To accomplish their jobs and to encourage others, people employ a range of leadership styles. A transformational leader is one that inspires others and shares a clear vision. Transactional leadership rewards those who deliver high-quality outcomes and penalizes those who don’t meet the goal. Leaders practice servant leadership by empowering and delegating responsibilities to subordinates (Wong & Page, 2003). To determine which leadership style will best help them achieve their professional and personal goals, a person must conduct an internal assessment.
According to the servant leadership instrument and MQ, I’m more in line with transformational leadership and servant leadership. It is my passion to help people realize their full potential and put others’ interests first. Leadership is a way to help others achieve common goals. People want leaders who can listen to them, recognize their efforts, and interact with them with humility (Wong & Page, 2003). To provide the right environment for workers to express their concerns, offer suggestions, and recover their energy when they feel down, I try to reduce structural barriers when engaging them. Because active listening has a positive impact on the relationships and the quality communication between partners it’s something that I want to foster. To build trust and strengthen my staff’s skills, I assign tasks. Delegating tasks boosts confidence and shows that people value their effort. Delegating and mentoring young people has helped foster openness and strengthen friendships between individuals of different cultures.
Additionally, I have a personal goal to achieve. To guide my actions, I set SMART goals. My professional and personal objectives are what motivate me. Visions for growth and improvement are the motivation behind setting goals. I endeavor to maintain my pledges and commitments, and I plan the operations to promote efficiency and effectiveness (Bass & Avolio, 2004). I have become more open to different ideas and more open to diversity. I have been able to share my vision with people from different cultures and professions and to motivate them to achieve sustainable goals. Transformative leaders are more open to taking on responsibility. I hate being aimless and lacking direction. I am willing to take responsibility for my professional and personal growth.
As a leader, my legacy would be to help others reach their potential regardless of how I develop myself. To empower others, it means empowering them to grow and achieve greater independence. You don’t have to hold a high position to show servant leadership. The emphasis should instead be placed on ideal ideals. Leadership that demonstrates empathy is one who listens to others and serves with humility. My legacy will be one of humility, empathy and mentoring. Leaders who communicate well with minimal formality are preferred by people. Being receptive to other perspectives and building interpersonal connection fosters an atmosphere in which individuals may attain their full potential (Wong & Page, 2003). Additionally, I would like to leave a legacy of leadership by inspiring others towards their goals and dreams. Visionary leaders have compelling visions which persuade others of a specific course. My goal is to increase visual quality by promoting diversity, inclusion, cultural tolerance, and multiculturalism.
