LEADERSHIP- LESSON 2-
DIFFERENT LEADERSHIP STRENGTHS
PART 1- INTRODUCTION
By the end of this lesson, learners should:
- understand three different strengths that individuals might bring as a leader
- appreciate the diverse skill sets required for successful teams and projects
- consider their own strengths as a leader and what they might contribute to a group
PART 2- LEADERSHIP STRENGTHS INVENTORY AND DISCUSSION- (10 MINUTES)
Firstly, students complete the UPP leadership strengths inventory if they have not previously done so. This can be found in the Leadership Builder workbook.
Teachers invite students to share their main strength (from the survey) with a partner, and explain whether they believe it to be accurate or not. Teachers may also invite a show of hands for people to indicate their main strength (which allows the class to see the distribution of strengths.) Most groups will have about 20% prophet leaders, 20% planner leaders and 60% people leaders. DISCUSS- How is each strength important to the success of a team or group?
