Presenting Yourself as a Global Leader

This assessment enables you to demonstrate your mastery of the following course competencies:
•Analyze relevant global leadership concerns for the future.
•Analyze emerging leadership theories that are appropriate for a global agenda.
•Evaluate the leader’s responsibility to prepare the self for work in a competitive, complex, and diverse workplace.
•Define a personal plan for evolving the present, reflective self.
•Communicate in a manner that is professional and consistent with expectations for members of the business professions.

Activity Instructions

Draw upon your Leadership Development Plan from Unit 5 to prepare a PowerPoint presentation in which you present your global leadership credentials to a corporate leadership team.

Imagine that you are interviewing for a dream leadership position in a global firm. (It may help you to identify a specific organization, industry, and leadership position. It can be fictitious, if you would prefer, but will have more meaning if it is something you actually hope for in your future.) Before flying to corporate headquarters, you receive a request from the top leadership team. The team members ask to see a 10-minute presentation in which you give your:
•Global leadership strengths and fit with the leadership position.
•Evolving global leadership development plan.
•Analysis of global leadership concerns for the future in the context of the organization.
•Evaluation of an emerging leadership theory and its appropriateness for the organization.

Remember that you will want to tailor your presentation to reflect the particular firm, industry, and leadership position for which you are being considered. This is where you are “boasting” your strengths to be the global leader of choice.

Your presentation must include speaker notes at the bottom of the slides. To learn how to use speaker notes in PowerPoint, visit the help area in PowerPoint and search for “speaker note function.”

Also, note that your first slide must be a title page and the last slide must have your references.

Refer to the scoring guide prior to submission to ensure you meet all evaluation criteria.
