Select someone in a  leadership position at your organization or at a local company where you  might seek employment. This individual could be a director, manager,  supervisor, or CEO of the organization.

Write a 1,050- to 1,400-word profile of the individual that you interviewed for your company’s newsletter, and include the following:

  • Identify the individual and their position within the company, and briefly describe the organization.
  • Interpret the individual’s leadership style based on the Five-Factor  personality model, and offer one or more examples of the management and  leadership roles of this individual.
  • Explain one incident where this individual had to solve a difficult problem or situation because things did not go as planned.
  • Describe the lessons that she/he learned from being able to problem solve, even when what she/he had been taught did not work.

Format your profile in the form of a newsletter (the  final format may vary depending upon the company’s style; please feel  free to use either the provided template or to check the Internet or  Microsoft® Word for additional newsletter templates).​
