Your philosophy of service Your philosophy of service Presentation Transcript

  • Your Philosophy of Service Emerging Leaders Level I 2011
  • Purpose
    • This exercise will allow you to identify what service means to you, to understand how individuals define service differently and have different assumptions about what constitutes service.
      • Does it have to be a particular kind of activity or work?
      • Does it have to serve a specific group of people or classification of organization?
      • Does it have to have a distinct, identifiable goal or purpose?
  • Activity #1
    • Jot down some notes about your personal criteria for calling something service.
  • Activity #2
    • S tudy the list of 18 examples of Service carefully and place a “1” next to the action that most closely fits your personal philosophy of service. Place a “2” next to the action that is the second best fit, and so on, until every item up to 18 (or more, since there are blank lines included for additions) has a ranking.
  • Activity #3
    • In your group, compare each member’s rankings and discuss the differences and similarities. Develop a consensus on the rankings and a definition of service that is acceptable to each of you given your personal philosophy of service. In your discussion, consider how each member responded to the three questions listed above.
  • Service Categories
    • Activism/Advocacy (e.g. organizing a petition, a protest, or operation for a cause)
