High performance leadership has been about gaining practical knowledge and experience. Goals were set as part of Assessment 1 for your personal development and performance as a coach/mentor. Reflect on your personal development through the mentoring experience:
1. Discuss your experience of mentoring in this subject.
• Provide a brief summary of the meetings, including date, duration, main discussion points, client goals and action items (be aware of confidentiality).
• What have been some of the highlights that have brought you satisfaction?
• What were some of the more challenging moments?
• How does your experience relate to the coaching literature and positive psychology literature, as discussed in class, in the Symposium and external research?
2. Discuss the development your intrapersonal and interpersonal skills over the course of the term. For both key dimensions:
• In what areas have you grown the most? How did that happen?
• What are underperforming areas you should work on in order to continue your leadership skills development (as it relates to coaching and mentoring)?
• How did your CliftonStrengths manifest through the mentoring relationship?
• Based on your coaching experience, what areas would you flag for further development (both strengths and weaknesses) in your Leadership Development Action Plan (assessment 4)?
3. What are some of the practical lessons you have learned about facilitating performance outcomes and growth, as a mentor/coach/leader?
• Be sure to relate your lessons learned to industry/coaching/ leadership research
This is a reflective assessment, which means that the use of the first person (“I”) is encouraged.
Be sure to take an evidence-based approach, demonstrating how you have drawn insights from any relevant activities and assessment profiles conducted.
