This is true of the self as well. If one does not inspire themselves to greatness, then it will never be achieved, nor will the individual’s purpose be uncovered. Leading oneself requires knowing your purpose or vocation because it is what ultimately “guides your [self-leadership] journey” (Professional Development Training, 2013). The self-leader has the choice, lead with purpose to reach the ultimate goal or attempt to continue without such a guiding
In that, just like traveller choses his or her path and transport mode which he or she thinks is suitable for him or her. In leadership, a person makes up his vision or goal and determine what kind of leadership philosophy, he or she can use to achieve that vision. However, the leader should not to expect that things will always work smoothly. Barrier and challenges will always be there. But this should not make him or her lose hope.
Throughout these volunteer sessions I had to demonstrate patience and flexibility based on the student I was assisting that day. Some days my student despised reading and had no focus and other days my student could not pronounce over half the words on the page or comprehend their meaning. I am very thankful I did this kind of volunteering because it allowed me to shape into a more patient and understanding person. Overall, I believe I epitomize what leadership stands for through my dependability and integrity in extracurricular roles, industriousness and human compassion while planning events for my current high school, and character through volunteering. A goal I have is further better myself in any way possible as a leader.
You have to accomplish what is pushed down to you but you have to be able to see when there is room for discussion. There are times when you have to say no, but there are times when you want to say no and you just have to go. Learning to handle yourself in either situation and make the best of the conditions that will follow is the only way you can truly lead yourself. There are situations where it’s easier to just do what you are told then it is to make yourself do what you are told. But that is essentially what it is about.
Further, trustworthy, understanding the people, able to motivate people, good decision making, being responsible, being realistic and being ethical are some important aspects of a leader to develop as a good leader. Considering personal leadership goals, one aspect that I would like to improve in myself is confidence in speaking English in front of others. It is not about how many people around me, but it is about talking in English. Even though I
As a leader I try by all means to provide a moral health atmosphere in the organisation. I also believe that it is my responsibility as a leader to make sure that ethical decisions are reinforced within the organisation. I also believe that as a leader it is my responsibility to develop an organisation climate which promotes ethical conduct by employees. I also believe that the success of the organisation entirely depend on the moral behaviour that I portray as a leader and the type of decisions I make. I also embody a number of quality and characteristics such as courage, being fair and firm and I have a quest for social
By having a high score, I am assumed to exhibit self-leadership techniques. I believe I exhibit some; however, I am guilty of having others and their behavior affect me. It would be my case of picking up tendencies. Whether someone is extremely happy or sad, I am concerned. Some individuals that come off as sad are actually not.
This leadership model has been used in many organizations and training programs to inform future and present leadership ways in improve quality and characteristics to become more effective and proficient within their leadership roles. These practices are described as the following: Most people want to follow someone who is honest and authentic. One of the best ways to gain credibility is having good ethical character, being honest, and integrity (Griffith & Dunham, 2015). By possessing these qualities, you are modeling the way for your subordinates. Leaders can become role models by keeping their words and speaking truthfulness.
The first one is that, I believe in the servant leadership philosophy. Personally, I put more value in serving rather than leading. I think leading will naturally come, when you are serving others. Because most people will be inspired or influenced to follow you when you serve or help them. That is why I make sure that I engage in different volunteer works, in which I am able to serve without expecting any reward.
For this Leadership Challenge, I wanted to focus meticulously on finding out truly what my leadership style is. I had the luxury tto go back once upon time and reflect on my life the past ten years. By achieving on finding out my style, I looked upon my experiences from high school to the present day. It was a neat process for me because it allowed me to really know who I am as a person, but better yet as a future leader. Through my research, I started by seeking at my past professional assessments, work and personal experiences, my surrounding resources such as having a career coach, my fellow colleagues, my global experience, and my family and friends.
