Task 1
In this task you are to show understanding of both K1 and K2 above.You might start with demonstrating your understanding and application of management and leadership but equally important is the role an organisation’s ethical and value based relationship impacts on staff. You will write a reflective commentary of how the theoretical perspectives on leadership and management have influenced the development of your own management and leadership skills

This commentary will include a professional development plan and a timeline that shows what you will do to create a career. This will be linked to the management and leadership theories taught in the module. The plan can be related to a company you work for or the type of company you hope to work for in the future.

Some tips on writing the reflective report:-

1.You will write in the first person using personal pronouns, e.g. My professional development plan relates to my work at Now and Never a fashion house in Timbucktoo. I have worked there for five years as an assistant and I shall be applying for the management training scheme next year….

Each week we will be introducing you to different theories of management and leadership and you will be encouraged to keep a learning log/diary throughout. You will be working in a team for several tasks such as case studies and role play so your reflection should include how this experience impacted on your learning. You can separate out the topics and take any style of report you choose. Perhaps you may choose to write the reflection per topic:

Management development
I read the recommended reading from Week 1 and found that the ideas of X… resonated with my experience. X states that a good manager should….I believe this to be reasonable but when things go wrong….

I think leaders arise out of the situation they are in. For example….
Alternatively you may choose a structured approach: Introduction and numbered points. It does not matter what is important is you draw on the theories and the experience of the module to explain how you have developed your ideas and noted how you will put these to practice in a work situation and/or career path.

Personal Development Plan – this is detailed and backs up what you claim in Task 1.
You will put your Personal Development. Think of where you want to be in your career in 3- 5 years’ time, then work backwards to today. Here is an example of the structure and some possible sentences.
