Leadership Journey Eighth

| No Comments

There are many different styles of leadership. A good leader is able to change the way they lead in every situation that they are in. I believe that leadership is being able to lead any amount of people in a group. A leader leads these people in an organized manner and many times is aiming to accomplish a goal. The followers of a leader require trust, compassion, stability, and hope to come from the leader; without these four contributions, it may not be possible for leaders to lead their followers. For a leader to make good decisions, they need to understand the difference between egocentric thinking and ethical thinking. Depending on the hierarchial structure of a group, there are different styles of leadership that can be used. A leader can use one of three philosophies to help them make decisions. Leaders must adjust their style of leadership depending on the economic environment in which they are in. "A leader us one who is able to effect positive change for the betterment of others, the community, and society. Leadership involves collaborative relationships that lead to collective action grounded in the shared values of people who work together to effect positive change." (Astin)

No changes this week because I feel that my leadership definition is well rounded. I feel that leaders focus on the communication aspect of leadership after they have begun their journey as leaders.

New: It is important to understand the concept of change and why and how people change in order to have good leadership skills.

Why: The reading I read this week told us about the importance of realizing change and how it impacts your group.

(Astin) A leader needs to learn how to view themselves objectively while also looking at the situations they are in from an outside perspective.
