This is a state where the whole is said to be greater than the sum of the parts: the team now has synergy. Members are prepared to extend themselves for their colleagues and for the team. There is rapport and team members are much closer to each other. Task skills and interpersonal skills are excellent. The teaming principles have been internalized and become an integral part of the way the team operates.
The leadership theory I would like to reflect on is servant leadership theory. Northhouse (2013) servant leadership theory reflects on similar characteristics as authentic leadership. Northhouse (2013) discussed how empowering and ethical servant leaders are with their associates. The characteristics of servant leadership that is similar to authentic leadership would be conceptualization, building community, healing and empathy. As for the characteristics of the authentic leadership approach, it is listed as establishing trusting relationships with others, understanding the purpose, having strong values in doing the right thing (ethically) and being enthusiastic about their assignment (Northhouse, 2013).
The use of structured reflection is central to sustain and enhance professional and personal effectiveness. How do leadership characteristics and strengths impact your definition? The leadership characteristics that resonate with me are empathy, consistency, honesty, flexibility, communication, and conviction. These characteristics have influenced my perspective of what it entails to be an effective leader and reflective practitioner. Creating a sincere
Effective leaders bring out the best in others: A great leader leverage off the best qualities from the people around them and challenge them to improve with confidence to achieve their personal goals. 2. The best leaders inspire with their words and actions: Great leaders lead by example and would not expect others to do what they are not prepared to do themselves. They appeal to people’s emotions, using images, stories, metaphors, and other ways that move people to action in achieving common goals. 3.
Jack Welch’s standards of a good leader do cover the bases of the HEAD, HEART, and FEET analogy. His epitomes were that a leader should have positive energy, passion, and integrity, which all fall under the HEART part of the analogy. He looks for the ability to execute plans and skill to energize others to do more, which fall under the FEET category of the analogy. He also believes a leader should be intelligent. Not just book smart but, intelligence with a strong emotional component.
Now days good leaders seem to be few and far between in our political atmosphere. Those in power who are not fit to lead tend to be overzealous in their planning, lie about their previous actions, or disregard the needs of their people. Their inability to be capable leaders is mainly due to the lack of a character trait which is imperative in successful leadership: humility. Humility is required in traits such as being slow to anger, displaying patience, and being teachable by others. Each of these attributes stems from being humble, in lowering one’s ego below that of their followers, and is compulsory in a strong leader.
The model consists of four supportive/directive styles (S1-S4) and D1-D4, inclusive of ‘S1 directing/telling and D1, low competence, high commitment’, which requires high levels of direction, with minimal support offered, ‘appropriate in situations where followers lack competence, and therefore need to be shown how to do something, but are enthusiastic and committed’, but when competence/confidence is achieved followers ‘can resent being subject to what will begin to feel like an autocratic leadership style. Leaders need to adapt accordingly’.‘S2 coaching/selling and D2’ is a combination of high direction/support with followers having ‘some competence but a lower level of commitment’ and require ‘direction and supervision because they are still relatively inexperienced’. The third form is ‘S3 supporting/encouraging and D3 of high confidence but variable commitment’, which requires minimal directive behaviour, and elevated levels of supportive behaviour. ‘S4 is delegating/empowering and D4 of high confidence and high commitment’ requiring low directive and support offered via the facilitator (Harvey ,

The skills one would need to embody to be a good leader is someone who has a set of personal ethics that ensures leadership, takes charge and uses, and doesn’t abuse, their power, but is also liked by their followers. Leadership roles are best performed with a good set of ethics. Aristotelian virtues are the best set of ethics that a leader can have. These virtues or ethics are: courage, temperance, generosity, magnificence, magnanimity, ambitious, patience, truthfulness, carism, friendliness, modesty, and righteous indignation. If a leader is courageous and generous, they would step up to the call of duty, but also respect and give to their following.
Within our peaceful mind we can present ourselves to the world and others with positive vibes and create positive energy all around. With a peaceful mind we will create a path for good experiences. Meditation is the key for transforming the mind. I think meditation places a big part in the opening lines of the Dhammapada. Buddhist meditation practices focuses on techniques that develop and encourage concentration, emotional positivity, clarity and a calm seeing and insight of the true nature of things.
Through the Summer Urban Health Fellowship, I will be able to understand the health disparities within communities allowing me to help my community medically one day to the best of my abilities. I want to gain new knowledge of the health disparities communities like where I come from, face. Currently, I am taking a class on the health in the Latino/Chicano population.

The Transformational Leadership theory states that this process is by which a person interacts with others and can create a solid relationship that results in a high percentage of trust, that will later result in an increase of motivation, both intrinsic and extrinsic, in both leaders and follower. Rules and regulations are flexible, guided by group norms. These attributes provide a sense of belonging for the followers as they can easily identify with the leader and its purpose. There are certain skills a leader must acquire to lead and delegate properly. Respect is one thing that must be displayed, just because one is a leader it does not mean they have all the power and authority over any individual.
