Developing your Leadership Style
The purpose of this unit is to support your leadership development and encourage you to undertake reflection on your own leadership style and behaviours in order to improve own and organisational performance.
Please watch the videos and presentation and complete the associated activities. There will be sign-posting within the presentation to a range of optional resources to facilitate your thinking around the topics presented, but you are also encouraged to undertake independent research.
This unit is all about YOU. To get the most out of this unit, it is essential that you undertake honest reflection and high level thinking in order to identify your leadership development needs.
Understanding myself as a leader
It is now time to really focus on YOU.
The activities included will allow you to better understand your preferential leadership behaviours and approaches through personality profiling and leadership diagnostics.
Can you identify your prevalent leadership style and the effect this has on your team? How could you develop this style?
You can then consolidate the reflection undertaken and create a plan to develop yourself as a leader.
Remember, this is YOUR plan and the developmental activities should be drawn from your own interpretation of the previous activities. Actions should be achievable and realistic following the SMART acronym.
