Product Overview

This leadership exercise asks students to reflect on their family values and to begin to write them down. The exercise is useful in a leadership or career-management course when students need to consider their own values, assumptions, beliefs, and expectations about the way the world should be and then reexamine them. The exercise builds on the work of Mihalyi Csikszentmihalyi and his notion of transcender (the Evolving Self) and Richard Dawkins's concept of memes. The results of the exercise can be used as a springboard to discuss students' becoming transcenders as opposed to those who simply live out the values imprinted on them early in life. The exercise includes a table with examples to help students get started.
