My Leadership Qualities from the ACHE Exercise

My Leadership Qualities from the ACHE Exercise

I have always felt that I am a competent person when it comes to leading others. When I learned that there was an exercise to test my leadership skills and perception towards leadership, I thought that this was the best moment to evaluate my skills. I also felt that it was the right time for me to know who I am as a leader. I have a strong desire to serve others. “Others,” in this case, refers to people below me or those that do not subscribe to my beliefs. I am compassionate towards the needy. Each time I see people struggling, I feel that I have a role to play in easing their pain and helping alleviate their suffering.

I think that some of the qualities that define me as a leader spring from within. As a servant leader, I believe in improving the lives of people around me. I believe in serving and enhancing people around me and nurturing skills of others. When communicating to others, I try everything within my capacity to adhere to Greenleaf’s ten principles of a servant leader. I give people chances to express their opinion and ideas they have. I believe in the transformative leadership style. Greenleaf organization (2019) defines servant leaders as those that are compelled with the desire to serve before leading. They derive satisfaction in seeing others prosper. This is what characterizes me as a servant leader. Whenever giving instructions to my followers, I make sure that I am concise and clear to avoid confusion.

If a person asks me what defines me as a leader, I would respond that I have a strong desire to volunteer in service. I am a servant leader that is not motivated by benefits from service. Instead, I spend time working on improving my life and that of the people we work with. The American College of Healthcare Executives (ACHE) (2017) defines a leader as a person that can inspire and influence others to meet the common goals. I have encountered this criterion of leader during one of my internship programs in the past. Whenever the supervisor was not around, I made sure that I did my best under minimum supervision.
