Assessment Task
Your task in Assessment 1, Part A, is to reflect on your current level of emotional intelligence by
completing the Genos Emotional Intelligence Report, analysing your results and preparing a brief
report on your results and their implications for your development as a leader or influencer of
people in your communities, social networks and workplaces.
Instructions for accessing the Genos Emotional Intelligence Report will be provided by
your Learning Facilitator
Please read the instructions carefully and respond to the questions as honestly as possible, so
that you get a meaningful set of results.
Analysing results
When you receive your results, look at your report, read the background material in the
Module 1.2 Resources section and on the Genos website. You should then prepare a 1,000-
word report which covers the following issues:
1) A brief discussion of the theoretical foundation of Emotional Intelligence and its
relevance to effective leadership;

SubjectCode_Assessment_#_Brief_AssesmentType_Module Due# Page 2 of 4
2) Your initial reactions to your results: provide at least two examples of where have you
experienced your level of emotional intelligence assisting or limiting your capacity to
influence other people;
3) Your initial thoughts on how you can continue to develop your level of emotional
intelligence to enhance the effectiveness of your personal and workplace
relationships.
Do not include your results in the body of your report. You will need to submit a copy of your report
with your submission.
Please note that it is quite difficult to cover these three points in 1,000 words – pre-plan what you
intend to say and revise your work repeatedly to increase the impact of your writing. Avoid
unnecessary discussion and ensure every sentence contributes positively to the discussion and is
aligned with the requirements of the assessment brief.
Reflexive Writing – First Person
You should write in the first person, because this is about YOU, your reflections and your
interpretations. (e.g. “I considered this result to be….. because it had a big impact on my…
….. and it
helped me to understand my…
……. ”)
Try to be as specific as possible, use brief examples to illustrate your points and try to select
examples that enable you to demonstrate learning against the attributes in the rubric.
All other principles of academic writing apply, including strict referencing, acknowledgement of the
work of others and avoidance of plagiarism.
A brief guide to Reflective Writing is available at:
Torrens University Australia Academic Skills. (03.11.2021).
