For the first paragraph of your initial post complete the following exercise and answer the question below.
Reflect on your leadership skills. Consider your strongest leadership skills and what skills you believe you are lacking or need improvement. Consider why you think so. Think about what feedback, if any, you have received from coworkers and supervisors regarding your leadership skills, if you agree with it, and why.
With the self-awareness you gained by doing the above exercise, what type of learning plan would you develop for yourself? (Include specific knowledge areas you would plan to pursue)
For the second paragraph of your post, select any one of the following bullet points and address all elements of your chosen bullet point. Select a different bullet point section than what your classmates have already posted so that we can engage several discussions on relevant topics. If all of the bullet points have been addressed, then you may begin to re-use the bullet points with the expectation that varied responses continue.
How does this list compare with your perceptions of a bad leader? Evaluate whether these traits are universal. How do these types of characteristics impact an organization? Are there any cultural or other implications of these traits? How do these traits connect to emotional intelligence?
Assess whether personal leadership is related to emotional intelligence. Can an individual possess one characteristic but not the other? Can a leader lacking the characteristics of personal leadership be effective using only emotional intelligence? Defend your perspectives.
What has been your leadership experience so far, related to work, school, community, church, volunteer work, or family? How would you assess your own leadership skills? How are you perceived as a leader by others? What is the evidence for your conclusion (about how you are perceived)? What are the leadership areas you would like to improve upon? Defend your perspectives.
The final paragraph (three or four sentences) of your initial post should summarize the one or two key points that you are making in your initial response.
Justify your answers using examples and reasoning. Comment on the postings of at least two peers.
Your posting should be the equivalent of 1 Page in length
