  6. 6. I Am What I Was Made To Be The following essay is my autobiographical sketch where I describe how having loving parents, going to college, playing sports, and being the only boy have helped me develop into a persistent, hard working, dedicated, and mature person.
  7. 7. 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.
  8. 8. Leadership Feedback 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 improve on. “The ear of the leader must ring with the voices of the people” - Woodrow Wilson
  9. 9. Come Play Rugby Hello class, I am here to talk to you about joining the Lock Haven University Bald Eagle Rugby Team. We are an intramural Club Sport, which is sponsored by the school. If you join the team you will reap the benefits that many students on campus don’t. “The country is full of good coaches. What it takes to win is a bunch of interested players.” - Don Coryell
  10. 10. 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, and organization. “The best vision is insight.”- Malcolm Forbes
  11. 11. Service Project 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.
  12. 12. Relationship Empathy 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.
