Part II: Create an historical overview of selected leadership definitions by constructing a time-line figure illustrating how leadership definitions varied over time. The time-line will span three decades and include a minimum of three (3) definitions from different sources that are then positioned across the time-line. Place the time-line and definition overview in Appendix B of the paper.

Part III: Develop an analytic essay* exploring how your leadership explanation was informed by time and by different leadership definitions. That is, decompose and extract elements from your biographical explanation and determine if and where the elements might be related to the time-line and definitions. Within the analytic paper, reference Appendices A and B. Include a conclusion based on findings and insights related to what influenced your personal leadership assumptions and experiences.
