Question description

For this assignment, you will need to have completed the self-assessments required in the Check Your Understanding Activities. You will be analyzing and evaluating your own leadership development in multiple areas. The purpose of this project is to provide you the tools to create a self-awareness of your own strengths and weaknesses as a leader, as well as to help you improve overall in your leadership abilities. The portfolio project should use APA style guidelines, citing references as appropriate and you should reference all the used assessments.

It is essential that throughout the project you are using outside scholarly references, and you are analyzing, synthesizing, and evaluating the research on each of the topics listed in the project. Additionally, you should be synthesizing the information from the required course readings and the discussion postings to provide another perspective on the paper.

The paper should be a minimum of 10 double-spaced pages. You will need to address each of the following as they relate to your leadership development. Each question is worth equal value. Reference the Portfolio Project rubric as you complete your project.

  1. Please provide a background of yourself, including where you live, what you do for a living, and your previous leadership experience – either formal or informal. This will provide a good foundation for the rest of the project. ( I came form Software Engineering background and I am an experienced Project Manager, Currently, I am working on a consulting company as a senior project management consultant, I used to manage several teams internally and virtual teams and if you need any further details about me, I can answer you directly )
  2. Self-Confidence is a large portion of developing as a leader. Where are you currently in regard to self-confidence based on the self-assessments? What does this mean for you as a leader? What steps can you take to improve your self-confidence score?
  3. Leadership traits, skills and styles are all relevant in leaders today. Where are you currently in regard to traits, skills and styles as they relate to leadership based on the self-assessments? What does this mean for you as a leader? What steps can you take to improve these scores to become a more effective leader?
  4. Some approaches to leadership include situational, Path-Goal, and Leader Member Exchange. Where are you currently in regard to these three approaches based on the self-assessments? What does this mean for you as a leader? What steps can you take to improve upon these areas?
  5. Other approaches to leadership include Team Leadership, Collaborative Leadership, Participatory Leadership and Transformational Leadership. Where are you currently in regard to these approaches based on the self-assessments? What does this mean for you as a leader? What steps can you take to improve upon these areas?
  6. It is important to understand what type of leader you are. In regard to gender, the Gender-Leader Implicit Association Test and Masculinity-Femininity Self-Assessments can provide further insight into your leadership styles. Where are you in regard to these assessments? What does this mean for you as a leader? What steps can you take to improve in these areas?
  7. Culture plays an important role in leadership today. The Culture Questionnaire and the Individualism-Collectivism Self-Assessments can provide insight into the dimension of culture and leadership. Where are you currently in regard to cultural aspects of leadership? What does this mean for you as a leader? What steps can you take to improve in these areas?
  8. Integrity and Trust are essential to successful leadership. Where are you currently in regard to trust and integrity as shown in the self-assessments? What does this mean for you as a leader? What steps can you take to improve in these areas?
  9. How do you compare your current leadership based on the previous assessments to where you want to be as a leader? Are you close to where you want to be? Are you better off than you thought? Would other people agree with your self-assessments, or do you think that answers would be different if they came from your coworkers, superiors, or subordinates? How would they differ?
  10. How do you feel you compare in your current leadership as compared to your best examples of great leadership? This could be people at work, people in your personal life, etc. What qualities do you have that they don’t? What qualities do they have that you don’t? How do you achieve that level of leadership?
