Assessment Results Analysis
Leadership is the ability to guide others toward achieving desired outcomes or shared goals, and a leadership philosophy is a framework utilized by a leader (Broome & Marshall, 2021). The Clifton strengths finder assessment results indicated that I am talented in the learner, includer, ideation, input, and discipline themes (Rath, 2007). Therefore, I exhibit a great desire to acquire new insights and constantly seek to improve myself; I am highly aware of those who are left out and try to include them and find connections between ideas. Moreover, I constantly collect and archive information and interactions and enjoy having a routine and structure. The assessment results align with my leadership traits, such as open-mindedness, collaboration, respect, integrity, and accountability. Moreover, it aligns with my leadership philosophy that integrates visionary, ethical, and democratic leadership styles.
The two strengths that I would like to improve are the includer and discipline strengths. Being an includer involves accepting and including those who are left out and allows for a diversity of knowledge and skills that improves performance, decision-making, and problem-solving. Discipline entails having an orderly structure of behavior, which establishes inner strength and character and enables one to focus on their goals.
I plan to improve the two strengths, includer, and discipline, by identifying opportunities that would enable me to practice these behaviors deliberately and frequently practicing them. Moreover, I will develop goals and metrics to evaluate my performance in these two themes. For instance, assessing how much I procrastinate or make decisions independently without seeking the opinion of others. I will achieve my vision by leveraging my strengths, such as being talented in the leaner, includer, ideation, input, and discipline themes. Moreover, I will identify weaknesses and find ways to overcome them.
