My definition of good leadership is to influence the people around you to not simply achieve a goal but to accomplish them, in such as way, which both the organization and its members benefit. This definition of good leadership occurs by successfully communicating to people that the goals of the organization are important to them as well. This occurs when people self-internalize a goal or task, analyzing it to determine its importance to them. Self-internalizing the importance of a goal is not something that occurs in a vacuum, even though the decision is made on an individual basis, because external influences constantly shape or even change our values. Our personal values are quite dynamic, changing over time as the social mores in our society evolve.
A leader needs to adapt to situations and use techniques that are inclusive in order to avoid conflict and aids decision-making. Building relationships, considering others feelings and celebrating their successes with them can maintain strong leadership. By encouraging my team to participate in the decision making process I empower them, which inspires job satisfaction this reduces conflict, poor time keeping and absenteeism. I need to be able to help my staff team understand the need for change and I do this by being clear about my aims and objectives, the actions required and the part they need to play. Sometimes I need to take control especially where health and safety is concerned, these policies and procedures me adhered to at all times.
It is easy to doubt your abilities and it is immensely helpful to have understanding, relatable friends/coworkers to turn to. I hope to be just like the returning RAs my starting year: open-minded, optimistic, reliable, honest, and determined. Being mindful of the needs I had, and adjusting to theirs, is important to me. “Lead by example” is my favorite type of leadership, because I feel that it is so effective. It means to be confident in your own values and decisions to lead without having to worry about teaching to others orally.
“Pausing for reflection allows the space to separate logic and emotions; it allows us to understand all of the contributing factors and dynamics and to separate the personal from the systemic” (Young, Boulton, & Liddell, 2016, p.42). As a reflective leader, I can challenge my assumptions, asks relevant questions and endeavor to make sense of my experiences. Being an effective leader is of paramount importance to me. As an effective leader, I can reflect to improve, effect change for the betterment of an organization, and hold integrity as the mantra of my leadership style. The use of structured reflection is central to sustain and enhance professional and personal effectiveness.
This experience has showed how far a leader should be willing to go for the people that need them the most, the leader should never show how unsure or nervous they are on the inside as his or she has people counting on them to be that clear mind to lean on. I now understand and am grateful I had the opportunity to follow under that coach as I am now a better person and hold better leadership values because of
I enjoy this role and am here because of my GRS experience, but sometimes I think much of what I accomplish comes from common sense and just knowing where to get the best answer from. My career so far has provided awesome exposure to the day to day and unveiled the many challenges we have in moving forward. The more I see, the more I realize much of this is likely transferable to any environment, so I’m keeping an open mind. What I would like to build on next is leadership experience.
The first part is that I want to make sure that every team member in my group projects has a specific responsibility or role right from the start. One reason I struggle with delegating is that it is more comfortable for me to just do an assignment rather than explain and give it to someone else. I believe that making sure that everyone has an assignment will go a long way in helping me learn to communicate responsibilities. It will also help to delegate meaningful responsibilities to everyone in the group. The second part of the plan is that I want to give positive feedback to every single person I work with on teams.
First and foremost I believe that my personal leadership philosophy is embedded in various factors and the very first one being fully understanding myself as who I am as a person. I believe that knowing my self fully will make it easier for me to direct my followers towards the achievement of the organisational goal. I also believe that knowing my self will make me
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
My Personal Leadership Philosophy Having an idea is something which could be done by many, but ability to proceed the idea into real action is a caracteristic of a person with a leadership. Leadership is also about being able to take risks, creating a confidence and trust, ability to inspire and stay inspired. Leaders differ with their approach.

The qualities I lack as a leader is the ability to delegate the responsibilities and keeping my temper
