Leadership encompasses the ability to motivate, supervise, and manage a group of people to act towards achieving a particular goal. The ability to lead primarily depends on a person’s core values, such as respect, trust, and integrity (Agrawal & Krishnan, 2000). The foundation of my personal leadership model is based on four key dimensions, which include personal, interpersonal, societal, and organizational values.
Regarding personal values, I possess several positive principles that drive my leadership characteristics. These attributes include openness to novelty and self-transcendence. The values are significantly related to the development of consultative and participative characters at a personal level (Melvin, 1973). They drive my relationships with other people and help me to address intergroup tensions.
Organizational values, on the other hand, create a sense of identity and belonging within a team. Among these values are authenticity and integrity, which are both parts of my personal leadership model. For example, I have nurtured authenticity by being consistent and transparent in my actions. These principles allow me to influence organizational dynamics positivelymanagement.
Finally, societal values are attributes that enable a leader to distinguish between desirable or undesirable behaviors. They include principles such as patriotism and respect for human dignity (Core Leadership Values, 2019). These values have significantly contributed to my understanding, appreciation, and acceptance of diversity. Thus, as a leader, I do not discriminate others based on their religion, race, gender, economic status, or ethnicity. Furthermore, I have developed the character of charitable disposition that has won me the respect of other people.
In sum, my personal leadership model consists of several personal, interpersonal, societal, and organizational values. In particular, attributes, such as openness, self-transcendence, authenticity, integrity, patriotism, and respect are the context of core values upon which leadership occurs in my life. They allow me to mentor and motivate other people to make a positive difference.
