2 pages paper
You will write about 1 articles from the business press (e.g., Wall Street Journal, Economist, BusinessWeek, Forbes, New York Times) and describe in 2 pages (for each article) how the article illustrates certain OB concepts. Focus on the application/illustration and do not regurgitate definitions and material from the book. Do not use “how to articles” (e.g., from consultants, professors, university websites) as you will only restate what is already written and thus fail to demonstrate your proficiency with OB models. Find articles that are journalistic accounts about particular firms or people who can be analyzed according to OB models. Locate articles from the business press (Wall Street Journal, BusinessWeek, Fortune, Fast Company, etc.).
The Given OB theory is Empowering leadership!
Empowering leadership represents the leader’s ability to create perceptions of psychological empowerment in others. Psychological em-powerment, employees’ belief that they have control over their work, is believed to drive intrinsic motivation.
