Perspectives in Leadership : Northouse, P.G. 8th edition (2018). :

Assignment 3 (10%) 500 word maximum.

James Comeys op-ed in the New York Times (Topic 4) offers a blunt assessment of the role of followership, character, and morality in leadership. Comey writes: Accomplished people lacking inner strength can’t resist the compromises necessary to survive Mr. Trump and that adds up to something they will never recover from. It takes character like Mr. Mattis’s to avoid the damage, because Mr. Trump eats your soul in small bites.
How would Comey respond to Northouses discussion of followership (Topic 7)? Does Northouse provide sufficient guidance to followers of leaders like President Donald Trump? What additional advice would you give to followers? 

Topic 4 :
. Charismatic, Laissez-Faire, Transactional, and Transformational Leadership
