Prior to attending the residency, you will write and submit a personal reflection on the personal and professional contexts that have shaped your identity .
Step 1: Critical Analysis
Create a graphic organizer to build a list of the academic theorists and journal articles you remember most vividly from your academic studies and professional practice. Note any key points about these academic theorists or journal articles.
Step 2: Critical Evaluation
Based on the lists you created in Step 1, build on your graphic organizer to address the following:
Explain which academic influences have shaped your thinking regarding your field of study. Describe two primary theorists from your prior academic or professional studies that have influenced your worldview. Evaluate one aspect of the theorists’ work that has had specific relevance, power, and behavioral practices that have resulted in your professional practice.
Step 3: Critical Synthesis
Write a 750- to 1050-word personal reflection paper.
Include the following in your paper:
Use your analytical and evaluative work from Step 1 and Step 2, to explain how your professional and personal contexts have shaped your identity. Specify one leadership practice from each of the three leadership paradigms (traditional, emerging, and non-dominant) in LDR/711A that you are going to demonstrate within PHL/700R. Note. These leadership practices must be at the behavioral level, such that other in class will be able to see or hear you demonstrating these actions.
Note. The theoretical framework will include primarily books, scholars, and well-known professionals. Personal references, such as family or religious inspiration, are often too individualized for the purposes of this assignment and course; however, if these influences play a significant role in your practice and in your continuing engagement with doctoral studies, they are appropriate for inclusion. Exercise judgment in your choices for this assignment.
Format your personal reflection paper consistent with APA guidelines.
Submit your graphic organizers and paper prior to the start of Workshop One.
