Essay: Positive Leadership Behaviours

Get Expert's Help on Essay Assessment

Task Description

You are required to write an essay. There are three options from which you may choose one. The essay must be supported by in-text citations and a reference list on the final page. You are expected to analyse and integrate theoretical and practical knowledge to demonstrate how you would implement positive leadership behaviours in your workplace or the workplaces described by the business owners and managers.

Rationale

Assessment 3 develops knowledge and skills about positive authentic leadership behaviours required to ensure the wellbeing and engagement of employees. Effective leadership is relational, which in turn requires a leader to understand the needs of employees. Engaging young professional males in the workplace may require a different approach from engaging experienced baby boomer professional females. This assessment provides an opportunity to synthesise the many studies about how authentic leadership behaviours affect employee outcomes and performance.

Task Instructions

Option 1:

Listen to the interviews given by the business owners and managers, roundtable discussions and youtube interviews found in the ‘Unit Content’ area under ‘Student Resources’ in Blackboard. These resources show various levels of authentic leadership and also discuss the link between authentic leadership and employees’ Psychological Capital, wellbeing and performance. You are expected to:

(1a) Use at least five journal articles about authentic leadership and/or Psychological Capital to compare and contrast the extent to which at least two business owners or managers display authentic leadership behaviour and high PsyCap, and, identify areas of weaknesses that need further development (500 words).

(1b) Evaluate which strategies/pathways could be used to improve their authentic leadership behaviours to increase employees’ Psychological Capital, performance and wellbeing. Consider different types of employees based on differences in gender or age or education level or ethnicity. You can focus on two owners/managers, or compare and contrast different examples (500 words).

Option 2

(2a) Use at least five journal articles about authentic leadership and/or Psychological Capital to compare and contrast the extent to which you demonstrate authentic leadership behaviour and high PsyCap when managing, and, identify areas of weaknesses that need further development (500 words).

(2b) Apply your new knowledge and skills about authentic leadership and PsyCap to develop a pathway for you to become a more effective positive leader. Use the unit content and the reading list to identify what behaviours in leaders are most likely to create better outcomes for employees. Consider different types of employees based on differences in gender or age or education level or ethnicity. Make sure you identify the relationships between specific behaviours and the outcomes based on the evidence in the research articles in the reading list (500 words).
