I feel frustrated when I do not have the proper information needed to complete a task with precision. (P) I avoid anything technical. I would rather read about doing something than actually doing it. I like dealing with information, not tools. (TR) I do not like change.
I discovered that being in a leadership position, other's expectations of me are higher. Consequently, I expect more of myself. I find that to be a good leader I have to first be a good follower. As a fledgling LET 1*, I learned the art of following well. Answers are not uttered with the simplicity of "yeah" or "ok", but “sir yes sir" and “sir never sir".
Personal Leadership Style. Right now I feel like people look at me as a People-Oriented and Servant leader. Which is good, but I want to have a little of other styles. I tend to really focus more on motivating people and I’m very people oriented. When it comes to making decisions I’m lacking experience there.
The Career Plan Building Activities made me realize I have strengths in the areas of coping with pressure, delivering result, following instructions, and adapting to change. These strengths will help me to be an excellent leader and encourage employees to do their best to deliver positive results for the company. I will be able to handle any circumstance and make beneficial and effective decisions. I will have to make sure I am thinking critically when evaluating arguments. I know how to recognize fallacies and can judge the validity and credibility of the source.
The ability to persuade and convince others to accept one's argument or reasoning is such a skill, even though that some people are more gifted at it than others. Good leaders should also have integrity of character and lead by example. These qualities, which go to make up character, can be instilled as well. Leadership learning is a life activity. It can never be done because there is always more to learn.
BSBWOR501B PROJECT 1 I feel an effective leader is someone who can always see the bigger picture of any situation, is committed to their work, has uncompromising integrity and is consistent in their behaviour and attitude. Respect, Integrity, motivated, approachable, supportive and encouraging are the words that come to my mind and are values that are important to me and this is how I choose to conduct myself personally and professionally. Keeping up to date with the latest information and skills and to continue developing my skills and knowledge is also valuable as an effective leader and I encourage my employees to continue to learn and ask questions. To be an effective leader you also need to be a good role model and to me this means leading by example. Knowing your own strengths and weaknesses and those of your employees, taking the time to know your employees is vital for a strong and cohesive team environment and will enable you to be able to bring the best out of your team because you understand their strengths and weaknesses and you know the person.
With saying that, I know that if I try hard and work hard, I will reach success. I must know that along with success comes failure. When failure happens I must not let it get in the way of my goals, I must develop ways I can fix my failure and keep moving. I also must learn the traits of a successful person, see the parts of my life that need improvement, and then move toward more success in my own life. Taking control of my choices and not being a victim of the change life is going to throw at me is another role that is important on my way to success.
Prior to the commencement of this assessment, I strongly believed I worked well as part of a team. After completing this collaborative assessment and upon reflection, I don’t believe this to be accurate. I found Assessment 2A to be rather difficult in regards to my peers metacognitive abilities, commitment, cooperation and communication. I felt my role within the group was as a leader, not by appointment but default. I think my engagement in group discussions led members of my group to believe that I knew what I was doing.
In my current career status, the rational decision-making model is the type I live by. Due to working in such a structured facility, I must always follow some set of rules. This causes it to be very difficult to come to a conclusion when making decisions. Brainstorming always helps to facilitate the problems that must be overcome. To obtain a final decision, there are steps to be taken.
They need to be multi-talented so they will be able to understand discussions about a wide range of issues affecting the business. They need to have a clear and sharp mind so they will be able to find the main cause of an issue rather than unnecessary details. A good leader will have to motivate employees, especially in an autocratic style of leadership. This is because workers will have to carry out the task and to carry it out efficiently they will have to be motivated. Workers are also motivated in a democratic style of leadership as there is two way communication and worker's opinions are considered.
