New York, NY: Gallup Press. “Part Three: Understanding Why People Follow.” “Conclusion.” Assessment Instructions For this assessment, consider that you recently applied, and were selected, for a promotion to an executive level position in your organization. The organization’s HR department conducts management training sessions periodically as needed for employees recently promoted into senior manager or executive level positions. The organization’s HR team places a high value on leadership skills and emphasizes that as part of the management training sessions. You and other new senior managers are scheduled to attend one of those training sessions. In preparation, each attendee was asked to analyze and write a short paper about leadership styles and characteristics of effective leaders. During the management training session, the papers written by participants will be distributed and reviewed. Preparation To complete this assessment: Review the Leadership Styles and Characteristics multimedia piece linked in the Resources. Select a leader you admire from a for-profit or nonprofit organization you know well. This should be an organization you have a positive perception of, such as an organization for which you might someday aspire to be a leader. Examine and reflect on your chosen leader’s leadership styles and characteristics as defined in the multimedia piece. Requirements Analyze the leadership styles and characteristics of effective leaders. In your analysis, address the following: Briefly describe the organization of the leader you selected and the type of products or service it provides. You should briefly include additional key organizational information, such as size, years in operation, location, and reputation. Evaluate the leadership styles and characteristics of the leader whom you admire. In your evaluation, explain how these leadership styles and characteristics can determine effective leadership. Compare and evaluate your own leadership styles and characteristics to those of the leader you admire, and identify what is necessary for effective leadership. Evaluate how environmental and societal factors such as politics and innovation might influence your approach to leadership at this organization. How might these and other factors affect the way you lead? Would there be differences in your leadership style if this were a different type of organization? Evaluate how economic conditions might influence your leadership style. Would your leadership style change during the time of a strong economy? Would your leadership style change during the time of a declining economy? Would your leadership style change if you were leading an organization through different maturation phases (including start-up, growth, and establishment)? Given the intended audience for your paper, it should be well organized and written in clear, succinct language. It should be approximately 3–5 pages in length. Follow APA rules for attributing sources that support your analysis and conclusions. Academic Integrity and APA Formatting As a reminder related to using APA rules to ensure academic honesty: When using a direct quote (using exact or nearly exact wording), you must enclose the quoted wording in quotation marks, immediately followed by an in-text citation. The source must then be listed in your references page. When paraphrasing (using your own words to describe a non-original idea), the paraphrased idea must be immediately followed by an in-text citation and the source must be listed in your references page. Example Assessment: You may use the assessment example, linked in the Assessment Example section of the Resources, to give you an idea of what a Proficient or higher rating on the scoring guide would look like.

Effective leaders are those who can scan the environment, who are willing to receive feedback from others about their own performance, and who are willing to try new things; hence the emphasis on integration with self-discovery and ongoing learning. By successfully completing this assessment, you will demonstrate your proficiency in the following course competencies and assessment criteria: Competency 1: Evaluate the purpose and relevance of leadership. Describe leadership style or characteristics as represented by individual strengths. Explain how leadership style or characteristics can be used to overcome perceived individual weaknesses. Explain how leadership style or characteristics can be used to explore opportunities. Analyze how leadership style or characteristics can be used to overcome threats. Competency 2: Evaluate how leadership strengths apply in the workplace and within the community.

You are encouraged to consider the questions below and discuss them with a fellow learner, a work associate, an interested friend, or a member of your professional community. Note that these questions are for your own development and exploration and do not need to be completed or submitted as part of your assessment. Bill Gates said, “As we look ahead into the next century, leaders will be those who empower others” (Sources of Insight, 2011). What does that mean? How might it influence the way you view leadership power and authority? How do effective leaders empower and support those around them? Reference Sources of Insight. (2011, January 19).

Strengths based leadership: Great leaders, teams, and why people follow. New York, NY: Gallup Press. “Leading With Your Strengths: A Guide to the 34 Themes in Strengths Based Leadership.” Assessment Instructions For this assessment, consider you were recently promoted to an executive level position in your organization. The organization has a highly regarded management training and development program led by its human resources department. As part of that, the HR team works individually with each new executive to create a customized development plan. One component of that is that the HR team asks each new executive to create a personal SWOT analysis. New executives are typically familiar with a SWOT analysis (analyzing strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats) from their past educational and professional experience, but typically think of that tool as applied to an organization rather than applied personally. Preparation You too are probably already familiar with the business practice of conducting a SWOT analysis, but you are encouraged to conduct independent research on this term as necessary. Complete an abbreviated version of a SWOT analysis on your own strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats. Use the criteria below as a guide for your analysis. You will use your SWOT analysis results to complete this assessment. Strengths Briefly identify and describe your top five strengths. When you think about your areas of strength, be sure to consider: Advantages (skills, education, experience) you have that others do not. The achievements you are most proud of. Things you do better than anyone else. Special connections you may have. Resources that are available to you. Be sure to consider how others see you as well as how you see yourself. Weaknesses Briefly identify and describe three areas of weakness. Some things to consider might be: Tasks you avoid doing because you do not feel confident doing them. Negative work habits, such as often being late, disorganized, or easily stressed. Your level of confidence in your skills, education, or experience. Personality traits that might hold you back. For example, do you have a fear of public speaking, yet work where you are expected to conduct meetings regularly? Just as with your strengths, be sure to consider how others see you. Opportunities Briefly identify and describe at least two opportunities for growth. It may help you to think about: Do you have a network of influential contacts? Is there a need in your company or industry that no one has been able to fill? Are there trends in your company that you could use to your advantage? Can you offer solutions to problems within your company? Threats Briefly identify and describe at least two threats you are facing. These may be in the form of: Obstacles you are facing at work. Competition for positions or projects. A major change in the nature of your job. Requirements Determine how the results of your SWOT analysis might be used in both a workplace setting and in the community and complete an analysis paper describing that. Be sure to address the following: Analyze the leadership style or characteristics you see reflected in your strengths. Analyze how you can apply the leadership style or characteristics to overcome perceived weaknesses. Analyze how you can use the leadership style or characteristics to explore opportunities. Analyze how you can use the leadership style or characteristics to overcome threats and provide specific strategies to accomplish that. Evaluate the relationship between individual strengths, leadership style or characteristics, and workplace setting. As part of that, associate the leadership style or characteristics represented in your strengths with the type of work you believe would best support them. Analyze how well your current career fits your leadership style. Additional Requirements Include your SWOT analysis as an appendix. Note: The SWOT analysis will not be graded directly. Given the intended audience for your SWOT and overall leadership analysis, it should be well organized and written in clear, succinct language. It should be approximately 3–5 pages in length. Follow APA rules for attributing sources that support your analysis and conclusions.

In your analysis, address specific ways the leader demonstrates effective leadership. Effective leaders realize that employees should be recognized for a job well done. While some people prefer public praise and others prefer personal recognition, most employees want to be recognized in some way. Kouzes and Posner (2017) state that effective leaders begin their leadership development by first learning to lead themselves. Effective leadership begins from within and expands outward to affect others. This development cascades into effective leadership. By successfully completing this assessment, you will demonstrate your proficiency in the following course competencies and assessment criteria: Competency 1: Evaluate the purpose and relevance of leadership. Analyze how a leader reflects the definition of leadership. Evaluate leadership style, characteristics, or themes in relation to the purpose and relevance of effective leadership. Competency 2: Evaluate how leadership strengths apply in the workplace and within the community. Analyze how a leader models leadership. Analyze how a leader inspires a shared vision. Analyze how a leader looks for new opportunities that may require experimentation or taking risks. Analyze how a leader empowers and recognizes the contributions of others. Reference Kouzes, J.

Chapter 13, “Leadership Is Everyone’s Business.” Toggle Drawer Assessment Instructions Preparation Throughout your career, you could undoubtedly benefit from analyzing leadership and management characteristics of other leaders and managers you consider effective and successful. This assessment provides an opportunity and framework to do that in the context of effective leadership. To complete this assessment, you have two options. You may choose to base your assessment on a leader you know personally or on a leader who is well-known. Be sure to read the complete instructions for both options carefully before making a decision. Instructions Option A: Interview a Leader You Know Personally Identify someone you know who is currently serving in a leadership capacity at an organization. You may choose a leader affiliated with your employer, a community leader, a political or church leader, or anyone whose leadership skills you admire. Arrange an interview with your selected leader to learn about his or her view of leadership. Structure the interview around the concepts of leadership as you have come to understand them from your own research or the recommended readings. Some suggested interview questions are: What is your definition of leadership? How do you model leadership? How do you inspire a shared vision in those around you? How do you look for new opportunities that may require experimenting or taking risks? How do you enable or empower others to act? How do you recognize the contributions made by others? In what ways do you get personally involved? What challenges and opportunities do you face? Conduct the interview and then use the interview results to complete this assessment as instructed in the Requirements below. Option B: Research a Well-Known Leader It may be difficult for you to gain access to interview an available leader. If so, you may opt to research a well-known historical figure or contemporary leader whom you believe embodies great leadership. You may choose a business leader, political leader, author, scientist, sports personality, or any public figure about whom there is enough information publicly available for you to fulfill the requirements of this assessment. Refer to the Option B Leaders List (linked in the Resources) for potential subjects; you are not limited to this list. Focus your research on how the leader demonstrates exemplary leadership as identified below: What is the leader’s definition of leadership? How does the leader model leadership? How does the leader inspire a shared vision in those around him or her? How does the leader look for new opportunities that may require experimenting or taking risks? How does the leader enable or empower others to act? How does the leader recognize the contributions made by others? In what ways does the leader get personally involved? What challenges and opportunities does the leader face? Once you have completed your research, complete this assessment as instructed below. Requirements for Both Options In your assessment, address the following: Explain why you chose your selected leader. Provide background information on the environment and culture of the organization in which the leader provides leadership. Analyze how the leader models leadership. Analyze how the leader inspires a shared vision. Analyze how the leader looks for new opportunities that may require experimenting or taking risks. Analyze how the leader empowers and recognizes the contributions of others. Analyze how the leader reflects their definition of leadership. Evaluate the leadership style, characteristics, or themes of the leader in relation to the purpose and relevance of leadership. Draw justifiable conclusions about the effectiveness of the leader. Additional Requirements for Both Options Your analysis should be well organized and written in clear, succinct language. It should be approximately 4–6 pages in length. Follow APA rules for attributing sources that support your analysis and conclusions. Academic Integrity and APA Formatting As a reminder related to using APA rules to ensure academic honesty: When using a direct quote (using exact or nearly exact wording), you must enclose the quoted wording in quotation marks, immediately followed by an in-text citation.
