Assessment Executive Leadership will be assessed by your performance on an Individual Coursework Assignment (100% of the module assessment).

Word Limit: 4,000 words (excluding indented quotations and bibliography) Written assignments must not exceed the specified maximum number of words. All assignments which do so will be penalized. The penalty will be the deduction of 10% of the maximum marks available (I. E. 10%). Assignments will not be accepted without a word count on the Cover Sheet. This assignment must be received by tab. The deadline for submission of mitigation in relation to this assignment is tab which is five working days after the deadline. Refer to your Student Handbook for details.

The penalty for late submission of this assignment will be a mark of ‘O’. Requests for short-term extensions will only be considered in the case of illness or received and agreed by your Student Advisor in writing at least twenty four hours ROR to the deadline.

Anglia Risking University Provisional Ashcroft International Business School MBA Executive Leadership MOD001094 Individual Assignment 100% of the module assessment You are required to write a management report which: Critically reflects on your own effectiveness as a leader. ; Produces recommendations for your own personal leadership development. The reflection and recommendations should focus on 3 broad aspects of leadership (see details below for suggestions). Your reflection should ideally focus on current leadership experience and/or that of the recent past (IEEE. The last 2 years). Your report count.

Important Considerations Although the report will contain elements of description to outline the circumstances, the emphasis should be on critical evaluation of your leadership and lessons to be learned for the future. You should use relevant classical and contemporary leadership theories or paradigms reviewed during the course of the Module ABSCESSES as a focus for your analysis. You should, where possible, seek to produce evidence to support your points. The range of acceptable evidence might include: ; Primary research: interviews, questionnaires, written feedback from colleagues etc. Secondary research: reflective exercises, evaluation forms, appraisal reports etc. Evidence may be placed in appendices to the main report. Areas of leadership that you might like to explore include: ; Qualities of Leadership Leadership Skills ; Leadership Styles ; Leader – led Relationships ; Organizational Politics & Power ; Developing Leadership in Others ; Emotional Intelligence ; Team Leadership ; Conflict Resolution ; Charismatic or Transformational Leadership ; Spiritual Leadership Other areas may also be considered.

Please discuss with your module tutor. It would be ideal to focus on areas that are of relevance to your leadership development at the current time. Your assignment will be assessed according to the following criteria:- Marks Identification of relevant key leadership issues Critical use of relevant theoretical concepts and paradigms 30% 4 Recommendations for future leadership development Total 100% All coursework assignments and other forms of assessment must be submitted by the published deadline which is detailed above.

It is your responsibility to know when work is due to be submitted – ignorance of the deadline date will not be accepted as a reason for late or non-submission. All student work which contributes to the eventual outcome of the module (e: if it determines whether you will pass or fail the module and counts towards the mark oh achieve for the module) is submitted via the centre using the formal submission sheet. Academic staff CANNOT accept work directly from you.

If you decide to submit your work to the centre by post, it must arrive by midday on the due date. If you elect to post your work, you do so at your own risk and you must ensure that sufficient time is provided for your work to arrive at the ‘Centre. Posting your work the day before a deadline, albeit by first class post, is extremely risky and not advised. Any late work (submitted in person or by post) will NOT be accepted and a mark of err will be awarded for the assessment task in question.

You are requested to keep a copy of your work. 5. 1 Submitting a [email protected] Originality Report For this module you are required to submit your Turning Digital Receipt with your assignment at the ‘Centre. Please provide the digital receipt in a sealed envelope with your Student Identification Descriptor (SIDE) on the front of it. The Originality Report will not be used to make assessment decisions unless concerns about poor academic practice, plagiarism or collusion arise out of the usual anonymous marking arrangements.

The report may then be considered as part of the normal investigatory procedures undertaken by the academic team and the Director of Studies (again, please see Section 10 of the Assessment Regulations). Feedback For all assessment tasks which are not examinations, this is provided by a member of academic staff completing the assignment coversheet on which your mark and feedback will relate to the achievement of the module’s intended learning outcomes and the assessment criteria you were given for the task when it was first issued. Examination scripts are retained by Anglia Risking and are not returned to students.

However, you are entitled to feedback on your performance in an examination and may request a meeting with the Module Leader or Tutor to see your examination script and to discuss your performance. Anglia Risking is committed to providing you with feedback on all assessed work within 20 working days of the submission deadline or the date of an examination. This is extended to 30 days for feedback for a Major Project module (please note that working days excludes those days when Anglia Risking University is officially closed; egg: between Christmas and New Year).

Personal tutors will offer to read feedback room several modules and help you to address any common themes that may be emerging. At the main Anglia Risking University campuses, each Faculty will publish details of the arrangement for the return of your assessed work (egg: a marked essay or case study etc. ). Any work which is not collected by you from the Faculty within this timestamp is returned to the ‘Centre from where you can subsequently collect it. The sciences retain student work for a specified period prior to its disposal.

To assure ourselves that our marking processes are comparable with other universities in the I-J, Anglia Risking provides samples of student assessed work to external examiners as a routine part of our marking processes. External examiners are experienced academic staff from other universities who scrutinize your work and provide Anglia Risking academic staff with feedback and advice. Many of Anglia Russian’s staff act as external examiners at other universities. On occasion, you will receive feedback and marks for pieces of work that you completed in the earlier stages of the module.

We provide you with this feedback as art of the learning experience and to help you prepare for other assessment tasks that you have still to complete. It is important to note that, in these cases, the marks for these pieces of work are unconfirmed as the processes described above for the use of external examiners will not have been completed. This means that, potentially, marks can change, in either direction! Marks for modules and individual pieces of work become confirmed on the Dates for the Official Publication of Results which can be checked at www. Anglia. AC. UK/results. 6.
