Continuing on the themes of the Module 1 and 2 Case Assignments, for this module

Continuing on the themes of the Module 1 and 2 Case Assignments, for this module you will be doing a self-assessment as well as applying the concepts from the module to your own organization. Make sure to thoroughly review the required background materials before starting this assignment, as you need to apply concepts from readings such as Fleenor, et al. (2008) as part of this assignment. The checklist on page 37 of Fleenor, et al. is especially important for this assignment.
Case Assignment
This assignment has five sections. For each section, the suggested length is one half to one full page, for a total length of four to five pages not including the title page and references. You should also make sure to cite Fleenor, et al. (2008) and other sources multiple times throughout the paper as well as any additional references that you find:
1. Most 360-degree surveys are not free and in fact are very expensive if you want to get a license to use them at your organization. However, there are a few free sample 360-degree surveys out there. Do a search on Google or other search engines using terms such as “free 360-degree feedback survey.” Find two or three free surveys and choose one of them that you think would be most applicable to your organization. Explain the reasoning for your choice and try to use criteria from the readings such as the checklists from Fleenor, et al. (2008, p. 37).
2. Now take the survey that you chose in your answer to Question 2 above. Fill out the survey as a self-evaluation – that is, use the survey to evaluate your own leadership skills and other skills. Report the results of your survey. Do you think the survey was useful? What areas for improvement in your leadership skills did you find from using the survey?
3. As a next step, fill out the survey again, but this time evaluate your current supervisor or a previous supervisor that you worked with. Report your results. Were the results fair to your supervisor? What are the main areas for improvement for your supervisor based on your results?
4. Now that you have taken the survey twice, what areas for improvement would you make for it before using it again? Would you change the wording of the questions? Any questions that you would add? Use the concepts from Fleenor, et al. (2008) as well as your own experiences filling out the survey to assess the usefulness of the survey that you took.
5. Finally, take a look at pages 65-69 of Fleenor, et al. (2008) where they discuss issues, advantages and disadvantages of 360 degree assessment surveys. Which issues do you think would apply to your organization and the leaders you work with? How might you overcome these issues if you were to lead a 360-degree survey process in your organization? Next Start or as Soon as Possible.

For this assignment you will be applying the concepts from the background readin

For this assignment you will be applying the concepts from the background readings to some specific scenarios that you might face if you were a leadership development coach. Make sure to thoroughly review Fleenor, et al. (2008) before starting on this assignment.
For each of the scenarios below, use at least one reference from the required readings to answer the specific question. Use your knowledge of the background readings to diagnose each scenario in terms of what went wrong and what could have been done differently. Your paper should be 2-3 pages in length:
An organization decides that they don’t want to spend the large amount of money to use a 360-degree survey from an established vendor and instead decides to develop their own survey. An employee in the human resource department is asked to create a list of 50 questions about different areas of leadership performance. Two of the senior managers look at the questions briefly and then send out the survey as part of a 360-degree process. Once the results come in, there is no rhyme or reason to the results. For example, one top performing leader in the organization gets perfect performance scores from some employees and very negative scores from other employees. Management is not sure if the results from the survey can be trusted or not.
A unit in one organization is having a lot of performance issues and senior management is not sure of the reasons for this. They don’t want to fire any employees, but they do think some of the supervisors need to improve their leadership skills. The survey is sent to five employees, which includes two supervisors and three direct reports. They are told that although the survey will be anonymous, the results of each survey will be shared with all five employees; the names will be removed from each survey, and they will all be able to see the evaluation scores on each question. When senior management sees the survey results, they find that all five employees received almost perfect scores and no useful information from the surveys can be found.
A software company is concerned that they are losing market share to their competitors and that their software is not as high in quality as it used to be. In an effort to improve their competitiveness, they decide to use a 360-degree survey process to identify areas for improvement in leadership skills among their top supervisors in their software design department. After searching through a few different 360-degree instruments offered by different vendors, they find a survey that focuses on communication and teamwork skills. The process seems to go very well as supervisors who score low on communication or teamwork agree to go through training to improve these skills. One year later, the 360-degree process is repeated, and most supervisors show greatly improved communication and teamwork skills. However, the quality of the company’s software does not seem to have improved at all in spite of the improvements in communication and teamwork.

Case Study 9.1: What’s in a Name?
This is the third case study in this class. Case studies require you to apply the course materials and promote critical thinking skills. After reading the case study, set forth an introductory background of the case in 1-2 paragraphs. Following your introduction set forth each question in the case study, followed by your answer following each question. Your response should thoroughly answer each question, justify your response, and provide support whenever possible.
Your response should be a narrative answer rather than a bulleted answer. This does not need to be a long paper, although each subsection should be 1-3 paragraphs each. Each section of the case study should be labeled and singled spaced. If your response includes extraneous materials besides the textbook, you should cite it by posting a link or citation in APA, MLA, or Chicago style.

Follow the same format presented for Forum Post #1. Find a recent article of the Wall Street Journal concerning a leader and situation you are interested in. For that leader and situation summarize the dynamics of the situation and the leader’s actions. Address the three questions below in your analysis:
• Does the dynamic in the article seem to be a great application of the “Leader, Follower, Situation” interactional framework? If so, how?
• Does the leader show sign of emotional intelligence (explained in Chapter 6)? If so, how does it affect the followers and the situation?
• Thinking through the “Leadership Grid” (figure 7.2), what style of leadership seems more relevant for this leader and why (specific examples that support that style)?
• What leadership competencies (Ch. 7) does this leader portray (again, cite specific examples of the competencies)?
For the leader article that you feel most comfortable with your conceptual analysis and application, post a well written 4-5 paragraph post including the following:
1. Citation for the WSJ article, use APA format (link to the library resources on the left if you are unsure how to cite newspaper articles in APA format).
2. A summary of the people and dynamics in the article (okay to paraphrase or quote but use italics if you do)
3. Your analysis and application of the relevant textbook framework (responses to the questions above).
4. Any advice you have for the leader – did they handle the situation properly or what might they have done differently?
