Leadership Philosophy Paper? As the BA in Leadership capstone course, the central activity is to articulate your synthesis of learning about leadership and yourself as a leader

  

Leadership Philosophy Paper 

As the BA in Leadership capstone course, the central activity is to articulate your synthesis of learning about leadership and yourself as a leader in the form of a personal philosophy of leadership paper. This paper is a theory that serves to explain and guide how you act, a set of beliefs/principles that ground you in how you will lead, and a set of commitments that drive your actions as a leader. 

Using course readings, material from forum discussions, and thoughts/ideas/concepts from your previous courses, reflect on the following questions:

1. Who are you? Describe your personality and the life scripts that shape your habits—your uniqueness as a human being. Specifically, tell your life story in terms of how you have prepared to take responsibility of leading yourself (Phase I) and any experiences you had leading others (Phase II). Also, use insights from your Birkman report to describe the general patterns of your personality.

2. What do you believe? Describe your core beliefs (that is, your worldview), using some of Sire’s eight basic worldview questions to describe your perspective on the world. What are your core values as a person and as a leader? How does your worldview shape your view of leadership? In answering the last question be sure to clearly define what is your understanding of leadership.

3. How will you lead yourself and others? How will you live out what you believe about yourself and the world as a leader? What is your plan to grow your leadership competence and character? 

Each question will form one of three parts, and should be about 3-4 pages. 

· At the end of Week Four you will submit Question 1.

· At the end of Week Eight you will submit Questions 1 & 2 (as one document).

· At the end of Week Twelve you will submit Questions 1, 2 & 3 (as one document).

See course outline for specific dues dates. Total length for the final paper is 9-12 pages, not including the title page and reference page. 

APA format is required. Papers will not be marked on the students’ beliefs but on how well their learnings, leadership philosophy and worldviews are articulated.

BIRKMAN COLOR KEY SHIJIE JIN

Birkman Signature Report | SHIJIE JIN (G63GSH) | ©2019, Birkman International, Inc. All rights reserved. 7

We take these four colors seriously at Birkman. Our use of color becomes shorthand for

understanding fundamental differences between people. Below is a breakdown of the

significance of each Birkman color.

R E

D G

R E

E N

Y E

L L

O W B

L U

E

DOER RED is the Birkman color for people who

prefer to make quick decisions and get

results. Reds are direct and action-

oriented and give full attention to the task

at hand. Reds enjoy building, working with

their hands, organizing people and

projects, solving practical problems, and

producing an end product they can see

and feel. Reds are objective, energetic,

commanding and enjoy team competition.

Reds get results through action.

COMMUNICATOR GREEN is the Birkman color for people

with a strong desire to communicate and

work with people. Every time you see a

Green, they are selling, persuading,

promoting, motivating, counseling,

teaching or working with people to get

results. Greens who believe in a product,

service or idea can communicate about it

with ease and a natural confidence. If you

want someone to win friends and influence

people, a Green is your person for the job.

ANALYZER YELLOW is the Birkman color for people

who love working with processes, details,

definitions and rules. Yellows enjoy doing

careful and detailed calculations,

scheduling, recordkeeping, and

establishing systematic procedures. They

are usually comfortable with numbers,

place a high priority on being fair, and are

cautious and thorough in analysis.

Yellows are task-oriented and often prefer

indirect communication methods including

forms, rules and regulations. If you need

to get organized, find a Yellow.

THINKER BLUE is the Birkman color for the concept

and idea person. Blues love innovation,

being creative and long-term planning.

They enjoy abstract thinking and

discovering new ways to solve problems.

Blues thrive on generating fresh ideas and

coming up with the most viable solutions

for the problem at hand. Blues tend to be

introspective, and while they love

originality and innovation, they may need

to be around other creative individuals to

trigger the spark.

Your Birkman Map® provides an aerial

view of who you are and allows you to

picture.

The Symbols on your Birkman Map identify who you are on two key dimensions. The placement

of the symbol within a color quadrant represents the degree to which you display similarities to

that color quadrant. The left and the right sides of the map (horizontal axis) represent your

preference for dealing with tasks or people. The top and the bottom (vertical axis) represent

whether you are more extroverted or introverted in your style.

INTERESTS – The Asterisk represents what you like to do and where you gravitate in terms

of activities you enjoy.

USUAL BEHAVIOR – The Diamond represents how you usually behave. These are your

strengths, and they compose your best, most productive style. This is how other people

see you. Usual Behavior is how you act when your Needs have been met.

NEEDS – The Circle represents how you need to be or expect to be treated by other people

and your environment. Needs often remain hidden or invisible to others.

STRESS BEHAVIOR – The Square represents your frustrated behavior. This is your

reactive, unproductive style. Stress Behavior is how you act when your Needs have not

been met for an extended period of time. You may see some of the challenges you face

arise here.

Birkman Signature Report | SHIJIE JIN (G63GSH) | ©2019, Birkman International, Inc. All rights reserved. 19

SOCIAL ENERGY Your sociability, approachability, and preference for group and team participation

Among your considerable assets is your ability to think and reason independently of group pressure

while at the same time recognizing the importance of group dynamics. As appropriate, you are able to be

either independent or involved.

Usual Behavior:

balances group and private activities

able to be alone

able to be with others

Needs: In order for you to be really comfortable in group

settings, it is important that you have plenty of time

to yourself, with relief from constant social

pressure. It is easiest for you to participate in

groups when you identify strongly with their cause.

Causes of Stress: Without this identity of cause, or when the pressure

to participate in group efforts becomes prolonged

or intense, you are likely to feel impatient, perhaps

even that time spent with the group is wasted.

Possible Stress Reactions When Needs Are Not Met:

withdrawal

impatience

tendency to ignore groups

PHYSICAL ENERGY Your preferred pace for action and physical expression of energy

The ability to make the most efficient use of your energies and those of others can be listed among your

assets. You recognize the importance of thought and planning before taking action.

Usual Behavior:

reflective

idea-minded

receptive

Needs: Likewise, you function best in an environment which

allows you to exercise your natural abilities. A

relaxed schedule is most comfortable for you; and

after surges of activity, you need time for reflection

and renewal.

Causes of Stress: The pressure of a heavy schedule or deadlines may

result in some anxiousness, especially if you feel

that time has been insufficient for careful thought

and planning.

Possible Stress Reactions When Needs Are Not Met:

fatigue

putting things off unnecessarily

evasive tendencies

EMOTIONAL ENERGY Your openness and comfort with expressing emotion

With your insight into your own and other people's feelings, you have considerable assets in the warmth

and sincerity that you display toward others. Recognizing the significance of emotions in people's

makeup, you tend to set high expectations.

Usual Behavior:
