Leadership Style Assessment Paper


All papers in this course are to be checked for plagiarism using the Turnitin Program prior to

submission. This assignment is worth 20 points and constitutes 20% of your grade for this


Before you begin this assignment you should have completed:

A. The Leadership Style Assessment found on the MindTools website:


Note: You may base your answers on how you behave now as a formal or

informal leader in your unit/organization.

B. The Jung Typology Test found on the HumanMetrics website:


Note: When you complete this assessment, your personality “type” Based upon

four (4) traits (e.g., INFJ) will be identified. Links are available on the website to

two or more interpretations of your specific personality type. Also note that one

rarely fits 100% of the characteristics/description of a personality type, but this

test is fairly accurate in revealing your innate temperament/tendencies.


Using the results of the two assessments, the readings and research, prepare a paper that

discusses your leadership style, personality type and a leadership competency. Use the

outline below to frame your discussion. The paper must be no longer than four (4) pages.

This page limit does not include the title or reference pages. Papers that are over four (4)

pages are not to be submitted and will not be accepted for the assignment. As this is an

assessment of your leadership potential therefore you may write this paper in first person.

However, if you chose to write in first person, it will be important to retain a scientific and

scholarly focus for the tone of the paper. All factual, dates, data and outcome statements

need to contain citations. The examples you use to demonstrate your leadership style and

traits should be related to your role as a formal or informal nurse leader and be work-related.

Please limit all discussions and examples to work-related activities.

A. Paper Content

1. Leadership Style Assessment

leadership style was defined equally by two styles/potentials, then choose the

style). Give examples of how you demonstrate this style either in formal or

informal leadership roles in the nursing practice arena.
