I do not like dealing with impersonal reasoning since I do not understand or appreciate its merit, and am unhappy in situations where I am forced to deal with logic and facts without any connection to a human element. My main interest in life is giving love, support, and a good time to other people. I am focused on understanding, supporting, and encouraging others. I make things happen for people, and get my best personal satisfaction from this.
I lead through personal enthusiasm and take a participative stance in managing people and projects. I am responsive to followers' needs. I challenge the organization to make actions congruent with values and inspire change. I may best be described as a smooth-talking persuader.I am a natural when it comes to motivating people --- even motivating them to do something they may not initially have wanted to do. My focus and direction is toward other people and I am highly skilled in understanding others' needs and motivations. I have the capacity to size up a situation intuitively, and in a very caring and concerned way, say just the right thing.This is part of my success as a leader. I usually know just what the group needs or how to reach the group's goal.
I believe that the most important goal of education is to learn how to get along with different kinds of people. I am interested in literature and tolerant of theory. I do my best thinking aloud, bouncing ideas off others and achieve through perseverance and hard work. I want learning to pertain to human values and growth.
My Conflict Style
I tend to become pessimistic and self-critical, and turn patronizing at times. I sometimes insist on maintaining the illusion of harmony, although people know there's a major problem at hand. I constantly search for the "truth" that will explain everything. Some stressors for me include having my beliefs challenged, being unfairly or harshly
criticized by someone I trust or hold dear, and people who are unwilling to try to resolve personal differences. Part of the problem can be self-inflicted. I sometimes misinterpret the actions of others as having negative intentions or the start of something bad.
My Preferred Leadership Practice
A great part of my leadership style is what I actually prefer, and this is due to my deep self-awareness. The high emotional quotient of a leader is still what I believe to be the greatest aspect of successful leadership. However, I want to focus on being more "informing" than "directing". The directing style is inclined to "urge ask, tell."It is more on "moving forward" and it sounds "definite."The informing style, on the other hand, tends to "describe, explain, inquire, inform."It is "eliciting, open, flowing." Everyone prefers and naturally appreciates clear communications --- true leadership is "role-directing," meaning a comfort degree with telling other people what to do.
My Personal Beliefs
"Rascals" of different organisations nowadays operate from the line of reasoning that all is fair, depending on who acts on or thinks of it first. Those with high ethical standards have the additional edge of reliable and committed staff who do their best for their clients and the organisation. Success can come by means of shortcut and callousness, but it means more when it is gained through ethical conduct.
