In this discussion, you will develop a specific research question associated with your topic of interest and research focus, based on the research you have conducted over the past five weeks. Your research question should probe an aspect of the topic that you wish to explore in greater depth. For example, if your topic of interest is emotional intelligence and leadership effectiveness, your research focus and your subsequent research question might explore the effectiveness of leaders with differing levels of emotional intelligence.
Make sure that the question you write is specific enough to narrow the topic area. For example, the question, â€œWhy is emotional intelligence important to leadership success?â€ is very broad and represents a research focus, not a research question. A more specific research question might be, â€œHow does the emotional intelligence of female executives influence the success of not-for-profit organizations?â€ Identify your question and then explain why you selected this specific question, referencing some of the sources you gathered over the past weeks to justify your choice of topics and to expand on your understanding of the topic. Make sure to explain why your research question is of interest both to you and to the practitioner community more generally. should be at least 300 words in length, and should reference at least two different academic sources.
