Unit IV teaches that Leadership is important to performance and followership has everything to do with it. Kelley’s model of followership can be a useful model to observe people 's motivations and work ethic. By detecting follower motivation and work ethics, it helps a leader to open the conversation about work effort and thinking effort. Which in return, can be used to become a more effective follower. Follower development and follower performance are key aspects to reaching organizational
In the process of doing this there are ethical aspects to be considered by teachers. The action research aim is mainly for teachers to collaborate actively to improve their practical approaches based on the inquiry. The other key attributes of this action research are that it will allow teachers and researchers to evaluate critically, reflecting on the data gathered. According to Reason and Bradbury (2001) the primary purpose of the action research is for teachers to identify the practical side of how knowledge is used in our daily life. The action research method deals with real life situation in any working environment,therefore it is easier for teachers to develop professionalism in their field of
a) Leadership is a process, (b) leadership involves influence, (c) leadership occurs in groups, and (d) leadership involves common goals. Leadership is a process whereby an individual influence a group of individuals to achieve a common goal according to (Northouse,2013). Leadership is about inspiring people to a good cause rather than holding positions of formal authority. I will apply my servant leadership practice by striving to incorporate the open-door policy to communicate effectively with my team. Have awareness to the daily operations and follow up with my staff.
The subjective nature of the task creates a difficult cost benefit analysis case but the value has been shown in various literature research to include return on investment methodology and capital analytics planning in respect to leadership development benefit. The research has reviewed the ability of teaching leadership and core subjects to be beneficial to developing leaders. The material available show ways that teaching employees certain subjects in relation to leadership and real work situations can improve their competency, strategic view, curiosity and more which ultimately improve their transformational leadership traits. The Multifactor Leadership Questionnaire (MLQ) has been widely accepted as a foundational test for leadership traits; in particular transformational leadership traits. The literature shows the effectiveness of various versions of the test to target specific
This competency is all about being able to make critical decisions in the case of ethical dilemmas and acting professionally in the work place. Although ethical dilemmas rarely have clear-cut solutions, this competency tells social workers to turn to the NASW code of ethics and supervision for guidance. That is exactly what I did for my "Ethic Paper" which you can find below. For this assignment, I was asked to interview a licensed MSW about an ethical dilemma they faced in their career, how they handled it, and how they came to their decisions. This assignment allowed me to better understand how an ethical dilemma is handled in the real world (as opposed to the many hypothetical situations we discuss in class) and also challenged my interviewing
Understanding oneself through self-analysis is essential to success in the workplace. One must have a firm grasp of who they are as a person, and how best they work with others for them to be able to achieve their goals in their career. Achievement is not determined by what your personality is, but on how you use your specific strengths to your advantage at work. For this self-analysis, I took the Myers-Briggs Type Index, the Big Five Personality Test, Emotional Intelligence Questionnaire and The Blake and Mouton Managerial Grid Leadership Self-Assessment Questionnaire. Having a better sense of myself will help me to communicate with others more effectively, and will guide me to utilize my strengths and weaknesses in the workplace.
Rules are set to satisfy the organization, and to defend it if the situation requires that. Leaders who cannot build a strong relationships with employees are not real leaders. They should be able to observe employee correctly in order to put the right person in the right position, and create a convenient environment to show their potential and abilities. Moreover, accepting the fact of more than one opinion is absolutely correct would be another point that the leader should it into account. Regarding on what I read in the first four chapter, the author has her unique way to put out ideas.
Servant leadership style falls in line with my professional, moral and ethical belief system because the focus is on empowering the followers and treating each individual as a human being. By volunteering, I was able to get more insight into the principles of servant leadership and practice my leadership skills. The experience has taught me a valuable lesson in leadership that people like leaders who lead them rather than leaders who manage
“[…] still, there’s the highest aim of teaching profession which determines the principle goal of all the teaching and mentoring process – it is how to become a better teacher. The most important goal both for a mentor and a mentee is to be somewhat useful,” - Mentee 6. From the excerpts above it is vividly seen that the main motive which drives the mentorship process according to the participants’ view is the knowledge exchange, or, the opportunity to be somehow useful and helpful, thereby believing in “two-way street” approach. Theme 2: Mentorship as a one-way street (codes: no goals/“mentor should”/unawareness) However, whereas some teachers regard mentorship as a process of mutual benefit, some teachers hold another opinion, regarding it as a one-way process. Interestingly, but mainly mentees feel that they did not have to carry any duties and goals in front of their mentors, whereas it is the mentors, who “should” or “must” undertake some
With more studies done in this area of “teacher professionalism”, there was more focus on the individual and the fraternity as a whole to be more engaged in critical reflective practice. The core idea here is that teaching cannot be thought of in solely technicist tems, but rather can be understood only as an intellectual- and a critical intellectual- undertaking( Giroux, 1988). As professionals, teachers must be responsible and accountable for that which is under their control, both individually and collectively (Preston, 1996). For teaching to considered as profession, some underlying characteristics and contributing factors would be a sound subject knowledge inclusive of pedagogical knowledge; grounded classroom practice where practical and experimental knowledge can be delivered; an underlying interest with issues in curriculum, assessment and other policy matters in education; a meaningful and progressive career progression; a common code of ethics enforced and practiced by all members of the profession; and a underlying commitment to personal and professional
