Option #1: Leading Oneself
Fritz (2013) posits that your own effectiveness and influence with others depends on you understanding yourself. Chapter 4 addresses how leaders must lead themselves, which includes creating the right surround sound, embracing differences, determining whether you want to be liked or respected (or both), and dealing with circumstances you are given.
Reflect on each of these components of your leadership in a 3- to 4-page paper, following the CSU-Global Guide to Writing & APA. Using a specific leadership context in which you have participated, analyze the outcomes of your leadership. Conclude with two to three specific goals that you will set over the next six weeks of class to improve your self-knowledge so you can lead others more effectively.
