Sample Essay

Discuss your most meaningful leadership experience. What did you learn about your own individual strengths and weaknesses through this experience? 500 words

My biggest project at xxxxx also proved to be the most meaningful and personally enriching, helping me recognize and develop my key strengths. The project involved guiding two pharmaceutical companies in targeting customers for a new product. Impressed by our strong strategy support, clients awarded us a key reporting assignment. The two critical reports involved highlighted the sales-force activity against the contractual agreement between the companies and were to be reviewed by client's senior management. Unfortunately, challenges cropped up when a .............. against the clients. Things got worse when two experienced associates left our team. Panic ensued as smooth delivery of the reports was getting uncertain and any mistake in these reports might have entailed far-reaching consequences.

The situation called for quick thinking, decisive action, with efficient task and time management. Overwhelmed by the increased workload and resource crunch, ............... the importance of focused efforts on development of two new associates to achieve dividends in the long run. Consistent motivation and dedicated mentoring would ensure they build expertise quickly and add to team's productivity. Although an informal environment was necessary to actively involve the associates, I had to be stern with the delivery of their work. In order to meet all timelines, I planned to distribute the onus within the team while retaining the bottom-line responsibility. While allowing new associates to lead, I also required a quality assurance plan in case they erred.

With these thoughts in mind, I assigned one report each to the associates while managing the targeting work myself, and encouraged them to confidently give their best. I led the implementation of tough quality tools which caught errors early and helped us avoid reworks. As associates grew in responsibility, I could focus on preparing a contingency targeting plan to tackle the lawsuit. My vigilant approach ensured that we delivered great value despite having inexperienced members, and my persistence saw spectacular success when the client renewed our contract.

This incident made me recognize my strengths- delegation, motivation and communication, trouble shooting, sound planning and crisis management. Recognizing my strengths made me understand that sensible planning and rationalized thinking form the basis of great achievements. Working on this project changed my perspective on how a leader ought to be. This experience taught me that a leader should make sure that everyone in the team is ably contributing and allow others to steer the ship. This strategy contributes to team's collective growth and ensures that the task does not depend on any one member. It would have been easier for me to handle most of the work but I wanted to challenge myself as a leader and give the associates an opportunity to learn and grow. This plan paid off soon as they gained confidence and became indispensable to the team. I learnt to .............. . planning which guarantees long-term sustainability. I successfully practiced this learning in my next engagement where I single-handedly managed three demanding projects simultaneously.
