This assignment will help you to bring theory to life and recognize how a leader navigates and steers a complex organization.
First, read the Harvard Business Review case study “Anne Mulcahy: Leading Xerox Through the Perfect Storm.” Then prepare a PowerPoint presentation that examines the topics listed below. Where necessary, include presentation notes to complement slide content. You will not give the presentation orally, so the PowerPoint text, with notes, has to include sufficient detail to show your response to the questions.
• How did Mulcahy’s life and professional experiences contribute to her personal application of the four dimensions of EQ (emotional intelligence) and AL (authentic leadership)? Provide examples.
• When Mulcahy became COO, in what ways did she use EQ and AL to navigate a challenging organizational landscape? Explain your reasoning.
• Does Mulcahy use power, influence, or both? Provide a specific example to support your perspective.
