that if all group members are on the same page, things will run much smoother and efficiently. 4. What guides my actions as a leader? - I think guides for my actions as a leader include certain leaders within my life, and applying the action they present to my own leadership style. For instance, Joel Yip Chuck, my boxing coach, has been a great influence and guide for my actions. I see the way he works with people, young and old, as well as in some cases handicapped, and how he adapts to each scenario that’s in front of him. He makes special adjustments to his classes and training sessions depending on the trainees needs, disabilities and more to make sure they are happy with the turnout, while minimizing the possibility of injury, stress or other issues. 5. Where am I headed, as a leader? - I believe I am heading in a great direction as a leader. I think my style is very caring and understanding which isn’t very common in today’s society. If I were to be a leader or boss of a company one day, I’d be extremely understanding with my employees and coworkers, without allowing them to take advantage of me. One thing I have learned from proper guidance and seeing great leadership skills be displayed in the past, is that everyone has a personal life and as long as the
work gets done regardless of where it is completed and the customers are happy, then there shouldn’t be any issues. 6. What is my role as a leader? - My role as a leader is to make sure all the tasks get completed, group members, customers and everyone involved is happy and understands all the concepts regarding the work fully as well as showing lots of initiative and work ethic throughout the process. I believe that if I stay true to these roles, that everyone involved, including myself, will be pleased with the turnouts of each scenario and assignments in the future. 7. What do my followers expect of me? - My followers expect honesty and proper communication to get the tasks done. If at any time in a group setting that there isn’t honesty, things never work out well. I believe trusting in each of your group members to get the job done well and on time is a big part of leadership, and if you display that to your group members, they will act the same towards each other. 8. What are the outcomes I will strive for as a leader? - Like I mentioned in question 6, I want everyone involved to be happy with the outcomes of each scenario that is to come. By everyone involved I mean group members, coworkers, customers, management etc. I believe if this is one of the main outcomes that I strive for, my workplace will be a much happier and enjoyable place to be part of and make life much easier regarding work and leadership. 9. How will my leadership reflect my mission and my core values?
