Leadership

Advisement:

Leadership is the art of directing a group of people to accomplish the stated and implied intent of an organization. To lead, there must be an established direction and sufficient motivation to move in that direction. My leadership philosophy is based on the foundation that all people are motivated by

  • Meaningfulness, a sense of purpose.
  • A sense of competency.
  • A sense of volition or control.

An organization must provide its people with meaningfulness, opportunities to utilize and develop competencies, and a sense of control. In an environment where the system and structures support the people—who support the customer—the leader’s job becomes that of a servant leader. The chief function of the leaders are to communicate the vision through action, help remove barriers and obstacles, gain resources for the organization, create an open dialogue within the organization, sell the organization to the community and funders, facilitate planning, measure and control the day-to-day variances that may occur, and help the organization learn and grow.

In an environment where the system and structures support the people—who support the customer—the leader’s job becomes that of a servant leader.  We believe that the chief functions of the leader is to communicate the vision through action, help remove barriers and obstacles, gain resources for the organization, create an open dialogue within the organization, sell the organization to the community and funders, facilitate planning, measure and control the day-to-day variances that may occur, and help the organization learn and grow.

Leaders still must manage the day-to-day, but through leadership, the organization develops the capacity, systems, and resources to maintain a path towards its vision without letting obstacles, restrictions, and constraints get in the way.  Practicing management by walking around and taking opportunities to teach, coach, and mentor staff endears the people in the organization to what the organization professes.  Management by exception and observations, measures, and customer feedback help alert a leader to issues requiring management intervention.
