Leadership is the essence to research hard and soft tactics and the findings to the concept of how neuroplasticity plays a role in teaching those you lead practical skills (Feser, 2016). Leaders are born to influence with the ability to lead with humility, wisdom and the courage to guide individuals, teams or an organization. As I awaken my leadership spirit of who I am as a leader, what is my leadership purpose, how do I remain authentic, and what might be some insight and strategies to profoundly ensure that I am respected and not popular in the role of leadership.
Driven and focus harnessing the qualities to have a heart to care, empower, but also, practice the importance to prioritize. A leader should know that building structure is a part of the job, but reflection of self-behavior is the key to inspiring those to follow my goals and objectives as a leader. My approach to accomplishing to building a foundation of core values has a systematic and clearly and defined of educating staff and asking the necessary questions when plans don’t pull through. I am a dreamer who think deep and focused, disciplined, achiever, motivator and consistent.
My leadership purpose is to create a foundation of diversity in every organization I work; establish peace and harmony, stimulate growth, identify human need by verbal interaction and always daring to be authentic. Most importantly staying true to a path to help everyone around find their purpose and show them that taking risk is a part of being an authentic leader. Influencing other leaders to not fear when they don’t know the answer, lead with passion and not control. Purpose is not a list of education, experience, and skills you have gathered in your life (Craig, 2014). Meaning, the courage to be real, trust your team, delegate authority to create leaders, lead with emotional intelligence, and last, never divert from the purpose.
As a leader, remaining true to your purpose and values is authentic, when leading a team and or organization, I am confident and comfortable in my speeches, direction and views; this builds trust with your staff. As for my colleagues and staff they will have the comfortability to express ideas, plans and strategies without the worries of ‘What If ‘portraying this elite character trait illustrates an adaptable behavior which reflects intelligence and shows awareness and the effect you have on other people, as well as the potential to influence (McNamara, n.d).
Insights and Strategies
Grit is the perseverance to keep moving when the organization has consistent changes and never faltering to being anything less of a great leader and if you fail- fail forward. Fail forward, is something that I must understand is a part to becoming a outstanding leader, but learning from that failure is the most important part of building character. Professor Christopher Wilson mentioned, “Wisdom teaches us to learn from our mistakes, follow through, keep learning, celebrate the fact that you stuck it out when others did not” (“Can you tolerate failure,” week 5, 2018). Keep pushing and learning, educating, listening and listening some more. Incorporating strategies into my regimen as a leader helps to process and focus on goals, learn behaviors, teach me the ‘how’ to develop working relationships. This will allow me to retain a high reliability of all levels within the organizations and most of all demonstrate through action the support of the vision with deliberative thinking and day to day role model behavior.
This course has taught me how to be a leader and dig deep to find those daunting or passionate questions, I never thought to ask myself before. The most important teaching and listening of this lesson is…remain authentic to yourself and everyone you encounter. When your authentic you can tap into some ideas, notions or strategies without having a blocked your mind with “I think I should be like”. Your creativity is in your authentic leadership. I am determined to live this out all the years of my life in health care, to gear towards the high achievement of success. I would like to end this paper – with a special thanks to Professor Christopher Wilson, thank you for not being easy, but teaching and engaging with each of us, and having the passion to want to get to know each of us individually in our walk as leaders. You’re are the true reflection of what a leader is, hopefully one day I can say, “The student has achieved the professor teachings.”
