Submit a 10 page paper in which you present your current personal leadership framework. A leadership framework is an organized set of ideas that help you understand the roles of leaders and followers in different leadership situations so that you can perform your own leadership and follower roles, help others to perform their leadership and followership roles, develop yourself and others for leadership and followership, and think critically about what you read and hear about leadership and followership from this day forth. Your work especially should reflect sensitivity to the ethical dimension of leadership. You should also take the context of leadership into account in terms of how it supports or limits leaders and followers and how it might impact ethical decision making and conduct. This paper does not mean that you are merely to summarize the course content. On the contrary, it means that you should give evidence of having thought critically about the major issues and concepts you have encountered in this course. For example, if you incorporate something you learned this semester, explain why you find the idea(s) particularly useful. Similarly, you should explain why you have rejected a major idea(s), if you do so. You also should inductively develop ideas about leadership and followership that reflect your engagement with the course content. You may consult journal and other sources beyond those you have been assigned during the semester to support your paper. This paper should be a statement of how you think about leadership now based on what you have read, observed or heard this semester. It should reflect your ideas. It should be a statement of what you think about leadership that you can actually live by for the near term as you gain more experience and knowledge. It should be a useful guide to you in future leadership situations, and it should be something you would be proud to give to someone who knows nothing about leadership. It should have the potential to help someone else
