To me, leadership is a necessary drive to motivate others and take charge of the challenges and encounters that are occur daily. Incorporating the idea of personal vision into a leadership vision is an important concept that I found to be extremely relevant this week that was encompassed in Lee and King's reading. I actually found myself sitting down, making a list of the questions I felt were important to tackle within my personal life. After journaling them I can see how they correlate with leadership aspects of life. Leadership is the process of turning daydreams and visions into proactive steps to the life that these dreams depict.
This initial definition coincides with the readings for this previous week, especially Daniel Goleman's article, "Leadership That Get's Results." On page four of the article, a striking statement regarding leadership is made, that makes a great statement on leadership, claiming most high performing workers and leaders are driven not only by money but also by results; an important drive for a leader to exude. Leadership is also using a variety of different commanding techniques within the context of the setting (Goleman).
