Transcript of Leadership
After researching and developing my knowledge of leaders and the skills and qualtities it takes to be a leader, I am now in a position where I know where my strongest points are in leadership.
Examples of my leadership
I was elected as chair person of the pupil council in primary 7. This highlighted my creative, free-thinking side as I had to fight off competition and to do this I had to come up with better ideas that would make people vote for me. My belbin report also highlighted my imaginative side and the joharis windows exercise also showed that my fellow classmates think that I am spontaneous and creative.
Being a prefect in S6 doesn't require much leadership however it does require having leadership skills such as communication and being able to work in a team. My belbin report highlighted that I work better independently however from personal experience I know I can work well within a team also. As a prefect I have to be dependable so house captains and teachers can rely on me completing tasks. Being a prefect means I have to be able to motivate pupils during house activities which is also a skill within leadership.
The Five Styles Of Leadership
Examples Of Good Leaders
What is Leadership?
Leadership is something essential to any group or organization. The definition of leadership seems so bland because a leader is someone with many qualities.
Leadership is the art of leading others to deliberately create a result that wouldn't have happened otherwise. It requires a person to take order and action in stressful circumstances.
Good Leaders are able to create good results by enlisting the help of others. This means that they can take control of a group and steer them in the right direction.
Good leadership is essential for corporate success
Being a leader means you are able to accomplish tasks through others.
Leadership also means that you have a dominating power over your people this is essential especially for managers of huge corporations.
It involves having a clear vision and sharing that vision with others and making the vision become a reality
Characteristics of a good leader;
Ability to motivate
This is a french saying for 'leave it be' and it describes leaders who allow their people to work on their own.
This leadership does not require someone with great leadership skills as most laissez-faire leaders leave their teams to work on their own.
This type of leadership is more for laid back managers and isn't the most efficient style of leadership for a big corporation.
Autocratic leadership is when leaders have a lot of power and control over many people.
The benefits of autocratic leadership is that it's incredibly efficient. Decisions are made quickly, and work gets done efficiently however the staff have very little opportunity to make suggestions or contribute their ideas.
Autocratic leadership is often best used in crises, when decisions must be made quickly and without hesitation.
Participative leaders or democratic leaders are leaders which make the final decisions but they include team members in the decision-making process.
They encourage creativity and team building and welcome ideas from staff. It boosts employees confidence as it makes them feel like their opinion matters.
Managers using the transactional leadership style receive certain tasks to perform and provide rewards or punishments to team members based on performance results.
Employees are motivated to do better and improve their work because they may gain a reward
The transformational leadership style depends on high levels of communication from management to meet goals.
Transformational leaders are inspiring because they expect the best from everyone on their team as well as themselves. This leads to high productivity and engagement from everyone in their team.
William Wallace led Scotland into battle and it resulted in the Scots achieving victory. To achieve this victory William Wallace had to die and can therefore be seen as a martyr. He showed courage and bravery even though he was taking a risk and going against the King. William Wallace can be viewed as a leader because he used communication to make soldiers aware of their position and the tasks they had ahead. William Wallace also had the convidence to face the English and from myths apparently showed no fear at his execution. William Wallace also had the ability to motivate his troops and encourage them to stand up against the English. From previous slides these are all skills that successful leaders have.
Emmeline was born on the 14th of July in 1858. Emmeline Pankhurst was famous in the late 19th century for being the leader of the Suffragettes. The suffragettes was a group of women that fought for womens rights using violent methods this included: organising ralleys, chaining themselves to gates, starving themselves and they even sent letter bombs. Women all over the world looked up to Emmeline and viewed her as a role model as she took charge in declaring that women get rights.
Emmeline Pankhurst can relate to William Wallace as they both used violence to gain their independence. Woman all over the world looked up to Emmeline and she can still be seen as a role model today.
Albert Einstein was born on the 14th of March in 1879 and died on the 18th of April 1955.
"The leader is one who, out of the clutter, brings simplicity... out of discord, harmony... and out of difficulty, opportunity." Albert Einstein
Myself as a leader
William Wallace was born around 1272 and died on the 23rd of August 1305.
Albert Einstein can be viewed as a leader as he left a significant and lasting impression on the world which only leaders can do. Einstein is considered as the most influential physicist of the 20th century. Albert is a very unique leader as he is not like Emmeline Pankhurst or William Wallace but can still be considered as a leader because he influenced so many people in the world of science. Many scientist still look at Albert as a role model.
After researching and learning about leadership it has given an insight into the various skills and qualities needed to be a leader. I now know the many types of leaders that you can get and what type of a leader I would make. Being a leader is not an easy task
