Using two (2) additional sources from the list that follows as research materials analyze and evaluate:
1. How each of the sources treats those five elements;
2. How each of the sources treats any connection or interaction between, or distinctions between, those five elements;
3. How your personal leadership experience or experience in working with leaders confirms or disconfirms the broad perspectives offered by the sources.
