The task for this assessment is to prepare and present a plan for your development as a
leader. The period of your plan could be 2, 5 or 10 years. Select the period that makes most
sense to you, depending on the current stage of your life and career. Briefly explain the
reason for the time period that you have selected.
Your plan needs to be based on or anchored by an established model of personal
development. A number of possible models were provided in Module 1. The choice of a
model is up to you. The Whitman GROW and Boyatzis Intentional Change models are two of
the most comprehensive at a personal level. However, other models may be more relevant
to your current needs. You are also welcome to use an appropriate model that was not
included in Module 1, provided it meets the tests of academic rigour and usefulness to you.
Provide a brief description of your chose model and a justification for your selection. It is
important that you go to the source documents and not rely only on the summary version of
your chosen model.
Additional information on leadership development to help you prepare your plan and to
continue your reflexive journal is provided in the subject Resources section of each module.
