To promote holistic development in Chinese university students in Hong Kong, a general education subject entitled “Tomorrow’s leaders” was developed and has been fully implemented in the new four-year university curriculum since 2012. In this chapter, the Onion model is used as a framework for conducting systematic teacher reflection to enhance professional development. Challenges and issues central to the environment, behavior, competencies, beliefs, identity, and mission, as experienced and observed by a teacher of a leadership and positive youth development subject in Hong Kong are discussed. Issues include the Hong Kong education environment, the impact of reinforcement and the role of culture in teaching and learning, as well as postulations on leadership and human development. The chapter concludes with implications of the core reflection on my personal development.
