The purpose of this analysis is to give you practical experience in understanding the leadership qualities of someone you admire. Select someone you consider to be a leader, prepare interview questions, perform the interview, and evaluate. The Holt Types Test should be used in your interview and discussedin the paper.

Paper will be 10 pages minimum, double-spaced; please include Holt Excel Spreadsheet and interview questions.
