Self Reflection

This paper involves applying the class learning to YOU as a potential leader, including analyzing your leadership characteristics and behaviors with input from people who know you. Your paper must be typed and well-edited, and at least 4 pages (single-spaced) or 8 pages (double-spaced) in length. Clear organization and headings are important.

0-150 points will be awarded, based on the following evaluation criteria:
 Data collection: Variety and thoroughness 0-35
 Personal insights: Objectivity, honesty, and depth 0-50
 Incorporation of class material 0-35
 Communication: Clarity, precision, and logic flow 0-30

The process for the data collection, analysis, and writing is as follows:

1. Collect Data
 Complete at least 5 of the listed self-assessment quizzes in Kinicki (*see next page)
 Structure and conduct interviews with four trusted friends or work associates; these should be people who know you and who will be honest with you. The 4 should be from different settings and no more than one should be a family member. Ask each person
1. “Which 3-4 leadership traits and characteristics (from the list on the last page) have I most frequently demonstrated in the past year? “Ask them to provide examples.
2. “Which two characteristics do you feel I could ‘dial up’ to increase my effectiveness as a leader?”

2. Interpret and Reflect
o Think about the class material on leadership that we have discussed this term, including cases, and think about how the learning could apply to YOU.
o Think about your results from the data collection in part 1. What are the themes you heard across the interviews? What did you hear that is surprising? What is consistent with what you expected?

3. Write Paper
Write a well-organized, structured paper of 4 or more pages, (single spaced), formatted with headings as follows:

Section 1: Overview
Should include purpose and the process you followed (e.g. to whom you talked, self-assessment material used, etc).

Section 2: Data Results
Should identify and discuss the 4 or 5 “themes” that came out of your interviews and self-assessment materials, including leadership characteristics (both strengths and areas for development). Use examples and evidence to support the themes.

Section 3: Analysis and Insights
Should address the following questions:
• Which findings from Section 2 were consistent with your prior self-perception? Which were surprising to you? How do these findings tie with the class concepts we have studied?
• Beyond the findings in sections 1 and 2, what are three or four things you have learned about yourself and your leadership development, which you did not know or realize when you began this class? Tie these insights to the class concepts you found most meaningful.

Section 4: Implications
Should address the following questions:
• What does the personal learning in sections 2 and 3 imply about the types of organizations that “fit” best with you?
• How do you intend to apply your personal learning from this paper and this course in the workplace over the next 1-2 years?
