Discuss the strength and weakness of each theory.
Explain how organizations can create effective leaders.
Explain options and strategies that an organization can utilize to apply this theory to leadership.
Select 1 theory to implement.
Develop a specific method for implementation explaining your rationale for the selection of this theory and your proposed implementation design.
