I have found that leaders who fail to motivate, or lack self-confidence to be weak and ineffective. Good leaders are knowledgeable and trustworthy they are people who are ambitious and results driven. It has been my experience that when leaders lack the ability to remove obstacles or clearly define the objective, the teams fail to produce the results or meet the deliverables. I have had leaders that were ineffective due to poor

Some of the feedback that I have heard from employees while conducting personal interviews as well as online postings on Glassdoor have revealed that many employees are dissatisfied with their supervisors. Employees have described many of their supervisors as possessing the traits of the Theory X mental model. Employees have reported to me in-person and on Glassdoor that they feel as though supervisors treat them as disposable resources at times. Employees have mentioned that their supervisors demand that all mail be delivered before employees can go home. It has been reported that some supervisors assume that employees will not want to deliver all or a majority of the mail in their Long Life Vehicles in a timely manner.
I must note that I am lucky to have an amazing supervisor and direct supervisor. I do not have to worry about organizational challenges with them. They always created positive working environment, enhancing employee well-being at work, and have great
Negative Leadership Behavior There are many examples of poor leadership behavior in today’s workplace. Inadequate leadership can be detrimental not only to a team within an organization, but also to the entire organization itself. I believe it is vital for upper management to ensure that their leaders are properly trained and aware of how to handle certain situations and employees. When a leader’s weaknesses are overlooked, large problems occur.
Narcissism Not all leadership traits are positive; some can sow discord within a company. My experience with a manager who was narcissistic is a perfect example. I worked as quality lab technician for an aerospace company with good pay and great coworkers. Upper management was tolerable, but my immediate supervisor had a personal agenda of seeking power. This supervisor would feel threatened at the thought of me receiving mentorship from other experienced people. He would enter every conversation with an accomplishment that we would later find out as a lie. He would praise his leadership in front of them while criticizing them later when they left the room. He was paranoid of leaving us alone to do our jobs because he thought we would be lazy without him; this resulted in him placing cameras in every corner of the room. We
Leadership is the ability to inspire and focus members on a common goal, whether short term or long term and have the same vision. Leadership is more than telling or ordering, but having members believe and want to follow the same path as you. It’s a commitment to your people built on trust and respect. Many leaders shaped my personal leadership philosophy, to include several negative and positive experiences. Negative experiences from poor leaders and lessons learned on my part have uniquely shaped this vision. Difficult to be a good follower when your leader lacks competency, integrity, and your trust. If a leader takes credit for work other than their own, or forces and ideology onto others, but does not follow it themselves; these negative influences damage the trust and respect required by all leaders. However, positive experiences can also have a career lasting impact. A leader who inspires through personal actions and convictions can change how an entire unit operates without ever saying a word.
Social Change Model in Action The Ocean Pacific Community Center (OPCC) is only one great example of good leadership and the Social Change Model within today’s society. OPCC is a Santa Monica based social services agency providing housing programs and helpful services for low-income and homeless youth, adults and families, battered
Leaders who were very successful, used the authoritative style of leadership. These types were not very like or popular with Soldiers. Leaders who used this style barked order without little or no guidance back by the underlying threat that if directions were not followed to the number of their direction that administrative correction would follow. These leaders never led by example, never had the higher physical training scores, did not have the higher competency levels leaders are supposed to have and really used their position as a motivator to get task

Leadership can be defined as the process of identifying a goal, motivating others, and make them to achieve the mutually goals (Giltinane, 2013). According to Humphreys (2002), successful leaders do this by applying their leadership knowledge and skills. A good leadership is not only good at management, but also use different leadership styles in different situations. A successful corporation must has a good leader who have the flexible ability which can provide a suitable leadership to make the company successful. Furthermore, there have no perfect leadership styles in the world. Different leader have different leadership styles which also have the different strengths and weaknesses (Ali & Waqar, 2013).
