Assessment Criteria:

This reflective essay is to really reflect on what you do well and discuss and critique this and also to explore what you might like to improve. Talk about your leadership and management capability and competence. Some of you might not have had an opportunity to reflect on what resilience should mean for you or your team; some of you might be very skilled at coaching others and others less so etc.

Thus your work is not compared to others nor is there an expectation that you should be at a certain ‘stage’ in terms of leadership or management. The assessment criteria centre around the coherence of your discussion your ability to critically evaluate and reflect the use and integration of a range of relevant (academic) literature and the quality of the analysis.
