This was my final portfolio of work for my master's degree at St. Catherine.I can't figure out how to attach all the documents, but I'm still intertested in posting the core of the portfolio here. It explains my leadership philosophy, which I think is important.

Leadership Portfolio

  1. 1. My Path, My Pack Lisa Graham-Peterson Join me on my leadership June 2009 journey and follow the pack hierarchy below. Two Wolves Parable Alpha Beta Omega References Appendix
  2. 2. Alpha The first steps forward by a wolf pack are made by the alpha couple. I made my first steps in this leadership journey by looking within and looking around. From this, I found my leadership philosophy and metaphor. You can read about them here.
  3. 3. Beta Beta wolves are not out front, but they are not secondary. They carry great responsibility, often playing a pivotal role in scouting for new nesting territories or supporting complex hunting strategies. Beta wolves are considered as critical to the survival of the pack as the alpha pair. I consider understanding where I’ve been and uncovering who I am as a leader as critical to my leadership trek as those first few alpha steps. Read more here. My Path My Profile
  4. 4. Omega The omega wolf is often portrayed as the weakest member, but there is no such role in a wolf pack. Everyone contributes. Omega wolves provide a valuable stress relief for the pack, often playing the clown. It is not uncommon for an omega to be left in charge of the pups – the next generation of the pack – when all the others are out on a hunt. Where do I demonstrate the unlikely leadership quality? Where is my next contribution? How can I ensure life-long learning as a leader? My future path is only partly written. Read it here.
  5. 5. Two Wolves: A Native American Parable Author Unknown An old Cherokee is teaching his grandson about life. “A fight goes on inside me,” he said to the boy. “It is a terrible fight and it is between two wolves. “One is evil. He is anger, envy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority, and ego.” He continued, “The other is good. He is joy, peace, love, hope, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion, and faith. The same fight goes on inside you. And inside every other person, too.” The grandson thought about it for a minute and then asked his grandfather, “Which wolf wins?” The old Cherokee simply replied, “The one you feed.”
