This first is a reflective activity which requires you to critically examine a leadership scenario (single critical incident, dilemma or challenge which you have identified and reflected on throughout your career journey). During this reflection you are required to consider:
How the role and nature of the organisation affected the leadership approach.
What knowledge, skills and behaviours were required.
How the response could have been improved.
In the second part, you are required to develop a 12-month personal development plan considering the development of your leadership skill set.
Throughout, you may wish to draw from:
The outcomes of your reflection in part one.
The results of a leadership assessment/ diagnostic tool.
Professional diary or journal.
The plan should be realistic and implementable, with suitable associated timelines.The plan should identify how you will initiate, work toward and sustain improvements in your leadership skillset.
Reflective cycles can and must be ideally be used to structure the assignment. Contemporary literature should also be drawn to evidence your arguments.
