This week, I have a new perspective on leadership after I went over self evaluation as provided by Lee and King (2001) and Terry (2001). I think leadership is choices of actions made consciously and unconsciously from one's personal values and beliefs. When I discovered my personal core values and belief, I could relate with how I acted in my previous leadership experience. Apparently, one of my core values is family and I believe that leadership is spiritual. I was once a youth group leader for a kids program and I motivated them to put their best effort to excel in the academic field because God will eventually reward it with success.
Despite having a new definition of leadership, I still believe that my previous definitions are valid.
