Barack Obama: Leadership Analysis

Using your own analysis as well as that of scholars, describe your subject’s leadership style (i.e., transactional, transformational).

Why did the leader seek power? Explain how the leader came to power (election, coup, hereditary, etc.). Are there limits to what the leader can do? Who, if anyone, can check the leader’s power? Is the leader accountable to anyone? Evaluate the overall impact of this leadership style on the leader’s actions and decisions.
