Assessment Description
In recent weeks, you have been exposed to a wide range of leadership styles. These have included transformational leadership, transactional leadership, servant leadership, authentic leadership, spiritual leadership, ethical leadership, remote leadership, and distributed leadership.
You have also been exposed to the concept of organisational crises. An organisational crisis can include extortion, hostile takeovers, product tampering, environmental spills, security breaches, executive kidnapping, product boycotts, work-related homicides, natural disasters, bribery, terrorist attacks, plant explosions, product recalls and, of course, economic and financial crises.
For this video presentation, you are required to select any organisational crisis of your choice (just one) and any leadership style of your choice (again, just one). Then, record a 5-minute video presentation that contains the following components:
1. The likely causes of the organisational crisis.
2. The potential consequences of the crisis.
3. The advantages of the selected leadership style in solving that crisis.
4. The disadvantages of that leadership style in solving the crisis.
5. Three recommendations on how those disadvantages could be overcome.
To ensure success in your video presentation, take account of the following:
• Check the lighting quality so that your lecturer can clearly see you on screen.
• Test the audio quality so that your voice can be heard without difficulty.
• Record the video in a quiet room so that disturbances are minimised.
• Observe the screenshot so that your entire face can be seen.
• Talk to the camera rather than read from your notes. • Get creative. It’s not just what you say and how you say it; it’s also how you present it.
• Be conscious of your body language. Is it helping you? Or is it hindering your message?
• Practice numerous times beforehand so that you become polished and confident.
• You do not need to submit any written material for this assessment; just the recording.
