Leadership PhilosophyAt the beginning of this class we were asked what our definition for leadership and management was, and by the end of the class I discovered that I was way off track. My original definition of leadership was that is was “displayed by a confident and intelligent person in which other people follow.” My definition for management was a “group of people who control others as a job.” Throughout this class I learned that there were many more dimensions to each. I applied all of this information into my new definition of leadership, a multi-dimensional set of characteristics a person must have to be effective in any situation. I believe a leader needs to display all of the positive characteristics discussed in class in order to fit in any condition they are placed into. I know that as a leader myself I must be able to adapt to the circumstances I am in at that exact moment and know exactly how I need to act in order to run my industry effectively. In class we went over a C-POLE model (Cieslak, 2014) that I found very applicable to the best types of leaders. This model states that you must control, plan, organize, lead and evaluate. I looked at this model in the eyes of a coach meaning that thecoach needs to:1.Control- control the situation you are in, make sure your players know that you are in charge.2.Plan- plan what you want to do with your team, what the most effective overall style of coaching and play is needed for your team.3.Organize- I think organization is the most important. In order to show your leadership and be a good one you need to have everything you planned organized.4.Lead- obviously you need to be able to follow through with all of the previoussteps and carry it out in your leadership.
