Leadership and Team Building
Leadership and team building has been viewed as two entirely different concepts. However, they share one common element – vision. Kouzes and Posner (2003) wrote that:
“Visions are about hopes, dreams, and aspirations. They’re about our strong desire to achieve something great. . . . . Visions necessarily stretch us to imagine exciting possibilities, breakthrough technologies, or revolutionary social change” (p. 125).
During this juncture in your graduate coursework, you should be able to write a vision statement to serve as a forward-thinking and planning tool for you. Also, this vision statement should serve as a foundation or framework for you in answering this examination question. Compare and contrast the visionary leadership of leaders, academicians, writers, thinkers, and/or contributors in your field of study in terms of their viewpoints on vision and its application to the real world. Specifically, you are to conduct a mini-review of literature that will support your point of view on the following question:
Does vision play a role in the leadership of your discipline? Specifically, how has the topic of vision been addressed, discussed, implemented, and evaluated in your particular discipline in terms of its application to the workplace and/or marketplace?
Write a well researched, thorough response to one of the questions posed above in an APA formatted paper to be reviewed by your faculty member in practice for your final comprehensive exam. Include 7 scholarly references in your paper.
Respond in 4-5 content pages, not including title page, abstract, or references, to each question.
