What A Leader Should Be
My leadership philosophy is simple.
Leaders should challenge people, build
up their confidence, and coach them. To
do this a leader needs to have superior
communicating skills and be able to see,
describe, and pursue what's possible.
The best way to better your skills is by getting feedback
from the people who are around you. Of course if they
aren’t honest with you and don’t give proper feedback
you wont get anything out of it and there will be no
chance to improve your skills. During this lab we were
asked to give yourself feedback and then get feedback
from two of our peers compare them and then see if you
were accurate, and where the areas are that you need to

My Keys To Success
I am majoring in Sport Administration and getting a minor in Coaching.
The Sport Administration major curriculum is based on the National
Association for Sport and Physical Education (NASPE)
guidelines. Students in this major complete a field experience as the
culmination requirement of the program with an emphasis on the
administration of athletic programs and activities, or an emphasis on
sport business, marketing, leadership, and coaching. For me I feel that it
is best to take a step back and look at what I stand for. I feel that the most
important things to me are hard work, trust and loyalty, positive attitude,
“The best vision is insight.”- Malcolm Forbes
Always make a creative title and give
your thesis in an abstract…what you did
and what you learned…in the body you
can describe how you did project
management or how the project or even
was managed…show what you learned
and what you did for your client.
I feel that showing empathy towards the people
you meet is very important. It shows that you
care about what the person is saying and that
you are a good listener. Also, by showing
empathy you give people a sense of
confidence and they will also show confidence
in you. I will use empathy in the future to get a
feel for what people have gone through so I
can better relate to them and build stronger
and more secure friendships.
