Leadership 360 Project Instructions Management I Research confirms what many have observed: self-awareness is a major driver of leadership effectiveness. People who understand how they are viewed by others are seen as better leaders, better colleagues, and better performers—and they receive more promotions and higher pay. The Leadership 360 report in this course provides students with feedback on how their perceptions of themselves line up with others’ perceptions of them. One of the primary assignments for MGMT 1 is to analyze this feedback and use it to come up with a plan for growth. This document describes the self-assessment project and provides supplementary guidance on how to complete the deliverables. The goals of the self-assessment project We intend for you to: Have a significant experience getting and using very specific feedback, to prepare for handling this process effectively in “the real world” Gather and analyze this feedback about your strengths and weaknesses in the service of building your self-awareness, which will in turn help you in many ways personally & professionally More deeply analyze and reflect on one weakness AND one strength that matters to you, applying statistical knowledge and analytical reasoning skills Create an action plan including specific goals targeted at developing either the weakness or the strength you talked about in depth Facilitate your ability to impress employers in future interviews when they ask you questions like “What’s your biggest strength/weakness?” or “What stands out as an experience from your Gabelli education that will stay with you after you graduate?” Continue to hone your written communication skills Deliverables There are two deliverables to complete after you get your Leadership 360 report. First you will turn in a “Part I” worksheet which prompts you to review the data in your report systematically. Most MGMT 1 professors will treat this as a pass/fail assignment and simply spot check a few questions. If you have detailed questions about your data after completing Part I, you should see your professor. Later in the term, (see your MGMT 1 syllabus for due dates), you will turn in a “Part II” worksheet which is the main deliverable and will be graded very carefully. This part involves taking what you documented in Part I of the project and determining what the data means for you at a deeper level. You will be asked to synthesize data and craft arguments about your strengths and weaknesses and what is really driving them (root cause analysis). You will also be asked to come up with a relevant action plan and reflect on some broader implications about what you’ve learned about yourself. Both worksheets should be turned in both via hard copy in class and via upload to your course webpage. With Part 1, in addition to your worksheet, you should upload a copy of your Leadership 360 report that you downloaded from Qualtrics.
