Autobiography / Self Reflection
Approximately 2 pages
In order to lead others, it is critical that you learn self management. If you cannot lead yourself, how do you expect to lead others? For this assignment, take some time to reflect on who you are and how you have become the person you are today. How are you a leader of your own life? What actions have you taken and decisions have you made that are taking your life in the direction you would like it to go? Consider the influences and factors that have shaped who you are today. I am not looking for a chronological history of your life, but rather an analytical and reflective review of the most critical components of who you are.
Since you are taking a leadership class, I will assume that you have an interest in leading. Why do you want to lead people? Personally, what (if anything) do you expect to get from the experience? Why does that matter to you?
Some other questions to consider as you formulate your thoughts: What is your family history? What are your family traditions and customs and how have these factors influenced your life and perceptions of leadership? Who and what experiences have influenced your values and philosophies? How have mentors and critical incidents in your life transformed you?
Grades will be based on thoughtfulness and completeness of your reflection. Excellent papers stay on topic and thoroughly address the prompt. Grammar, spelling, and punctuation will also be factors in your grade so be sure to proof read your work before submitting.
