List three most accurate assessment result areas and briefly describe each why each one appears to be accurate.
I scored 90 out of 108 in the assessment for the section “How good am I at building and leading a team?” This put me in the second quartile as the top quartile starts at 95. The assessment is based on the following criteria: (1) ability of team development, (2) ability to manage the forming stage, (3) ability to manage the conforming stage, (4) ability to manage the storming stage, (5) ability to manage the performing stage. My scores are:
- In ability of team development – 10 out of 12;
- In ability to manage the forming stage – 16 out of 18;
- In ability to manage the conforming stage – 23 of 30;
- In ability to manage the storming stage – 23 of 30;
- In ability to manage the performing stage – 16 of 18.
In building a team, forming and conforming stages play a vital role. I achieved 77 % and 88 % respectively in these categories. I also scored 88 % in performing stage. High scores in forming, conforming, and performing categories define a leadership personality
I scored 123 out of 168 for “Am I a Type A” personality. According to the interpretation, people with scores 120 or higher are A+ type personality. Individuals with A + type personality are impatient and are in a rush striving to do a lot of things at a time. These are some of the characteristics that describe me. I agree that my A+ type personality may result in some stress but am well placed to handle such pressure.
It is necessary to identify the characteristic of a leader’s type personality. The assessment for “What’s My Leadership Style” ranks me as “people oriented,” with the score 8. This is a right for the leader’s personality. Although tasks are essential, it should not be used to sacrificing other people. The assessment says, when employees are experienced and understand their jobs well, they tend to perform best with a people oriented leader
List the three least accurate assessment result areas and briefly describe each why one appears to not fit or describe you
The assessment “Am I a deliberate decision maker?” does not fit me. I scored 21 out of 35. Assessment interprets score 28 and higher attributes to deliberate personalities. The score 14 – 27 defines blend mixture personality. I believe that I do not have a blend type mixture personality. This is because I always have the stand in whatever I believe in. An individual with high self-awareness and management personality tends not to have a split personality.
In the assessment of my leadership style, I scored 2 for concern for the task. The score above 10 is considered high and 2 is low. My score is low for a person with A + personality, and with second top quartile personality in building and leading a team. That is my score of 2 is a little bit low and hence does not fit me.
Based on your results, how would you describe two of your greatest strengths? Explain how you demonstrate those strengths in school or work
Based on the results, two of my greater strengths are: (1) “How good am I at building and leading a team?”, and (2) “What is my preferred conflict handling style”. I am second quartile personality in building and leading a team, hence an accommodating personality, I scored 18 out of 20 in conflict handling. As a leader, I try to build a team and lead for the best of the company. Conflict is evident when one is building a team and leading a team. Handling conflict is important for a leader for the sake of the team. I handle it using my accommodating personality as I can accommodate different views from different people.
Identify what changes you should or could make that might require you to be uncomfortable or act outside your preferences
According to the assessment, I am A + type person scoring 123. I need to reduce this number to 100 and become A- personality. I need to reduce scores in areas; (1) where I am always in hurry, (2) Trying to multitask, (3) being too fast in important duties (eating, walking, etc.). It will be difficult and uncomfortable for me reduce habits that I have grown with for years. However, I have to save myself from a heart attack, as A+ personality points it.
What specific behavior(s) will you change to make this a stronger area for you?
I scored 21 in assessment for “Am I a deliberate decision maker?”. Individuals with scores 28 or above have A type personality. I need to change my personality concerning the following behaviors; (1) Category “I make rush decision” from somewhat to very little extent, (2) Category “I have a negative perception sometimes need to focus on the positives instead” from somewhat to very little extent, (3) Category “I need to be more focused and not lose my focus more easily” from somewhat to a very little, (4) Category “I rush into things” from somewhat to a very little extent.
What are potential consequences, both positive and negative to making those changes?
I believe that there are no negative consequences but only positive consequences. I will improve my focus to whatever I am doing, make solid decisions not based on emotions, and take my time before rushing into things.
Do your results confirm your career aspirations or are they odds with you? Please describe your career and then explain whether the results you received support your aspirations.
My career aspirations are to find a challenging and a stimulating position that will build on my educational skills and knowledge, as well as professional experience. According to this assessment, I am a second quartile personality in building and leading a team. I know I will achieve my aspirations as I love challenges and be the able leader I am.
Write a short overall summary of your experience with these assessments
Generally, these are fair assessment instruments on our personality. It made critically think about different areas of my character. The questionnaires are tailored well to illustrate the quality of a person per described category. However, the assessment test procedure for “What’s my leadership style” is made unnecessary complex and does not make sense.
