Instructions: There is no paper for this course. You will instead keep a leadership journal consisting of 27 entries based mostly on exercises and assessments. The goal of this journal is to complete your personal assessment, reflection, and improved self-awareness. The more you put into it, the more you will get out of it, and the higher grade you will receive. The first submission, due in Week 2, is to allow you to get initial and early feedback. The final journal is due in Week 7. Some assessments are in the book and some are not.
The journal project is worth 240 total points. You will journal and submit your entry at the end of Weeks 2 and 7. The Week 2 journal is to allow you to receive instructor feedback so you can make any changes to your initial journal and increase your chances of earning an excellent grade on the final journal submission due in Week 7.
Please carefully read the Leadership Class Journal Requirements and follow the instructions for formatting your journal and the requirements for your journal entries. You will find the details for your journal entries due in Week 2 and the journal entries due in Week 7.
