Assigned Leaders Group Discussion Exercise: Assessing Your Leadership Skills
(2 pages of text)
The purpose of this exercise is to assess students’ group leadership and followership skills. Participants prepare for the exercise individually by reading six mini-cases that describe people-management challenges and then selecting a solution for these challenges from the options provided at the end of each case. During the exercise, participants are randomly assigned to discussion groups of five to six members, where each person serves as a leader for one case and as a participant for the remaining five case discussions. The discussions give participants the opportunity to exhibit effective leader and follower group behaviours and to demonstrate their oral communication, judgment, and decision-making skills. Self-assessment and group observation forms are provided.
Learning objectives for this exercise focus on leadership and followership skills in groups, particularly decision-making in teams, interpersonal skills, group process leadership, and task leadership.
