My personal belief is that our differences are the things that bring us closer together, having a contrasting character makes you stand out. We each shape our own destiny and to take advantage of any situation in our lives, we have to view the different perspectives life gives us. Each person has a part in the shaping of others destiny’s. I always try to stay positive and encourage people to do the same, this way we encourage happiness. To serve others you need a favorable character, which I believe I posses.
1. LEADERSHIP This concept of leadership has made me not to be responsible to specific matters in my own department but also responsible for coordinating interaction with other departments both professionally and non-professional within the organization. It makes me not to be fearful of failure, change or confrontation from patient and colleagues. Adjustment is quickly made when failure is imminent, while trying to continue to make progress. It proves to me that respect is reciprocal, and it is what I must earn as a good leader.
This kind of leadership is imposed by power, dominating and fear of punishment. Normally they are suspicious of new ideas, except for their own and cautious of discussion. They retain control, use initiatives and focused by the need to achieve. To them, task and achievement is everything and failures is not an option. This qualities and characteristic fit well with the leadership style of Gen Sir Douglas
In society people depend on there leaders to make decisions that support the accomplishment of a common objective. Based on this notion, to some degree one can evaluate the success of a leader through the quantity of their followers. But I realized that the amount of followers does not constitute a great leader. Their can be instances where a leader is excellent in communicating to their followers things that they want to hear, which keeps them connected. However, at times leaders do not actually mean or do things that are expected of them.
My philosophy of leadership boils down to treating others as I would want to be treated. Being a positive influence for others and inspiring them to accomplish organizational and personal goals is the true definition of leadership. This approach will enable me to respond to the privilege of being a leader by building trust and honoring the Coast Guard’s core values of Honor, Respect, and Devotion to Duty. 2. There have been quite a few leadership influences over the last 21 years in the Coast Guard.
He states that virtue is an abstract concept and because of that it doesn’t have any real world consequences. Keeping that in mind virtue won’t be an adequate guide to being a politician. Machiavelli even defines it as receiving praise, not have a good moral compass. Doing what is morally right will gain you favor with the people that you’re ruling, but it may only last a short time if there are unforeseen consequences. A leader in charge of a large group of people needs to cast aside their personal moralities and think of the big picture.
These standards of behaviors are set by government, professional bodies, organizations and community groups. This is mainly because theses societies are in some part of the world valued. Being ethical gives you a source of motivation that provides a sense of satisfaction. When you feel like you are making a valuable contribution to the happiness and the wellbeing of others.

Authority does not have to be an actual figure, but rather can be a set of rules or an institution. It plays a pivotal role in the decisions and influence of the general public. Zimbardo makes it clear how dangerous authority can be, because many people choose to blindly follow instructions regardless of whether or not their morals line up. It is described in depth as an almost brainwashing like phenomenon, where those under authority feel somewhat of an obligation to obey, simply because of their position. While this alone is interesting, an even more intriguing topic discussed in the book is the fact that not only do those under authority feel obligated to comply with their leader’s ideas and suggestions, but if the authority figures change from good to evil, their follows will most likely change as well.

Manipulability is a very dangerous character trait because without having an opinion for oneself and being able to stand up for what is right and just, as displayed in Lord of the Flies, Samneric became pawns for those in charge. People that are manipulable and malleable are volatile to society. These types of people are influenced by their peers to adopt certain behaviours and follow trends which, in this novel, proved to cause instability. While manipulability was very dangerous, it demonstrated that there was no immediate danger to the
From the statement one can conclude that it is a leaders’ job to help people, in this case the citizens of America, feel safe and valued. This is why, I believe, strong leadership is the key to having a strong America because leaders are meant to help and make things comfortable and efficient for everyone.

In many cultures technology is considered unnecessary, and defies belief of staying within the guidelines of cultural backgrounds. The thought process is that by limiting exposure to technology keeps predators at bay. Societal acceptance is very hard to achieve in many areas, especially with the negative impacts that come with opening doors for technology growth. However, technology is not all negative; it can definitely improve processes, deliver communication at the speed of light, and offer easier more convenient methods. Depending on a culture’s aspect of what technology can offer as being successful or detrimental will be the determining factor in acceptance or rejection.
