Leadership

Leadership

Assignment on Leadership:

Using relevant theories and models critically evaluate and analyse the leadership of a 21st century leader of a (business, government or not-for-profit) organisation. If you were in the position of the leader, what could you do to be a better leader and make a stronger impact on the followers and on the situation?

For this assignment you can select a leader from a large or a small organisation. You can select a leader from your own organisation or one that you are familiar with. It could be a CEO of an international organisation whom you have read about in the newspapers/biographies, or a family member who runs a small business with a few staff members. The choice of leader and organisation is yours.

Write a report in which you cover the following:

A clear description of the leader, the organisation/industry, and situation/context.
An evaluation of the leader by referring to concepts and theories covered in the subject (e.g. style, behaviour, traits, attitudes, power) and by referring to relevant examples and mini-cases in the textbook (where appropriate).
A discussion of how you would lead differently if you were put in the same situation/s as the leader and how you could make a stronger impact on the followers and on the situation/s.
It is important to demonstrate your knowledge about Leadership and to clearly reference your sources. Read about Leadership in journal articles (using AIB Online Library), books (including the textbook), business literature, etc. Note the sources and use then throughout the report.

Remember that pure description and paraphrasing is not sufficient. A good report will clearly take an analytical approach and demonstrate application of leadership concepts/theories.

Leadership

Leadership occurs in context and is increasingly complex due to globalisation and a myriad of ethical considerations. Oftentimes, leading becomes an exercise in addressing wicked problems. The successful leader performs this work in a social context: synthesising varied knowledge from different sources and people, drawing conclusions (or drawing out conclusions from others), and exercising appropriate judgement. Most important, leading means facilitating the creation ofa shared sense of meaning as to what is happening in a given situation
and what the desired outcomes ofthat situation are forthe group or organisation. To aid you in this synthesis and provide you with an opportunity to demonstrate the skills you will need to complete your dissertation or consultancy project, the focus ofthe Module project
will be the critical analysis ofa wicked problem, a Shell oil spill in Nigeria. You will find information and outcomes from the event in
the following articles:

Ezigbo, O. 8. Bassey, O. (2010) ‘Oil spill-environment practitioners want compensation from Shell [Online].
Available from: http://tsaftarmuhalli.blogspot.nl/2010/07/oil-spill-environment-practitioners_03.html (Accessed: 17 July 2012).
In
addition, be sure to incorporate ideas from the following article in your project:

Donaldson, T. 8. Preston, L. (1995) ‘The
stakeholdertheory ofthe corporation: concepts, evidence, and implications’, The Academy of Management Review, 20 (1), pp.65-91.
Brooks, l. (2009) Organisational behaviour: individuals, groups and organisation. 4th ed. Harlow, UK: Pearson.

Jackson, B. and Parry,K. (2008) Avery short, fairly interesting and reasonably cheap book about studying leadership. London: Sage

In this article, the author discusses the concept of organizational stakeholders and the implications for management.

Address the following:

Conduct research and provide a brief organisational and historical background on Shell as it relates to its operations, the xtent of its globalisation, and its reputation for ethics and corporate social responsibility.

Identify and discuss how each ofthe
three stakeholders in this wicked problem might make sense of it in different ways. For example, an investor may see the cleanup effort as
something that might impact their dividends and returns. However, that same person may also see the cleanup effort as an important fight to
minimise harmful impacts on the environment.

Discuss ways of constructing an understanding ofthis event that may be productive forthe
different stakeholders. ldentify outcomes that would be reinforced or in conflict with this sense-making.

In the context of leadership
research and established leadership theories, discuss how each ofthe three stakeholders can have a personal impact on howthe situation or
problem might be addressed. Identify a way to create a shared understanding ofthe wicked problem.
