Before you create and submit your assessment, complete the following:

  1. Review the results of your STAR assessment and look for credible, professional resources on leadership and managing stressful situations.

    • Condense your personal leadership brand into two words that best describe your style. You can test your proposed leadership brand by asking colleagues for feedback. Include a so that statement for your brand that demonstrates how your leadership style adds value to your organization.
