Your actual comparative analysis will identify the author’s purpose for the book, its major themes, principles and concepts, and description of how those themes, principles, and concepts relate to the themes, principles and concepts presented by DuBrin.
For this analysis paper, you are to read one of the books listed below (or an approved book). You are to identify the author’s purpose for the book, its major themes, principles and concepts, and describe how those themes, principles, and concepts relate to the themes, principles and concepts presented by DuBrin. In other words, I want to see at minimum four (4) concepts from your “chosen author” and how they to compare/align to DuBrin: where they agree and where they don’t or if they don’t. This is not a book review but rather it is an analysis of an outside reading and the documentation of that reading’s relatedness to the material you have been studying throughout this class.
The content of the analysis is to be completed in APA; the body of the analysis is to be between 7-8 pages. This page count does not include the title, abstract and reference pages. Therefore, the total page count will be 10-11 pages. Please follow ALL APA, such as double-spaced pages, 12 point font, etc. The analysis must include the following:
· an APA title page with running header;
· an Abstract Heading and Section;
· an Introduction Heading and Section;
· a Discussion Heading and Section;
· a Conclusion Heading and Section; and
· the Reference page
· All parts in alignment with APA 6th edition
Please use an APA properly formatted header on each page.
The Book I selected to compare to Andrew J. DuBrin’s Leadership, Research Findings, Practice, and Skills (2019) was “Just Ask Leadership: Why Great Managers Always Ask the Right Questions, by Gary B. Cohen.”
