Leadership Interview Project

You will need for the interviewee to provide you with a letter of proof showing the date that the interview was conducted, on the organization’s letterhead. An email from the interviewee will also suffice, as long as it shows the date of the interview, the person’s name, title, the organization, their email address and telephone number. You are required to include this information when submitting your project.
Community Leadership Interview Project
Your assignment is to conduct a face to face interview with someone in a leadership position from your community (minimum of 2 years of experience) working for an Organization that you find interesting. The organization can be from government, business, public service, not-for-profit organization, religious, volunteer position, etc. Please do not interview someone from your own family. You should contact the individual to set up a time and date for your interview. It is recommended that you dress appropriately for this interview as you should make a positive impression on the leader. Remember to be respectful of their time and to bring your questions, along with a pen and paper, to your interview session for taking notes.
