reach deadlines, and this sometimes has me feeling burnt out. An example of when I neglect myself is when I receive compliments from my peers. I receive compliments all the time for my hard work and the way I am organized, however immediately I brush the compliments aside and move on to the next topic. I am not a fan of being the person receiving the attentions within my peer work group. Another weakness I portray is an abuse of power with certain job tasks. I am very detailed oriented, and like things done a certain way, if there is something that messes up my day, I get a little defensive and upset. I am very grounded on my procedures and will let my peers know if something doesn’t go the way I have planned it. One example in my position is the way certain jobs are filed away. When my supervisor received her work promotion, she passed on one of the job tasks to me. I streamlined the process and made it easy for everyone in our department 6

C200 Task 2 to understand and follow. When our department had a shift in job position, one person was not grasping the process, and I had to train her more than once. I was very protective of the process I developed because it worked for the rest of my peers. It took a couple of times to train my peer on the process and afterward she was able to follow the process, and she also resolved her differences on the job filing process. Similar to a transformational leader, I like to develop easier processes that everyone can follow. “Transformational leaders clarify the role and task requirements, initiate structure, and try to be considerate” [ CITATION Ric14 \l 1033 ]. And lastly, because Transformational leaders are detail oriented and prefer to handle tasks on their own, I prefer to perform my own tasks. I like to have control over the details and fear that the next person may miss a step. One example of this is a process that I handle every morning; this task includes notifying Medicare of a Hospice admission. I fear that if I allow someone else to perform this notification to Medicare, they may make a mistake and it could become costly. Because this task requires a certain skill, I prefer to handle every aspect from start to finish. This task is something that if not done correctly can cost the organization thousands of dollars. As a transformational leader, delegation is something that I need to work on. “Great leaders delegate power to their followers in order to operationalize their vision into reality and give confidence to their followers to accomplish their work with maximum efforts” [ CITATION Ali11 \l 1033 ] A2c: Theory-Based Changes Because Transformational leaders are often seen as role models, they must carry enthusiasm because they are often judged by their character, actions, and behaviors [ CITATION Bot14 \l 1033 ]. Because I love to joke around a lot, I should be careful and carry a more 7
