Your task this week is to reflect on your personal leadership potential. To prepare for this discussion, begin by taking one of the following free online quizzes (they’re designed to give you a baseline idea of your leadership characteristics). Or, you may want to seek out other leadership assessments listed in this week’s resources.

After completing your self-assessment, prepare a paper on your leadership style. In your paper, address the following questions:

  • What do your results from the assessment say about you as a leader?
  • How accurately do you think they portray you? What new insights have you learned about yourself? What results do you think are inaccurate?
  • Consider the leadership assessments discussed this week, which ones do you feel would be most beneficial to participate in? Why?
  • How would you like to increase your leadership ability?
  • How could you apply the principles of one of the leadership theories discussed in the course to increase your leadership ability?
  • What role, if any, do you feel your gender plays in your leadership style?
  • What steps can you take to ensure you lead in an ethical manner?
