Assignment 4 "Leadership Film Project" is due no later than noon, Monday, May 17th..
Select one of the films listed below. In it, identify evidence of leadership traits, behaviors, styles, and others of the theories covered in the textbook. Use examples to illustrate your points. I look for a comprehensive study of leadership from the theories listed in the book.

(1) Traits/Characteristics: As many as you can identify in the two leader characters (2) Behaviors: As many as you can identify in the two leader characters (3) Styles: Identify all applicable. Some will use several, others will use only one. (4) Context: In this section you will identify situational factors that played a role in the leader's behaviors and styles. here the context is not the historical or geographic setting, but the context as described in situational leadership.
---Ethics. In this section you will...
