Last week's final definition: Being a leader is not able being able to define who we are as leaders but also be able to encourage followers, give a sense of direction and connect the whole organization or community together.
This week's definition: Being a leader is not only being able to define who we are as leaders but also be able to encourage followers, give a sense of direction, connect the whole organization or community together and make ethical decisions.
Analysis of the differences in the definitions: I added "make ethical decisions" to the previous definition. After this week's readings, I think one of the most important things to consider as leaders is to have an open-minded. When in making decisions, it is crucial to consider what is ethical and not. A lot of times, when people make decisions, it affects many people. Before we make a decision, we have to look at all the variables, possible results and make the best option overall. When we are stuck in right vs. right decisions, we need to believe in ourselves and know it is alright to make either decision.
