Every group, team, or organization has a leader. That leader has to have certain qualities to be well respected and followed by his or her following. Not only does the leader have qualities and responsibilities to maintain but also the group’s members. Both the leader and individuals in the group must have respect, fear, and honesty among each other to be a productive group.
I occupy my time in clubs and activities that both captivate my interest and are most important for my peers and me. These include but are not limited to my positions in Link Crew, Student Council, and Senior Board. They range from Senior Class Representative to Vice President. Many of my teachers and mentors have identified a characteristic of mine as a great leader, and I wanted to improve on these skills. I don't dominate discussion or action, I simply guide it. I take all of my positions seriously and always bring my best attitude; my leadership methods distinguish me from other

I learned the importance of becoming a true leader in nursing from the nursing leadership and management course. I become a lot of my weakness thanks to the knowledge I gained from the Nursing Leadership and Management class. A nurse leader uses interpersonal skills to influence others to accomplish a specific goal. The leader creates connections among the members of an organization to promote high levels of performance and quality outcomes. (Maryol, 2017). The class helped me defined my leadership style which is a combination of authoritative and democratic. It also helped me understand the importance of developing good coaching skills. After all, The goal of coaching is to eliminate or improve performance problems. (Maryol,
One of the most important characteristics of a good leader and follower is having good communication skills. The two must communicate and be honest with one another. If the team of leaders and followers are honest and communicate well among one another then the team is almost unstoppable. As an employee or follower, you must be honest with your boss or leader about any situation. It is crucial for the leader to get appropriate feedback from the followers. For example, when being asked by employers about the job or plan give an honest but respectful response. A good follower should give the leader a precise judgement of plans and situations that the team encounters. Good followers are able to give

7. What are your goals when undertake the leadership role ? Is there any difficuty to be a physician as well as clinical leader ?
There are many people who believe that they can be a great leader. "Great leaders are aware of their own style and make the effort to learn how their style actually comes across to their team. They learn to flex their leadership style to individual team members so that they communicate and behave in ways that motivate and inspire” according to Farrell, R. (2011, August 3). To be a leader there are qualities that it takes to be a leader that followers and an organization needs to become successful. For me my strongest qualities are respect, honesty, confidence, compassion, care, supportive and celebration. How I plan to use these is simple and some should already be in place now such as the respect. Compassion I will need to have with the patients and families along with my co-workers. Death is never an easy topic to discuss, but hopefully we can all come together to make it easier for the family. Flexible leadership, however, involves being able to adapt your leadership style according to the situation and the state of the team. As a leader I will need to show compassion by having an open door policy to my followers so that they feel they can come to me with any problem. I also need to show my followers that I do truly care about them. Take a moment out of every day to check with your employees to see how they are doing. A way to do this is take an interest in who they are as a person. Make them feel as they are important to you.
Leadership “If you actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more and become more, you are a leader” (John Quincy Adams, as cited in Forbes, 2014, p. 1). A leader is mentor, guiding others to their best. In this paper, I will reflect on my personal values
The workforce within any organization is the engine that keeps the business moving forward. Positive leadership, as well as effective and competent following, could be the difference between success and failure for a business. Effective leadership and followers should have a symbiotic relationship, which is the most effective way a business will meet its goals. It can be seen within Jake’s Pet Land case study that there truly is a difference between leadership styles amongst different leaders. While Philip and Jan took a different approach to being a leader, Adam’s role of the follower stayed the same. Adam continued to exemplify the best characteristics possible as a follower in order to make the business as
Generally, before becoming a leader, individual has many characteristics for working as an employee. It should be discussed first that what kind of characteristics is helpful to become a leader in the future. The trait theory of leadership is due to some traits, leader is different from others. It can separate into five key factors: neuroticism, extraversion, openness to experience, agreeableness, and conscientiousness. The study shows that “extraversion, openness to experience, and agreeableness were significantly correlated with leadership.” (Amy E. Colbert, 2012, P. 678) Extravert is more controlling and more willing to share ideas to contribute the group so that he is more likely to be a leader. Openness to experience means it is creativeness and different opinion and it usually contribute more in the group, lead to group success, and become a leader. Agreeableness is the inclination to endure, cooperate, and believe. Workers who have these personalities would be helpful to establish leadership. Besides traits are highly related to leadership, they also fit with behaviors which will achieve the goal. The
The practicum activities that I have attended contributed and made an impact to my learning such as leadership class, telemedicine courses, reading, and the research for my capstone project in different literatures to obtain evidence based practice. As I am preparing my career path for higher education in the future, I have come to the realization that higher learning is the key to better tomorrow and leaders are not born, they are made. Leaders are people who truly understand themselves and recognize the various elements of human nature. Communication is the most indicative trait of an effective leader because if a leader can empower followers to comprehend precisely the message, production and success are the results. I also learned that by taking these courses on higher education and leadership this will develop and mold me with the critical and analytical skills that will prepare me to compete with other healthcare professionals.
