1) Leadership Communication Final Project Presentation
Purpose: The purpose of this assignment is to apply the knowledge you have gained from this course by conducting a holistic analysis of a leader. It will also give you an opportunity to further develop your public speaking skills.
Content: Analyze the leadership communication of a famous leader, Biblical figure, or movie/tv character according to the principles discussed in this course. The analysis should present a holistic analysis of the individual’s communication rather than an analysis of just one particular communication (i.e. one speech, one writing, one conversation, one story, etc.). You may conduct a broad analysis of several aspects of the leader based on the unit material in this course (i.e. nonverbals, presentation skills, emotional intelligence, etc.) or just focus on one or two areas in depth. You must integrate the concepts and material in the unit lectures and text as a basis for your analysis (i.e. If you are analyzing a leader’s persuasive abilities, you need to integrate what you learned about persuasive appeals and Monroe’s motivated sequence).
Research: Your presentation must exemplify graduate level research. A minimum of five sources must be used and noted using APA format in the Works Cited page. Your sources may include journals, books, video/audio footage, internet resources, interviews, etc. A variety of resources is expected. The presentation should move beyond merely discussing other’s research but rather taking that research and using it to formulate your own thoughts, ideas, and discoveries.
Time: 15 minutes (do not go past this if uploading to YouTube, otherwise you will have problems)
Outline: You must prepare an outline that follows the Standard speech outline format as shown in Unit 3. Points for your outline will be included in your overall speech grade. Your presentation must include a proper introduction that begins with an attention getter, clearly identifies the leader that you will be analyzing (thesis statement) as well as identify the 2-3 main points (forecast statement) that you will be discussing. Again, these three areas of analysis/main points MUST stem from three of the areas discussed in this course (i.e presentation skills, persuasive skills, emotional intelligence, etc.). The presentation must also include an appropriate conclusion with a summary of main points and closing statement that refers back to the attention getter.
Grading: Your speech will be graded according to the criteria found on the Final Project Presentation Evaluation Rubric. Standard presentation guidelines must be followed. It is imperative that you tie in concepts from this class as a basis for the presentation.
Format: For your convenience, there are two options available to you to give your presentation.
