Discussion 2: How Can Leadership Be Taught? Implications for Leadership Educators

(In addition, you will need to find one extra scholarly article for this discussion to support your thoughts. No books and no trade journals can be used, only current scholarly journals (past 5 to 7 years) that are labelled academic, peer-reviewed, or refereed journals.)

For this week's discussion, I would like you to read the attached scholarly article on leadership. Please discuss the following, as you should have at least one paragraph per question/statement, as every paragraph must have at least 5 to 6 academic level sentences:

Channing, J. (2020). How Can Leadership Be Taught? Implications for Leadership Educators. International Journal of Educational Leadership Preparation, 15(1), 134-148.

  1. The purpose of Channing's (2020) research study was to better understand how leadership is taught and learned. Channing presented six research questions; you will select two of the six research questions and explain why they are relevant to you as a leader. Please review the discussion section of the article to align your response.
  2. Whether you choose the dissertation or strategic research project pathway, you will need to learn about theoretical frameworks. As a result, what did you learn about the leadership development theoretical framework presented by Channing? You will notice on page 137 of the article, Channing mentioned many theorists: (a) Kolb, (b) Lewin, (c) Dewey, (d) Vygotsky, (e) Guthrie and Jones, and (f) Bandura, which would be theories to research. When researching theorists and theoretical frameworks, it will be acceptable to use sources from any published year.

  1. Although the target population for this research study were undergraduate students, discuss two things you learned about how to be motivated as a doctoral student.
  2. The study results showed that the relationship between motivation, respect, and the ability of expression were at medium level. Why do you believe effective communication skills are vital and relevant to you as a doctoral student and in society?
  3. After reading the research results, share your thoughts regarding goal setting and time management.

Discussion 5: Communication Models

For this discussion, you will research one of the following three chosen Models of Communication: 
(a) linear/transmission, 
(b) interactive, and 
(c) transactional.

Please review the following examples of each communication model:

Faculty use the linear (i.e., transmission) model to send information to students via announcements, pre-recorded ZOOM lectures, and other pertinent information within Canvas platform, which is designed to send information that could be important to ones success in a doctoral-level program. 

The interactive model of communication is based on how two consumers of information interact to develop relationships or engage their customers or in our situation, for faculty to engage students by utilizing interactive features of technology such as ZOOM. Although communication is important, this model is more about the interaction between individuals than the message. 

The transaction model builds dialogue between two or more individuals with the important process of feedback. An example of this model is when a faculty member reviews a student’s submission and immediately returns it with feedback. This immediate feedback is designed to help the student readily improve in future submissions and research. Please note that this type of communication is two-way as stated in the interactive model, but more direct and rapid. Faculty use this feedback process in the strategic research project.

Directions for this discussion:

Now that you have a background regarding these three models of communication, explain how you would professionally use one of these models (a) linear/transmission, (b) interactive, or (c) transactional in 3 separate settings:

(a) work,

(b) college courses, and

(c) personal.

All paragraphs must have at least 5 to 6 academic sentences. No generative artificial intelligence is allowed.

Discussion 6: Professional Communications and Negotiations

In this discussion, you will be provided with the knowledge and understanding in order to apply negotiation tactics to reach a mutually favorable agreement for all individuals and/or groups, not artificial intelligence. You should research many models regarding negotiating such as

(a) Best Alternative To a Negotiated Agreement (BATNA), 
(b) Worst Alternative To a Negotiated Agreement (WATNA), 
(c) Zone of Possible Agreement (ZOPA), 
(d) Verbal Judo (persuasion), 
(e) Negotiating Jiu Jitsu (win win), and 
(f) Getting to Yes.

After gaining knowledge of these models, you will have the ability to give detailed explanations how these models will be utilized to lead, negotiate, and influence with confidence in your everyday functions.

Directions for this discussion:

You will select one of these above mentioned models of negotiation tactics (i.e., a to f) and write what you have learned from the one selected model of your choice and how would you use them in the real world of work, college, and personal interactions, not via artificial intelligence. All paragraphs must contain at least 5 to 6 "academic level" sentences.

Discussion 7: Goals, Motivations, Vision, and Values

Leadership, communication, and technology will be continually infused in aspects of your academic and professional life. As you progress along your chosen career path, it is likely that you will increase your skills in these areas; however, the development will also require thoughtfulness so that you can remain current and achieve continuous improvement. Concrete planning, being proactive, and reviewing all details will allow you to achieve the greatest benefits as a direct result of your focus, attention, and efforts.

Directions for this discussion:

In this discussion, which has 2 sections, you will have a paragraph for each area as all paragraphs must have at least 5 to 6 academic sentences. In the first paragraph, you will begin with sharing any information about your goals, motivations, and more to include your vision in life. In a second paragraph, you will explain about your values and how important these can be to improve your skills in leadership, communication, and technology. Keep in mind that this document will continuously transform as you further your degree and career.
