The final project for this course is the creation of a leadership philosophy defining what you think leadership should look like and a personal leadership action plan that explains how you will work toward achieving specific leadership goals. The philosophy should reflect on leadership theory and ethics and evaluate practiced leadership behaviors. The action plan should integrate the leadership strengths and weaknesses identified in several self-assessments and observer assessments and outline how you will move forward with your leadership development in the field of business.
In lieu of testing, this project is meant to illustrate what you have learned in the class and will assess your level of learning. Be sure to include all required elements to demonstrate your class-based knowledge.
Leadership is an evolving concept, meaning that leaders should master different arts to help them deal with changing situations. In my opinion, the art of communication defines leadership in most cases because leaders have to find a means of effectively communicating with their followers. Furthermore, leaders should lead by example by setting standards they know they can attain themselves. Finally, my leadership philosophy is about having vision because without this, the entire organization might not have hope.
