o Great Man Theory

o Trait Theory

o Behavioral Theory

o Skills Approach

o Your Own Selection

Compare each approach for the following domains using the Historical Leadership Matrix:

o Description

o Primary characteristics

o Strengths

o Criticisms

o Discipline-specific applications

******The matrix is a pre-writing ‘tool’ to use as you analyze literature on a specific topic. Once you have completed the readings, the matrix provides a ‘visual’ of the information to use for evaluation: similarities/differences, pros/cons, etc.

Complete the Historical Approaches matrix located in Appendix A of the Example Paper and list the references in the references section of the Example Paper.

Submit the Example Paper with a properly formatted title page, properly formatted references, and the completed matrix in Appendix A.
