Last Week's Definition: Leadership is a group or person's ability to work individually and in teams with a set of goals for motivation. Leaders should be able to know their own ethics and differentiate between which are right from wrong. Most importantly leaders must be trustworthy, caring, honest, open and respectful.
This Week's Definition: Leadership is a group or person's ability to work individually and in teams with visions and goals. Leaders should know their own morals and ethics in order to lead a group of people. Also, leaders need to have self confidence, respect, trust, care and be open minded.
Analysis: For this week's definition I left the first sentence the same because I still believe that leadership can be shown through a person individually or as a team and with a vision in mind. For the second sentence I changed it a little bit because I think that leaders should know their own ethics but with their morals too. It's essential for leaders to know what is right from wrong and what to believe. Most importantly leaders need self confidence which was something i added too. As Boyatzis (2006) stated, "People change. People change in desired ways but not without intentional efforts," (p, 607-623). I agree with Boyatzis's statement because leaders should always be open up to changes even if it's intentionally or not.
