You will select a recent article from a reputable newspaper or magazine (e.g., Wall Street Journal, Forbes, Harvard Business Review, Economist, Time, Financial Times) or an academic journal (e.g., The Leadership Quarterly, Academy of Management Journal, Journal of Applied Psychology, Journal of Leadership and Organizational Studies). Your review should correspond with any of the Leadership topic areas covered in class (listed in the course schedule) and mostly related to demonstrating effective leadership in a crisis. The objective is to present you with the opportunity to read about a leadership issue that is of interest to you.
