Week 4 Leadership Reflection Questions – Chapters 7 and 8

Read Chapters 7 and 8, and the two attachments for this week’s questions, and then address the following questions in a Word document and submit.

Part 1: Followership

  1. Read the attachment Stephen Covey’s 7 Habits of Highly Effective People, which is very relevant to the ideas of followership presented in Chapter 7.

    1. Using Covey’s model, discuss “doing your duty” vs. initiating new ideas such as product service innovation, improve account/client services, and influencing your boss to make helpful changes. Be sure you use language from the article on Covey’s model in your discussion.

    2. How can you make an impact in your organization using one or more of Covey’s seven habits?

 Part 2: Motivation & Empowerment

  1. Read the attachment (Levels of Initiative) and then:

  2. Identify and explain at least three differences between extrinsic and intrinsic motivators/rewards.

  3. Referring to the attachment (levels of initiative), explain why higher levels of initiative (leadership) require intrinsic motivators rather than extrinsic motivators.

  4. Using the theories and language in Chapter 8 in the textbook, explain your external motivation and internal motivation – please include the elements/language of the theories chosen.

  5. One major objective for this assignment is self-assessment of your level of initiative (leadership vs. management) within your organizational/department context. What is your level of initiative according to the attachment? Please include a specific improvement plan – how will you take greater initiative even if external rewards are not present (internal rewards only)?
