Select someone in a leadership position at your organization or at a local company where you might seek employment. This individual could be a director, manager, supervisor, or CEO of the organization.
Write a 1,050- to 1,400-word profile of the individual that you interviewed for your company’s newsletter, and include the following:
- Identify the individual and their position within the company, and briefly describe the organization.
- Interpret the individual’s leadership style based on the Five-Factor personality model, and offer one or more examples of the management and leadership roles of this individual. Be sure to cover each of the five aspects of the model with regard to this individual.
- Explain one incident where this individual had to solve a difficult problem or situation because things did not go as planned.
- Describe the lessons that she/he learned from being able to problem solve, even when what she/he had been taught did not work.
Format your profile in the form of a newsletter (the final format may vary depending upon the company’s style; please feel free to use the provided template as a starting point and check the Internet or Microsoft® Word for additional newsletter templates). But, the final product should be in the form of a newsletter that embodies the items mentioned above and includes appropriate citations and references. The grading guide for this assignment should also be consulted to see exactly what will be used as the basis for grading in addition to the assignment itself.
I would like for the company Tyson Foods to be used for the assignment. I wasn’t able to do the actual interview, however the selected individual is Victor Martinez, who holds a supervisor position within the company. In regards to the Big Five Personality Traits, he exhibits openness, conscientiousness, and extraversion. He is a very hands on leader, and is available for questions and feedback when necessary.
Please feel free to reach out if there are additional questions and I’ll try to assist as much as possible.
