Summary
The assessment task requires students to evaluate their leadership “skills” and compose a 500-word response considering what they have learned about themselves and their perspectives on leadership, with an intentional focus on the leadership skills approach.
Referencing is Australian Harvard (AGPS) and outlined in the AIB Style Guide.
Note: Insert this summary description in Smarthinking. Submit your assessment for writing feedback from Smarthinking.
Learning Outcomes
Demonstrate advanced understanding of leadership theories, concepts and practice, including both traditional and contemporary forms of leadership (LO#1).
Task
Your first assessment task is designed to give you a starting point from which to reflect on your raw leadership approach and perspectives on leadership, as they are now, as you commence your MBA journey. This will start you on the, oftentimes difficult, path of critically reflecting on your personal leadership style – an important aspect of leadership development, even for the most seasoned of leaders.
Procedure
There are two parts to this assessment:
After engaging with the content in Week 1, you will have completed the following self-assessment questionnaire from the textbook in which you will gain insight into your own leadership competencies.
Leadership Skills Inventory (LSI)
Reflect on the questionnaire results that you received from the LSI (Chapter 3 of the textbook). Then, compose a 500-word response considering what you have learned about yourself and your perspectives on leadership.
Use the following questions as a guide to help you publish your response:
What have you learned about yourself as a result of completing this questionnaire? Give an example(s) that supports or is in contrast with these results.
What are the practical implications of these results on your leadership development?
What is the significance of these results in relation to the wider leadership perspectives discussed in Week 1?
After publishing your response, check it against the marking criteria for this task (see rubric below). Make sure it is free of errors and submit it for marking by the due date.
Important: If you haven’t already done so, it is essential that you complete Module 3 Academic Integrity located in the Orientation Program before submitting your first assessment.
Remember you can take the two quizzes as many times as you like. Tick the completion box on the main Assessment page once you have completed the two quizzes to an 80% pass grade.
Requirements
Note: All written assessments should be submitted as Word files (.docx) (Word is available from your AIB Office 365 account).
The required word length for this assessment is 500 words (plus 10% tolerance).
In terms of structure, presentation and style, you are required to use:
a. AIB standard essay format. This means that you do not typically use multiple headings and sub-headings within the body of your response, as you would when writing a report. Write well-structured paragraphs to develop and support your ideas.
b. You are required to follow the reflective writing style. Please refer to AIB Style Guide for more information.
Please be aware that the best practice in academic writing is to write in the third person style as this makes your writing more objective and less biased. However, as Assessment 1 is a reflective piece, you are allowed to write in first person when referring to your personal/professional experiences – see point 6 (Reflective Writing) in the AIB Style Guide.
This assessment requires you to use a minimum of two (2) contemporary academic sources in addition to your textbook. You may also use current company, industry, government and media sources to support your statements, but these will NOT count toward the minimum required credible academic sources for your assessment. Most web-based sources are not sufficiently rigorous and credible for use in academic assessments and will NOT count toward the minimum required credible academic sources for your assessment. For further guidance, refer to Scholarly, academic & peer-reviewed journals.
You must appropriately acknowledge all sources of information in your assessment with the AIB Harvard author-date style of referencing – see the AIB Style Guide and Assessment Policy.
Utilise the suggested structure outlined in this ‘Reflection template’ as described below:
Note: Table of Contents and Executive Summary are NOT required for Assessment 1.
Cover Page
No Table of Contents
No Executive Summary
Introduction
Paragraph 1
Paragraph 2
Conclusion
On a new page: Reference List (you must reference prescribed textbook plus a minimum of two additional sources). Not included in the word limit.
No appendices (Please do not add any surveys as an appendix).
Grading criteria and feedback
You will receive feedback on their reflection from your Online Learning Facilitator in order to provide an indication of the strength of your work. This feedback will create a formative foundation in the subject knowledge and will provide a framework for your responses in Assessment 2 and 3. Your assessment will be marked according to the following grading criteria:
Criterion 1: Depth of reflection in response to questionnaire results (20%).
Discussion of questionnaires’ results in relation to the contemporary leadership theory underpinning the questionnaire.

Explanation of the practical implications of the questionnaire results to your future leadership development.
Criterion 3: Demonstrated understanding of relevant theories and concepts (35%).
Linkage of theories/concepts to the discussion.
Range of theories and concepts discussed.
Critical analysis of theories and concepts.
Criterion 4: Communication, presentation, structure and language (5%).
