Module 3 features a Discussion Question (DQ) which is informed by assigned readings. In this course, the Discussion Boards are an excellent way to share your observations and learn from the history and experience of others. Embed course material concepts, principles and theories (include supporting citations) along with at least one scholarly, peer-reviewed journal article. Keep in mind that these scholarly references can be found in the Saudi Digital Library by conducting an advanced search specific to scholarly references.
You need to reply to at least two peer Discussion Question post answers to this weekly Discussion Question. These post replies need to be substantial and constructive in nature. They should add to the content of the post and evaluate/analyze that post answer. Normal course dialogue doesn’t fulfill these two peer replies, but rather is expected throughout the course. Answering all course questions is also required.

- Analyze current trends in leadership and the leadership process.
