Personal Philosophy of Leadership/Followership
Transcript of Personal Philosophy of Leadership/Followership
of Leadership/Followership By: Marie Dechant The Lesson Learnt: The Impact My Philosophy Statement optimistic What I Believe to be True Evaluation In my life experiences (from being the oldest sibling, to becoming a Senior RA) what I have learnt to value most of all in terms of leadership is the ability to empower others to make positive decisions. From these experiences, I have also learnt to value the independence and responsibility I gained from those roles. Furthermore, my experience as a follower (such as when I worked as a nursing attendant and even being a student in university) I have recognized the importance of communication and the impact it has on an effective team environment. Before this class, I believed leadership involved an authentic leader who showed integrity and charisma. However, this class has made me understand a very different meaning to leadership: that in fact, it is the follower(s) who make a leader, hence, being a follower involves a lot of courage. But most importantly, the biggest value I have taken away from this class, is the importance of encouraging the heart. Because without a heartfelt interest in the pursuit, there is no reason to lead or follow anything. Without one follower, two followers, three followers or more, a leader will not be a leader. Because it is the followers that allow a leader to lead. But the followers will only follow if there is a passion for the pursuit. So, leaders can be whatever they want to be, but unless there is a common interest nobody will be leading anybody. determined responsible team player funny Integrity What I would deem as my current skills in terms of leadership/followership may not be considered in top rank for any leadership position, but they are very suitable for an effective follower. These are skills that I believe will help me pursuit my Philosophy Statement. My optimism will reflect onto others to make positive decisions, being determined will help me succeed in following my passions, and my responsibility will show that I can successfully take on an independent role. Being a team player allows the greater pursuit to be a more powerful unit, and humor will reflect on lightheartedness and the enjoyment of life. Lastly, showing integrity emphasizes that I will only follow the things in life that I believe in. While the mentioned skills may help me pursue my philosophy statement, I believe the actual act of finding that common interest will be the most challenging. For example, I don't want it to be as easy as signing up for yoga because I believe it is important to take time for myself. Rather, because of my passion for quality, compassionate nursing care, I hope to find other caregivers who possess the qualities that I wish to also portray as a nurse. And when I do encounter these type of individuals, I would want to learn from them in order to make that quality, compassionate care more powerful - even if it is just by one more person (me). As life goes on, I will continue to have varying interests in which I will want to pursue a goal/follow a dream. As of right now, things such as running the Nike Women's Half Marathon, and finding out more information on Midwifery are interests that I wish to pursue. However, I believe the hardest part is the initial interaction to find out how to pursue this passion. But I have a strategy... In order to engage in that initial interaction I will:
communicate with myself
encourage my own heart
have faith in the goal
pursue independently (not amongst the shell of others)
reveal my integrity
be positive about the outcome
and, have courage
