The leadership Project should be no longer than 7 pages, double-spaced, APA 7th edition format. The project is based on the following:
You are to select and view ONE of the below movies:
2. MacDonald, L. (Producer), Scott, R. (Director). (2000). Gladiator [Motion Picture]. United States: Dreamworks & Universal Pictures.
The movie that I chose use for this assignment is Gladiator. I have watched this movie multiple times and think that the main character of the movie, Maximus, was portrayed as a true leader. I will discuss the techniques that he used to not only command the other gladiators but to share the same passion and vision making his leadership that much more effective. I will touch on many different climates that effective his leadership tactics and how he was able to adapt and change his strategies. Not all of his methods were effective. When he initially became a gladiator, he had his own mission and motives. Until he approached the situation as he had with the military he had previously commanded, he was not able to lead effectively.
A. After viewing the movie or TV show, select one of the supervisors (leaders).
B. Discuss THREE supervisory techniques that they used, using specific examples from the movie or TV episode. Do not spend too much effort explaining the background or details of the scenario, just get to the point.
C. Make sure to discuss the following topics:
i. Which of the supervisory techniques were effective? Why?
ii. Which supervisory techniques were not effective? Why?
iii. Pick one scene and discuss what you would have done differently as a supervisor and why.
iv. How does a high-stress environment like war or the emergency room affect supervisory techniques, as compared to peacetime (or a less stressful environment)?
v. What supervisory trait do you most relate to and why? You should include a personal account from your life.
vi. Why do supervisors fail if they are using a “textbook” technique? Explain using the scenes from the movie/show or your own personal life to enhance your explanation.
If you have already seen the movie or TV show episode, you may “skim” it to refresh yourself.
You should have a title page, body content, and references page. If you have a title page and reference page that leaves you with 5 pages for body.
Use at least 3 references for your project. They should be articles that support your project.
Your paper should contain no more than 20% direct citations or quotations. That means 80% should be your own analysis, thoughts, and ideas.
Please do not wait until week seven to ask if you have questions about the assignment!
