Identify at least four (4) minority leaders (in any industry) that exhibit traits from each modern leadership style. First, construct a matrix (chart) that lists each of the leaders on the y-axis and the four (4) modern leadership styles across the x-axis. Provide concrete, evidence-based examples (found in press releases, news articles, websites, etc.) of traits from these leadership styles for each leader and add them to the matrix. Add this matrix to your paper following the introduction section.
From there, elaborate on the findings of this discovery exercise in the context of defending the need for diversity in organizational leadership, factoring in organizational culture, ethics, and leading diverse workforces. Be sure to touch on the struggles minorities have faced in securing leadership roles in organizations despite the modern leadership styles evidenced in current minority leaders.
