Leadership Development Plan
Strength’s that I posses are very important when in becoming a great leader. The strength’s that I posses are good listening skills, persuasion, determination, compassion, honesty, and respect. I feel that in order to be a leader, listening is just as important as talking. When people take the time to listen they may learn new information that they never knew before. What I do, is instead of missing out on something I like to take in all the information that I can and then combine it with my own so that I can produce a much clearer image when I speak. My second strength persuasion, is a key role in being a leader to me. If subordinates have a different idea then their leader does, persuasion has to be executed in order for the group to accomplish the task on hand. Determination, which is my strongest strength, helps motivate me to succeed and be good at what I do. It helps me to complete my task without any hesitation. When there is something that I want to accomplish my determination makes me work as hard as I can in order to be successful. My fourth strength, compassion helps me creates a comfortable atmosphere letting the people around me know that I care and that if there is anything wrong I am here
Traits and Characteristics that are most important to me are having a good attitude, good work ethics, team player, ready to jump into any task at hand, and always willing to learn. Having a good attitude is something that every person should have (it would make the world a better place). No one is perfect, but those who have good attitudes don’t have to prove nothing because their attitude speaks for themselves. Work ethics are another plus because everyone likes someone who is dependable when it comes to a job. Work ethics cannot only help a team but it can help a company succeed because the right people are doing the right job. Being a team player makes a person more diverse in any situation. Just like the reality T.V. shows teams that work together end up being more successful then the teams that don’t work together. Another important trait is being aggressive. Someone who is willing to jump on the task at hand and is a risk taker is more likely to succeed and make a big impact then the average Joe who sits on his hands. The last characteristic which deals with the willingness to learn is important because this trait is a sign that says the person is a go getter who needs no motivation and wants to make themselves better at what they do. This is the type of person any team needs to be lead by because they have an open mind and are ready to work.
1.Leaders I will seek out to learn from are my Store Team Leader Steve Ruskin and the District Team Leader Scott Hanson who I already work for. From the two the hope to gain guidance and obtain the leadership skills they have so that I can integrate them with my own so eventually in two-years when I graduate I can get into the Executive training program with Target.
3. Leadership Opportunities I will pursue are whenever I can get a chance to take on the role as a leader I will not hesitate to assume the duty. I want as much practice as I can and show that I can be a great leader. If I can’t get an opportunity like a leadership role then depending on the circumstances I will have to look for whatever one I can get myself into because I refuse to sit on my hands when I want to be a somebody. I will continue my pursuit until I can get some kind of role or I am satisfied with some kind of similar duty.
Out of my leadership requirements I want to be able to walk out of executive training at the top of the class. I want the person who trains me in the training program to say, “he is the best I have ever seen and I would want him working in my store”. I want to make my name known as soon as I step in the program.
