By: Carolina Focella, Matt Kelly, Rama Mohamed and Brittany Bastedo Leadership and the Lion King! Main Characters Overview of the Movie Transformational Theory Rafiki, Timon and Pumbaa SIMBA!!!!!!!!!!! Connections to Service Learning Mufasa and Scar MUFASA-Father (Main Influence)
SCAR- Evil Uncle (Negative Influence)
SIMBA - The Hero; Main Protagonist
NALA - "The Love Interest"
Rafiki- Mentor and Guidance
Timon and Pumbaa- Sidekicks! The king of Pride Rock, Mufasa has a son, the pride comes together as they celebrate the grand birth of their future king. Simba, a young lion cub is told by his father that one day, the entire kingdom will be his. "Everything the light touches is ours". -Mufasa This however leave a bitter feeling for Mufasa's evil brother Scar who had intentions of his own to become king. As the young lion grows Scar realizes he must ask fast if he wants to be king. He set the young curious and ambitious young cub into trouble. And in just a few days scar tricks Simba into thinking he created a stampede causing his father death. Scar tricks Simba into running away and the pride thinking that they both died in the stampede. Scar is now king but not for long! Simba progesses through his journey and meets unforgettable friends that lead give him a new motto to live by until he reaches lion "Adulthood" where a small wake up call comes in, Nala finds Simba and although she is grateful he is alive, tells Simba of the horrible tragedy that has happened to Pride Rock. Reluctant to turn back to where his guilt still haunts him, Simba known he must turn back. He comes back to find the Pride Lands ruined. Simba challenges Scar and with the help of his buddies and the lions, Simba is able to claim his title as King, defeat the hienas and restore Pride Rock. Describes how leaders can initiate, develop and carry out significant changes in organizations. These leaders set out to empower followers and nurture them in change. SIMBA - the main protagonist. It starts with Muffasa leading Simba and ends with Simba becoming his own leader! He taught Simba how to be a leader. He didn't use force or manipulation instead Mufasa provided discipline and unconditional love. In the process Mufassa learned to be patient and understanding. Mufasa was willing to invest time and effort so that Simba could become a capable leader he was personally involved with his son.Simba faced tremendous challenges without the support of this father. His situation forced him to see that leadership was not about being brave. Leadership is not a display of power but a process of development and discipline which comes to be transformational.  Simba took upon his own father’s footsteps in order to get his motivation to get his contingent reward which was fighting and taking over his kingdom. Inspirational motivation – when simba had seen his father’s death before him & decided it was time to do his part of taking over his kingdom to win over Scar.Intellectual stimulation – simba challenged his own belief and values by standing his grown to take over his kingdom that he deserved. Individualized consideration && inspirational motivation - Mufasa tells Simba that he has forgotten who he is. He reminds Simba that he is the true king of Pride Rock. Simba, remembering who he was, returned to take charge of his kingdom. To become a leader, every man should be clear about his identity as a person. Only then will he understand his role in his life, and in the organization that he leads. Although Simba may not have realized it in the movie,
Rafiki, Timon and Pumba always had his best interests
and needs in mind. Rafiki always knew that Simba needed motivation for him to return to pride rock, it was then that he showed him his father in the river.

Timon and Pumbaa turned Simba away from being engulfed in his guilt of his father's death my presenting him with Hanuka Matata, Simba grows by this and later receives their support when he needs it most. In the Lion King the Transformational theory is performed by Mufassa and Scar. Both leaders initiate, develop and carry out significant changes amongst their pride (group). The leaders both create a vision that each individual within their pride can follow. Each lion or animal needs to know their role within the pride in order to achieve success. Mufassa, father of Simba understands the boundaries and jurisdictions of his pride. His leadership skills are displayed through many different ways for Simba to learn. Taught Simba how to be a leader, he never used for or manipulation instead he provides discipline and love. Mufassa invested time and effort so that one day Simba could become a great leader. Scar also displayed the Transformational/Transitional theory: his motives were he was selfish and dishonest; he had no concern for the lions or anyone else’s well being. His desire for power leads him to kill his own brother. Scar was not a great leader and had no vision for his followers to follow by. Towards the end of the movie the pride and savanna lacked the nutritional needs to survive. Scar was more concerned with his own position as king. Simba’s leadership is not displayed through power, but through a process of discipline and leaning the skills to be a great leader. Mufassa’s death helped in a sense that allowed Simba to find his own sense of identity and responsibility. Simba knew that Scar needed to be overthrown and he was willing to confrontation and uncertainty. Eventually he rose to show his true leadership skills that he acquired from following his father and listening to others. Lion King shows that in order to be a leader you must follow and serve others first. Psychology of Leaderhsip Final

Professor Woolston Nala’s role: She shows Transformational leadership because she motivates Simba because she found out the truth about what really happened to Simba’s father and tries to motivate him to return to Pride Rock. Transformational leadership is a process that changes and transforms people.
It is concerned with:
Long-term goals
It includes:
Assessing followers motives
Satisfying their needs
Treating them as full human beings
Transformational leadership involves an exceptional form of influence that moves followers to accomplish more than what is expected of them. It is a process that often incorporates charismatic and visionary leadership.
Transformational leadership is the process whereby a person engages with others and creates connection that raises the level of motivation and morality in both the leader and the follower. This semester I have accomplished many different goals and have acquired many different skills through the year. Through the Competency Assessment I have acquired communication skills amongst others whom I have worked with. Communicating with others I have accomplished many different tasks throughout my service learning project at Discovery 101 with my peers. Communicating others I have learned about them and how they complete tasks when working together with others. Through my service learning project I have learned how to work with others and use my new leadership skills when communicating with member during specific tasks. Brittany Rama Carolina Connection to Service Learning Nothing as dramatic as the lion king has really happened in my SL. But there was an incident one time where this girl had water spilled on her and she started crying. The counselor at the time went to see what was going on but she didn’t seem to care. So her exact words were “ I quit. I don’t know why she’s crying over water.” I was disgusted. She showed no leadership. So the girl’s sister went to comfort her and she had calmed down. The sisters represent Nala and Simba. Nala had simba’s back in the movie just like this little kindergartener had someone to comfort her. I have accomplished what I wanted to accomplish. At the beginning of my SL, I was intimidated of even trying to talk to these kids but as weeks went by; my eyes were opened to different things. I have grown as an individual and have learned a lot. My perspectives have grown as well. I learned to think before I speak. I learned that assuming will definitely get you nowhere. I went into this SL with an open mind knowing nothing of the outcome. I have never worked with kids before and now I love it. I have accomplished my goal of having a kid look up to me this semester. She’s the most adorable kid. Like I’ve stated before, each week I would go in with an open mind and go with the flow. I would go to a different table to sit at each time so I can know more about these kids. The more I spoke to them and vice versa, the more I gotten from them. Some made me laugh; some made my day; and others irritated me. I was known as “the sick lady” but I take pride in that name. At the beginning, I didn’t know what I was getting myself into. I was holding back and didn’t just want to throw myself in that environment all at once. I’ve gotten to know great people. It taught me a lot and showed me a lot as well. It was a great and an eye opening experience. It makes me look forward to becoming a Bonner. In Discovery 101, Transformational Leadership is definitely portrayed. The Bonner leaders motivate others to participate in activities. The Bonner leaders adapt to each individual’s situation and help meet the individual’s needs. They are role models to each volunteer in Discovery 101. In Discovery 101, I helped motivate the discovery students to participate in activities. I also socialized with multiple discovery students to find out how they are doing and I would adapt to their needs. This semester I improved in many aspects. I progressed with communication skills because I opened myself up to not only the discovery students, but also to the new people I have met. But, I still have much more to work on and hopefully I can master this skill. Because I feel I am a leader, I had to learn to show that I am a leader. So, a little bit at a time, I would open up and contribute to conversations. I absolutely loved Discovery 101. Even though the program would run a little late, everything was organized and well thought out. The one experience that I loved was “speed dating”. We would switch tables and write down everything we had in common with the discovery students. Getting to know all of them was a treat and I hope I can have this experience again. Many times I have seen the kids at Bradford be reminded of things so that they will learn. For example, when Rafiki hits Simba on the head, he tells him "you can either run from it or learn from it, and I feel this is indicitive of how the students are treated. When they dont pack up their bags before going outside, they are called back inside so that next time when they want to go out, they will remember to put their back packs away. Like all the characters in the movie for Simba, the kids are heavily influenced by the actions and words of their superiors. I loved everything about my service learning site. I grew as a leader this semester. I really wanted to get to know the kids and have a positive influence on them. I wanted to be able to learn a lot of their names and remember something about each of them and I did. I got to know all the kids very well and learn something about them. By the very last day I was helping 3 kids with their homework because they all wanted me to help them on my last day. Going to community service consistently helped me a lot and working with different kids as well. When working with the kids if something did not go through to them, I would try a different way to explain it to them. I learned that not every kid is the same but they are all the same in the fact that they love when we come to community service. I had many positive experiences and think its a great program the curriculum should keep because for some kinds this is the only time they get to have a break from their day or have a chance to give back. Although many may find it stressful or unnecessary, this is a one semester class that gives you more than any other class. The end! Thanks Everyone! Matt
