Part 1: Leadership Philosophy
You have been selected to take command of a unit with a mission similar to your current unit. One of the critical requirements of a leaders personal and professional growth is self-assessment.
Before you pen your leadership philosophy, take a personality assessment. 16 Personalities assessment is a predictive analysis of how people are likely to behave, but the designers are very careful to remind the user that the type descriptors are just indicators and tendencies, not definitive guidelines or answers. Once you complete the assessment, note and reflect on your type designations the assessment provided.________
16 Personalities assessment results:
Type: Assertive Commander
Code: ENTJ-A (Extravert (Mind), Intuitive (Energy), Thinking (Nature), Judging (Tactics), Assertive (Identity)
Strategy: People Mastery
Write your Leadership Philosophy based on the following scenario.
You are in a meeting with your Group Commander (or hiring authority) who asks the following:
- Tell me what your leadership philosophy is for this organization. I dont have a lot of time, so I need you to make it as concise as possible.
- How did you come to that philosophy, what traits and leadership characteristics do you think are important for a leader to possess, and how do those apply to your leadership philosophy and the success of your organization?
- How does your philosophy align with your 16 Personalities (MBTI) assessment?
- What leaders in your life influenced your leadership philosophy and style?
You must use theories, principles, and concepts from the Leadership and Command I course to support your responses.
Part 2: Interview Summary
Conduct a two-way interactive (in person, telephonic, Skype, etc.,) interview of a squadron commander (sister service commanders, CAP commanders are acceptable for the assignment) or civilian equivalent.
- Discuss their most challenging leadership/command issue and how they resolved it or how they have dealt with it if it was not resolved. (Note: The interviewee must have at least 12 months experience in a command equivalent position; retired officers are not acceptable, and any civilians must work for DoD).
- Discuss what influenced their decision-making process, what skills/competencies they used to resolve or address it, what best prepared them to deal with the situation, and the outcome
- Were there any decisions they would change? Did they take criticism (internal or external) for any of the decisions they made, and how has that influenced their professional development and/or their unit?
- Discuss what resources they used (peers, mentors, values, etc.) to make their decisions. Write a summary of the interview. Do not post any actual names or organizations.
Part 3: Interview Analysis
Write an analysis of the interviewees actions. Evaluate the situation based on your leadership philosophy. How would your philosophy influence your actions if you experienced the same challenge? Would you do things differently? Why or why not? This is another area of the essay where you should use theories, principles, and concepts from the Leadership and Command I course to support your position.
Evaluating the actions of another person is challenging, but valuable. You are expected to incorporate ideas, concepts, and facts presented by others as you develop your paper. You must appropriately cite quoted and paraphrased material. Failure to do so constitutes plagiarism, a serious breach of academic and professional standards that can bring serious professional repercussions per Air University plagiarism policy, as outlined in your Student Handbook.
