This is a statement of your observations, learning, and strategy, but you need to include your responses to the following. Remember to craft this work as a scholarly, coherent document, not just a series of answers to the following questions. Take the reader on a journey using the following as milestones in the roadmap:
I. THE ISSUE (about one page)
a. What’s the problem/issue in human interactions that brings the topic of personality preferences and leadership strategy to the forefront of our conversation? Identify the issue as you see it, and spend about a page describing this.
II. THE THINKING AROUND THE ISSUE (about 9-11 pages)
a. Keirsey: Given your statement of the issue, what did Keirsey have to say about it? Here you want to include as many of the Keirsey ideas as you can. (From Please Understand Me II by David Keirsey)
b. What do you think about what Keirsey said?
c. Cloud: What did Henry Cloud say about the issue? (from Boundaries for Leaders by Henry Cloud) Frame the ideas you choose to include in your paper in the context of the Issue you identified in I, above.
d. What do you think about what Henry Cloud said?
e. Contemporary Issues: What evidence or examples do you find in contemporary issues that demonstrate the reality of the issue? Include one or two of your favorites.
f. Work Scenarios: Describe the influence of the Issue at work, if you are employed. How are leaders around you impacting the Issue?
III. YOUR THINKING AROUND THE ISSUE (about 1-2 pages)
a. Given this body of knowledge above and your observations of it, what set of 10 to 12 “I will…” statements could you articulate as your personal strategy to bring a high sense of collaboration to any team you lead or are a part? What will you do to be a great leader, aware of THE ISSUE? Include the full statement: Here is an example: “Because the conscious human brain needs to be able to focus one thing at a time, I will create clarity for my teams by providing articulate images of their priorities and offering continual reminders about what that looks like as they work.” These set of 10-12 statements should be set apart as a set and end your paper. This is your personal leadership approach.
