Therefore, you are required to work together as a leadership team, as would happen in ahotel or hospitality environment.The suggested approach is for all group members to contribute to the overall submission rather thandivide it into individual sections, although each ‘department manager’ will be responsible for theirown department and be overseen by the general manager who has the final responsibility.Part B:All group members will be required to simulate a presentation of their report to their CEO and HotelExecutive Team. The presentation will take 20 minutes and can be captured on a PowerPointPresentation (maximum 5 slides). This presentation will take the form of an Introduction, Backgroundon the issue, the Leadership Actions to be undertaken and the Recommendations for implementation.This follows the format of the Written Report in Part A.This is a shared responsibility, and it is expected that each team member can demonstrate theircapabilities as leaders of their departments. Students should also be prepared for an additional 5-minute interactive Question & Answer session with the Executive Team. This simulated meeting willbe assessed on their ability to demonstrate confidence and aptitude in their understanding of thelearning outcomes of the unit.After your Presentation where each student will have spoken, you will be asked three questions. Eachstudent must take responsibility to answer these questions: What leadership skills did you utilize as you worked together as a team? What team skills did you learn as you prepared this assessment? What was the highlight of working together as a group?Task InstructionsIn small groups of up to 4 students, you are required to prepare a 2,500-word leadership plan toprovide leadership in a global hospitality situation.This is a simulation, therefore students are to assume the roles of the executive team of a hotel orhospitality enterprise of your choice (pending approval by your Learning Facilitator). Your group willconsist of department heads, chosen according to the situation you select, one of which must be aleader (general manager). As such, the leadership approaches must be considered from a multidepartment perspective.To prepare your leadership plan, you should identify one (1) crisis, ethical or issues-based situation ina hospitality environment, preferably a current or recent one (occurred in the past 5 years).
