(2016) Leadership: Theory & Practice (7e). ) Print ISBN: 9781483317533, MGT416 Leadership Self-Assessment and Development Paper Instructions Purpose The purpose of this paper is to encourage your reflection on the course material and its application to your life and development as a leader. Therefore, in each of your self-assessment and development paper you should integrate course concepts and theories and provide sample citations from the textbook. This should be written in essay format similar to how a research paper would look like. By completing this assignment, you will be able to assess yourself on four different leadership topics, understand your strengths and weaknesses as a leader and help you function more effectively in leadership positions. Task Each leadership topic covered in this class comes with a leadership instrument (an assessment questionnaire). They can be found in the required textbook. You are required to complete the following four questionnaires and write a self-assessment and development paper for each questionnaire. Ch. 2: Leadership Trait Questionnaire (p. 37) Ch. 4: Leadership Behavior Questionnaire (p. 87) Ch. 6: PathGoal Leadership Questionnaire (p. 132) Ch. 8: Multifactor Leadership Questionnaire (p.187) For each topic, fill out the assessment questionnaire to your best knowledge. Note that there are no right or wrong answers. Faking has no benefits, as it may lead to distorted views and thus prevent you from gaining true insights about yourself. You are not required to duplicate or copy each survey. Your paper for each topic should, at the minimal, address the following. (a) summarize the leadership theory related to the given instrument. One should gain a concise, yet comprehensive understanding of the said leadership theory, including its pros and cons after reading your summary; (b) recall and document a real-life encounter (i.e., personal experience or observation of others in organizations) related to the said instrument; (c) interpret the scores you received from the questionnaire and based on your interpretation of these scores explain what you learnt about your strengths and weaknesses as a leader; and (d) lay out how you plan to address your weaknesses or further improve yourself as a leader. Your plan should state both what aspects of leadership you wish to improve and where you will practice these new leadership skills and to what ends. Your paper for each leadership topic should be no more than two pages (typed, single-spaced). You are required to use the template posted on the Blackboard in compiling your papers. Criteria: For the self-assessment and development paper, you will be graded based on (a) how well you summarize the leadership theory, (b) how well you apply the leadership theory in your own real-life experience, and (c) how well you recognize your strengths and weaknesses and how well-defined your plan is to further develop your leadership skills. This is an individual paper. Each student should work independently. Please submit the final paper (containing four self-assessment and development papers) on the Blackboard on the due date listed on the course schedule section of this syllabus. No late submission will be accepted. No email submission will be accepted.
