Instructions

This assessment is in two parts. In part one, you will prepare responses to behavioral-based questions about leadership you think the interviewer will ask you. In the second part of the assessment, you will have the opportunity to reflect on how effectively you have demonstrated Kouzes’ and Posner’s five practices of exemplary leadership.

Part One

As part of your your interview preparation, you have researched and identified five questions commonly asked about leadership in behavior-based interviewing. You are now taking some time to formulate responses to these questions so that you have a good idea of what you are going to say.

Remember: You do not have to actually hold a management or leadership position to act like a leader. People have the opportunity to demonstrate leadership every day. Consider how you coach your child’s soccer team. Think about your participation in various professional or community organizations. Also, reflect on your current job. Even though your title may not say that you are a manger, you still demonstrate leadership every day when performing your duties.

As you write your responses, include as many specifics and examples as possible so that the interviewer has a good understanding of your leadership approach and performance as a leader. Your responses to the interview questions needs to be between four to five double-spaced pages. Here are your interview questions:

  1. Describe a time when you have demonstrated leadership in a challenging situation. In your response, be sure to describe the challenging situation in sufficient detail. Also, explain why it was challenging for you.
  2. How did those around you respond to your leadership?
  3. How did you respond to those who may have challenged you?
  4. What was the outcome to this challenging situation?
  5. If you had it to do over, what would you do differently? In your response, be sure to consider what you could have done differently to effect a better outcome. Also, consider what you could have done differently to demonstrate respect for the team as a whole and for individual team members.
Part Two

Now that you are prepared to respond to the interview questions, write a short two-page reflection paper on how you demonstrated Kouzes’ and Posner’s five practices of exemplary leadership. Be sure to address each of the five practices even if you did not demonstrate them in your challenging situation. Consider how you could have incorporated these practices in your situation.
