Notes

  1. The primary purpose of this assignment is for you to demonstrate that you have studied, understood, and can apply the ideas in Weeks 7, 8, 9, and 10 of MGNT903.
  2. This assignment is structured as an empirical research report. Part 1 is the equivalent of the literature review (i.e., an explanation of why it is important to understand implicit leadership theories). Part 2 is the equivalent of the methodology section (i.e., an explanation of the method you used to reveal your own implicit leadership theory). Briefly introduce yourself and your leadership context before describing the methods you used. Also, explain the intended purpose of the various exercises, not just a description of the exercises. Part 3 is the equivalent of the results section (i.e., what you found out about the content of your implicit leadership theory). Part 4 is the equivalent of your discussion (i.e., an explanation of why the results matter).
  3. Part (1) mainly refers to the material in Weeks 7 and 8 (and the readings on the romance of leadership from Week 5). Parts (2) and (3) mainly refers to the exercises in Weeks 8 and 9. Part (4) mainly refers to the material in Week 10 on authenticity and leader development. You should be referring to this material and the associated readings (required and optional) in these sections.
  4. In the first part, write in the third person. In this part, you need to demonstrate that you have understood the nature of implicit leadership theories and how they relate to the socially constructed approach to leadership. In the second, third, and fourth parts, focus on you and your implicit leadership theory. Write in the first person and explain how you came to understand your own implicit leadership theory.
  5. You should include photographs or copies of your rich picture, cognitive map, and answers to the various other exercises in your assignment.
