Some of the change is factory induced to meet market or customer requirements and I see the most important change that occurs that requires management and individual workforce support is our direct customer change (change activity to the manufacturing of their machines that are in full production with rigid milestones and calculated cycle time requirements). As noted in our course material in Chapter 3.2, Personality Approach, The Big Five Personality Characteristics with number five being Openness – Joseph Weiss specifies that the opposite of openness is close-mindedness which indicates inflexibility while not having resilience and not being able to adapt to change and that close-mindedness is not a contributing factor to the overall influence of leadership and effective performance (2015).Several ways change can impact my professional work and leadership and my personal life are represented from the video Change is Good… You Go First [Screen name] (2009): Leadership at Work:Change can be used to inspire my team to help identify what is good about the change activity if done effectively and for the right reason.Do not reinvent the wheel if it is not broken but if it is, make the necessary change to help improve processes and efficiencies.For me to go beyond just being a good leader, I need to allow my team to have the tools necessary to inspire their own confidence that will help integrate my team into whatever change activity they might be presented with. If I believe they will fail, they will. If I believe they will be successful, my team will come through if provided the right opportunities and tools to deal with the proposed change activity.Leadership in my Personal Life:Be a good example to everyone I meet. Whether in life in general or professional business activities, always work to set a good example and let my actions speak. Others will notice.Celebrate every win – reward and appreciate those around me that help get the small and large things in my life done.As quoted in Chapter 3.3, Emotional Intelligence (EQ): “…they [leaders] are able to influence others, setting the tone for a caring or high-achieving company culture, managing conflict, leading change, and guiding people to achieve extraordinary visions and organizational goals” (Weiss, 2015). As a professional leader I work to set the proper tone and as I stated, be a good example of what to do when changes are necessary and help enhance my team to do their best to achieve the proper controls throughout whatever change process might come our way.ReferencesChange is Good… You Go First [Screen name].

I especially liked the inspirational quotes.These are the three ways I believe change can impact my leadership at work.The first way I believe chance can impact my leadership at work is by focusing on my strengths more. I have been at my current job for over a year and a half now and I feel I have grown leaps and bounds since I first started. At first communication was very hard for me, I lacked confidence in myself partly because I hadn’t gotten used to my surroundings or co-workers yet. I was also being groomed for a lead teacher position more quickly than others because they needed one. I would focus on the small things I did wrong and let them fester away at me instead of focusing on the things I was doing right. I mean I also needed to develop the areas I was struggling with so I took the constructive criticism and turned my weaknesses into strengths. So instead of letting an issue build I talk it out with my co-teacher or supervisor. I focus on daily communication with my co-teachers, we share classroom duties and communicate so much better. I set attainable goals for myself at work and it has been making me be the best me. According to Conlon “One of the many lessons I have learnt over the years is that focusing on too many things at once will not enable you to achieve your best results. But even more important than that is to ensure that your focus is on what you do best, this is when you will do your best work and get your best results”.Conlon, C. (2013, October 09). Why Focusing on Your Strengths is the Best Philosophy. Retrieved from https://www.lifehack.org/articles/productivity/why…The second way I believe change can impact my leadership at work is by starting to believe in myself more. I have always been a self-conscious person. If someone didn’t know me they would assume I was very quiet when actually I have a big personality. I always try to be positive. When I show others that I believe in myself then that makes them believe in me and my abilities. I work with children and they can immediately pick up if I am in a good mood or not and they respond appropriately. When I think positively, positive, good things happen and I can inspire others.According to Weiss (as cited in Dinh et al., 2014) “Leaders are influential in determining the fate of their organizations through their decisions, strategies, and influence on others”. The third way I believe chance can impact my leadership at work is by simplifying my message to others. Sometimes I have something very simple I want to say but I get very shy, and start to mumble on. I have so much bravado before hand but when push came to shove I would freeze. Now I have learned being simple and direct is the way to go and inspire others to take the same path.The most important thing I learned from this video clip is to just go with the flow, not overthink things, think positively and not let mountains turn into molehills. As Theodore Roosevelt said “Believe you can and you’re halfway there.”Weiss, J. (2015). An Introduction to Leadership(2nd ed.).Question 2: Read the article, “Doing Good Requires Authentic Leadership (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site..” Based on the content presented in the article, why is it important for a leader to be consistently authentic with his or her stakeholders? How can an authentic leader’s sense of purpose, values and relationships connect with and improve his or her community? How does a leader’s authenticity and integrity relate to servant leadership?

I am much patriotic a have a belief in a less global corporation economy.Much of what I saw in the video clip placates to a corporation trying to win the rights or vote of those using or “want to use”their product (Shinha, 2013). I believe if a corporation wants to live they must find sustainability they do so by using their product in which they offer something better.If a leader has “personality” (Weiss, 2015) it could lead to so much more foresight than a bad leader. For instance, would you be likely to perform under somebody who listens to your response and give sight feedback or somebody who always dwells on the bad and does not give you room?Extraversion(Weiss, 2015) as read in the text talks about being energized, talkable, servant. This is one part a great leader sometimes you cannot crack as you need their buy-in. It’s just like ethics, you cannot put it in them but you can get it out of them. Also, I found once you lose a person its hard to get them back.Sinha, P. (2013. Dec 20). Doing GOOD Requires Authentic Leadership. Forbes.

Employees want to believe that what they do for work matters and they are part of something more. Consumers want to feel their money is not just being spent to pad a corporation’s bottom line. Authentic Leaders are people who know who they are, what they believe and value, and act upon those tenets transparently with their followers (2018). It becomes critical to always embrace these attributes in order to be taken seriously. Authentic leaders can connect with and improve their community by being champions for actual causes that are important to that community (2013). Ideally a leader’s values will already include a commitment to community in which they serve. A recent article in the Journal of Managerial Issues, cites Servant Leadership as a “leader’s deep rooted desire to make a positive difference in other’s lives” (2018). This definition is directly related to a leader’s authenticity and integrity. If a leader is seen as someone who is always trying to make things better, then this sincerity should ultimately translate with any action. References Feng, W., Li, Y., Zhang, Y., & Liu, S. (2018).
