My personal leadership philosophy
I believe in leading others through respect and encouragement. to be a leader is to be able to relate to WHOMEVER you're leading and lead them in the best way for everyone involved. a leader should consider everyone's ideas and input to get the united group to the common goal.
My leadership style
Blue: "I encourage cooperation and create a climate of freedom for all. I'm facilitative and people-centered."
Using this leadership style
- As a Residential Learning Assistant, my blue leadership style shows when I make time to meet with my students every month to hear how they are doing and to recommend any resources to them that they may need.
- As a bridal consultant, I use my blue leadership style when I take time to get to know my brides at the beginning of every appointment. I must listen to their story and to what they want in a wedding dress, and use that information to provide them with a great experience that they will always remember.
