Critically analyse and review the leadership capabilities of an actual leader-either someone you know or an historical or current leader and clearly identify and link those attributes and processes that identify this person as an effective leader.
This assignment focuses on the competencies of an named individual of your choice and the starting point should be the leader - chose someone who you admire for some reason and make sure that you give the background necessary to help the person marking your work understand the reasons for your choice. The analysis should describe the context in which the leader works, what this person has achieved and must also comment on the abilities this person exhibited. Where appropriate you should illustrate the assignment with relevant theory. The purpose of the assignment covers learning outcomes 1, 2 and to some extent 3
