Reflective Leadership Journal Assignment

  • by



In this module, you learned that you can’t be a leader without followers. Leadership, then, is a very personal process, and yet it is anything but a solitary process. Leading is ultimately about people. In this course, the journal will be used for reflection. This is a private conversation between you and your instructor, and you are encouraged to deeply explore the concepts presented.


You have watched Simon Sinek’s “Find Your Why” video clip. In this video, Sinek says, a true leader is someone for whom the others raise their hands and say, “I will follow you.”

Completing this assignment will give you some insight into how you can best motivate others to follow your vision as a leader.

Now, answer these questions from your perspective as a leader, considering the recommendations you have provided in the GROW model:

  • Personal Reflection:

 Why would others follow you as their leader? Explain.

  • Impact: 

How would you motivate them to pursue the vision you outline, not because you order them to do so, but because they want to do so enthusiastically on their own?

  • Feedback: 

Ask someone you trust and who can be objective, “What is my greatest asset as a leader?” In your journal, record the response and whether you agree or disagree and why.

Submit a Word document using double spacing, 12-point Times New Roman font, and one-inch margins. This assignment should be 1 to 2 pages in length and include references cited in APA format. Consult the Shapiro Library APA Style Guide for more information on citations.
