Option #2: Constructing Leadership Metaphors in Written Form

The notion that leadership study requires self-assessment – “locating oneself”– and introspection has been reinforced throughout this course.   The construct of metaphors advances thinking by quickly linking the left and right sides of the brain (Clouse, et al., 2013) [required reading]. 

The use of metaphors as a learning strategy, and especially as applied to leadership, is discussed in the Module 6 lectures and required readings.  This assignment’s requirements provide an opportunity to expand knowledge, apply concepts, and construct metaphors in the pursuit of better understanding leadership and ourselves as leaders.

There are two parts to this essay assignment:

Part I:

  • Review required reading and lecture material about purpose, construction, and use of leadership metaphors.
