Leadership Approach for Team Members
Mr. Peck, my team is comprised of four members. After taking the Jungian’s 16-Type Personality Self-Assessment, each member has identified their personality and possible career choices and has shared it among the group. Each member’s classification is discussed in this paragraph. Team member 1, scored ENTP. Under the analysis and interpretation each member’s classification with this type of personality describes one who is innovative, individualistic, versatile, and entrepreneurial. Team member 2, scored ENTJ. This personality is identifies a person who is outgoing, a visionary, argumentative, have a low tolerance for incompetence, and often seen as a natural leader. Team member 3 scored ISFP which means they have a personality of warmth, sensitive, unassuming and artistic. The 4th member of the team scored ISFJ which states they are loyal, amiable, and willing to make sacrifices for the greater good. Each score depicts the uniqueness of each personality. According to Merriam-Webster Dictionary (n.d.) “diversity is defined as an instance of being composed of differing elements or qualities.” Each member carries a different personality trait. Not only are there uniqueness among the group, we are diverse in our own rights. Leadership Theories
In Chapter 17 of Management the topic of “Managers as Leaders”; we learned about the five leadership trait theories. “These early leadership theories focused on the leader (leadership trait theory) and how the leader interacted with his group members (leadership behavior theories.)” Other trait theories include the contingency trait theory, and leadership member exchange theory.
