What defines a leader?
A leader is any one who is willing to lead. what defines a leader are the many traits that that leader has. As we discussed in inner outer circle during LA a leaders can be any one it just takes a defining moment for them to become a leader. Some people can only be defined as a leader in some situations. Also a leader can only be as great as their followers.
What type of leader are you?
I like to lead by teaching or guiding. I am in Boy scouts so I get to teach the younger scouts how to do certain scout skills. I also get to lead them on small hikes and adventures. One of the many hikes that we take during the year is Enchanted Rock. On the hike the scouts are allowed to go with friends and hike and explore around the rock. I am an older scout so I have to make sure that the younger scouts stay safe and our of harms way.
How does your personality style affect your leadership style and vice versa?
My leader ship style is effected by this because my personality being extravert means that I am a person concerned more with practical realities than with inner thoughts and feelings. to me this means that I would take the rout of working on solving problems that are practicle rather than inner problems. i would choose to solve a technical problem rather than a subconscious problem.
What did you learn about yourself that you can use to grow as a leader?
I learned that one of the major things that I lack as a leader is the ability to listen to others ideas. I need to listen and take into account others ideas so that I can help myself and them grow as people and leaders. This is a problem that because of this project i have decided to work on.
