Comments[edit source]

Hello, this will similarly look to my chapter in 2020 Leadership and Morale: How does leadership affect morale? (https://en.wikiversity.org/wiki/Motivation_and_emotion/Book/2020/Leadership_and_morale). Interested to see it from the military perspective. If you want, you can also contact me if you want to ask any questions. U3187226 (discusscontribs) 11:32, 17 August 2021 (UTC)

Heading casing[edit source]

Crystal Clear app ktip.svg
Hi U3186267. FYI, the recommended Wikiversity heading style uses sentence casing. For example:

Self-determination theory rather than Self-Determination Theory

Here's an example chapter with correct heading casing: Growth mindset development

Suggestion[edit source]

Hi U3186267, I've found the topic you've chosen keenly interesting since I am undertaking a similar unit for my degree called 'political leadership'. Topics such as participative leadership, leadership grid styles, and entrepreneurial leadership are fairly interesting in regards to your topic. All the best and I look forward to see what you find. --Robert.E.House (discusscontribs) 06:21, 29 August 2021 (UTC)

Title[edit source]

  1. The title is correctly worded and formatted
  2. The sub-title is correctly worded and formatted

User page[edit source]

  1. Created
  2. Description about self provided
  3. Consider linking to your eportfolio page and/or any other professional online profile or resume such as LinkedIn. This is not required, but it can be useful to interlink your professional networks.
  4. Link provided to book chapter

Social contribution[edit source]

  1. Excellent - summarised with direct link(s) to evidence
  2. Note re this edit that APA 7th edition style uses FirstAuthor et al. from first citation onwards.

Headings[edit source]

  1. Well developed 2-level heading structure, with meaningful headings that directly relate to the core topic
  2. The main challenge is to concentrate the bulk of the chapter on directly addressing the question: "How does leadership affect morale?". It makes sense to briefly explain the separate concepts of "leadership" and "morale" but the task is to focus on bringing these concepts together through review and integration of psychological theory and research.
  3. Possibly it could make sense to describe the desired outcome (morale) and then how to get there (via leadership).
  4. Currently, the most important section is "The relationship between leadership and morale" - look to develop and expand this section.

Key points[edit source]

  1. Key points are well developed for most sections, with relevant citations
  2. Avoid providing too much background information. Briefly summarise general concepts and provide internal wiki links to other book chapters and/or Wikipedia pages for further information. Then focus most of the content of this chapter on directly answering the core question(s) posed by the chapter sub-title.
  3. For sections which include sub-section include key points for an overview paragraph prior to branching into the sub-headings
  4. Overview - Consider adding:
    1. a description of the problem
    2. an image
    3. an example or case study
  5. There seems to be reasonably good coverage of theory; strive to balance with review of relevant research
  6. Some use of in-text interwiki links for the first mention of key terms to relevant Wikipedia articles and/or to other relevant book chapters
  7. Consider including more examples/case studies
  8. Conclusion (the most important section):
    1. somewhat developed
    2. what might the take-home, practical messages be?
    3. in a nutshell, what are the answer(s) to the question(s) in the sub-title?

Figure[edit source]

  1. Excellent
  2. Caption uses APA style
  3. Cite each figure at least once in the main text
