In order to respond to society and the world it must begin with a decision to act in the true sense of the word leadership. There is no right or wrong model of leadership and to make a better world, society needs a variety of leadership models in place. In other words, leadership doesn’t have to be a formal, exalted position.

The assigned readings and assignments on the first and second week of this course help me learn more about my interpersonal communication needs and barriers. It helps me to strengthen my listening and verbal skills. With the DISC assessment I learned some interesting things about my strengths and weakness.
Q1.1 Under the DISC model I feel that the ‘Directing’ style most adequately characterises my approach to communication. As an individual I am competitive and have found that the need to ‘win’ has shaped my approach to completing tasks. As a result I often take the lead in team based scenarios as I feel more comfortable in bearing a larger portion of responsibility to ensure the task is completed in the relevant time-frame and to the appropriate standard. I can also relate to other behaviours associated with the ‘Directing’ style of communication such as challenging the status quo and resisting authority. In this context I would consider these to be positive behaviours, describing a willingness to be creative and not be bound by
I enjoyed using the DiSC assessment. I think I learned a little more about myself and my interactions with coworkers.

I would prefer if people would communicate with me by considering my availability

I found several key learning areas that are meaningful, interesting and relevant to my work over the course of studying this unit. These key learning areas have not only expanded and improved my view of organisational behaviour but they also have
