As a leader and being positioned between the demands of management, team and the workers; leadership skills must include the ability to juggle the various priorities while keeping performance high and cost under control. 9.0 Conclusion In conclusion, there are several leadership styles that I can relate to.

As for my challenges, seek coaching and mentoring assistance, attend workshops, seminars and conferences that are conducive to my leadership skills and maintain
Taking courses and reading books are good ways for leader to acquire foundational knowledge, but new skills will be acquired only when they are practiced on the job (Hughes, 2015). Staying involved in activities, shadowing, and observing what others do will also help build intelligence. Next in my plan, I would include obtaining a mentor who is willing to take me under their wing and would bring forth valuable perspectives and insights through close association (Hughes, 2015). Leadership development through feedback-based approaches can help identify” blind spots” an individual may be unaware of, as well as help prioritize which aspects of leadership development represent the highest priorities for developmental focus (Hughes, 2015). This is the plan I would design in developing myself into a “perfect”
It is clear that coaching has an immense role in assisting and building remarkable workplaces and great organizations. It is notable that people who want to achieve their goals in due time face some challenges in their way. Coaching is the entire process of assisting individuals develops their ability to think about things such as people, relationships, problems, customers and the future. It remains clear that coaching assists people to unleash their full potential (Fletcher, 2012). Coaching helps individuals concentrate on the things that make them get stuck and then overcome them.
Leaders “need to surround themselves with a team that complements their own strengths, and compensates for the skills that they lack” (Gottlieb et al., 2012, p.43). I am currently using my leadership strengths with developing a new protocol and education for manual proning in the intensive care unit. I am strong in areas of research, sifting through information, and compiling it; however, I’m not great about speaking in public. I made sure to include a member of my team whom was comfortable with public speaking. By having a team comprised of different strengths, we will have a greater chance of sharing our vision on the importance of manual proning with the
A mentor would hold me accountable during high stress situations and relate their own professional experiences. Currently, I mentor two teachers on my campus and it is has been a wonderful experience. We meet regularly to discuss everyday situations from challenging students, parent conferences, to the daily culture of the school. I could transfer this situation to one where I would be leaning on an experienced leader to impart their wisdom on to me. Overall, if a mentor were available it would provide a safe place to vent concerns and frustrations and provide an accountability partner to discuss the decision making process one goes through as they learn the ropes of leadership.
It leads to multiple solutions with a broader perspective. • Responsibility: - Dewey opines that responsible teachers bring changes in the students by their experimentation .Reflecting one’s principles to enhance teaching as well as an active yearning to listen more, to pay attention to alternative possibility. Reflective teachers are constantly questioning themselves with questions
According to this theory the best leaders are those who best adapt themselves to the situation. An adaptive leader might look at cues such as the type of task and who is involved in group, to better their judgement. A study on university employees on situational leadership found results that indicated a situational factor in leadership when solving different job tasks (Fernandez & Vecchio, 1997). This theory has an application for the EPP that I took part in, throughout my experience I was faced with tasks that we as a team had to overcome, it became clear that the role of leader changed dependant on the task. An example would be creating the design and speech for the new PowerPoint presentation for recruitment of student staff.
Today 's work environment requires rapid responses and creativity as well as the resilience of all employees. It is also very critical for organizations like Jeffries, Smith, and West to be able to retain its top talent and this can be done through coaching. When employees are coached, they exhibit more commitment and improved performance at the workplace. There are several coaching styles that can be used in the workplace with each being applicable in different scenarios. The personality and behavioral preference of the coach will affect the type of coaching style they will choose to use in the coaching process and it could either make or break the coaching relationship (Parsloe et al, 2016).
In the training, we attain people attention, motivates them to care them and encourage them to achieve the common goals that what we do in the leadership we engage followers, motivates them shows them the clear vision to achieve the common goal. But there is some difference between the leadership and training. High-performance teams always build under the leadership not by the training. Training tells us what to do and how to do the things or specific task and leadership tells the same thing with the pride and care. Leaders select the right person for the right job because they know about the strengths and weakness of their team vs compare to the trainer just tell us how to perform in the particular situation with specific behavior.
It is essential for them to deviate from that plan and discover realities that others haven 't anticipated. The initial level on anxiety among team members arising out of adaptive problem situation is countered by the steady progress on the issues which raises the level of trust
One leadership style I have obsesrved of both a project manager and superintendent is to lead by example. Both the project manager and superintendent play major roles in a project, and starting a project with a motivated, positive attitude can set the tone for the project environment. When these two roles show positive qualities, others involved in the project will as well. Another management style that I have observed of a project manager is having an “open door” policy by always welcoming questions from other project team members. There are several strengths and weaknesses associated with each of the above mentioned leadership and management styles.
“Crisis situations are inherent in the activity of any modern organization; regardless its type - public, military or private - and they affect the efficiency of human resource or even organization 's excellence”( Mitut, 2011). Leaders should always be present and provide emotional, physical and mental support to those that seek to follow. “It’s not whether bad things happen that makes or breaks a commander. It’s what he does with the hand he’s dealt that really matters”(Dees, 2013, p. 190). It is essential for leaders to maintain a positive attitude while guiding follower through crisis.
John Quincy Adams once said “If your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more and become more, you are a leader.” In order to be a great leader in life one needs to have skills in teamwork, be responsible, and strive for success. Being a leader requires skills in the department of teamwork. A person should communicate with their peers on the task-at-hand. Said person should be clear when giving instructions and always help people that may not have understood. He or she should make sure that there are no problems or concerns.
