Upon completion of a variety of self – assessment instruments, you are encouraged to develop a deeper understanding of the importance of self-awareness in relation to

course affect you personally in your role as a manager and leader.
Learning Journal Requirements:

3. Share your results, insights and conclusions with someone you trust and respect. Ask them for their reactions and comments. Due date 5 September. Length 700 words

• What you learned about yourself.
• How your perceptions of yourself are similar and different from the perceptions of the person with whom you discussed your assessments.
• How your style could affect your relationship with others, particularly your work relationships. Consider its influence on how you see and relate to others, how
others react toward you, and implications for the kind of work you prefer.
• Given this information, what can you do to take advantage of your strengths and minimize your weaknesses as a manager/leader? What barriers and opportunities exist
for the implementation of your personal leadership plan in your student/professional life? Due date 12 September. Length 1200 words
Rationale
Management research indicates that developing self-awareness has several advantages: personal growth, career development, and an enhanced ability to understand and
have empathy with others. In their studies of managerial and executive derailment, the Center for Creative Leadership found that successful managers: (1) understand
their values, personal styles, and strengths and weaknesses; (2) know the impact of these values, styles, strengths and weaknesses, on their ability to effectively
work with others and achieve their goals; and (3) are quick to reflect upon and learn from their own experiences.
Despite these advantages, we often resist opportunities to increase our self-awareness. We try to protect our self-esteem. We fear that learning something new about
ourselves will be painful or may require us to change. We may think that we already know ourselves well enough. Or we may not want to take the time out of our busy
schedules to engage in self-reflection. In short, developing a willingness and ability to engage in self-reflection, is a critical leadership skill that is not easily
learned yet reaps many rewards.
Keeping a learning journal is a structured way to develop this skill. This journal is a confidential, written record of your personal development through the class.
The learning journal helps you to reflect on how your personal styles influence your interpersonal relationships, particularly in your role as a manager and leader.
The completed assignment should be about 3000 words in all and double spaced. Your learning journal is a confidential document. Only your course facilitator will read
it. You are required to identify your learning journal by your name and student number.
This self-assessment prepares you for the analysis of other leaders in Assessment 3.
The assessment assesses the last learning outcome in relation to leadership self-development:
be able to develop a leadership plan and implementation strategies.
