Assignment Question
Is it possible to learn or to develop leadership skills?
Approaching the question
On the basis of your understanding of the leadership literature, reflect on
whether – and if so, to what degree – leadership can be learnt or developed.
You need to show that you have a good grasp of some of the central ideas in
the leadership literature that are relevant to this topic; have been able to
reflect on this literature; have been able to draw your own conclusions; and
supply good argumentation to support your conclusion.
Students are reminded that whilst some questions may very evidently refer
to a particular unit, they are all designed to span issues across the entire
module. A full answer to the question will require reflection on the issues
that you have encountered throughout the module. It is important to bear in
mind that the content of your answer will depend on the argument that you
wish to put forward in answer to the question and not solely on the
concepts that the question explicitly identifies.
Assessment Criteria
Assignment expected to demonstrate:
• Knowledge and understanding of the literature that suggests that
leadership is fixed (e.g. ‘traits’ approach).
• Understanding of the difference between ‘learning’ (i.e. mainly by
being taught) or developing (i.e. mainly via relevant experience)
leadership skills.
• Knowledge and understanding of the literature that suggests that
leadership can be taught or developed.
• Critical reflection on the literature.
• Some knowledge of the wider leadership literature and ability to link
it to your argument.
