Final Reflection Instructions

Choose one question to answer from each section: A, B, and C. While answering these questions, be specific and give examples from your experiences to support your statements. Plan on writing approximately 250 words per reflection question.  

Section A: Personal Reflection
  1. An important part of the leadership process is being able to identify your own strengths and being humble enough to recognize your own vulnerabilities. What personal strengths and weaknesses did you discover or revisit during the leadership process? Was there a situation that helped you discover or better understand your strengths/weaknesses?
  2. Were there times during your involvement in the leadership process that you felt you were not acting consistently with your values, beliefs, or attitudes? Describe.
  3. Follow-through and commitment through challenges are an important part of the leadership process. Describe a time when you experienced an obstacle to your participation and how you responded. Did you work through it? Did you choose to no longer participate in the process?
  4. Describe a time when a situation intimidated you. How did you work through the situation?
Section B: Collaboration
  1. Identifying the correct problem to solve is the first challenge of the leadership process. Write about a time you identified a problem and worked with other people to implement actions toward a solution.
  2. An important part of the leadership process is including stakeholder voices. How were you able to encourage participation from all those involved in the leadership experiences you’ve had?
  3. Leadership is a process that happens among people in a group, all of who have the ability to participate in the process, rather than having one person in charge making decisions. Give an example of how you’ve experienced leadership as a process within a group of involved people, rather than as a hierarchical decision.
  4. When group or collaborative work is happening, it’s inevitable that group members will have differing viewpoints. Describe a time when differing viewpoints existed in a group you were involved in and how solutions were reached.
Section C: Connecting Leadership and Learning
  • Describe a time when you were able to apply something learned from class/leadership training to your leadership process experience.
  • What have you learned about the leadership process from your experience that could be applicable to you in your career, major, or other endeavors? Explain.
