Leadership has many aspects to it....learning from each other, keeping a morale compass, being flexible when necessary, and striving to reach common goals whether the team is 1, 10, or 100.  

Leadership is everything.  It's understanding what motivates you staff and implementing the ideas that will keep that motivation.  It's maintaining your emotions when times are tough and letting your emotions go when times are good.  It's being consistent in your decision making, removing the crazy makers, and being there when you staff needs you.  It's creating a fun environment.  It's setting and maintaining standards.  It's choosing a good attitude each day you show up to work.  The person that can do these things well typically is an affective leader.

Hello, As a leader it is important to always use empathy and listen very carefully to all of your staff. Remember we need to act professional at all times in order to show the staff the level of how we want our team to run. Make sure we use our daily core values of respect and trust in order to build dependability and a stronger team. Lastly, it isn't easy to lead but what I noticed is just like in the training, leadership can be developed, and practiced for success some day for all staff members. 

I like how this course explained different types of leadership styles, I believe it's critical to understand your style bc it can help you determine how you can affect the employees under your direct influence. 

We all somehow have a specific goal in life. From young age we dream of something or we have a wish, we want to be or to have. Discipline, the entourage, the environment, that strong desire within must be the driving force to get you there. That vision to be must be strong enough that nothing, no one can stop you. Of course, obstacles, friends even our own bad habits might keep you short of that goal transformed into a vision. It takes more than the idea to be to reach a specific goal.

To be a strategic thinker takes a concerted effort to change not just the way you think, but how one thinks about leading a team.  I beleive that great strategic thinking also clears out negative thoughts because negativity has no options and strategic thinkers always are looking for the other options.  

I have been reminded to emphasize the unique roles and responsibilities of each member as well tofocus our team discussions on problem solving.  

It may seem tricky but learning to adjust in different situations is key to understaning your team and accomplishing company goals. 

There are many types of leadership and learning to adapt between styles to accomplish overall success is what should guide our decisions and strategies. 

This course was great in identifying gifts within my team and utilizing those gifts for delegating tasks
