Review the book chapter 6 and 7 and do the following:
Ch. 6 – Developing Leadership Skills
Importance of skills
In this chapter, Northouse divides leadership into three kinds of skills – administrative, interpersonal, and conceptual. Rosalinde Torres talks about What it takes to be a great leader.
Do you think some of these skills are more important than others in some situations? Do you think lower levels of leadership (e.g. supervisor) require the same skills as upper levels of leadership (e.g. CEO)? Why or why not? Support your response!
Of the skills discussed in this chapter, which ones do you most need to work on? (Use the questionnaire results as a guide). Specifically, how could you go about doing that?
Simon Sinek, author of Leaders Eat Last, explains where the title of the books comes from in this video.
Do you agree that leaders eat last? Why or why not?
Ch. 7 – Creating a vision
Review the case study, “A Clean Slate” on pages 152-153. Note how Nick was given a task and he had to adjust his vision to meet the requirements of the owners of the newspaper. Now, think about a group or organization to which you belong (or belonged in the past). Was there a clear vision for this group/organization? If yes, how was it communicated? Was this effective? Why or why not? If you were the leader of this group/organization, what would YOUR vision be? Why? How would you communicate that vision?
Both Martin Luther King, Jr. (“I have a dream” speech) and John F. Kennedy, Jr. (Inaugural Address) created a vision using symbols. What language and symbols would you use in communicating your vision for your group/organization? Explain.
