With Saudi Vision 2030, “Saudi Arabia is moving aggressively to diversify its economy and implement important reforms,” according to Stephen A. Schwarzman, co-founder of the private equity company Blackstone Group (Sorkin, 2017, para. 6).
Identify a business leader in Saudi Arabia and explain which characteristics of leadership that person espouses. Find research that speaks to leadership characteristics and their importance. In what ways will the leadership of your chosen person allow for a more diverse economy in the Kingdom? You should justify your position with the research you found regarding leadership characteristics and how they apply to your subject.
Embed course material concepts, principles, and theories (including supporting citations) along with at least one current, scholarly, peer-reviewed journal article. You may find that your discussion of leadership characteristics is easily supported with such current scholarly research, while the information about how your chosen leader exhibits those leadership characteristics is supported by popular research.
Keep in mind that current scholarly references can be found in the Saudi Digital Library by conducting an advanced search. Current research means published in the last five years.
