Your task in Assessment 1, Part A, is to complete the Gallup Strengths Finder and submit a brief report on the results and their implications for your development as a leader.
Instructions for completing Gallup strength finder:
See further instructions under Assessment 1 brief in the LMS for detailed instructions to begin the test online. It is highly recommended to set aside 30 minutes of non- interrupted time to complete this test as the questions are set on a short timer to capture initial and instinctual responses.
When you receive your results, look at your report and read the background document on the Gallup psychometric assessment. You should then prepare a 500-word report which covers the following issues:
1) A brief description of your results. Provide a copy of your report as an Appendix. It will not be included in the word count.
2) Your initial reactions to your results: any surprises, any concerns, any connections with your own self-perceptions of your leadership strengths and personality preferences, any consistencies or inconsistencies with other feedback that you have received, either from colleagues or other psychometric tests.
3) Your initial thoughts on the implications of the results for your current and future leadership: how you can draw on your strengths to enhance your current and future effectiveness.
Reflexive Writing - First Person:
You should write in the first person, because this is about YOU, your reflections and your interpretations. (e.g. “I considered this advice to be….. because it had a big
impact on my……..and it helped me to understand my… ”)
Try to be as specific as possible, use brief examples to illustrate your points and try to select examples that enable you to demonstrate learning against the attributes in the rubric.
All other principles of academic writing apply, including strict referencing, acknowledgement of the work of others and avoidance of plagiarism.
