From the results, am averagely good at solving problems which are logical mathematical (observing rationality and logical), as they are very complex and it takes more time for me to solve those complex problems, I am excellent at verbal/linguistic (words and language) since i am really good in English Language and don’t find any difficulty in reading and writing it in a proper sentence and also I use the proper grammar and sentence structure, . However listening to musical (sounds, tonal patterns, and rhythms) not something I like since whenever I hear the whole music, identify the sounds, tone, patterns, and rhythms properly and sing the song that I just heard appropriately becomes hard.

The experience and skills through training assure me of a good leadership personality and effective application of skills. 10.3 How do I handle tea conflict? I choose compromising technique in resolving issues that arise within the team since as a leader I have come to understand that conflicts vary in nature and a team is made up of different people who possess different personalities that need to be accepted and adjusted to suit team interests.
I have acquired skills on conflict resolution and team management for the same purpose of understanding the needs of organizational teams. 7.1 The Power of FollowershipAs a leader, I am Middle or average independent thinker and rating for engagement is middle score. Experience as a leader has given me an understanding of the importance of balanced thinking between independent and dependent thinking. Engagement is also a leadership skill I have acquired through training. I prefer middle engagement to low or high engagement.
Part 3: Integration and Extension: Personalized Leadership Approach & Development PlanPersonal modelBeing a leader calls for developing one’s own model for improving skills so as to attain effectiveness in leadership (McHugh, 2009). My personal model as a leader is “motivation plus fourteen P’s” (personality, persuasive, persistence, patience, probity, praise giving, positive orientation, people based, possible, practical, progressive, and power building)
