The job role, leadership responsibilities, and leadership issues
The recent job role I have carried out is being a Security supervisor at Sandown park vaccination centre. I had almost 15 guards under me as I lead the team related to security. The decision-making process plays a very imperative part in the terms of deciding which individual is going to get vaccinated first and the sequence. Moreover, the process of site management and overall management is also my duty so management skills play a very imperative part in the organization as well as the organizational context in terms of the operations. Monitoring the aspects of the operations as well as I was appointed as a supervisor because of my skills in terms of leading a particular team. My task was generally to delegate some of the tasks related to the security of the individuals that use to visit the vaccination centre for the vaccination process as my impression was good and I seemed responsible to the individual for having a good impression in terms of the interview process. The biggest challenge that I experienced in my entire job role is that it is tough being a leader. There are different aspects of individuals that are needed to be considered before providing any order as it is quite difficult to consider everything. Understanding the environment and also collecting the knowledge level related to the industry is needed in terms of efficient leaders and communications.Major factors of the leadership journey of the roles and the journey that play a very imperative role in terms of operations of the organization in terms of emotional intelligence as well as self-awareness (Kalargyrou, et al., 2012).
Interpretation of the result
The interpretation of the results shows that positive emotions that show the decision-making process as they are needed to build away according to the negative emotions as well as limiting the thinking process. The results show that it is needed to pay attention in respect to the feelings of the interpretation and thinking of the contribution the basis of biasness in terms of the paying attention that needs to impact the feelings that are needed for the interpretation as well as the thinking of the decision making process as well as a thinking process.

The results also show that it is needed to pay more attention in terms of body language, demeanour as well as facial expressions, and voice tone. The consistent discussion in terms of exploration in terms of the questions that are needed to be explored (Plante, 2012).
The results show that it is needed for the recommendation and the obliged to have the feedbacks in terms of the organization as they are intended to take care of the confidential data of the operations. The activities of the development are presented in terms to use the efficient technique. Emotions play a very imperative role in terms of the consideration of the cognitive biases of the organization. Involving the decision-making process with the help of brainstorming in terms of decision-making in terms of maximizing the major strengths. As the result, I am a person that can deal with certain problems and certain issues and I can figure out what is wrong and what is right. I certainly seek the capabilities and opportunities related to the workplace of the organization. I archive and accumulate the information ideas in terms of artifacts and relationships (Iordanoglou, 2018). According to the report, my strengths are that I quickly understand the issues of the organization and derive the solutions, and also for meeting new individuals, I take care of the resilient and outstanding in terms of the operations and working.
Process of giving and receiving constructive feedback
According to the leadership style that I have pertained, this was visible that the organization can gain or gather intelligence with the help of proper leadership styles as well as seeking transformational leadership style was used and was effective in terms of the operations. My partner elaborated that I am very good at making decisions and managing the team in a positive aspect. He told me that I am very calculative in terms of the decision-making process and providing orders to individuals. I use emotional intelligence for the calculation of the risks in different aspects and the different situations in the organization. But he also told me that I have a lot of anger issues that are not very good for the job role that I am seeking currently as it is a very negative part of the leadership and also personalizing the skills of the operations. I have thought that I will work upon my anger issues that are not a very good aspect of my journey and my leadership skills. I have also decided to reduce my ego in terms of the leadership style because it is hampering my work and it is not a very good aspect of my skills (Bradberry & Greaves, 2012).
According to the different requirements of the organization and the level of the circumstances, it shows the change in the leadership styles asper the operations of the organization. Management of a team is very essential in terms of the operations of the organization. I have amazed that I need to change my leadership style and skills accordingly to increase the effectiveness of the operations. My capabilities consist of making decisions and taking challenging decisions in operations. I have consulted with my partner and he has guided me towards my capabilities as to how effectively I can take certain decisions and how important it is to take these decisions in the operations. My partner is my excellent motivator and helps me a lot in terms of the interpersonal skills of the operations and helps in increasing and improving my skills of the team and also the positive attitude of the operations and circumstances (Morison & McMullan, 2013).
Implications of receiving the feedbacks
Having proper and reliable feedback is very essential in terms of the operations and related to the job scenario as it helps in improving the activities. Feedbacks play a very imperative role in the leadership of the organization that helps in achieving quality and satisfaction of the subordinates that are present in the team as team members. It helps in highlighting the important suggestions helps in motivating the leader or supervisor of the team. Situational leadership explains that the leaders are required to behave or work in terms of the situation that is prevailing in the group and how it helps in becoming an effective leader in terms of the team. Making the subordinates feel part of the team is an integral aspect of the organization and the team itself. Development of the mentoring skills can be a key feature and a key aspect that can help in the improvement of the learning and leadership skills Of the security team. Clarification of the issues that help in gaining the feedback from the subordinates as they offer feedback and that help in gaining the trust, respect, commitment towards the team in terms of achievement of the skills. I need to develop certain skills that my partner has let me know with the help of the feedback of my performance from the last 8 months (Prieto, 2013).
He told me I was not very efficient at first as I faced issues in understanding the work and also the important aspects of work and the operations of the organization But with the ongoing time it is easier for me to develop those skills to handle the team. That is why with the help of the interview that was quite clear that I was able to supervise the security team alone and I became the supervisor. According to the feedback provided by the partner, I also need to have some social skills to socialize with different individuals. I need to manage and recognize the distinct emotions of the different members so I can communicate effectively and that helps in managing the operations. Gaining the dedication and the trust of the individuals is very essential for the knowledge of expressiveness in terms of emotional sensitivity, social expressiveness as well as the emotional control, emotional sensitivity of the employees of the organization. As a leader is my responsibility to inspire the team in terms of conveying the positive regard, attitude and conceptualizing the experience in terms of the abstract that occur in terms of the social skills (Johansen, 2012).
Theory and conceptual frameworks
The conceptual framework of the leadership shows the suggestions that can that shows the components that consist of the efficacy development in terms of the leadership. I have worked as a Security supervisor at Sandown park vaccination centre with 15 guards for 8 months and the main focus was decision-making skills as well as site management. I have used Kolb’s reflective cycle that certain consists of 4 stages. This model helps me reflect the active experimentation and I have decided to increase and built more empathy so that helps in the motivation and behaviour of the individuals of the areas. According to my job experience, I have seen that my skills provide me with the confidence in terms of the operations and the organization of the requirement that helps in the improvement (Hancock, et al., 2012).
This report concludes that the recent job role I have carried out is being a Security supervisor at Sandown park vaccination centre. I had almost 15 guards under me as I lead the team related to security. According to the different requirements of the organization and the level of the circumstances, it shows the change in the leadership styles asper the operations of the organization. As the result, I am a person that can deal with certain problems and certain issues and I can figure out what is wrong and what is right.

Executive Summary. 3
Selection of Period. 4
Leadership Development Model 6
Leadership Development Goals. 8
I am working as a community pharmacist in India and I have plans to pursue my master’s in public health services, as it will provide several opportunities in my career before choosing this path. Public health services, that I can become the Public Health Administrator. Pursuing the master’s in public health services will give me a degree certificate in the same career field and give me the wider knowledge to enhance my career. In the whole report, several things will be discussed such as the selection of period in which I am focusing on enhancing my leadership skills and preparing the personal development plan.
Being a leader, I get to know how to work as a team member and motivate them to achieve their goals and objectives in their personal and professional life. As a leader in this report, I learn several points which need to be focused on and selecting the best leadership development model and preparing a personal development plan for my future as a leader. I have determined some leadership development goals and the importance of taking the feedback from others including managers and colleagues. Also, I have examined that the goals achieve the criteria of SMART. SMART criteria goals including those goals must be specific, measurable, achievable, realistic, and ensure that achieve on time (Lanshina, et al., 2019).
Working as a community pharmacist provides me several benefits in developing my skills in the healthcare sector. I have always been interesting to pursue my career in the healthcare sector which ensures that my skills are developed and my teachers and friends help me that how I can build my career in the same sector. There are several sectors in which I can develop my skills in the healthcare sector and enhance my performance. Working in the NGO will provide me with growth opportunities and will enhance my skills also, I will gain the experience letter of working as a pharmacist. A Master’s in Public health services is ensuring that my skills will be developed and widen my knowledge in the same sector. Public health services include the system of organizing all the activities that is focusing on prolonging life and also promoting health and maximizing efficiency. Our world health care system is also dominated by the provisioning of health care and also neglected public health (Vogel, et al., 2021).
The report is mainly focusing on what activities need to achieve in developing leadership qualities, and I am thinking to expand my services. Ensuring that using the policies and procedures of the organization I will try to best fit in the organization. It is not necessary that wherever I go for working and then I will handle a team. Firstly, I need to work on the immediate level, and then with my dedication and contribution, it will be possible that I got the manager post and ensure that working with my team members I have to work as a good leader. Working as a great leader will help me to analyze what are the issues that my team members are facing and solve their issues and guide them in choosing the best possible option. Also, I am emphasizing more on developing the best leader and I have prepared my development plan. Activities or objectives that I need to achieve are to develop my communication skills and enhance my listening skills as well as leadership skills. Leadership skills and listening skills both are essential for being a good leader because if a leader does not have the capabilities of working as a leader and managing the team then it is not possible to become a good leader(Freeman, et al., 2018).
Communication is important for the leader in the organization where I am focusing on ensuring that every team member who is working with me has the proper understanding of the objectives and strategies, they need to use for achieving those objectives. I am mainly focusing on becoming a great leader and using the right models to develop my thinking and skills. Having problem-solving skills is the major skill that I would like to develop in my journey. Leadership skills are important for managers to develop because leadership is the function of the management, and focuses on increasing maximizing efficiency (Freeman, et al., 2018).
Selection of Period
The selection period for the development as a leader will be required and it takes 2 years to develop and enhance my leadership skills in the organization, as well as become an independent person in my life. I have worked as a community pharmacist in India and I am currently handling the pharmacy in one of the hospitals, as well as currently pursuing my master’s in public health services. Also, I have plans that after pursuing my master’s, I will be working as a promotion health officer and gain experience by working in an NGO. Pursuing a master’s will help me to enhance my knowledge and gain experience and develop my communication as well as leadership skills(Lanshina, et al., 2019).
Also joining the NGO will provide me with growth opportunities and becoming a multi-tasking will also increase my personal development. NGO not only gives me growth opportunities but it increases my networks and building connections would help me become a good leader. Moreover, it will enhance my Curriculum Vitae and increase my employable skills and develop my leadership skills (Ziyadin, et al., 2018).
The essential requirement of being a leader is to improve the performance of all the team members who are working under me as well as understand their issues and make them understand what are their objectives, they need to achieve in their employment journey. Before becoming a good leader, I have to work under a leader who will provide me guidance and I can learn from them how they are managing their tasks and communicating with the people who are working under them(Ziyadin, et al., 2018).
Working under a great leader will not only provide me with growth opportunities, but it will also help me to learn how to conduct meetings with people. A great leader always brings the best abilities and motivates all of us to achieve a shared goal. When I was working as a community pharmacist in India, handling one whole hospital and supplying all the medicines in the hospital, I realized that having leadership qualities will also work for me. Also, I have realized that my leader under whom I was working was very organized and he was tracking the performance of all the employees he mainly ensures that focused on avoiding the delays(Cortellazzo, et al., 2019).
2 years was really fine for me to develop my leadership skills and maintain the quality of my work as well as my communication. My plan to work in an NGO will also help me in developing my skills.
I have realized that taking feedback from the staff members with whom we are working as well as our managers and ensuring that I will take the feedback as well as implement them. Also, I will ensure that all the staff members and my managers provide real feedback. This feedback helps me to identify the areas of improvement where I will be working in the organization. Taking feedback and providing feedback improve my job performance by enhancing my ability and acknowledging the results that I am getting from my colleagues and co-members. Effective feedback is a major contributor to developing leadership skills and reducing employee mistakes and also increase efficiency in the workplace (Cortellazzo, et al., 2019).
Leadership Development Model
The model that has been selected here for personal development is the Whitmore Grow Model.This model helps to set a goal that can be inspiring and challenging as well and the goal that needs to be achieved with the Whitmore Grow model provide flexibility. According to the Whitmore Grow Model, the leadership skills will be developed as there will be a coach who helps to select the best options out of all the possible opportunities. Also, the coach will not provide a straight direction, he will only provide mentoring and coaching in selecting the opportunity (Lacsamana, et al., 2018).
Another mode that we will be going to be discussed is Boyatzis Model is mainly focusing on intentional change, and the person is capable of taking charge of one’s learning. Five steps need to follow in the Boyatzis model of intentional change and the steps include such as discovering your ideal self, discovering your real self, creating the learning agenda, experimenting with and practicing new habits as well as getting support from the colleagues and supervisors(Lacsamana, et al., 2018).
Whitmore Grow Model will be the most suitable model for being a leader. As a leader, there will be several people who will be working under me, and I will guide them in taking decisions and provide the best solutions for issues they will be facing currently in the organization while working as a leader. Out of all the models, Whitmore Grow Model will be used for the improvement of performance, and being a leader in the organization, this model will be going to help.

Moreover, I will use the participative leadership style in which I would take opinions from my working members and ensure that their opinions will be implemented in the organization. The participative leadership style has its benefits of implementation in the organization and the leader must ensure that their opinions are taken into consideration credits will also be given to the employees whose opinions are relevant to the situation and easy to implement in the organization. It leads to an increase the morale and support will be given to the employees.

Moreover, I ensure that a positive working atmosphere will be maintained in the organization so that all employees will stay positive the organization(Asgari, et al., 2020).

Being a mentor and a team leader, I will ensure that I have the responsibility that all staff members are working in a safe environment and they do not get any harm in the organization. Also, the safer the environment is the more productive work will be. Productive employees are considered an asset of the organization, so the right and safe working conditions will be given to them. The workplace also promotes the wellness of employees (Asgari, et al., 2020).
In the end, it has been concluded that being a leader provides several growth opportunities at the workplace and ensures that my skills will be developed. And adopting a good leadership style and using the right leadership development model will be useful. With a good leader, the right vision will be developed and it will motivate all the people to make it a reality. Connecting with all the team members and also encouraging personal as well as professional growthcontributes mainly to leadership development. Keeping a positive attitude is also essential in the organization for being a good leader.
The personal development plan will be prepared for the future as a leader where I have to list down all the activities that in how many months, I will develop my communication and leadership skills. Several skills I have to think to develop are working in the NGO and pursuing my master’s in public health services. Using the right leadership development model will be focusing on providing mentoring and coaching to staff members and increasing their performance as well as increasing their productivity.

To know the own mental state it is very necessary to make self-awareness. Self-awareness is helpful in energizing our self. The strength, weakness and tendencies can be analysed with the help of self-awareness. There are various methods that can be used for the self-development that can be helpful in self-awareness.
Defensive mental state is not a good mental state of any individual. If I am in the defensive mental state then it will not be good for me and for my organisation in which I will work. The person should not be judgemental for any of the people (Sowcik, et. al., 2018). The concern and the issues of another person should be listed by me then the further decisions should be taken. This will be helpful for me in reading other person intention.
Mirroring myself and my decisions
Different type of decisions is taken by me regarding my work. All the decisions should be analysed me and the people around me. This will be helpful for me in the analysis of future decision making. The limitations in the present decision making can be analysed and these limitations can be eradicated in the future decision making (Champy, 2009). After that, the future and the results of the past decision can be compared. The positive feedback can be getting after taking constructive steps regarding limitation on the past distance between.
Tough questions can be asked by the team
I am working as a junior team leader in Woolworths Supermarket. Therefore it is my duty to ask important decisions from the team members in my team. The self-analysis from these questions can be accomplished. If my team members are able to answer the tough questions easily then this will show that I am able to make my team understand important things regarding my organisation. They are able to understand the policies that are associated with their work. Tough questions will give their feedback regarding me if they are unable to answer tough questions.
There is various employees work in the organisation. Any of the employees can become a partner for me. This partner can provide information about positive as well as negative improvement in me. The partner will be accountable regarding my self-development and self-awareness. The accountability partner can be a mentor also. This partner will make sure that I am on the right path of development or not.
It’s not all about me
It is very necessary to analyse that my team is working good for the organisation or not. If I am unable to make them understand the task then they will not work well for the organisation. Therefore it is my duty to make them competent in effective working for the organisation (Champy, 2009). The behaviour of the team members towards me will also show my response and my behaviour towards them. Therefore this self-development provides the analysis of self-awareness regarding own behaviour.
Personal leadership development strategy with leadership Theory
It is the type of theory of leadership different type of behaviour can be used by the leader for accomplishing the organisational task. The autocratic behaviour can be used by the leader in the situation when employees are already ready to work. In this situation, the leader only assigned the task to the Employees (Lamm, et. al., 2018). The relational behaviour is implemented by leaders when an important task has to accomplish with the help of the team of the leader. In this situation, the leader provides training to its staff regarding the important task. The different problems that are associated regarding the task are solved by the leader.
This theory will be helpful for my personal leadership development as different behaviours will be understood with the help of this theory. This theory provides the reactions that have to be made by a leader in the different situation with the employees that are working under the leader. This theory will provide me with an opportunity to lead my team efficiently.
Hersey and Blanchard’s approach – Situation theory
There are various types of styles that can be implemented by any leader for accomplishing the work in the organisation. The style can be used according to the situation.
This is the leadership style that is used in the situation when the task is regular work that is associated with the responsibilities of staff (Globe, 2018). In this style, less relationship is focused by the leader.
Some of the tasks are there that require coaching as well as supervision. In such type of situation, a leader implements selling is time. Leader trains the team member as well as motivate them to do that work.
This is the type of leadership style in which relationship is given priority by the leader. The task is least focused on this style. This type of leadership is implemented by the leader when there is less commitment of the team member is shown. In this situation, the leader motivates the team member to work with full of commitment.
When the team member is already motivated to do the particular task then this delegating style is implemented by the leader (Lamm, et. al., 2018). In this situation relationship as well as task both is less focused by the leader.
This style of leadership will provide me with a platform to know the method of tackling team member in a different situation. This type of leadership Theory is very useful for the individual that wants to become a good leader. Leadership can be performed by any individual without any issue with the help of this situation theory.
Fiedler’s Least Preferred Co-worker Contingency theory
Different type of contingencies can be possible at the time of working in an organisation. Contingencies can be solved with the cooperation and coordination between the employees. It is very necessary for a leader to take a fast decision in contingencies. There is the various method by which contingency can be minimised at the time of work.
If the team member and the leaders are enjoying good relationship then in the situation leader ask the team member to be Cooperative at the time of contingency. The flexibility in the work can be possible from the team member side because of a good relationship between leader and team member.
The controlling of the task is in the hands of the leader. If there is contingency takes place in the organisation then prioritisation of the task can be possible. In this situation, the team members should agree to resolve the contingency according to the task urgency.
Leader position power
The leader is having high authority among the team member. Therefore leader should have that personality so that the team member will follow the instruction given by the leader. The same following should be accomplished by the team member at the time of contingency. This will be helpful in resolving the contingency in a fast manner (Globe, 2018).
The above methods provide me with the opportunity to learn the authoritativeness of the leaders. The method by which flexibility among the team members can be implemented is also analysed with the help of this leadership Theory. The solution of the contingency can be analysed easily with the help of coordination and cooperation. This theory provides me with the understanding of coordination and cooperation in the team.

This is the leadership style that will make supportive (Javidan, et. al., 2006).
Empower each individual
Little encouragement is very useful buy the leaders. If the encouragement is given to the individual on the small good performance then it will be a quite motivating moment for the team member. Therefore this leadership style will be helpful for me to encourage team members for working on the future challenging task.
Competition between employees can be created by the leader. This will make the employees enthusiastic. They will work enthusiastically to be in the top of the competition. Competition can be created by me for the completion of the important task with full of commitment by the team member.
