Leadership Defined: My Personal Philosophy and Style of Leadership
Defining and developing your philosophy and style of leadership provides an opportunity for candidates to reflect on
their own beliefs and activities about education and leadership. This assignment requires you to take a deep look at
your strengths, skills, behaviors, etc. It is important for you to examine your beliefs about educating students and
leading stakeholders.
Step 1: Introduction – Create a meaningful introduction to your paper. You may wish to include a quote or something
to grab the attention of your reader. Your introduction should focus on the following ideas: Educational Philosophy,
Definition of Leadership, Leadership Philosophy and discuss the major leadership types and styles (autocratic,
democratic, servant, transformational, etc.) with a clear explanation and identification of your leadership style.
Step 2: Educational Philosophy – Personal Stance Toward Education. In this section of the paper, you will discuss
your core beliefs about teaching and learning. Be sure to identify your specific educational or teaching philosophy.
What type of instructional designs and which types of learning experiences make the greatest impact on students? How
should a school integrate special education (all aspects from gifted education to self-contained) into its overall
curriculum? What technology (include technology tools and applications in the discussion) should a school use to
deliver instruction, to support instruction, and how?
Step 3: Leadership Types and Styles – Briefly discuss at least three different leadership styles (transformational,
servant, distributive, etc.) You may have to conduct a little research for this section. Also discuss the importance of
specific leadership skills.
Step 4: Leadership Philosophy – Specifically address your personal beliefs about educational leadership. Include
educational leadership activities and initiatives that you have been involved with and the impact and influence that you
have had concluding with your future aspirations. Begin this component of the paper with a clear discussion about your
core beliefs about leadership in education. Be sure to pull aspects from the questionnaires (leadership style, leadership
skills, leadership strengths) into your response. You may wish to use the following guiding questions to completely
develop this section of the paper.
Beliefs About Educational Leadership
What are my beliefs about educational leadership in P12 schools? Why do I hold these beliefs? Who or what has most
informed my leadership approaches? How have my beliefs been influenced by my experiences as an educator and/or
scholarly literature related to leadership? What difference do I hope to make as a leader? What does it mean to be a
good leader in the P12 context?
Educational Leadership Activities and Initiatives
What educational leadership activities, practices and initiatives have I implemented? How do these align with my
beliefs? When have I felt most engaged and affirmed as an educational leader? What are my key strengths and skills as
a leader? What am I most proud of? What sets me apart? What are some of my accomplishments as a post-secondary
leader?
Impact and Influence
What difference have I made, and how do I know? What has been the impact and influence of my educational
leadership (on me, on students, on colleagues, on my department, on my faculty, on the institution and beyond)? What
have others learned from my leadership approaches?
Step 5: Summary and Conclusion – This section should provide a summary statement for the paper. Briefly restate
your core beliefs about both education and leadership. End with a discussion of your future aspirations. How will I
continue to develop, grow, and improve as a leader? What interests me most about teaching and learning in postsecondary education? What changes do I most hope to see and inspire? What are my future goals and aspirations as a
leader in post-secondary education?
