Detailed guidance
You are required to produce an individual report exploring the impact of leadership styles
and skills on teams and organisational objectives in an organisation of your choice; this may
be the organisation that you work for or another organisation that you know well or have
studied. You should also consider an ethical and value-based approach to the organisation’s
leadership. The report should address the following tasks:
1. Discuss and justify the different leadership styles required in different situations faced
by the organisation in achieving organisational objectives
2. Critically assess of the prevailing leadership styles in the organisation on teams’
performance and organisational objectives. You should specifically discuss how the
organisation’s leaders can establish a culture of professionalism, mutual trust,
respect and support within their teams; and support and develop their teams’
understanding of the organisation’s direction.
3. Discuss the organisation’s ethical and value-based approach to leadership. Through
this analysis, examine the impact of culture and values; legal, regulatory and ethical
requirements; and stakeholder needs and expectations on leadership in the
organisation.
Make sure that you provide a wide range of evidence to support your judgement; this could
include a combination of objective/practical evidence as well as relevant theoretical models
and frameworks covered in this module and wider.

Grade Use of Theory (25%) Report Structure and Presentation

(20%) Evaluation of Consequences (25%) Evaluation and Analysis (30%)

Below 35 The report is exceedingly poor
with very little of merit

Poor grammar, structure and academic
referencing wrong throughout
