These missions needed to be planned out through vision before being exercised and then carried out. This overall focal view provided clarity for success. It was an image of an attractive, realistic and believable future (Bennis & Nanus, 1995, p. 89). All of these missions start with a vision. It gives the leader and the organization a conceptual map for where the organization is headed; it give meaning and clarifies the organization’s identity (Northouse, 2013, pg. 200). Although leaders play a large role in articulating the vision, the emergence of the vision originates from both the leaders and the following (Northouse, 2013, pg. 197). With a clear vision Bennis and Nanus also found that positive self-regard in leaders had a reciprocal impact on followers, creating in them feelings of confidence and high expectations (Northouse, 2013, pg. 198). Kouzes and Posner states, enable others to act. Outstanding leaders are effective at working with people. They build trust with others and promote collaboration. Teamwork and cooperation are highly valued by these leaders (Northouse, 2013, pg. 197). Furthermore, the vision gives followers a sense of identity with within the organization and also a sense of self-efficacy (Shamir et al., 1993). When an organization has a clear vision, it is easier for people within the organization to learn how they fit in with the overall direction of the organization and even the society in general (Northouse 2013, pg. 197). By learning what constitutes excellent teams and applying these criteria to team performance, leaders can learn how to better lead team to the highest levels of excellence (Northouse, 2013, pg. 305). By learning what constitutes excellent teams and applying these criteria to team performance, leaders can learn how to better lead team to the highest levels of excellence (Northouse, 2013, pg. 305). Finally, there is substantial evidence that transformational leadership is an effective form of leadership (Yukl, 1999).

YOU MUST USE —How To Analyze a Film As you might guess, conducting a semiotic (symbolic) analysis of a film is a somewhat more complicated venture than conducting a semiotic analysis of a print advertisement. This is not to say, of course, that movies and advertisements do not share similarities. Both, for example, are “texts” that rely on visual imagery to tell specific stories, and both are in the business of promoting specific ideologies. At the same time, print advertisements are limited by the static nature of their medium. Film, on the other hand, is not a static medium, and thus its stories are much more complex. Analyzing a film, then, as our text relates, is much more like “reading a novel. In short, analyzing a film requires you to take a careful look at the setting, plot, characters, dialogue, symbols, metaphors, archetypes, etc., as well as those factors that have an influence on the film, such as the social, historical, and political context in which the film was created. STEPS FOR CONDUCTING AN ANALYSIS OF A FILM Despite the differences between movies and advertisements, the goal of a semiotic analysis of a film is nonetheless the same as a semiotic analysis of an advertisement, namely to determine its current social significance. With than in mind, here is an expanded and modified version of the steps for conducting an analysis, tailored specifically to film: 1.) Establish the film to be analyzed 2.) Set aside your opinion; your task is to analyze the current social significance (This assignment is NOT a review of the film!!) 3.) Analysis of setting, plot, characters, symbols, etc. 4.) How does the film represents its topic 5.) Sketch the overall context (historical, cultural, and political) in which the film appears 6.) Develop a list of questions, concerns, and/or issues that will guide your analysis 7.) Develop a thesis statement Again, this is NOT the order in which everything should appear in your paper. This is merely a step by step of how to PREPARE to write a film analysis. It would also be helpful to find other important films in same genre of your chosen film and see HOW your film is different, and WHY that difference is important. ASSIGNMENT Using the steps for conducting an analysis of a film outlined above as the foundation for your argument, write a three to four page analysis of your chosen film. Preparation for this assignment requires the following: 1. Locating, renting, and watching the film 2. Going through the steps for conducting an analysis of a film as outlined above 3. Choosing a film study question to answer. After completing the steps, your paper should include the following: 1.) Your film study question 2.) A thesis statement 3.) A short but detailed description of the film 4.) An analysis of the film related to your chosen question that includes some of the details/discoveries that you made while completing the steps Modified from: B Hughes , CA State University Bakersfieldless Reference for Teamwork Rowe, W.
