I never before believed that respect and criticism would go together, but now I understand know several ways that they do. First, leaders need to respect the efforts of others in order to criticise them in an effective way, and secondly, when receiving criticism people need to respect that there are changes that need to be made in order to be better. Overall the marching band has taught me many lessons that I will carry with me throughout my life, and the three that stand out to me are having the ability to display positivity to help make it through anything, how to serve others as a leader and when it won’t be seen, and respecting things other than people, for example, the efforts of others and criticism. I consider these three lessons to all help build up my character, which was also greatly shaped by band, and will never be the
The opportunity of creating and planning events to improve the experience of student athletes is a huge draw to a career in event management for me. There is still so much for me to learn in the area of event management, interviewing Seth was invaluable. I hope to continue to develop a relationship with him and soak in all of his knowledge and experience in the field. Seth told me that at the end of his career he wants to be able to say that he never cheated or sold out, that he was always in it for the student athletes and coaches, not for just a paycheck. I would like to say some of the same things about my
All year around I practiced and I could see myself get better but I didn't know if I was good enough to compete in high school basketball. Finally, freshmen year tryouts came, and this year I was confident in my ability but I was also nervous because we had to tryout in front of coaches and upperclassmen I didn't know. Tryouts lasted three days at the end the coaches announced who made the team. The new coach called my name and I slowly walked up to him hoping I was going to make the team. He first said “congratulations you made the team”, a smile slowly started to come on my face and I could barely hear what he said after because I was so happy.
The coaches wanted to try something new in an attempt to gain some leadership in the weight room well before the start of our regular season. I was as much excited, as I was nervous. Knowing I was the man that would be held to a higher standard than the rest gave me a sense of dignity and pride. Afraid to let anyone down, I made it my personal responsibility to take charge.
However, having past members exemplify leadership skills and Ms. Ryan’s guidance, I was lucky to learn from them and used those skills as I served as a section leader for two years. Being someone that people depend on can be challenging at first. Now you aren’t only responsible for yourself, but ten other people. The memorization of the drill with the music, bringing essential items
These coaches help the athletes throughout the whole entire year, they help you reach the next level, they are concerned about feelings and the way they are doing in school. Not saying that high school coaches don’t do the same, but they don’t take it as serious. High school coaches are there to win games and get payed is what it seems like
This song was so inspiring that it was played multiple times in schools and colleges in order to motivate students so they can seize their opportunities and do well in their academic career. Even though there are many motivational songs around the world but, "Lose Yourself" is by far the most inspiring song in the world. The main reason why this song truly matters to me is because it helped me as well as the whole country to stay strong and
I was devastated, all that work just thrown out the window. I contemplated quitting, but instead I took what life threw at me and became the best hitter on that team, earning my spot. I still wanted to be a setter so I worked everyday after school, getting lessons and practicing on my own time in order to improve my skill, though I was faced with a challenge. The next year I made the bold choice to move to a better club and luckily I got on a top team as a setter. This is just one of the many instances that my incredible determination provided me with greater opportunities.
Unfortunately, two of group members were not responsible enough to do their tasks on time. It is obvious that in group work, one having problem can easily affect the goals of a group. As a leader, to deal with this problem, I tried to urge them with a constructive and positive manner. Since we have a lot of assignments together with this group task, I know that if I gave them the negative attitude, I would break the comfortable working environment. Furthermore, if needed, I also helped them complete the work by giving some directions to solve out the tasks and finding information to support them.
I should be captain because I 'm very hard working and I put in a lot of dedication , I make sure that when given a task I get it done, and I have so much school spirit in me that I would love to show my coaches and my team. Another reason why I should be captain is because I 'm ready for new challenges in cheer and I feel like captain would be a very good challenge for me to achieve. Being a captain might be hard but I 'm ready to take on the responsibility. I know I will be a really good captain, and I know I got what it takes to be captain, and i’m ready to show it to the whole
Although this experience was not a pleasant one, I learned a lot about how to deal with people and what it means to be a leader. Through my experiences in leadership positions, I have learned many lessons. I have learned when to ask people for help, when I could not get the person in my group to corporate or at least not cause problems I went to my band director and counselor and we made an action plan do that she was please and felt like she was contributing. I have learned when to take a stand and do what I know is right. And I have learned that small actions can make a big impact and even change the
