Leadership Reflection Questions – Chapters 1 and 2
Part I. The Leadership Challenge
This part of the assignment is based on the article The Leadership Challenge, which is based on the best-selling leadership book The Leadership Challenge. The article provides additional insight into the challenges that leaders face in organizations today, as well as five practices that lead to more effective leadership. Please read the article and Chapter 1 in the textbook prior to completing Part 1 of the Leadership Reflection Questions assignment.
1. The authors, Kouzes & Posner, identified five leadership practices (consistent behaviors) through years of extensive research with thousands of participants. Discuss the section “Credibility is the Foundation of Leadership” addressing the following questions:
a. Do leaders really need to be honest – isn’t it OK to lie a little, cover-up facts, break promises because of circumstances?
b. What are the social consequences of dishonest behavior?
c. What are the “natural” consequences (impact on self-concept, trust, confidence, etc.)?
d. Can leaders really inspire? Isn’t this a job for the individual (to inspire self)?
e. Provide an example of an inspirational leader you have known. How did he/she affect your emotions, hope, views?
2. Review the outline for each of the five practices: Model the Way, Inspire a Shared Vision, Challenge the Process, Enable Others to Act, Encourage the Heart.
a. Select one of the five practices and provide supporting evidence (e.g., experiences) for the practice.
b. Provide an example(s) of a leader who behaved in ways opposing the chosen practice.
Part 2: Traits, Behaviors and Relationships
Please read Chapter 2 and then refer to Exhibit 2.7 below (and in textbook) which shows how some leaders treat In-Group Subordinates compared to how they treat Out-Group Subordinates. Please address all of the questions in Part 2.
3. In-Group/Out-Group Followers:
a) Describe an example of a leader from your past experience who created an “out group” of followers through their behaviors and traits. (Please be sure to discuss someone who created an “out group”, which means there was also an “in group” of subordinates which this leader treated more favorably than the “out group”). This question is not asking about a poor leader who treats everyone badly.
b) Identify and describe the specific behaviors this leader exhibited, as well as the leader’s personality characteristics.
c) What were the consequences of this leader’s treatment of the “out group” to the department, other employees, and/or company?
d) How could this leader change to avoid the “out group” and create a happier, honest work culture where people feel respected for their unique talents and views?
4. Leader-Member Exchange:
a) In your own words, explain the concept of Leader-Member Exchange. Please avoid a simple textbook definition.
b) Identify and evaluate specific behaviors of a leader you have known who engaged in Leader-Member Exchange in the management of his/her subordinates by adapting/flexing their style and communication in order to create trust with each individual subordinate.
5. Personality, Behavior and Traits:
a) First, identify what you believe are your own greatest strengths (behaviors and traits). Explain how they have helped you to succeed.
b) Then please go to: and complete the “Brief Strengths Test” questionnaire. You need to register before you can access the “Questionnaires”. After registering, click on Questionnaires and select “Brief Strengths Test.” Be sure to include the summary of your results from the test in your narrative for this question.
c) Compare the results of the “Brief Strengths Test” questionnaire with your own perception of your strengths. Are they the same, or did the test reveal some differences?
d) How will you use your strengths to be a more effective leader going forward?
