Personal Leadership Philosophies

Assignment: Personal Leadership Philosophies

Many of us can think of leaders we have come to admire, be they historical figures, pillars of the industry we work in, or leaders we know personally. The leadership of individuals such as Abraham Lincoln and Margaret Thatcher has been studied and discussed repeatedly. However, you may have interacted with leaders you feel demonstrated equally competent leadership without ever having a book written about their approaches.

What makes great leaders great? Every leader is different, of course, but one area of commonality is the leadership philosophy that great leaders develop and practice. A leadership philosophy is basically an attitude held by leaders that acts as a guiding principle for their behavior. While formal theories on leadership continue to evolve over time, great leaders seem to adhere to an overarching philosophy that steers their actions.

What is your leadership philosophy? In this Assignment, you will explore what guides your own leadership.

To Prepare:

· Identify three scholarly resources, in addition to this Module’s reading, (see attached PDF document) that evaluate the impact of leadership behaviors in creating healthy work environments.

Ariel, I agree with you; one attribute of leadership is a relator. 

Rath (2007) describes a relator as somebody who finds strength in friendships and can understand their friends’ feelings, making them genuine. A leader who is willing to invest time and energy in building a friendship with coworkers and subordinates to know them and understand them better can bring great success to the organization. Building genuine friendships can help leaders work towards improving the organization. 

A relator works well with others, including working towards reaching goals together (Strengths Mining. n.d.). Nevertheless, one of the weaknesses of a relator is that they might be tempted to stay within their circle of friends instead of building new friendships.
