Part five: Commitment & Concluding Thoughts (15 pts)

Leadership is hard work. It is challenging work. Once you’ve made the choice to lead, you can commit yourself further by telling someone else about what you decided to do and ask that person to hold you accountable to your plan.

1) Choose one (or more) classmate you can trust to keep you honest in executing your Leadership Development Plan. Tell that person what you plan to do, set aside a regular time to touch base on your progress, and ask her or him to just ask, “Did you do what you said you would do?”

Name How Can They Help You? Follow Up Date/Time

2) Share any concluding thoughts about the class and your leadership development journey this semester. For example, what assignments were most beneficial to your growth as a leader? What assignments were not helpful and what suggestions do you have for improving the course? Note: There will be no point deduction for offering constructive criticism.
