Why are they important to a person’s potential for becoming an effective leader? In your answer, please use examples and observations, as well as appropriate references to the reading. Mediators of Self-Concept in Environmental Influence
The aspects of environment covered in the reading assignment have much to do with the type of self-concept children develop. A positive self-concept is, of course, not the only determinant of how likely it is that a person will function effectively in a position of leadership. However, it is reasonably clear that people who are deprived of significant opportunities to develop a healthy self-concept are far less likely to become leaders (or to function effectively should they do so). The types of environments in which children find themselves can certainly make a difference in how they view themselves as prospective leaders. They also constitute an important mechanism for feedback, evaluation, and reinforcement from other people in shaping their self-confidence, self-efficacy, and motivation to exercise influence in the performance of group and organizational tasks.
