1. Report on the relevance or applicability of leadership theories to a selected country.
Much of the research on leadership set for this course and referenced in your text is based in “Anglo” countries, particularly the USA and the UK. Your report will discuss the relevance or applicability of leadership theories from your text to a selected country.
Within your report, you should:
briefly identify the ‘other’ country that you will be discussing, e.g. India, Taiwan.
discuss how culture and practices in the workplace of the selected country differ from those in Australia or more generally in ‘Anglo’ countries.
discuss the relevance of leadership theories in your selected country. You may choose to focus on one or two leadership theories and discuss their relevance in some depth.
It is expected that this report will be based on research on cultures and practices of your selected country, as well as any leadership research that has been conducted on that country, or on countries with similar cultural characteristics or practices. A list of academic articles on leadership and culture is provided at the beginning of your Study Guide that might assist you in your search for relevant material, but you are expected to search for additional relevant academic articles from the library databases.
