American Leadership is demonstrated by the President of the United States (POTUS) through actions and dedication to the role of the Oval Office; archival speeches provided contextualized examples relevant to understanding the impact of a President. Alignment to the field of organizational leadership management was the delivery system of the Oval Office, a publicized and influential administration. A topic such as the identification of common words and phrases specific to Presidential speeches used to address audiences benefited the management degree field. As Management, administration leaders can apply examples of word patterns used in Presidential communication to influence a group of followers and develop a definite cognitive and social speaking deliverance, increasing their impact. Historical archival data of speech delivery beginning with the 33rd President of 1945 and concluding with the 44th President of 2016, was a population representation of twelve POTUS, and a balanced sample of six Democratic and six Republican Presidents. Speeches specific to each POTUS first-term Inaugural Address, State of the Union, and the Farewell Address (or last Remarks) as President provided context comparable in word patterns used by leaders to communicate. Sourcing from the Presidential elections, party, and campaign were examples of a timeline for each POTUS. Alignment with a historical case study design by a qualitative method explored leadership and followership communication patterns. Literature topics from social events and describing narratives of past and current POTUS communication, language, speaking, campaign rhetoric, leadership psychology, Presidential studies, and social personalities add credence to the study.
