The Case Assignment
Most of us are familiar with the role of a manager and a leader. We also know the functions each is expected to perform. However, there is a trend in the UK that puts managers in a different role. This trend is manager as coach (MAC) and will be the focus of this assignment. Before beginning the tasks, please read the following article:
Ladyshewsky, R. K. (2010). The manager as coach as a driver of organizational development. Leadership & Organization Development Journal, 31(4), 292-306.
1.What is meant by the terms manager as coach (MAC)?
2.Is this role more appropriate for a leader or manager?
3.What are the advantages of it? What are the disadvantages?
4.How does it fit with the other roles of a manager and leader?
5.Would this be an effective tool in a healthcare setting? Why or why not?
Be sure to conduct additional research to gather sufficient information to familiarize yourself with the facts of the case and be sure to justify/support your position.
Limit your responses to a maximum of three pages.
Please support your discussions with scholarly support (3-5 references). Be sure to properly cite all references.
Apply critical thinking skills the the assignment component.
I will grade your paper on your ability to address the assignment criteria listed above with depth and breadth of discussion. I will also critique your writing format (i.e. proper reference citations, spacing, etc.).
Your case paper will be further evaluated based on the following criteria:
Precision (Excellent; Good; Average; Poor)
•Each question and or assignment requirement is addressed in the paper
•Accuracy of your answers, key points and supporting discussion
Clarity (Excellent; Good; Average; Poor)
•The paper is well organized, concise, reads clearly, and it is not confusing.
Breadth (Excellent; Good; Average; Poor)
•The paper presents appropriate breadth covering the assignment questions/requirements
Depth (Excellent; Good; Average; Poor)
•Presents key points that lead to deeper matters and issues
•Integrates several points into coherent conclusions
Critical Thinking (Excellent; Good; Average; Poor)
•The paper demonstrates good understanding and synthesis of the module background material
•Logically incorporates key concepts presented in the background material into the overall analyses, key points and supporting discussions
•Presents well-reasoned conclusions and position as well as convincing arguments in support of the same
•Grammar (Excellent; Good; Average; Poor)
•Spelling (Excellent; Good; Average; Poor)
•Vocabulary (Excellent; Good; Average; Poor)
•Referencing (Excellent; Good; Average; Poor)
Additional considerations to keep in mind while working on your case assignments:
Originality and Use of directly quoted material
•The purpose of each assignment is for you to present your understanding and synthesis of the background material and key concepts. Accordingly, this must be accomplished substantially in your own words.
•Use directly quoted material sparingly and only when preserving the exact words of an author is necessary. For purposes of this course, rarely should directly quoted material represent more than 5-10 percent of your entire case paper’s content. Composing a paper patched together from mostly quoted material is not acceptable.
•Be sure to properly reference all directly quoted material and include the in-text citations. All paraphrased information also requires reference citations at the end of the paraphrased section.
•A paper that answers all assignments questions and supports the same with good key points, well supported discussions and quality references will earn a solid “B” grade.
•Please remember that “A” papers are exceptional works that go beyond just answering the questions and provide insightful answers.
