Leadership and Management – A Guide to Leadership – What distinguishes leadership from management
Written Report ‘A Guide to Leadership’:
The assignment for Leadership and Management is an individual written report outlining the key issues that should be considered in understanding leadership. This includes explaining what is involved in being an effective leader, and some personal reflection on the process of leading.
As a way to help you structure this these are the three specific questions for you to answer:
- What is involved in being a successful leader?
- Can good leadership be developed, and if so, how?
- What distinguishes leadership from management?
You must provide answers to all of the questions and you must clearly inform the reader about critical considerations in developing and practicing good leadership.
The written report significantly focuses on the idea of leadership. You need to present your answers and arguments of the questions to be fully supported by evidence from appropriate leadership academic references (leadership journal articles, leadership studies, real-life leadership examples) that have come from a reliable and trustworthy source.
Charts, diagrams and figures may all be used wherever appropriate to the points being made. You are not required to use them, but if you do then you are expected to reference them correctly.
You must provide examples of leadership models and examples of real-life leaders and incorporate these examples into the written report.
*Within the other files attached, I have included the topics/aspects of leadership that have been covered. It is CRUCIAL for you to read each topic as well as carry out research in answering the questions and writing the written report.
