Lee Management 355: Leadership and Change in Organizations Self-Reflection and Leadership Action Plan – Part 1 I chose to interview my mom and club soccer coach because I know they will tell me how it is as well as knowing me at my best and worst times. While hearing my strengths from them, I also inquired what they felt my weaknesses were as a leader. A recurring theme showcasing my strengths came from my interactions on the soccer pitch. I am unsurprised with this theme because this setting is where I have found I am truly myself. Recognizing that I was truly myself on the soccer field when I was younger, I incorporated that to become the confident person I am today. My three strengths are my gregarious personality; ability to see the whole picture and simultaneously be detail orientated; and remaining calm during stressful situations. In general, I know I am outgoing and friendly because I love meeting new people, but I didn’t see it as a strength – I saw it more as a part of my personality.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
