Strengths Analysis & Leadership Profile: Mixed Methods Approach –

Required Book: Northouse, P. G. (2015). Introduction to leadership: Concepts and practice (3rd ed.). Los Angeles, CA: Sage.

This assignment is based on the mixed method approach to gather data about you as a leader: quantitative (surveys) and qualitative (interviews).
Part One (quantitative): Throughout this course you will develop your personal Leadership Profile and determine your strengths and areas to improve. Embedded within each chapter has been a series of questionnaires, surveys, and inventories that have helped you understand your current leadership qualities. In addition, you have received an individual report with each of these tools. This portion of the assignment provides an opportunity to reflect on what you have learned about yourself through both a retrospective and future lens. You will also link this learning to the literature on best practices in leadership through the use of ten scholarly publications from the e-book links or other scholarly resources.
For this portion of the assignment, you must write in first person, especially with your survey results. Your task is to research and address the following areas:
1. Explain who you are as a leader and include at least one example of how you
demonstrate your leadership style;
2. For each of the Leadership Profile instruments discuss and analyze your scores, the feedback report findings. Include data as applicable (use APA Level 3 headings). Select two instruments from each module (2×4=8), which will total “eight instruments.” Please analyze the reports, not just report the scores.

Module 1 = Chapters 1, 7, & 8

Module 2 = Chapters 9, 10, & 11 Module 3 = Chapters 2, 3, 4, & 5 Module 4 = Chapters 6 & 12
Part Two (qualitative): For this portion of the assignment you will interview three people you know who could answer questions about your strengths as an individual. You may want to tape your interviews, but not required. Of these three people you select to interview, they should be from the following categories: friends, coworkers, colleagues, or family members. You must only have one person from each category, not three from each category (i.e., one friend, one coworker, one family member). Ask each person to respond to the following prompts (Interview Protocol):
1. Please think about a time or situation when you saw me at my best.
2. Tell me a brief story about what I was doing.
3. Describe why you thought I performed well in this situation.
4. Based on what you have just told me, please describe what unique benefits I offered
other people who were involved in the situation.
Based on their answers, identify two or three recurring themes. These themes are your strengths; determine how they align with the analyzed reports from the surveys of Part 1. You must use proper APA format of personal communications, which you can find in your 6th edition APA manual on page 179. There are two formats of personal communication: parenthetical and non-parenthetical. In addition, personal communications are not recorded in the references page.
In this portion of your paper, you will discuss:
1. The people you chose to interview and why you selected them,
2. Your reaction to what others have identified as your strengths and how they align ?with the surveys,
3. How these strengths are consistent or different from your own perceptions of your ?strengths as analyzed from the surveys,
4. Your reaction to what you have learned and where you would like to improve; and
5. Discuss what you would like your leadership legacy to be and how you will attain it.
10 scholarly references to support your response.
You are to include your 3 personal communications in-text based on 6th edition APA format.
