Anderson (2012) suggests leaders acquire power and focus on empowering others, as well as motivating and inspiring others. Leaders are influential, sincere, and take risks. Managers are given a formal role and are assigned specific duties with definite responsibilities. Managers plan, organize, coordinate, and control (Kelly & Crawford, 2008). Clearly there is a significant amount of overlap between leaders and managers. In order to effectively lead and manage this new facility, it is my ambition to incorporate the best characteristics of both. Effective application of both skill sets may assist me to provide a balanced and productive work environment.
Addressing organizational needs, problems and strengths begins with leadership. Ensuring needs, problems and strengths are appropriately measured, analyzed and, where appropriate diverted, begins with great leaders. Great leadership is about “ferocious resolve, an almost stoic determination to do whatever needs to be done to make the company great.” (Collins, 2001). Success for the leadership capstone project can be defined many ways; implementing a solution to resolve the problem as well as acknowledging the limitations of the study and identifying areas of focus for future research. Success for this leadership project is due in part to the results and findings of the study; however, the fundamental key to its success centers around leadership.
Within any large organization new employees are required to attend some form of orientation. Within the United State Navy, there are several types of orientation depending on ones rank and job. For instance, enlisted Sailors attend a seven week orientation better known as Boot Camp in Great Lakes, Illinois and officers attend ODS or OCS in Newport, Rhode Island. Even though, all three orientations or Boot Camps vary in length, they all have some form of introductory leadership training. However, because the United States Navy realizes this is not enough they have developed several follow on leadership courses to be taken through ones Naval career such as: Division Officer Leadership Course (DIVOLC) targeted for junior line officer, not staff officers; Department Head Leadership Course (DHLC) targeted for all officers, typically Lieutenant Commander (O-4) and above; Executive Officer Leadership Course (XOLC) for those going to designated XO billets; Commanding Officer Leadership Course (COLC) for those taking command for the first time; and Major Command Leadership Course (MCLC) designed for Captain’s (O-6) or above taking command of regions.

My leadership role as co-president of National Honor Society has affected me greatly in the two years I have been apart of the organization. The organization has taught and grown characteristics, such as leadership, cooperation, and determination, in myself, and in turn I have spread to others. The organization has also shown me the importance of volunteering, and how I can directly contribute to the bettering of my community through volunteering. During my time in the National Honor Society I have completed over 130 hours of community service. This year specifically I have been placed in charge of the recycling program and the road cleanup program. The recycling program consists of placing bins in each classroom for paper and plastic products,
In addition, leadership itself can be described in various forms and through the highlight of different skill sets, but the one thing that all definitions have in common is that “leadership involves influencing the attitudes, beliefs, behaviours and feelings of other people” Spector’s work (as cited in Curtis, de Vries, & Sheerin, 2011, p.306). When the skill set of a leader is compared to that of a manager, true differences are noted. Some of these key differences are apparent even in the approach utilized to reach the desired goals. While a manager directs, a leader transforms, a manager sustains and a leader improves, a manager controls, a leader motivates, a manager’s focus is on short-term goals and a leader’s is long-term based, managers ask how and when, while
