How do I evaluate myself as a leader? I evaluate myself as a leader by my actions. I set certain goals, encourage myself I will meet all my goals and I work hard to reach all my goals.
How do others evaluate you as a leader? Others evaluate me as a leader by looking at my accomplishments and the struggles I had to go through to meet my accomplishments. For example: I’m the oldest sibling out of my mother four children. I’m the first daughter out of my mother children to go to college. My brother who is the youngest told me he looks up to me for going to school and not giving up. Now he will be graduating from high school May 19, 2019 from Evangel and will be attending college at Northwestern University majoring in Nursing.
What approaches could you use to evaluate the strengths and weaknesses of others? The approaches I will use to evaluate the strengths and weakness of others are: 1) I will always ask for feedback from the team about certain jobs and any changes, 2) I will pay attention to accomplishments on the job meaning there successful and failure which can be improved, 3) Make sure everyone is being effective and efficient while doing their jobs to ensure success, and 4) Mentor team performance to determine their strengths and weakness. The second approach I would use the Leadership Expectations: 1) Explicit- expressed outcomes that identifies responsibility, accountability, strategy and execution. 2) Implicit- unspoken expectations that identifies competence, listening, fair treatment, and inspiring. I believe either approach is useful to help identify other strengths and weakness.
One approach that could be used to evaluate a person’s strength and weaknesses would be to monitor their behavior during simple and difficult tasks that are assigned. I say this approach since its one that I used while serving in the military. Strength and weaknesses will most likely display itself when the person executes the set task at hand. Assigning a task to an individual and examining different methods that they use exhibits what areas they lack in, as well as excel in. This said method can help guide and direct a person to help build skills that are needed to create better cognitive thinking. Another method would be to use a program to track employee’s behaviors while they conduct their daily tasks. “Employee monitoring allows a business to track employee activities and monitor worker engagement with workplace related tasks.” (“What Is Employee Monitoring?”, 2019). A program as such could pin point key areas that an employee lacks in for better understanding of how to help assist the employee in improving.
What did you learn from the research on leadership?
What is your Leadership Quotient (LQ)?
Do you agree with your LQ? Why/why not?
I learned a lot in chapter two of the text about leadership if effective will help others to be more effective at their roles and helped to meet performance goals as a business (Anderson & Adams 2016). Leadership development should work hand in hand with leadership effectiveness in an organization. A leader has to be well rounded in how they approach issues and show that they are capable of motivating others to get jobs accomplished. The leader has to be innovative and effective at finding different ways to get the same job done perhaps in less time. A strong leader will actually care about how people and business are going to be doing something that will have a meaningful impact. It is important to care about the vision and mission statement of the organization so others will also follow the same path. It is a good leader that will be diverse and know that everyone comes from different backgrounds and beliefs and respect this. If a person learns something about each person each day, they show they care about the person that work for them ( Henley 2018). It can be so impacting to the people that work with you to know they bring value to the business and make a difference.

I would like to use the warehouse I worked at as a shift lead for example. My Leadership Quotient would most likely fall into 0.4 percentile. The warehouse operated at an 30% effectiveness, and 70% ineffectiveness due to how the upper management conducted business. It seems as the star workers were the ones getting tasked out for all the difficult portions of the job since the other half of the employees would rarely do their job. I as a shift lead would constantly be in the supervisor’s office. I was picking up most of the slack but would get reported as not being able to be found when help was needed since I was trying to make sure the slack was taking care of. “When you take on a leadership role, followers silently believe and expect that you will fulfill both my explicit and implicit expectations.” (Anderson & Adams, 2019, Chapter 1). The supervisor had little groups that she favored and would let get away with stuff that they shouldn’t be doing while others would get written up. Senior management avoided getting involved with work related issues when reported which created a toxic environment.
