles. Books will have better information about the leaders and their leadership styles. For more information on how to distinguish between scholarly and non-scholarly sources, click here.
For the body of your papers, you will need to reference and critique published definitions of leadership, justify your proposed definition of leadership and supply evidence to support your conclusion.
