Note: This Assignment is divided into two parts. This week, you will add to your Week 7 Assignment by completing Part 2 and submit your entire leadership profile in this week’s Assignment.

As you will recall from your Week 7 Assignment, in recognition of your growth as a leader, you have been given the opportunity to join a professional leadership network. As part of your membership, you must create a unique leadership profile that focuses on your passion and your purpose for leadership, as well as your goals. This is your opportunity to present your leadership reflections and perspectives to others in your network and to create connections that may lead to professional experiences in the future. Last week, you engaged in reflection and created the first part of your leadership profile, which focused on your perspectives on leadership and your leadership values. This week, you will focus on your passion and purpose for leadership.

    • How do you plan to (or currently) incorporate social responsibility and ethical decision making into your life and work?

What Is Your Passion and Purpose?

It is important for leaders or aspiring leaders to set goals and objectives, as well as help keep their organization focused. An important starting point is being able to define the passion and purpose for their organizations and themselves. Being able to share your story is an important leadership skill. As you review these resources, begin to think about your own passion and purpose. If you were to share your story, what would that look like?

Social Responsibility—Who’s Responsible?

Can you think of any organizations that have done tremendous harm to the environment, produced content that disenfranchised a group of people, or neglected the safety of employees or customers resulting in injuries or worse? Social responsibility, whether environmental impact or societal impact, is the duty of every organization. Leaders must ensure their organizations operate in a way that does no harm to others. Through these resources, you will examine the role of a leader in upholding social responsibility through an organization’s operations.
