The learning design of this subject is to focus on your own leadership journey and not to study leadership as some remote, theoretical concept that applies to other people. This assessment enables you to build self-awareness and a clear sense of how you came to be the person and emerging leader that you are today. It encourages deep reflection on your life and leadership journey to your present position. It helps you to increase your understanding of your current leadership capabilities and potential. The assessment requires you to establish a mentoring relationship with another student in the class so that you can provide mutual learning support and exchange constructive feedback with each other. In addition to this classmate, you can also request feedback from a trusted colleague in your work, personal or wider student networks.
Your task in Assessment 1 Part B is to reflect on you own leadership journey up until now, your current role or position, how you influence others, how you lead, contribute to or react to organisational and cultural changes and your current level of self-awareness and self- confidence to lead others in your organisation and/or community.
Assessment 2, which is due at the end of WEEK 11, builds on the first and asks you to prepare a plan for the next stage of your leadership journey. The assessments are integrated pieces of work and you should bear in mind the final part as you work on this part. All assessments need to be strongly based on the established theories and models of leadership to help you interpret and explain your leadership challenges.
Working with Your Partner [this is 20% (Criterion 2) of your overall assessment]:
You need to be proactive to connect with other students in your on-line/ face-to- face class, once you post your personal introduction on the “Welcome and Introductions” Discussion Forum. On-line students can select a partner from class mates who have posted introductions, or choose a trusted colleague from your work, student or personal networks. On-line students need to take responsibility for selecting and interacting with a partner. Face-to-face students will be guided by your facilitator, taking into account diversity of backgrounds to enrich your learning experience. More detailed guidelines for working with your partner are provided at the end of this section.
