Abstract

This leadership exercise asks students to reflect on their family values and to begin to write them down. This is useful in a leadership or career management course when you want them to consider their own values, assumptions, beliefs, and expectations about the way the world should be and then to re-examine them. This note builds on the work of Mihalyi Csikszentmihalyi and his notion of ''transcender'' (The Evolving Self) and John Dawkins'' concept of ''memes''. The results of this exercise can be used as a springboard to discussion about becoming a ''transcender'' as opposed to a person who simply lives out the values imprinted on them early in life. The note presents a table with examples to help students get started.
