Task Description Length: 2000 words Format: Report Format Task Required: The aim of this assignment is to allow participants to explore and develop key capabilities in one of the two key managing others capabilities addressed in the course. Students are to choose either: Conflict and Negotiation, or Empathy and Trust, or Teams and Groups. During the Saturday workshops, diagnostic tools and mini-simulation activities will be undertaken for each topic that serve as the experiential basis for individual reflection about current practice. These are compulsory activities for students enrolled in the on campus delivery mode. Students who do not attend and participate in these activities will be deemed not to have completed this component of the assessment task and will receive a penalty. Online students are provided with alternative experiential activities. Students are then to prepare a literature review about the chosen topic that defines the key terms and outlines key theories or models and application (1000 words Approx). Students must utilise at least three (3) of the diagnostic tools undertaken during the workshops (such as the Johari Window, Thomas Khilman Conflict Questionnaire, The Big 5, ESCI, Belbin Team Inventory etc.) that provide insights into current capabilities or preferences. Students are to contrast the results of the diagnostics tests and compare these to the literature so as to identify key strengths and weakness in their managing others capabilities (500 words Approx). Students are then to identify two areas for improvement. Using your learnings from the literature review and diagnostic tools, develop a realistic plan of activities designed to improve your knowledge and skills over a 6 month period(500 words Approx). Research Requirements: A minimum of 12 scholarly references are to be used that includes at least 4 peer reviewed journal articles included as citations within the report. Keep in mind that the external sources (outside the textbooks) must be peer reviewed journal articles or scholarly book chapters. If you are in doubt of what constitutes a journal article or scholarly book chapter you need to ask your lecturer/professor or tutor. Assessment Criteria ability to construct a detailed and cohesive literature review that defines key concepts and terms related to the selected competency/capability as part of the literature review to summarise and contrast key concepts/models related to the selected competency/capability provide the results of 3 diagnostic tools that relate to the selected competency and to analyse these against the literature to identify personal strengths and weaknesses ability to devise a personal (management) development plan, supported by literature, that addresses these key capability needs demonstrate a breadth and quality of research by using a minimum of 12 academic sources from recommended texts and Journal articles use of the Harvard in text referencing system to correctly cite academic sources
