Introduction Leadership is the art of empowering people around you to achieve a goal. As a leader I want to help others become leaders themselves. I firmly believe that by leading based on my values this will be accomplished. I have had many leadership influences throughout my career. Some of them showed me the way I wanted to someday lead and others showed me exactly how not to.
As a leader, this was wrong because a leader should be rational and able to understand what is the whole objectives that the team should complete (Bedell-Avers, Dzieweczynski, Hunter & Tate 2011). Hence, I learned that it is best to discuss with the team at the beginning what is the whole picture that team should have in mind rather than to be jumping to the conclusion that the given information is right or wrong. Moreover, from the first attempt, I learned that in a team development, a leader can use different leadership styles to direct the team to attain the goal because there were multiple situations that require various types to handle it. For example, I had experience that in the discussion, I should participate by providing inputs and suggestions but when making a decision I have to choose the final as in the simulation if the leader has made a decision before the members, it will become the final decision for the whole group. This was difficult for me as there was the pressure of making a mistake.
Leadership is giving people the confidence they need. Like creating a picture for them and helping them reach their goal. To be a leader you need to think of others first, before you think of yourself. Being able to step up and making people reach their potential is leadership. Leadership is giving others the motivation to reach their goals and be successful and stepping up and inspiring people to do their best.
If people did not have grit, they would be give up on their goals very easily, and they would not better the society because of it; it is because humans have grit that we have become this advanced of a species. In conclusion, grit, to me, means persevering and following your passion for long-term goals no matter how laborious it is; grit can be connected in my personal life, the arts such as the movie, The Karate Kid, and the world around me including real-world individuals such as Elie Wiesel. Have you ever wondered what would happen if you hadn’t given up on that long-term goal? You could have bettered society or at least bettered yourself. Have you ever wondered what life would be like if Edison or Wiesel had given up?
The strongest teams are when each group member understands their own strengths and weaknesses well. Unfortunately, it is not easy to honestly evaluate one’s strengths and weaknesses but there are assessments such as; True Color that provide insight. After taking the True Color and Clifton Strengths finder assessment, I realized the best way for me to cultivate a positive team environment is clearly understanding my role within the group early-on, providing a logical perspective for decisions, and identifying others strengthens and weakness so we can offset one another. Additionally, Leader-Membership-Exchange theory, known as LMX, is important towards establishing a successful team. The combination of all these elements result in teams achieving their goals.
But first, you should have clarity of your own identity and knowledge. Once you have your own foundation with being a leader, I think that as a leader you can transition and understand the behavior of others that may be on your team. When acknowledging others on the team, I think that it is important to identify strengths and weaknesses of others and the team. As you can see, I have outlined what I believe makes a great and effective leader. My philosophy paper will help guide my actions, behaviors, and thoughts.
How does this idea apply to building positive habits? Being self-aware is an important initial step in taking control of your life, producing what you want, and becoming proficient in your future. Where you will end up in life will be determined by where you will choose to concentrate your energies, feelings, personality, and
When stress is high, resources limited, results not satisfying it is easy to give up, but only very strong leaders keep reminding themselves who they believe they are and keep on striving for their goal, while trying to improve their limited characteristics and abilities. Some may think that if you are a leader you don’t have a right for a mistake or a failure, but not me. As a leader I am lacking the ability to delegate the task and/or responsibility to others. I would like to mention that this is not a one-time failure, I come face-to-face with this challenge repeatedly. It is an important factor in leadership which is the sign of strength, but whenever I passed on the work to others for the most of the time I have been disappointed.
What does it mean to be a “good leader?” Leadership is easily defined: it is “the process of influencing people by providing purpose, direction, and motivation while operating to accomplish the mission and improve organization.” However, a good leader is not so simple to put into words. In my opinion, a good, effective leader is someone who is competent in their job, intelligent, compassionate, has sound judgement and good morals, and is empathetic. They are not afraid to step up and take charge of a situation but are also willing to listen to others and be open to new ideas. No one can know everything, and a good leader should be able to ask others for help when they need it. They are always looking for improvement within themselves and those
I don't agree with either of these two opinions, however, I believe that to achieve success needs a full preparation including a final goal, confidence, features such as perseverance and hard-working, instead of focusing on opportunity only or people themselves. I strongly believe that these well-preparation pave the way to achieve success, and those people who with good features will achieve success sooner or later. Only if you are well-prepared, can you catch the opportunity to make it successfully. First of all, if you want to come out
