According to the LSI self-development guide, Humanistic-Encouraging individuals tends to think, grow and take responsibilities for themselves. They are also willing to help others to self-improve by coaching them and providing an environment that encourages self-improvement. Even though I’m not yet a manager, I see this personality train in myself in school settings. When I have to do group projects, I’m usually elected to be the leader of the group because of how I approach the group. I understand the need to divide the work among the group members depending on their strengths and weaknesses.

They still looked up to her for advice because that’s their role model still and it doesn’t affect them. She made that mistake so why put greater limitations on role models if the mistakes don’t affect the achievements. Role models are looked up to for success not mistakes. They are still regular people who shouldn’t be expected to behave any differently than others. People doing good things and getting looked up to for them doesn’t change the fact that they are still human.

They knew how to perform their work responsibilites, so they did not need me to tell them how to do their job. If I would of told them precisely how to do their job this would cause them to resent my leadership and they would feel under minded.

Since leaders are not really part of the day to day operations of an organization, at least not in the sense to look after operations and programs, but rather oversea the whole the program which is why they are the favored authorities to make plans. Plans soon to be implemented by the bulk of the civil servants (in case of public service) or administrators and officers in case of the other organizations. Cold and calculated decisions usually lead to better plans and indeed, better plans lead to better programs. Female leaders, and again this is a generalization, can be more reasonable and patient in cases. This is because of their calm nature and tendency to listen to the complaining entities and if a case is brought to her, the sides will be listened to.
