In this regards, contingency theory is important for global leaders (Anievas, 2016). I realized that there are two ways in which I can exercise my leadership style, first as a task motivator and second as a relationship motivator. However, based on the urgency of the situation, I preferred to be a task motivator and thus, I was able to responsibly complete the task with the full cooperation of my fellow colleagues. One of the strengths that I identified is delegating tasks for the accomplishment of an international project. One of the weaknesses that I identified is the lack of time management skills which hindered my ability to assess the time zone of different countries.
For international projects, it is important to have a time planner of the countries for which I work. Failing to do so, I was unable to deliver a task within a specified international deadline. Based on the Myers-Briggs Personality Test, I have found myself to be The Idealist with INFP (Introversion, Intuition, Feeling and Perceiving) as the indicator (Online personality tests, 2017). Some of the strengths that I identified based on the personality test are loyalty, sensitivity, strong written communication skills, values relationships and focus on the greater perspectives of business.
Being an introvert, I continue to face the face-negotiation problem and lack of displaying energy in case of social situations. However, I possess sound decision-making skills as I am open to options and often decisions are made based on circumstances and not on theoretical aspects. As I have never been to international locations to practically execute tasks in international settings, I lack in overseas experience and thereby hindering my ability to be an international manager. With less overseas experience, I have little learning on how international business is done in different contexts.
