Using your own thoughts and words – choose and discuss three of the five steps of informal coaching (e.g., inspire commitment, promote persistence, etc. as noted in Table 2.1, p. 67) that you think are most important for leaders to use in developing follower behaviors. Explain why you believe that these three ways are the most important.
You should list at least one source (primarily the course textbook) along with your written submissions. When writing in your own words you still need to support the response with appropriate citations for defining, describing, quoting, paraphrasing, etc., from published material related to the concept under discussion. For example, the textbook is a source that is often used in framing a response to the discussion questions. For future reference purposes, please see the APA style citation below for the course textbook as taken from the syllabus. You should use this citation, along with other sources as needed, for your written assignments.Other helpful tips for written submissions include the following:
*Expand discussion responses with content applications, examples, and details.
*Proofread your submissions for spelling, grammar, and word choice.
*Avoid using contractions, bullet points, and excessive direct quotations.
*Use APA style citations when citing sources in the body of the essay.
*Provide an APA Style reference list for all sources used in your written work.
