Is Emotional Intelligence a business imperative in contemporary organisations? Discuss the evolving role of emotional intelligence in effective leadership and its impact on leader-follower relationships.

An academic essay is not a summary of the lecture content or an overview of leadership theories – though you will use some of the theory covered. Instead, you need to use the theory and literature to address the specific question you are being asked – focus on this.

As you need to refer to literature throughout your essay, you need to do your own literature research. Academic texts include for example textbooks and journal articles. For your contemporary examples you may wish to refer to relevant web-based material such as a company website or newspaper articles. If you don’t know where to start your literature search, the ABI inform database may be useful with its wide coverage of leadership articles.

● ABI Inform Complete (Proquest)

In particular, the following journals may be helpful to you in relation to the prescribed topic:
● Leadership Quarterly (Available on Science Direct or ABI)
● Leadership and Organisation Development Journal (Available on ABI Inform)
● Team Performance Management (Available on ABI Inform)
● Journal of Management Development (Available on ABI Inform)
● Group and Organisation Management (Available on Sage Online)

While we do not specify a particular number of references/citations to be included, you should include at least a minimum of 15 different academic sources such as textbooks or journal articles in your essay.
All material cited must be referenced using the APA7 Referencing system. The referencing guidelines are available on your moodle page. Also please refer to the University guidance notes on the avoidance of Plagiarism.
Please remember to structure your essay appropriately. Headings are useful to signpost your line of thought and paragraphs structure the different arguments. You should include an introduction, a main body and a conclusion in your essay.

You should avoid using footnotes in your essay.
Bullet points and numbered lists should be avoided in your essay – focus on strong, well-supported arguments from the literature.
Please use “justify” alignment and 1 and a half or double spacing. Your font should be a suitable size (usually 11 or 12 font size).
The word count for Part B must be 2000 words. This excludes the cover page (if applicable) and reference list. This is subject to a +/- 10% allowance to the allocated word count.
