Leadership in Organisations

Drawing on the concepts you have studied on this module, identify and assess Ricardo Semler’s key leadership strengths, weaknesses and challenges, and make recommendations for the current leaders at Semco. Context: The sources on Ricardo Semler, his organisation (SEMCO) and his country (Brazil), provide the opportunity to discuss the notion of leadership in context. • Answers should be of no more than 1,500 words. (+- 10%, excluding references) • The answer should take the form of a properly structured short essay. • This coursework is due by 9am (via FASER), on 28/3/2018 (Wednesday, week 26). Essential contents: 1. Overview: Your piece must include a very brief overview of the case – based on supplied/suggested sources (see at the end of this brief), and any other sources you find helpful to make your argument. In that short overview you should also highlight the theoretical concepts and perspectives which you consider relevant to analyse the case. 2. In your analysis and discussion of the case, you must make reference to specific concepts studied on this module. (no more than two core concepts/issues) 3. In your assignment you MUST WORK with Avolio et al. (2009). This article gives an overview of different approaches to leadership, which should help you in your analysis. 4. Recommendations for the future. Given the changing nature of Semco’s business model, what recommendations do you have for the future leadership approach in this company?
