Research Three IT Leaders 

In this competency, you have studied traits, behaviors, actions, interpersonal skills, communication tactics, relationships, and values of leaders. As you become a leader in the IT world, it is important to recognize those leadership qualities that you want to emulate in your career. Vision boards are often used to assist in focusing on career and life goals. In this assignment, you will create a leadership vision board in which you summarize three leaders who serve as examples of the leader you want to be. 

  • Select 3 leaders in the IT world who have had a positive      effect on their company. These leaders do not need to be from big      companies, but they should be attached to IT projects. 

Vision Board Creation 

Develop a leadership vision board using any program or website that allows you to design posters or a hard copy vision board and take pictures of it, including close-up photos to show details. Address the following for each leader in your vision board: 

  • List their name, company, and      role at the company. 
  • Define their top three      leadership traits or behaviors. 
  • How have these traits or      behaviors affected the company or project?

  • What is one piece of advice you      would like to remember from this person’s experience? 
  • Include images, as      appropriate. 

Format your citations per APA guidelines. 

Note: You will be graded on the content and not the design aspect of this assignment. However, a clear design will assist in conveying the information, as well as provide a good resource for future assignments.
