  1. Leading Groups -reflection on team activities.

    Slowly afterwards, some members started sharing their ideas on how to work out the tasks but it was visible that my team experienced difficulties with the distributions of the workload. During the negotiation process, some team members felt overlooked with the tasks given as they were given fewer opportunities to participate while some other members had a more active role in allocating tasks. Evidently, teamwork can be challenging; especially when team building is overlooked and there is ineffective participation of all the members.

  2. Analysing and applying theories of leadership.

    Emotional quotient, emotional intelligence, and similar terms all refer to the same concept. Emotional intelligence is concerned with how your emotions affect others and how you can use this information to achieve positive outcomes. It extends beyond the administrative aspects of being a successful leader and focuses on interacting with others (Chopra & Kanji, 2010). It is not necessary to jump as high as "I say, how high?" when using emotional intelligence as a method of leadership, as is commonly believed. To be a successful leader, you must command the respect of your employees.

  • "Discuss what you consider to be the most important qualities of a modern organisational leader and to what extent you agree with the assertation that effective leadership is now critical to organisational success.

    "In conclusion there are certain qualities and skills both personal and non-personal which leaders must possess in order to be a leader.. They are usually learned and along with the knowledge of knowing when and where to use them. Different leaders will have different styles depending on the organisation they operate in, the task or company objective and types of followers they enlist. History has shown us undeniable proof of what can result from good and bad leadership. Keith Grint sums up a leader as someone who " causes others to act " . With regards to the positive effects of good leadership this is encapsulated in a statement from Daniel Dafoe when he says that " An army of lions led by a sheep is no match for an army of sheep led by a Lion ! " ( Grint, 1995 )"

  • "Information technology vitally assists in overcoming barriers to entry to competition in most industries." Critically discuss this statement stating whether you agree or disagree.

    "Conclusion Although a firm can enter in the market quickly with the help of IT, but it will not sustain in the market without 'right' model or competitive strategy. If a firm is not armed with right competitive strategy to counter the threats of five forces , then "IT doesn't matter" (Carr 2003)."

  • "The business of family business in Asia is the family." Discuss

    "In conclusion, this essay has examined the case that CFBs main concern is the family and not of business prosperity and profits. This was evident as CFBs have many structures and methods of doing business that did not lend itself to maximising the success of the business. However, CFBs dominate the corporate world of Asia and so a paradox was created in how a business model that did not place success or profits as its main concern or motive has managed to become so successful and dominate the Asian markets. This was examined and argued that focusing on the family and traditional Confucius values led to extremely successful businesses. The family was a tool for business success and therefore CFBs did not place family above profit but used it as a mechanism for profit gains and therefore they went hand-in-hand. However, the essay concludes that in today's modern, global market, CFBs that wish to stay competitive and enter the increasingly Westernised and standardised business practices must move away from the CFB model. This is apparent and so concluding that CFBs do not place family above profit as when it comes down to it, CFBs are gradually converging to western practices for the reason of business success and profits."
