Week 11 Assignment 1

Assignment Introduction and Context:

In your course project, you will apply all five of the leadership challenge practices to your leadership setting with careful attention paid to your style or SHAPE profile. You must also include how you as a leader fit in this system. You may incorporate a revised version (based upon instructor’s feedback) of W8 Assignment 2 “The Content of the Leader’s Heart.”


Write a personal engagement and a reaction paper of 2,500–3,000 words:
Briefly define the five practices of the leadership challenge model and apply a comprehensive plan of how you will utilize each core activity in your church or leadership context.
As you apply these five practices (also factor in your SHAPE profile), offer some ideas on how your strengths best emerge in leadership.
Ensure this paper also reflects the areas where you need complimentary gifts from others to create a healthy organization.
This should become your “leadership manifesto” going forward.
Your final product will be in a Microsoft Word document. Utilize at least six sources from professional and academic literature in your research.

Your paper should be written in a clear, concise, and organized manner; demonstrate ethical scholarship in accurate representation and attribution of sources; and display accurate spelling, grammar, and punctuation, and formatted in Turabian style.
