INTRODUCTION The purpose of this report is to assess my progress in leadership development throughout the semester, and measure my progress toward my SMART goals. The report will begin by describing the progress of my SMART goals. Then it will describe the leadership experiences from this semester as well as lessons learned. The report will summarize evaluations from my mentor and peers and close with my six month and one year development plan. SMART GOAL PROGRESS In this section, I will discuss the semester’s progress toward my original goals. For each goal, I have provided sub points for the original goal, description of progress, and lessons learned (if I failed). The next steps in my leadership plan will be discussed in a later section. Goal 1-Air Force Rank: Goal : My first and most important goal was to increase my ranking amongst Air Force cadets to the top 25%. I failed this overall goal. Following my initial methods to do this, I set goals to be active, increase preparation, and get to know the cadets. Specifically, I planned on attending all informal cadet meetings and being prepared for them, joining Arnold Air Society, and attend informal gatherings like Friday dinners. Description of Measurable Progress : I completed all objectives as stated. Being ranked under the top 25% was therefore due to misallocating my time and not fully researching my goal. While peer ranking usually counts as a major portion of our overall score, the ranking system used was different. It was a special circumstance for the competitiveness of Air Force Field 2

Training. Another critical area I failed to research was degree type, which significantly hurt my chances. Lesson Learned : A major problem for these objectives was that I did not verify their usefulness. As I will discuss later, I used my mentor mainly for academic discussion. However, General Walsh would have been instrumental in assisting me to modify my goals. I could have also asked my commanding officer who I used as a mentor in my MAN 325 project. Goal 2-Pledge Training Partnership: Goal: My second goal was to successfully run several pledge activities as one of my fraternity’s pledge trainers. These activities were successful. Having high “Input” strength, I partnered with another brother high in “Discipline” to encourage my ideas to be carried out. Description of Measurable Progress: Pledgeship ended two weeks ago, but my ideas were put in place. I was able to complete the activities the way I intended, although they cannot be disclosed due to the secrecy of Sigma Chi. However, the affect I had on our pledges and the visibility gained through our chapter prompted my nomination as our next semester’s head pledge trainer. I turned it down, but will remain a strong candidate in the next election (see DEVELOPMENT PLAN section). Goal 3-Effective Planning:
