Some of the leading news magazines (such as Time, Newsweek, Forbes) have an annual edition or article that reviews the worst tyrants or dictators in the world. Your task is to research one of these leaders online and report back to the course participants in a short post on the OnQ Discussions Learning Activity: Pseudotransformational Leaders. Some guiding questions are:
What was this person like in childhood and adolescence?
What were the formative experiences of this person’s life?
When did this leader become self-consumed, power-oriented, exploitative, or amoral?
Why does this person have followers?
What do followers hope to gain from this leader?
How can a person tell if he or she is psychologically susceptible to following a toxic leader?
Can the world ever rid itself of pseudotransformational leaders?
