Personal Leadership Plan
Leadership is about vision, principle and integrity. I would define it as a power to motivate others through your words and deeds. And Ethical leadership is ethically motivating others in ethical directions. It's knowing your core values and having the courage to live them in service of the common good.

Humans are most important and treating them with respect and dignity is the essence of Human Services. Knowledge and Courage are the two most important ingredients of Ethical leadership. Another important pillar of this building is the imagination. Lack of imagination stops you from looking beyond the usual confines of an issue. The ultimate goal of a leader is always recognition and fame but of an ethical leader is the Respect in the hearts of the people. The type of Human Services job that I strive to have one day would be either in a Cardiologist clinic as a Medical Administrator or in a clinic that helps individuals overcome substance abuse problems.

As a leader in my field, it would be my responsibility to make sure that the staff under me was following all the rules of the program to the letter. It would also be my responsibility to help them make the right decision if they were having issues with a certain case, no matter what my personal feelings were about the situation. My job would ultimately be to follow the law and protect the clients that come to our service, as well as to protect the employees that work under me.
