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.
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).
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.

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).

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.
