Present you own personal 'n'characteristics of a great leader (n<10), stating each leadership quality and including a succinct description (narration, references, story, illustrations, etc.). A recommended format is one similar to the Augustine reading. The goals of this exercise are to reflect on the qualities of leadership and to define your personal leadership aspirations. Please emphasize your near-term, leadership goals for your career at MIT and beyond. Excellent responses will include in-depth, reflective narratives that demonstrate scholarly work including: reviewing the literature (the past), reflecting upon and discussing your own contributions and/or experiences (the present), and presenting your chosen qualities of leadership with a view to the future (present–future).
