Characteristics of a transformational leader are providing vision and direction, gains trust from others, communicates expectations and critical purposes, motivate and influence rationality, advises, and guides individuals (Robbins & Judge, 2013, p. 383).

Leadership Style An effective leader generates connections between associates of the organization for the purpose of increasing performance and accomplishing exceptional results (Sullivan & Decker, 2009). An effective leader will encourage members of the organization to collaborate by delivering motivation and direction to attain organizational goals. “One thing that all leaders have in common is one or more followers. If no one is following, one cannot be leading” (Vroom & Jago, 2007, p. 1). A leader can achieve organizational goals by interpersonal skills to persuade, influence, and guide others.
I believe that as a senior carer I have great responsibility to be a role model for all team members. My team members working under my supervision learn professional knowledge, skills, good attitude and proper behaviour from observing my work as a team leader. I have to make sure that I work as hard as possible or even harder as a team leader to give good example to everybody else. Giving example to others is one of biggest responsibilities of mine and I need to make sure that I am giving very good example so everyone else can learn from me. I know that good leader is one who also inspires other team members by my deeds which contribute in positive outcomes.
By continuing to build and train teams to be effective ultimately can produce positive results for any organization. Along with this, proper motivation and supervision is required. In some instances, teams are a direct reflection of their management and supervisors, though there are some instances in which they are not. Managers and supervisors that lack the skills to effectively train and guide their team will only set the team up for possible failure. Managers should have direct influence in the way teams operate and function.
Being a good supervisor is too important to be left to chance. Supervisors need certain skills and knowledge such as how to communicate effectively, improve productivity, and improve employee relations. First, a good supervisor should demonstrate excellent communication skills to his or employees. Employees should be constantly informed about changes in job processes, duties, and assignments. Supervisors should be able to speak their instructions clearly, so that they are well understood in order to avoid mistakes.
Kamprad encourages the workforce to feel part of the family. His leadership or managerial style would be team manager with an equal concern to results as well as people. With his lead by example mentality in addition to his willingness to admit mistakes and own up to weaknesses he instills great confidence in his commitment to the employees, relate to him on a personal level, as well as motivates them to reach their highest levels without fear of rebuke for mistakes or failures. As Kamprad is quoted as saying, “if there is such a thing as good leadership, it is to give a good example and I have to do so for all the IKEA employees” (Nelson & Quick, 2013, p.466). In following with his leadership orientation, the employees at IKEA would most likely fall in the effective followers type of followership as defined by Nelson
I think the humanistic-encouraging trait is important because like any other leader, people must trust you, set goals that are attainable, learn how to resolve issues in a constructive manner, and encourage your followers. I enjoy listening to people’s problems and helping them think positive and find the healthiest or best solution. I am normally the person my friends come to when they need to talk to someone. I believe as a manager a person must have a sense of how a person is and deal with each person individually if needed so each person as an understanding of what is the mission is. Controlling as a manager is something I believe I will have to work on.
