2. General Instructions.
• This is a 1000 Word Individual Essay, due before Friday 12pm (midday) of Week 5, Weighting: 20%
• You will need to submit your essay to turnitin on the unit’s ilearn site.
• No hard copies need to be submitted.
• You are required to use essential tutorial readings, several of the additional readings on the ilearn site and concepts and arguments in the lecture slides to answer this question (as a guide, a minimum of 6 articles from the unit would need to be used for this essay).
• You are required to take a critical, questioning approach in your essay – not to simply reproduce taken-for-granted assertions about the importance of leadership.
• You should base your essay on academic articles that have been uploaded for you on the ilearn site and those referenced in lectures.
• If you wish to use articles and sources from outside the unit you should be aware that these should only be used to supplement the articles on the ilearn site and referenced in the lectures – to hope to pass the assessment you need to show that you have read and used the articles and readings that constitute this unit.
• General discussions of leadership drawn from sources that do not demonstrate engagement with the readings, ideas and syllabus of this unit will result in a fail mark.
