Reflection on Leadership as an Art
Student Name

Reflection on Leadership as an Art
The pillars of good leadership and good art lie in the capability to identify some aspect of
personal experiences without letting conceptions and thoughts about them be a distraction from
the senses. The capacity to set the stage in a way that encourages people to maintain their sanity is
a hallmark of both art and leadership (Hartanto et al., 2019). For this idea to work, however, we
need to assume that art is a set of circumstances whose aesthetic purpose is to help us perceive
some facet of the reality more directly via the senses and less through the notions and beliefs about
this facet of the world. For instance, from my assessment, I realized that I have strong abilities in
the research and analysis self-assessment component, while my abilities are developing in the
strategic and planning self-assessment component. In the research and analysis self-assessment
component, I demonstrated developing ability in methodology and technical expertise and strong
abilities in data integration and computation. On the strategic and planning self-assessment
component, I demonstrated strong abilities in role alignment, project management, and resource
monitoring, whereas I demonstrated developing abilities in progress monitoring. The combination
of strategic planning, research, and analysis abilities in the art of leadership acts as a foundation to
perceive the aspects of leadership directly through senses rather than beliefs and concepts when
carrying out a project with my colleagues.
In this self-assessment, I also demonstrated developing abilities in curiosity and inquiry,
communication and consultation, campus context, and industry context. In the curiosity and
inquiry element, I demonstrated strong ability in issue clarity and stakeholder impact and
developing abilities in question formation and historical context. In the communication and
consultation self-assessment component, I demonstrated strong abilities in delivery type and
follow-up and developing abilities in audience and interpretation. Under the campus context, I

demonstrated developing abilities in student information and programs and initiations and strong
abilities in strategic planning and campus mission. Under the industry context, I demonstrated
developing abilities in news and events, sector knowledge, functional knowledge, and student
The developing and emerging skills will require a set of actions to help me gain more
experience in these abilities. The set of actions that I seek to implement in my day-to-day routine
to gain the required experience will include improving my awareness and having an explicit selfconcept through cross-monitoring my emotions, thoughts, and physical sensations. Mastering the
art of leadership and developing related abilities will require mastering the conceptual art concepts
in leadership. For instance, in my assessment, the developing abilities that I need to gain more
experience in include abilities in curiosity and inquiry, communication and consultation, campus
context, and industry context. Gaining experience in curiosity and inquiry results fro...
