Strategic leadership is not a term that everyone understands. In this exercise, you are required to discover, document, and compare and contrast three (3) definitions of strategic leadership from three (3) unique scholarly sources. Using the online Jerry Falwell Library (JFL), draw one definition each from a source found in the following databases: Business Source Complete, ERIC, and a database of your choosing (not connected to the other two). Limit your search to the last five (5) years and select only from sources that are full-text PDF.
Write a 900 word double-spaced paper in APA format that evaluates the definitions found in these articles. Where are they similar? Where do they differ? Would you select one as more correct than the others or would you draw pieces from two or more of them to write your own definition? How would you explain your chosen definition to others? How would you apply this definition in a work setting?
As part of this project, prepare an annotated bibliography. The bibliography will be structured as follows: APA formatted reference (minimum 250 words per reference) followed by summary of key points, evaluation of the quality of the publication, evaluation of the quality of the author(s), where this fits into the assignment, and the library database in which you found the article. A traditional APA reference page and the annotated bibliography will be turned in with the associated paper.
