CJ430-44 Paper#2

Choose a prominent figure (former or current) of a criminal justice organization/agency and research a minimum of 3 articles that discuss decisions they made or that profile their leadership role.

Your job in reviewing these articles is to describe the thesis and evaluate its persuasiveness.

The review should do two things:

Summarize each article in a fair, complete, and balanced manner. To do that describe: 

  • What the article tries to argue or what the author is trying to convince you of.
  • Describe how the author defended or justified their argument (what data, information, ideas, theories, etc. did he/she use)
  • Describe the conclusions or findings of the article.

You will then use the information from your summary to develop a “Leadership Profile” of the figure, describing their:    

  • Path to Leadership
  • Leadership Style
  • Strengths & Weaknesses as a Leader
  • Most impactful decisions
  • Power & Political Influence

NOTE: The description in the Leadership Profile should describe the leader in the context of the leadership concepts learned in the class.
