Decisiveness amid Uncertainty

Instructions: You are required to answer the following questions. You should save your answers in a Word document for submission. Please do not repeat the questions on your answer sheet. Instead, please list the answers numerically/sequentially by simply utilizing 1, 2, 3, and 4. Each assignment must have a cover page listing your name, the name of the assignment, and the date. The cover page does not count towards the word count. For each assignment, you are expected to answer the assigned questions in your own words. Each assignment paper should be at least 1,000-1,500 words. Papers less than the required 1,000-1,500 words will get zero. This does not mean each question requires a 1,000-1,500-word response; rather, the total number of words for answering the questions must total more than 1,000-1,500 words. See grading rubric below. An exemplary answer demonstrates comprehension through a complete understanding by translating, interpreting and extrapolation as well as full analysis of the basic information into elements by identifying causes and relationships.

Purpose: The purpose of this assignment is to expose students to the issues and complexities of applied leadership within the hospitality and tourism industry. Students will be asked to immerse themselves in applied leadership material, reaching out to an industry leader (mentor) to discuss prescribed issues/topics, and reflect on applied leadership topics and discussion.
