In reference to the above categories, what do you consider to be this

team members greatest asset? Provide a rationale to describe why you
selected this particular leadership capacity.

Considering all aspects of the above evaluation, I would say Todds greatest asset is
his active communication skills. Next to our team leader, Todd was likely the most
active member in our group. While juggling a lot of work responsibilities including a
stint away from technology, Todd still remained very much in touch with the group
process and progress throughout the semester. Todd was a major contributor to the
team having been responsible for the original case study idea. And while originally
requesting not to actually write the story, Todd quickly accepted the responsibility of
doing so after evaluating his need to be away in later months. Todd wrote a very
eloquent case study that involved personal experiences. He made sure the case study
was rich in theoretical connection opportunities and dynamics. Todd sought the
feedback of the group, made corrections and submitted this assignment for our group.
While away and only having access to an iPad, Todd still took the extra lengths to
provide us with professor feedback on our initial assignment. While initially agreed
upon, this was going to be Todds major contribution to the case study and teaching
notes assignment; however, as the rest of the group started working on the
theoretical application notes, Todd recognized other introductory and conclusion items
that needed to be addressed and went ahead and offered to complete those.

In reference to the above categories, what do you consider to be this

team members greatest need for improvement? Provide a rationale to
describe why you selected this particular leadership capacity.

To be quite honest, I had a wonderful group experience working with Mike, James,
Robert, and Todd. There were really no issues in our group or in our interactions with
one another. With that being said, it is extremely difficult to name an area of
improvement for team members who really seemed to full engage in the project. If I
had to list an area of improvement for Todd, while not specifically tied to the above
evaluation, I might say confidence in his writing abilities. As mentioned before, while
Todd suggested the idea for our case study, he quickly vocalized that he wasnt much
of a story teller and requested not to write the actual case. After reflecting on his need
to be gone during the thick of teaching notes preparation, Todd agreed to write the
case study. When he submitted the initial draft to the group, we were all blown away
by his eloquent writing style, storytelling abilities, and way with words. Todd should
not second guess his own abilities. As the primary proof-reader, I had to make very
little corrections to any portions he worked on. In fact, sometimes he corrected things
on his initial draft before they even were pointed out.
All in all, I cannot critique Todd much. He was probably my favorite team member to
work with. He was very active, communicated wonderfully, was quick to respond, and
even provided positive feedback to me as an individual team member. I would be
happy to be Todds teammate anytime!
