Interview Preliminaries:

  1. Using methodology described in the readings, prepare a list of questions regarding an individual’s direct personal experience with leaders. A minimum of 15 questions is required.

  3. Identify a subgroup of people in your immediate circle of contact with whom you have the ability to conduct a critical incident technique (CIT) interview regarding their experience with leaders in their own lives.
  4. Conduct a minimum of three interviews.

Prepare this assignment as a Word document according to the guidelines found in the APA Style Guide, located in the Student Success Center. An abstract is not required.
