Your paper is missing distinct connection to the reading. Where is your reference page? Where are your citations? You seemed to have a good understanding of followership styles, and were able to tell us lots about Nicholson’s leadership abilities, but you did not reference the readings at all. I need to be able to see the connection. You must demonstrate an understanding of those concepts from the reading by using them in your essay – defining and explaining them. You failed to do that. That cost you a bit of points.
I WOULD LIKE FOR YOU TO EDIT THIS PAPER. ADD A FEW THINGS TO MAKE IT PERFECT! I WILL ATTACH MY ORIGINAL PAPER.
HERE ARE THE INSTRUCTIONS.
Renowned film critic Roger Ebert masterfully explained the central obsession in The Bridge on the River Kwai, suggesting:
“The story’s great irony is that once Nicholson successfully stands up to Saito, he immediately devotes himself to Saito’s project as if it is his own. He suggests a better site for the bridge, he offers blueprints and timetables, and he even enters Clipton’s hospital hut in search of more workers, and marches out at the head of a column of the sick and the lame. On the night before the first train crossing, he hammers into place a plaque boasting that the bridge was ‘designed and built by soldiers of the British army.’
It is Clipton who asks him, diffidently, if they might not be accused of aiding the enemy. Not at all, Guinness replies: War prisoners must work when ordered, and besides, they are setting an example of British efficiency. ’One day the war will be over, and I hope the people who use this bridge in years to come will remember how it was built, and who built it.’ A pleasant sentiment, but in the meantime the bridge will be used to advance the war against the Allies. Nicholson is so proud of the bridge that he essentially forgets about the war.”

Some viewers of the film will look at Nicholson as a hero; others see him as a villain. He is wildly successful in some aspects of his leadership and spectacularly unsuccessful in others.
Compose a well-written essay of 1000-1250 words in APA format in which you:
- Apply an understanding of leadership skills and styles we have examined in Modules 1-4 and evaluate in what ways Nicholson succeeded and failed as a leader.
- Utilize Kelley’s five primary followership styles, discussed in the Module 4 Notes, and assess how the men under Nicholson’s command succeeded and/or failed (or both) as followers.
Please be sure to write a cohesive essay that explores the above points.

Kelley’s Primary Followership Styles
- Alienated Followers: Skeptical mavericks and devil’s advocates. Leaders often view these types of followers as troublesome or even adversarial. They think critically and independently, but do not fully carry out their roles. They sometimes begin as exemplary followers but later withdraw due to a lack of trust and unmet needs. Independent and passive.
- Conformist Followers: Nonthreatening team players who accept assignments gladly but lack their own ideas. Adverse to conflict and unwilling to take unpopular positions, they generate few ideas and require structure, but are an active part of the organization. Dependent and active.
- Pragmatist Followers: Terrific bureaucrats. They stay attuned to the organization’s political realities and are able to work the system and maintain comfort in the middle. They tend to play by the rules. Neither dependent nor independent; neither active nor passive.
- Passive Followers: Similar to conformist followers, passive followers rely on a leader’s judgment, taking action only when the leader gives instruction. They follow the crowd. Both dependent and passive.
- Exemplary Followers: They add value and make a positive difference in helping the organization achieve its goals. They focus on goals and take initiative. Independent and active.
