In her book, Dare to Serve: How to Drive Superior Results by Serving Others, Cheryl illustrated her ethical leadership skills by developing organizational values (Bachelder, 2015). Thomas N. Barnes Center for Enlisted Education (BCEE) defines values as core beliefs regarding what is right and what is fair in terms of one’s actions and interactions with others (BCEE, 2017c, p. 4). Through a series of stakeholder meetings, Cheryl and her team developed six core principles that helped guide employees to achieve their collective purpose, “to inspire servant leaders to achieve superior results” (Bachelder, 2015).

According to the theory, the style of leadership I'm good at is suitable for followers with high readiness but lack confidence which long for encouragement and personal support (Daft,2015, p70). Dr. Petrock argues that most companies today focus on employees’ low productivity while the above all leadership problem is managers’ inadequate leadership skills (Hays, 1999, para4). This course shapes my theoretical knowledge and If I ever come across a similar situation, I will inspire members towards the broader vison instead of focusing on just the individuals. Leadership is a process of activities and relationships that people engage rather than a noun (Lambert, 1998, p18). I will explore leadership skills through textbook and leadership course to lay foundation firstly as a competent and hard-working person gets the approval and followers always follow those they respect (Parent, 2015.para8).
By advancing on into Graduate school, I can focus on strengthening the areas that needs more work such as enhancing my assessment skills.

I want to be seen as a good mentor to my followers and my supervisor. I will do this by integrating Coping Behavior and Cognitive Flexibility with my subordinates, peers, and supervisor by developing a good rapport with each of them. I know I can weaken those relationships if I do not mange my Coping Behavior because of miscommunication due to large cognitive gaps because I did not scan my environment.

For an example, to resolve customer complaints, my subordinates and I may have a different approach to dealing with complaints.

I learned that when I am attempting to complete a task for the company I try to please everyone. When working on the company business plan I know personally that I was trying to do the best that I could in order to make sure everyone was happy with the results. In the second semester I will work to improve this weakness by finishing a project how I see fit then asking for critique afterwards. Another weakness I battle with is being too critical of myself.
