Conference Theme: Mirror on the Wall
At the 2017 Southern Collegiate Leadership Conference we will be exploring the intersection of leadership and reflection. Who am I as a leader, and what is my leadership identity? Self-reflection is an important practice that permits us to learn from leadership experiences, and deep contemplation of new information can enhance our leadership capacity. Self-reflection allows a leader to better understand their personality type, leadership style, personal values, strengths and weaknesses in the context of leading others. However, the leader mustn’t become too fixated in the mirror to the neglect of meeting the needs of followers, understanding context or engaging in collaborative leadership. Understanding self and focusing on others must be held in tension, otherwise we may find ourselves asking the same question as Disney’s evil queen: “Mirror, mirror on the wall who is the greatest leader of them all?”
