The analysis and evaluation of these leadership examples must be based on the concepts of business leadership management. Can you help me with the following task? You can select two leaders and go from there.

The format of the task is to be as follows:

1. Analysis and evaluation of Leader #1
2. Analysis and evaluation of Leader #2
3. Comparison of the leaders
4. Summary of significant findings and perspectives from journal entries
5. Analysis and evaluation of journal entries to chosen leaders
6. Conclusion

Here are some references you may use.

Dear OTA, I would like to ask for assistance with the following problem. The leaders are Abraham Lincoln and Barack Obama.

1. I am researching two leaders and want to describe the factors that make these leaders strategic.
2. Analyze and identify the commonalities in terms of these leaders’ personalities, communication styles, ego, personal will, and other leadership qualities.
3. Analyze and justify whether these leaders are committed to greatness.

Please use intext citations along with references so I can follow your lead. Thank you so much.


Successful public policies often hinge upon the ability of talented leaders to develop, promote, and execute those public policies. In a two-page paper, discuss which leadership traits you feel are the most important in the creation of sound public policies. Some questions to consider are: does a leader’s educational background matter significantly in providing leadership in the policy making process? Do leaders need to have a military background in order to execute successful policies involving the armed forces? Is it necessary for strong leaders in the policymaking arena to have traveled widely and to have had significant foreign policy experience? In addition, you may wish to illustrate your points by identifying specific past or current leaders (e.g., Franklin Delano Roosevelt, Winston Churchill, Theodore Roosevelt, Ronald Reagan) in public policy who exemplify the traits you feel are the most important in public policy leadership.

Begin with an introduction that defines the subject of the critique and a point of view. Defend the point of view by raising specific issues or aspects of an argument. Conclude the critique by summarizing the argument and re-emphasizing an opinion.

1. Identify and explain the author’s ideas. Include specific passages that support the description of the author’s point of view.

2. Offer you own opinion. Explain what you think about the argument. Describe several points which are agreeable or disagreeable.

Provide references.

I am writing out a 500 word (references not included) response in relation to the article – “Leadership and culture in Mexico”(Jon P Howell et al, 2007 Journal of World Business)

I am attempting to identify and describe some of the general elements that were measured by the GLOBE study related to the article. I need assistence and different view point about these elements.
I also require assistance with how these elements would compare within EU countries?

Finally, I am expected to provide specific examples of how leadership practices in EU countries differ from that of Mexico.

The student question submitted was:

What are the implications of emotional intelligence for leaders? Explain your answer using personal examples.

In about 300 words, this solution discusses how leaders lead by example – whether they want to or not, and regardless if they are aware of this dynamic or not. Understanding emotional intelligence is a “must have” for any leader to be successful. The solution provides examples of poor “EI” and how employees perceive that in a leader.
