Now that you have completed all of the Leadership Questionnaires and Reflections, you should have an idea of the type of leader you are and the type you would like to become. Write a reflective essay that addresses the content expectations below. Use specific experiences from work, volunteering, or community life to illustrate your points. The paper should be 2–3 pages (not including title and reference pages), double-spaced. Write as if the reader knows nothing about the concepts you discuss.
- Introduction: Introduction and purpose of the paper
- Leadership Approach: Choose at least one leadership approach from the book that you would like to use to assess yourself as a leader. By “leadership approach,” we are referring to the approaches defined in each chapter in the text book (e.g., trait approach, skills approach, style approach). Describe yourself as a leader using this approach.
- Strengths and Weaknesses: Looking at your leadership capabilities overall, what do you believe are your greatest strengths and weaknesses as a leader? Think more broadly than in question one.
- Leadership Plan: Based on your overall review of your leadership approach, what things would you like to do to improve your leadership abilities? What steps will you take to make that happen?
