The Power of Leadership
Leadership requires a certain moral compass in certain individuals. Leaders today develop a standard of morals and values that they hold true to themselves. Diving into different strengths and skills that leaders have has broadened my horizons what a leader looks like. I used to think that leaders had to be a strong and up front leader. Learning about different leadership positions and how leaders can be quite and soft spoken. In high school I was always taught that I was leader but I did not know what that looked like. This class has taught me about how leaders bring different strengths to the table. With strengths like Woo, achiever, relator, adaptability, and include I did not really see the point of someone who had strengths like learner or context. These skills are important though. Without all the skills you end up with a lopsided view on leadership and become an ineffective leader. Leadership is something that develops over time. I feel as time has gone I have become more of a leader and my understanding of leadership has expanded.
Developing a personal leadership statement is one that takes time and growth. It could be something that changes over time and where you are in life. My leadership statement that I have developed at this point in my life is, Time will take you where you need to go and teach you the necessary skills to do what you need to do. This statement describes my life in a pretty accurate way. At this stage in my life I have a lot of learning to do in regards to leadership. I am young and although people classify me as a leader I feel that there’s a lot that I need to work on. This will come with time, as long as I am immersing myself in leadership opportunities and learning from leaders who are experienced leaders. As time passes we learn the necessary skills we need for our future. God is not one who lets us walk into battle unequipped with the skills we need. This statement will guide me in my leadership...
