OL 125 Personal Leadership Reflection Template This template can be customized to your own liking, but all sections are required in order for you to receive scores on the critical elements of your Final Project (Personal Leadership Reflection) Rubric. If you wish to use a modified template, please have your instructor approve an early draft. Name: Elaine Martin Student ID: 1547347 Program(s) of Study (Major): BS Operations Management Anticipated Graduation Date: 09/22 SECTION I - Personality and Self-Concept Discuss your personality strengths and areas of improvement to consider. Use your Milestone Two: SWOT Analysis assignment from Module Four to assist you with this section. Make sure you are considering the feedback you received from your instructor and any additional feedback from your peers and be sure to clean up any written errors in the submission. There are many strengths that I have in regard to my personal development and how I communicate to the people that I work with. I am very much an introvert, so I enjoy being on the outskirts of different groups and observing. I also feel a lot for those around me, and I often try to do something to help when I can, or I try to pass on that there is help needed to someone who could be more help than I would be able to give. Because I am an introvert who pays attention to what is going on around me, as well as someone who is sympathetic to others, I can often tell when those nearest to me are feeling sad and need space or need a hug or some other form of comfort. Being able to help and give someone the comfort they need is important for a leader because it shows your associates that you care and want them to be better. One of the ways that I could be better would be to be more of an active listener. I know that sometimes when someone is talking to me, I think about what I want to say next instead of hearing what they are saying to me and comprehending their emotions. I can also be somewhat of a perfectionist, so being able to let go of things that aren't perfect or being able to stop focusing on making one small thing perfect is another place where I could make some improvements. SECTION II - Human Interaction Skills Discuss management skills involved in the engagement and motivation of personnel, and consider the intended impacts on workplace productivity. Reflect back to assignments and resources you reviewed throughout the course to assist you with this section. Make sure you are considering the feedback you received from your instructor and any additional feedback from your peers, and clean up any written errors in the submission. Management skills are important in the workplace if you want to become a leader, and even if you don't. being able to manage the personalities of those around you into a cohesive group of people who can get along well enough to not fight and be able to get work done is a hard balancing act. Picking the right people for the right jobs is important and being able to encourage them when they are not having good days or weeks is something that can get tough the longer you know people. Sometimes being friends/friendly with those who work under you isn't always the best because they may not want to follow your directions. I have only led different groups of people in loud restaurants or warehouses, never in a quiet office setting, so the things that worked for me before might not work in other
settings, as in office buildings you usually must be more subdued and quieter. In places like the warehouse where I worked, having some fun on the floor like dancing or goofing around for a few minutes with my coworkers helped boost their moods and made the fact that they must stand and walk around for 8 hours a day more bearable. Dancing or goofing around likely wouldn't boost the morale of a team in an office building as it is loud and would probably be distracting to everyone around. SECTION III - Personal Development Plan For this final section, consider all of the coursework and feedback you received that allowed you to craft sections I and II above. Focus on your personality, self- concept, and human interaction skills you have mentioned to help you form your personal leadership philosophy . My leadership philosophy would be that where I manage a small group of people, who are cognizant of my authority, but are not resentful of it because I have earned it. I wouldn't like to be on a team where someone is given a leadership position because they are friends with the hiring personnel, and I wouldn't want any of my employees thinking that of me. I would want my employees to have fun while working for me, but also know that work needs to be completed in a timely manner. I want to be approachable, and as someone who will listen when a caring ear is needed. I want to have the knowledge base to answer any and all questions or know what needs to be looked for so that a question can get answered. Lastly, use the provided section below to identify three relevant goals to enhance your skills as a leader. Answer the following questions for each of your goals: What are action steps I can take to achieve this goal, what are potential obstacles I may face, and what is my plan to overcome these obstacles? Goal #1: be a leader on my team that people like and can trust What are action steps I can take to achieve this goal? Learn more in my current position, be someone that can be trusted with their work What are potential obstacles I may face when working toward achieving this goal? Being the newest and youngest member of the team, I currently have the lowest knowledge base regarding the job, and the least amount of time with the company, so overcoming both of those obstacles are going to take time. What is my plan to overcome these potential obstacles? I am going to keep asking questions to grow my knowledge base, as well as ask to train in other areas of the team so that I can better get to know the job as well as my coworkers. Goal #2: become a permanent member of my team What are action steps I can take to achieve this goal? Try and learn a lot about the different positions and gain more knowledge about the different programs and procedures of what the job entails. By knowing more about the team and the different jobs I can more easily move around in the team hierarchy. What are potential obstacles I may face when working toward achieving this goal? I'm currently only in the position as a seasonal worker, so if I don't do well they could just send me back to my old department. What is my plan to overcome these potential obstacles? I plan to work hard to show these employers that I want to continue to be on the team and learn more about each side of the operation so that I am more valuable. Goal #3: make improvements to the different procedures/streamline processes to improve efficiency
What are action steps I can take to achieve this goal? I can investigate the different aspects of my job that take time, and investigate the different features of the programs that we use and see if there are faster ways to compete tasks What are potential obstacles I may face when working toward achieving this goal? Getting my superiors on board might be tough as it might take longer to analyze new ideas than it does to complete the task currently What is my plan to overcome these potential obstacles? Potentially I could do it when I have some downtime at work, when it is not as busy, and I have completed all necessary items for the time being.
