Assessment Part Two:  Reflective Essay (60%)

Question

What is leadership?  In this 1500-word essay (and considering the module material to date), you are asked to explore such areas as: what does it mean to you; it is important; why and for what reason; and what is its purpose?   

Advice on how to answer this question:

  • From the material presented in the module, please chose two leadership concepts (i.e. theories e.g. leadership traits; distributed leadership; servant leadership; leadership styles etc).
  • Critically assess the two concepts you have chosen using academic and practitioner literature and writing in the 3rd person. (e.g. Define, explain and draw out the merits, strengths, weaknesses, advantages and disadvantages)
  • Drawing on your work experience to date, please give example of how these two concepts relate to the world of practice/work.  
  • Note:  In your answer, it is essential that you draw on the relevant literature – both academic and practitioner – to support your work.
  • An excellent submission will show how the ‘theory explains practice’ and/or how ‘the practice of leadership compliments or supports the stated theory’.
  • Further useful information on how to answer this question is given in the slides ‘Component 2 – What great looks like’ in the Assessment instructions on moodle
