- How do you think others evaluate you as a leader?
According to Goetsch, & Davis, (2014) other people are able to evaluate leadership through seeing the team spirit, team work, interpersonal skills and the leadership styles used to lead a team. As such, leadership skills like constant communications, listening skills, inspiring the team and humility makes other people not to have issues with a leadership style. People evaluate me as a leader based on how much I have inspired my team to accomplish results. I am a soft spoken person, who is able and willing to take criticism positively, seek clarification even to junior staffers and team members, apologize when wrong and forge ahead without having grudges with other people. My integrity as a leader also makes people to most likely think high of me, and evaluate me well since I do things according to the required guidelines, and don’t make extreme punitive actions against my team.
- Discuss your impressions and Relevance to Organizations
My impressions are critical to how I deliver assigned tasks and how the team I lead would be motivated. Integrity is key, achieving desired goals, in a creative and visionary manner. Organizations can use such skills to better know what type of leader to recruit in their organizations. It is essential that before a person is recruited to a firm, the organization is able to tell, if the values of a person as at the time of job advertisement and recruitment meets the values of the organization. When a company is able to tell the impressions of a leader, such expectations from the leader can be meet before the arrival of the leader. In addition, the organization is able to mentor the person in line with their impressions and values. Such action will inspire and motivate the employees hence increasing the chances of employee motivation, productivity and subsequent retention.
