Assignment Question “Choose an organisation that you are familiar with and based on that knowledge and understanding, write a report identifying and discussing the leadership style(s) used within the organisation. Your report should provide a critical analysis of the effectiveness of these leadership styles.

My lecturer notes below:

  1. The aim of the assignment is to assess whether you do have a good understanding and knowledge following the lectures and seminars, of the different leadership styles and their effectiveness.
  2. To demonstrate this, the assessment requirement is for you to choose an organisation and understand the different leadership styles at play within the organisation so that you can adequately analyse the effectiveness of the varied styles within it.
  3. The recommendation will be to choose an organisation that is in the public sector or a medium sized organisation as that will give you more depth and breadth in terms of your analysis of the leadership style(s)
  4. Most organisations will have at play more than one leadership style particularly if there are multiple levels in the hierarchy.
  5. The assessment is not restricting you to one leadership style but for you to identify all and analyse these.
  6. Being level 6 students, the analysis needs to be critical and underpinned by theoretical knowledge

In the report please also include executive summary/abstract/synopsis on the company (to give company background).

As well as critical analysing the effectiveness of the company’s leadership style, please make sure the report includes HR theories from the PowerPoints attached in the email.

Briefly make recommendations for the company’s leadership style as well.
