In followership there needs to be a leader that inspires and bonds followers together as a unit moving in one direction. Today’s leader has to be more than someone that was placed in a position of authority, a person with a title and a higher salary level. A real leader is found when the behaviors and attitudes of their
The purpose of this chapter is to analyze available followership literature to identify established and acceptable definitions and attributes of followership. The idea and theory of followership has been around for centuries. Aristotle once said, “Who would learn to lead must, as men say, first of all learn to obey” (Aristotle, 1895). Since the mid-1900s researchers conducted specific studies on followership, beginning with E. P. Hollander and Wilse Webb’s study “Leadership, Followership, and Friendship: An Analysis of Peer Nominations” where they assess the validity of peer nominations (1953). Interest in the study of followership increased in the 1980s and 90s. However, followership became an independent field when Robert Kelly and Ira Chaleff each published books with followership in their titles (Crossman & Crossman, 2011). Kelly’s The Power of Followership: How to Create Leaders People Want to Follow and Followers Who Lead Themselves and Chaleff’s The Courageous Follower: Standing up to and for our Leaders are foundational works inspiring practically every subsequent study. From here followership literature can be categorized into two defining groups descriptive, studies that identify actual behaviors, and prescriptive, studies that identify ideal behaviors (Crossman & Crossman, 2011). This research combines both descriptive and prescriptive descriptions of followership and arrays them along Jon Howell and Dan Costley’s
I can only use minty chapstick. I drink A LOT of water, but I have a small bladder. I am left handed. I have moved six times in my life. I collect mugs, and I break out into dance often.
This philosopy of ministry is simply my personal way of doing things . In my view, every christian should believe the same primary, fundamental doctrines, however, not all churches and ministries should have the same style, or the same philosophy of ministry. Just as there is variety in the body, so the world needs all different styles of pastors, leaders and teachers. No one style will reach everybody with the gospel of Jesus. As you read the Bible you'll see that while God does tell a church what to believe and think, he never tells the church exactly how to operate. The church is free to creatively operate within biblical teachings and principles.
As a good follower, I need to accept responsibility and I need to be aware of the tasks that I have to take on. I have to readily support my leader at all times and I should be able to voice my opinions to my leader in a very supportive way. Leaders can only lead an organization successfully if they have personalities that appeal to their followers. The individual reflection and big five
I believe that the purpose and challenge of guidance is to help the child in the developing process of self-control and responsibility in practice. Positive, strong relationships between adults and children are key to a child's social and emotional development. It is very difficult to build any relationship without specific purpose and understanding of child development, without partnerships with family and staff’s interactions. Teacher largely combines, models and directs all of these components for better assisting to the child and his/her family.
I want others to be able to see my leadership philosophy at work. To do this, it is important that I be able to connect with those I seek to lead, as “The Relational Leadership Model” states, “Relationships are the focal point of the leadership process” (Komives, Lucas, & McMahon, p. 74). One way I hope to develop a relationship with my followers is by “Modeling the Way” (Kouzes, Posner, 2008). I will do this by clarifying my values and leading by example. Clarifying values is important because “To earn and sustain personal credibility, one must be able to clearly articulate deeply held beliefs” (Kouzes, Posner, 2008, p. 29). By clarifying my values, those I seek to lead will understand my mission and will believe I have a goal in mind. Leading by
My personal worldview explains the way I view and live life through the assumptions and beliefs I hold in response to the world around me. I believe I was created for a specific reason and purpose.
We often see crime rate go up, and it depend on society involvement many time we see offender’s in and out the prison system. Most of these offender’s dealing with poverty, no job and bad infulence. That case them to make the bad choice, many feel like don’t have nothing else to choice from other then crimes. The United States prison system has been tremendous grown over the past years. Where there have been so many difference in philosopy in the way they operate prisons. So therefore, by 1967 it was reported that state and Federal prisons held less than 300,000 inmates.Medical model with rehabilitating offenders this was the privailing

I am a first generation Vietnamese-American. But, what does that entail? It means living the best of two worlds. It means having Vietnamese values and customs while growing up in America. It means having a unique background with figures such as my grandpa and mother who uprooted their life to come to America. It means being bi-cultural.
I understand why someone might think that appealing to the people’s needs is mandatory to get people to follow, however it is not true. Saying what you think is really true and really believing in what you say is enough for people to become inspired, and choose to follow you, and what you stand for.
How I formed my leadership philosophy: throughout my career, having worked with numerous different styles of leaders who all had a different style of leadership. They also had individual ways to deliver their message; these leaders are what helped create my personal leadership philosophy and style.
The first philosophical underpinning I will introduce is Retribution. This process of punishment is derived from the famous “eye for an eye” mentality. Retribution focuses on proportionality and punishes offenders based on the severity of their crimes. Therefore, a person who has committed murder will receive a longer sentence that someone who was brought in for shoplifting according to the principles of retribution.
The importance placed on the follower’s opinions and capabilities acknowledges the value of his or her contribution by leadership. It motivates people to do their best and achieve the necessary goal(s). This empowerment by leadership therefore promotes a beneficial message between leaders and followers allowing for future communication when difficult circumstances might arise.
