Connections with books
"You will be known by your word and your actions". The Mentor Leader, Tony Dungy, Page 123. This class has helped me realize that you need to watch what you say and how you act because people are always watching you, especially young kids. If you say something that you know you shouldn't of said, then the kids that heard you say it will think its okay to say and they will repeat it. Same with your actions, if you do something then kids will see you do it and repeat you.
"The mentor leader looks at how he or she can benefit others which ultimately benefits the individual and the organization." The Mentor Leader, Tony Dungy, Page 21.
You have to look at the people around you and see if what you are doing is helping them or just helping yourself.
"Take care of the little things and the big things will take care of themselves." The Sacred Acre, Mark Tabb, Page 13Saying that if you help others, then good things will happen to you. Doing the small things for people will result in greater outcomes for you.
Pre and Post
Summary of how it changed my life for the future
I will use this later in life in my career. By leading people and not following them. It has also gave me an idea of maybe going into an education career or just working with younger kids in some way. I enjoy working with them and the joy they have when you are around.
Leadership applied in life
Being involved in the leadership class has given me and showed me a lot of different opportunities to be a leader. I have helped with many different projects and events around the school. I enjoy being involved in them and planning them. It makes me feel like I can have my own input in what is going on and what happens with them.
