An Exercise of Self Examination That Exposes Societal Influences on Diversity Leadership
Webster-Smith, Angela
International Journal of Educational Leadership Preparation, v3 n1 Jan-Jun 2008
Leadership programs routinely offer candidates self-assessment instruments such as the Myers-Brigg Type Indicator to help them identify their probable leadership traits, leadership styles and other personality constructs. One routinely overlooked yet crucial component of school leadership programs is self examination that includes the development of intellectual and ethical attributes that transcend administrative tasks, namely their social attitudes. Professors of educational leadership are compelled to offer students perspective-taking opportunities that unearth weighty and influential dispositions and attitudes that are not consonant with 21st century school leadership. This manuscript offers an internship activity that helps programs to meet NCATE Standard 4 but also affords students an opportunity to delve into their interior life to assess whether their inner realities are based on truth or socialization.
