In taking the 360o Refined Self-Assessment I have learned my five highest leadership skills are: communication, outcome concern, information sharing, credibility, and decision fairness. My five highest rated behaviors are: communication, communication, communication, outcome concern, and outcome concern. I agree that I do well in communication. Moreover, I feel information sharing is part of a sound communication platform. I talk with my employees as often as possible and sit down with each employee once a month to do employee rounding where we speak of how well their day is working, what I can do to enhanced it, and share any information that is essential to pass along. I also agree that I remain concerned for outcomes since I am genuinely…show more content…

Moreover, I feel mobilizing others generates employees to feel respected and valued. When employees feel their leaders are emotionally invested in them it empowers them to do well for the leader. Finally, in adaptive leadership I scored highest in organizational justice, which includes: decision fairness, information sharing, and outcome concerns. Decision fairness increases satisfaction, productivity, and keeps employees on
