CEO:
Elon Musk, Tesla
 
 
 
CEO brief Biography (150-250 words) with citations:
 
Elon Musk is the world’s richest man. In fact as of June 9th 2022, Elon’s net worth is 214 billion dollars making his net worth 74 billion dollars richer than Amazon’s Jeff Bezos. (Bloomberg, n.d.) He accommodates all of this wealth and status from being a CEO of not one, but two massive companies. Those companies being Tesla, Inc. and SpaceX. He also is an investor and founder of many other smaller companies. Even though he is known as a big tycoon in American business, Elon had very humble beginnings. Growing up, he lived with an abusive dad in South Africa and constantly got bullied in school. (Blystone, 2022) By the time he was 24 years old he had moved to the U.S. and attempted to gain a Ph.D in applied physics at Stanford University. (Blystone, 2022) He would only last 2 days in the program before pursuing entrepreneurship in tech companies that would lead him down a path of where he is at today. (Blystone, 2022) Elon Musk vision centers around providing tech that offers us the chance, as humans, to move towards the path of prosperity while becoming an interplanetary species. (Silicon, 2021)

Team Mission Statement:
We are here on this team in order to not just complete a project, but to learn to work together and put what we have learned into motion. We want to continue to learn more about what it takes to be a well rounded leader and use our skills to our benefit.
 
 
Members’ Commitment:
 
As a team we commit to communication with one another, distribute and complete work fairly, and give our best in order to ensure our grade reflects that.
SECTION 2: DETAILED TEAM NORMS (see course notes)
Team structure/ground rules (member responsibilities): When and where do you plan to meet? What are attendance expectations? What is the general agenda for each meeting? How will you track assignment completion? What communication methods will you rely on to communicate team information?
Team Motivation: How will you encourage participation and create an ideal climate for self-motivation?
Team Process (enforcing responsibilities):  Please consider how you will work together to accomplish your goals and develop good team relationships. Leadership, Roles, Feedback, and How will you hold each member accountable for actions (e.g., missing meetings, showing up late, being prepared etc.)? What are the consequences for failing to meet expectations?
Team Culture (values emphasized): How will you build trust and encourage creativity? How will you address potential barriers to the achievement of team goals? How will team members deal with potential problems that might arise (member and schedule)? How will you manage internal politics?
 
Team Structure:
We plan to meet through zoom calls weekly. Attendance is expected every time since the calls will be based around the availability times listed in our personal information. The general agenda for each meeting will reflect what is coming up on our due dates. We will also discuss the overall project in general  in order to recap and clear up any questions or new ideas. We will track assignment completion through shared google docs/slides. This way work can be viewed at any time by any member. We have a GroupMe chat to communicate at any time and will use zoom as a more in depth conversation.
 
Team Motivation:
We will encourage each other by showing patience around each other’s schedules and learning capabilities. Since we started this team as strangers we have been able to comfortably introduce ourselves and open ourselves to communication. If anyone has an issue it will be talked through and a win-win solution will be the goal.
 
Team Process:
We promised to distribute work fairly and evenly. We have scheduled due dates in order to space out time between work. Any issues should be communicated in a timely manner in case other team members need to step up in order to complete unfinished work by another member. If a member is not pulling enough weight, the team will have a conversation to resolve the issue. Failing to meet expectations will be reflected in our evaluations explaining how working together went over the course of the project. If it happens more than twice, the professor will get involved to help resolve the issue. If it furthers than that it will lead to removal from our group.
 
Team Culture:
We build trust by completing our work as promised on time. We will encourage creativity by listening to each other’s ideas. Any potential barriers will be addressed in a respectful manner and a win-win outcome is our goal. Any problems schedule related need to be communicated as soon as possible in order to stay on top of work. Things happen, however it cannot be a consistent issue and the team member needs to offer to work on something else in order to keep it fair. Respect for one another will keep us successful.
 
SECTION 3: FEEDBACK and PRESENTATION PLANS (with early research)
Feedback to use for individual and team development (assessment, instructor, member, student).
 
We will use the professors feedback measures when we are doing our assessments when we do our meeting to get feedback and reflect on what was communicated to us. When we have our meetings we will use that time to do the ice breaker first. Afterwards we will discuss with one another they’re strengths and weaknesses throughout that time frame. That way it is not just receiving negative feedback, they are also getting what they did well too.
 
 
 
 
 
How You Plan to manage the presentation and lead the discussion (technology usage plan [ppt, videos links etc.]).
 
We will use PowerPoint slides for our presentation so it’ll give a clear understanding of what the topic is. As far as video links , we can record a video, post on YouTube and use that link for our video. We will lead the discussion by communication, asking questions about things we aren’t sure about, and sharing ideas to each other.
 
 
 
 
Provide preliminary research support for 1 key concept for each chapter assigned to your team – with an example. Include citations for this early research and a reference list.
 
Chapter 2:
 
Some of the leadership traits of Ellon Musk include;
Sociability: Everyone, from employees to customers to investors, should feel energized when they are in the presence of an effective leader. Musk is a formidable technological competitor because of his affable personality and upbeat outlook on the world’s technological future (Yauney, 2018). This is encouraging, and there is no doubt that it has played a role in his being able to endure the face of challenges faced in his commercial ventures.
 
Intelligence: Musk motivates people to achieve their goals by guiding them through action using a method of forming teams based on scientific research and understanding each participant’s capabilities.
 
Determination: One of the many reasons we appreciate Elon Musk is his determination. Throughout his career, he has encountered several obstacles, including his Tesla brand’s mechanical breakdowns and rockets’ explosions. There was a close call with SpaceX going out of business. Musk never lets anything stop him from moving ahead, and upward is one of the most amazing things about him (Early, 2017). He moves on to the next one without giving these failures a second thought, explaining them away as the outcome of unsuccessful trials.
 
Chapter 3:
 
Elon musk is an authoritarian leader. His leadership skills are remarkable, but he also has the potential to be quite harmful. Watch out for him. He is known for being difficult to work with, although his intelligence is generally acknowledged and appreciated (Glauser & Holland, 2016). Despite this, he has a reputation for being difficult to deal with due to authoritarian leadership.
 
 
Chapter 4:
 
Elon Musk, CEO of Tesla, is very task-oriented, which serves him well when it comes to achieving his goals. He is known for his strict adherence to timeliness requirements and cost constraints, as well as his refusal to accept failure (Khan, 2021). He has the highest expectations not just for the members of the teams he coaches but also for his sense of worth.
 
Chapter X:
 
Out-groups sap the group’s vitality rather than being replenished by them (White & Dahl, 2007). Also, the people who belong to the out-group do not get the respect that they are due.
