QUESTION: Complete the leadership development questionnaire, “Leadership Development – Test One – What Is Your Leadership Style?” found in the topic Resources. Describe your leadership style based on the leadership assessment. Select a leadership style other than the style identified in the leadership assessment that you will use over the course of your DPI Project. Compare these two leadership styles and how they will be used within your DPI Project.
After completing the leadership development questionnaire in the course resource “Leadership Development – Test One – What Is Your Leadership Style,” my leadership style based on the assessment was transformational (Dawes,2015). Transformational leadership involves inspiring and motivating others to achieve exceptional performance standards toward common goals(Eliyana et al., 2019). Transformational leadership comprises these four elements: Idealized Influence, Intellectual stimulation, Individualized Consideration, and Inspirational Motivation (Dawes,2015). Idealized influence refers to the behavior of the transformational leaders to be seen as role models by the group members and inspire them to follow their behavior. This component helps the leaders set an example for others to follow through with their behaviors and actions. The leaders exhibiting idealized influence are respected by the team members and are seen as trustworthy, ethical, and honest. The followers envision the leader as one with values and principles, which creates a sense of loyalty among the followers of team members. Overall, idealized influence helps to develop trust and respect among the group members and inspires them to follow their leader. Intellectual stimulation is another component of transformational leadership that makes the leaders challenge the existing norms and encourage a culture of innovation. It develops critical thinking among the followers by questioning the old rules and regulations or theories that are redundant or least helpful towards the growth and development of the organization; transformational leaders with intellectual stimulation provide resources to their teams or followers to develop new skills and continuous learning with experimentation and creativity. Individualized consideration is the aspect of transformational leadership that makes the leader coach and advise the team toward achieving the goals. The leader understands the personal strengths and weaknesses of the team members and offers mentoring and coaching toward the growth and development of the team and meeting the desired goals
