Effective Leadership Situational Factors Ability Routine Control Respect Leader Behaviors Listen Teamwork Loyalty Respect Leadership Ryan Alexander Leadership is not the same thing that I thought it was just three months ago. There is so much more to it than just ordering people around and making them do what you want them to do like I had once thought. In order to be an effective leader there are other people’s feelings to take into consideration. You must first know what your values, assumptions, beliefs, and expectations (VABEs) are before you can lead a group of people with a whole different set of VABEs. I learned this quickly as I began to learn about level 3 leadership. There are many problems in the world today that will take effective level three leadership to make strides in correcting these serious problems over progressing years. There are a select few of these problems that hit close to home that I would like to be able to assist in making those positive strides throughout my professional career. World hunger is an issue that affects families all over the world. My family is a very large one with my nine aunts and uncles and over eighty cousins. Thirteen of these cousins have been adopted from underdeveloped countries where they were forced to live in orphanages with barely anything to eat. When I hear them talk about this it triggers my VABEs and makes me want to help in any way possible. World hunger is only one of a few problems that have affected me and my family directly. Another problem that I don’t believe is addressed enough and should get more attention is the abuse of drugs and alcohol. I had a family member two years ago who had abused drugs and alcohol to the extreme. It actually got so bad that they lost their life two years ago. This issue obviously hits home for me and strikes up some of my VABEs. I would very much like to lead an organization down the line that deals with these issues, especially in young adults, to teach them the harmful effects and consequences that could lead from being involved with drugs and alcohol. Knowing how these different problems affected my VABEs and how I form them helped in how I constructed the interview process with my admired leader. This person that I interviewed seemed to be a very effective leader at Level 3. They seemed to have a really nice understanding of what their VABEs are and how to use them on a daily basis to get people to follow them, not only because this person is their boss, but because they are a valued member of the company and because they have good values that everyone can see and is willing to follow. 1

There were many different ideas and concepts that I learned throughout this interview. This leader had been leading at many different levels for many years. They informed me, once I had explained to them the different levels of leadership, that they had started out as a Level 1 leader. They stated that they always took the attitude that they were the boss and the employees under them should do what they say, when they
