The purpose of all assessments, combined, is to reflect on your own leadership journey,
obtain feedback from your assigned partner and other trusted sources, evaluate your
current leadership style, effectiveness and potential and then prepare a plan for your
continued development as a leader. The assessments are integrated pieces of work and you
should draw on the first parts as you work on this final part. The first assessment focused
on your journey so far and current capabilities. This final assessment report should present
your plans for your future development as a leader.

Your Task:
The task for this assessment is to prepare and present a plan for your development as a
leader. The period of your plan could be 2, 5 or 10 years. Select the period that makes most
sense to you, depending on the current stage of your life and career. Briefly explain the
reason for the time period that you have selected.
Your plan needs to be based on or anchored by an established model of personal
development. A number of possible models were provided in Module 1. The choice of a
model is up to you. The Whitman GROW and Boyatzis Intentional Change models are two of
the most comprehensive at a personal level. However, other models may be more relevant
to your current needs. You are also welcome to use an appropriate model that was not
included in Module 1, provided it meets the tests of academic rigour and usefulness to you.
Provide a brief description of your chose model and a justification for your selection. It is
important that you go to the source documents and not rely only on the summary version of
your chosen model.
Additional information on leadership development to help you prepare your plan and to
continue your reflexive journal is provided in the subject Resources section of each module.
The precise structure is up to you. A clear logic flow, using a “Contents” page and section
headings, will help your readers to follow your thinking. The use of an “Executive Summary”
as a précis or abstract of your report, an “Introduction” to set the context and a
“Conclusion” to capture your key learnings is desirable in a business subject. Detailed,
supporting information such as psychometric results, planning templates, etc., should be
placed in an appendix, where they will not be included in the word count.
Within the body of your report, the model of development that you choose will largely
determine the structure and section headings.
Reflexive Writing – First Person:
You should write in the first person, because this is about YOU, your reflections and your
interpretations. (eg “I considered this advice to be….. because it had a big impact on
my……..and it helped me to understand my………..”).
Try to be as specific as possible, use brief examples to illustrate your points and try to select
examples that enable you to demonstrate learning against the attributes in the rubric.
All other principles of academic writing apply, including strict referencing,
acknowledgement of the work of others and avoidance of plagiarism.

You should include a list of specific references that you have actually used in your
report. For this assessment, a minimum of three journal articles, academic papers or
textbooks is expected. References to any secondary sources or web sites are
additional. The reference list and Executive Summary (if you choose to use one) and
any appendices will not be included in the word count.
It is essential that you use appropriate APA style for citing and referencing research.
