I have always been an energetic and driven leader. My strengths are in being an activist and in being goal-oriented. I can be intense, and when I have a vision I follow through to reach my goal. I am very passionate about whatever I am pursuing!
The questions of equality and justice have lived in me since high school, when I was studying cultural disparities and how the segregation that happens in schools is related to achievement. What has developed out of all of this is a passion for collaboration. I love working with like-minded people to close those gaps.
Personal leadership style. Emerging sages place great value on their personal leadership style. Sometimes this is reflected in aggressive action, taking situations by the throat and making them work. Others identify themselves as risk-takers and depend on learning from their mistakes. At times, personal style involves getting others on board and leading through them, or by “walking their talk” and leading by example. The leadership style of some emerging sages is born out of a principle-centered value system. And there are those who love to exercise their leadership quietly behind the scenes while helping others to achieve great things:
I definitely have a personal style which some people like and others don’t. I am pretty straightforward and honest with people. As is typical of politics, half of the people hate you and you can never win. I have never been afraid to tell people what my beliefs are and to justify my decisions. And I think people respect me because I don’t lie to them. I also have a personal philosophy: I do what I do for the good of the community, not for any personal agenda that I might have.
Being principle-centered is really important. Everything I do is interconnected and has a higher purpose, so it motivates me to give my absolute best in all that I do. It is based in a love for people that came from watching my dad and mom and others I know. Anyone I have ever looked up to has been a servant type of a person—all deeply based in faith.
My main strength lies in quiet action. I do not need the limelight, but I like to see a product at the end of the day. I like to sponsor events, donate merchandise for good causes, and step-up and accomplish something good. I have skills in organizing and seeing things through to successful completion. As a leader, I am the quiet support behind the scenes that makes things happen.Download Article 1K Club
