Students are presented with a professional perspective of leadership this serves as a guideline. Defining what makes a leader and breaking the myth that leaders are not born it is learned. I did not ask what makes a good leader that would consist of opinion, I wanted to present principles. It required students to take an honest look at their principles from basic living to leading others. This really applies to people who are marginalized the fact that there are principles and guidelines that can cover many aspects of leadership.

Marginalized groups many times have vacillating morality the problem is not what is right or wrong the answer is what works. This assignment also helps students with understanding those leaders that fall short of their role. I required students to ask themselves what kind of leader they are now and how does it compare with the principles. Ask the question will their method of leadership work to get the best out of people.   Each student has a chance to take a leadership role the only way to know what kind of leader you would make you have to lead. Receiving feedback from the people you have led gives different perspectives.
