Sometimes this style is also described as autocratic. It is a common leadership style and is used when a leader needs to keep as much power as possible and keep control over the decision making. Subordinates are expected to obey orders without arguing back or in need of an explanation to do what they have been ordered to do. In the public services this leadership maybe used when you have all the information to solve the problem or you are working to a deadline. This is not an effective way to get the best result from a team, but it has some advantages in situations where there is pressure to get the task done, like in the armed forces.
Everything that came up under “Challenges” was true for me. The challenges that related to me most were having difficulty managing time and losing interest in long, complex projects. However, the suggested strategies for these challenges are actually very helpful and I will definitely be using these suggestions from now on in both my short and long-term career goals. I learned that I am a Thinker rather than a Feeler – meaning I base my decisions on logic versus values. I have always thought I was more likely to use my feelings to make decisions rather than what my head tells me – but this assessment says otherwise.
Each of these strengths are necessary as servant leader as not only should you provide guidance but be actively engaged, technically competent, and tactically able to complete the work assigned. Weaknesses The team also evaluated items 3 and 4 as weakness. The capacity to solve project problems and the willingness to cooperate with others (if not at meetings then cooperation would be difficult). Although as a team member my attendance was not an issue, my weakness for a team that wants to simply process the task is perceived as uncooperative or not willing to problem solve. In order for engagement to occur, it is imperative that diversity of thought be utilized to ensure
A sense of humor appears irrelevant but sometimes a little joke with the team can go a long way. What is your personal philosophy of leadership? The leader must be part of the team he or she is leading. Leaders have to listen to the team’s opinions and ideas and analyze the situation prior to make any decision because the leader’s decisions affect the entire team as well as each of the team members. The leader must always think about the most good for the most people while still working toward a common goal.
The independent group design could have meant, by chance, the group who were told to expect no negative withdraws, were naturally more determined people, thus increasing their chance of giving up anyway. Without a control group we cannot see how many people would have relapsed with no expectations being induced. Furthermore, self report methods were used when reporting withdrawal symptoms, which are subjective and could be influenced by demand characteristics, with people guessing the aim of the study and trying to give answers to help the experimenter. Another cognitive explanation is the self medicated model, which descried relapse as a result of the individual believing without their addiction they cannot cope, focus on a task or feel bored without their addiction to occupy them. For example a smoker may feel too stressed to function properly at work, therefore relapse and continual smoking occurred to reduce these negative
Every member is recognized for the importance of his individual contribution I feel that my leadership style is more Synergistic than any other type. The importance of his individual contribution each leadership style has both negative and positive aspects to them. While with authoritarian the employees know what is expected from them. Employees were the supervisor uses this supervisory style often views the supervisor as arrogant, hostile, boastful, and egotistical. This style can be used effectively in situations when there is little time to make a decision i.e.
Interaction with others is vital in all aspects of life whether it be at home, in the work place or out in public. I believe communication is an ongoing process and society can only get better at it the more we learn and grow. What also intrigues me about communication is the numerous ways we are able to communication with each other. When thinking about what communication is, it is hard not to instantly think about two or more people having a conversation. However actions play a major role in communication, which I think is often overlooked.
Human service professionals can aid in the process of helping the client, but it is ultimately up to the client to decide if they want to help themselves. In helping a client it is always good to listen as the client will tell you what they, are seeking and they will pass along clues that can be used to help the m return to self- help. Many times clients are not comfortable when they bring needs to the human service workers so at that time it is necessary in the helping process to break the ice and make them feel comfortable. Once that happens then the process can begin. Asking correct questions is also part of the helping process, never insinuate or ask questions that may put a client on the defense as this may lead to
The principal also feels that sensitivity and a selectiveness nature must be given to staff. He feels that staff have many things going on, time is an enemy of all and there needs to be an understanding as to what they can handle. Another factor of importance raised by the principal is the fact that he stated that what supervisors need to be conscious of is the fact that professional development should, in some cases is researched based.

Every situation is different and every person has a different reaction to situations, thus as we are constantly growing and changing, the ‘truths’ we have come to know and believe can also change. Truths in life are also very relative just because something is truthful and applicable to one area of life does not mean that the same truth can withstand in other areas, and just because it falls doesn’t mean that it is a lie. It is up to us to determine what we find to be truthful in life. Obrien intends for “The Things They Carried” to challenge the factor of absolute truth that we view so close
