Everyone wants to be respected. It’s in our nature, but in order to obtain respect, first of all one has to respect oneself. Second, one has to show respect to others in order to gain respect from them. If one doesn’t show respect to someone, that person may often feel blown off and lose respect for you. Respect in my eyes is like a math equation loyalty plus duty equals respect. respect is gained in conducting ones self in a way that others can stand
* Respect. Respect each individual with the same respect as you would like to be respected.
What is respect? Is the way people should be treated, how you would want to be treated, and should it come naturally or should it be taught? Respect is what are world is built on, I feel that the phrases like “reap what you sow” explain what respect works like. For example to when I am rude to someone they tend to be rude back, the same works with respect. When being disrespectful to someone you most likely will disrespect you right back. Not everyone follows these thoughts of respect. Actions like these can lead to dangerous places, people begin to break boundaries that were once built on respect.
Trust among team members is crucial when building a team. As your leader, I want
Leadership is a privilege that carries the responsibilities to inspire, mold, and teach others as well as to attain the vision and the goals of our organization. Real Leaders are strong in their belief, and they belief in what they are doing. Faith and belief comes from the inside.
Treat others like they are important, and they really are. Most people want to feel appreciated, valued, and want to be treated with dignity. Treat others with the amount of respect you expect to receive from them. Being respectful to other exhibits you have respect for yourself.
Have you ever wondered what it takes to be a great leader? I am going to evaluate my strengths and weaknesses as a leader by sharing my online leadership assessment results, review what my philosophy of leadership is, and discuss the characteristics that I believe make a great leader. I am also going to show how I will execute my plan to become the best leader I can be.
Artisans all have tools they proudly weld in the pursuit of their craft. Musicians have their instruments of wood, brass, string and voice. Sculptors and painters have their materials of metals, clays, pigments and canvas while dancers use their bodies and costumes. These items are all used as tools of personal expression for the artist. Many artists appear to be born with natural talents for their art or are drawn to one medium of expression over another, but none excel at their craft without dedication and deliberate practice.
Leadership is an influential word: and its meaning may differ from person to person. Some describe leadership as the people in the highest and most powerful positions within an organization. But as I look back on the positions I have held and the people I would consider leaders, the people I would choose to follow, they were not necessarily the higher ranked people in the organization. They were the people with vision and moral compass who moved the company forward. These people live by their own values and stayed true to these principles every day in their roles within the organization. Those who try to lead by intimidation are not actually leaders but managers, who will have some success in achieving goals but will
I became a leader once I understood exactly what a leader does. Being a leader is one of the most rewarding accomplishments anyone could receive. My leadership philosophy is my way that I see myself as being a leader. I have the ability to change who I am as a leader by simply changing my philosophy of leadership; however I am aware that it can change as I grow to understand myself within the context of leading.
This is what I believe about leadership: it’s overrated. What I mean by this is that after 20 years of life, I have become numb to society’s leadership propaganda. As I stated in my original leadership philosophy two years ago, society has taught us to associate leadership with power and affluence, to picture a man in a suit so crisp his cuffs could paper cut your soul and a vivacious, yet somehow sternly reserved demeanor. Rarely, if ever, have a witnessed a “mediocre” student be called a leader; it is always the best, the brightest, and the most personable that are graced with the glorious label of leaders. They are held on a pedestal as if their characteristics are superior to those of others, revered to the point that they some otherworldly and their characteristics seem unachievable by the average Joe. I am not attempting to say that highly publicized leaders or presidents or CEOs are not leaders, I am saying that they are not any different than you or I. It is in my nature to counter the belief, to dub null and void the almighty concept of leadership as a reward or achievement and instead replace it with the idea that leadership is an innate trait. It’s not about being a leader; it’s about building on the qualities that make a leader. While reflecting on my beliefs and writing this paper, I noticed that Microsoft Word’s suggested synonyms for leadership include management, control, headship, and governance. This is a perfect example of
My personal philosophy has been molded and developed by my upbringing, faith and experiences in my life. A nature and nurture process co-exists to develop one’s guidelines in life and in leadership. We take experiences and examples from parents and mentors, good and bad, to develop our internal philosophies. My core beliefs correspond to the tenet that a sense of integrity is more fundamental to the welfare of ethical individuals than a concern for consequences or rules. However, my chosen profession has aligned me to deontology and an empirical search for answers. I follow a creed based upon a warrior ethos.
My leadership philosophy is to inspire and motivate people through action and dedication along with effective communication. I think, words are not enough to be an effective leader, one must show people how to be an effective leader. Therefore, my leadership style is amalgamated with both words and action. Effective communication and action are key, to accomplishing your goals. Although effective communication is vital in the workforce, it is not acceptable to just communicate, be diligent that is all it takes to be successful in life. No, effective communication must be coupled with action. Therefore, do not say you spent hours working on this project, let others witness your working hours on that project. Demonstrate your knowledge by teaching
My leadership philosophy is very simple and can be compared to the simplicity of the lifecycle of a tree. A seed forms into a sapling which in turn grows into a mature, majestic, vibrant-full representation of those leaders who have contributed to their development and growth process on their journey to become leaders. Seems very simple when put in to those terms, however, each of these processes are very complex and need everyone’s input, attention and examples; both good and bad, leadership to build on their own style. Leadership is a lifecycle and ever evolving! Leadership defined in my own words is having the ability to create an environment where everyone has the chance to thrive and learn from each other both positively and negatively. I certainly do not know everything there is to know about being a good leader, but I am confident and comfortable in my own area of expertise. I am a mature tree that falls in a row amongst many other trees. I have worked for horrible leaders and great leaders throughout my career. I have learned so much from both types and have taken, what I feel, the best from each one to grow my own style. I don’t honestly feel that there is another one of me or my leadership style running around. I am unique.
During the course of leadership, my philosophy of being a leader changed from managing people to leading them. To be a leader means to help people solving problems, being decisive and taking responsibility for decisions, creating teams, having individual approach to people using emotional intelligence, connecting superior’s needs with subordinates’ outcomes in pleasant, effective environment. It is also essential for a leader to know himself well. Knowing own personality it is easier to communicate effectively and achieve goals depicted above. Leader should also be fair, patient, and stoic as giving good example creates high standard of working environment. Leader should also understand environment to create good structure of the
