    Use the work you completed in Section 1 of your Project Portfolio and if relevant, the additional information in the Simulation Pack to help you complete this section.
1. Assess your personal leadership style, including:
2. using an appropriate tool to assess your leadership style (e.g. https://www.mindtools.com/pages/article/leadership-style-quiz.htm)
2. a description of your leadership style
Participative style of leadership is helpful when your team needs to follow a process "to the letter," to manage a significant risk. It's also effective when you need to be hands-on with people who miss deadlines, in departments where conflict is an issue, or in teams that rely on quick decisions being made.
2. an explanation how your leadership style already models (or should be improved to model) positive innovative thinking and practice.
The leadership can be improved by relying on control and punishment to maintain standards will likely drive people away. It requires understanding demand that team works at top speed and can end up exhausting everyone. This requires for team members by providing the rationale for your decisions. This will more likely comply with your expectations if you take the trouble to explain Why the Rules Are There. It can improve your ability to "lead from the front" by Planning for a Crisis, Thinking on Your Feet, and making good decisions under pressure. But be sure to balance these skills with an awareness of their potential negative impact on creativity, ideas gathering, motivation, and trust within the team.
1. Develop and apply at least two strategies to make innovation an integral part of your organisation. Complete the table below (you have already identified the strategies in Section 1 of your Project Portfolio).
