Your Research Assignment
(From Prof. Quick)
Identity and Leadership Autobiography Assignment & Oral Presentation (70 points)
For this assignment, choose one identity that you have had since birth or prior to age 5. Analyze, illustrate, and process personal values and/or beliefs originating in this identity, and how each manifests in your leadership practice or how you believe it will manifest in your future leadership practice. This autobiography should be a narrative and interpretation about your life and leadership from within this identity culture. Be sure to go deep with your analysis! You are encouraged to utilize metaphors, artifacts (e.g., photos, themes), or other creative means to explore this identity, but be sure to stay focused on specifically describing and interpreting elements of one identity only.
Oral Presentation: (15 points)
Based on the autobiography you will present the identity and theory chosen to analyze. Summarize how you believe this identity is or will be helpful to your effectiveness as a leader and how it is or will be limiting to your effectiveness as a leader. Students will present in class addressing how their leadership theory helps us understand the student populations that have the same identity as chosen to study.
