Why I desire to be an Alpha man? The answer to that question answered in its entirety would far exceed the three page limit allotted for this essay. In the Army we are taught to K.I.S.S things meaning, keep it simple. The mission statement of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc. is to develop leaders, promote brotherhood and academic excellence, while providing service and advocacy for our communities. This mission statement embodies the backbone principles of why I desire to be an Alpha man. The way a leader is defined and remembered is not only through his actions and accolades, his followers and the leaders he developed also go into a leader’s legacy. Much like a legendary football coach, whose coaching tree goes on to do great things, I desire to join an organization that not only assist in my development as a leader, but also facilitate in the development of others as well. How could I contribute to the development of leaders? My largest contribution will come from my experience of being the United States military, where I was not only trained how to become an efficient leader, I was also taught on how to facilitate the growth and development of others leaders as well. I am able to accurately assess and evaluate strengths and weaknesses of an individual and assist in the development of a plan of action to address these areas. One of my personal beliefs is that vast knowledge is useless unless it is passed down to someone. With that being said I take every opportunity possible to share any knowledge that has helped me along the way. Having no brothers and growing up in a household full of women, I often sought out brotherhood in any possible way, whether that is in the form of schoolhouse friends, teammates, or fellow soldiers... ... middle of paper ... ...e by, because even though I may be in charge of a group of people or project, I am doing it out of servitude to the people. How can I contribute to the providing of service and advocacy to our communities? I can use my passion for helping to uplifting our communities and combine it with the dedication of any resource I have available to me to implement programs of service and advocacy in those communities. This essay is just a brief summary of why I desire to be an Alpha man and the contributions I will bring to Alpha Phi Alpha. As previously stated my fully expounded upon desires would greatly exceed the limits of this essay, so if I had K.I.S.S it into just three words, I would choose; learn, grow, and share. However, I am strong believer of deeds over words, so this essay will serve only as mental fodder and the main course will come in the form of my actions.

Did you know that many successful men and women have participated in Greek organizations throughout their college years? Many people that have participated in Greek organizations have gone on to be very successful. Former President George W. Bush was a member of Delta Kappa Epsilon at Yale University. (Besque) Delta Kappa Epsilon has dated back to 1883 when Edward Griffin Bartlett founded it. If students want to rush this particular fraternity there is certain criteria that must be met, they must have academic excellence, a high moral character, and a self respecting character. (DKE) “Nine million college students are members of a Greek organization and whether they join to make friends, build resumes, to go to parties or to learn leadership skills, they each have an incentive to change some aspect of their life.” (Examining the Benefits of Greek Life) Allowing these Greek organizations shows that successful people with positive values and goals do come out of Greek organizations. Continuing these positive organizations will allow students to surround themselves with positive students which will make for a more positive community and college
One of the most powerful ways to create and maintain a healthy work environment is by cultivating the next generation of leaders to lead by the example he or she sets. Every generation of leaders is influential in molding and shaping the generation of leaders who follow. Leaders should recognize that although they may greatly impact an organization, reign as a leader will eventually come to an end. Good leaders will notice leadership traits in employees who work for them and take the time that is needed to nurture those traits. The leader does not need to advertise the fact that they are trying to create future leaders, just live the life and demonstrate compassion, competence, and convictions to these potential leaders. Potential leaders will appreciate how their leaders act toward them and endeavor to mimic that behavior. Just like little children try to mimic and imitate their parents, in either good ways or bad ways, employees will also try to mimic and imitate their leaders. The Department of the Army is one of the largest employers in the United States and constantly looks for ways to develop leaders who will fight the nation’s wars. Field Manual (FM) 6-22 is entitled “Army Leadership: Competent, Confident, ...
As someone who returned to college after a 28-year absence, I have had the opportunity to be a leader in many of the roles I had during my career. My leadership roles have run the gamut from a team of one to one hundred, and many in-between. Regardless of the size of my team, my leadership style remained steadfast, as a democratic leader. Like Jack Welsh, former CEO of General Electric, I too “encouraged and praised his employees to work independently and to learn how to be leaders themselves (Shriberg, 2011)).” Leading and mentoring teammates to become future leaders is the single most gratifying accomplishment as a leader. I have had the pleasure to work with many fine, young talented individuals and help them develop their leadership skills. Some of them stayed within the organization to further their careers, and others left to lead other companies, but in either case, it’s very rewarding seeing others flourish. Also similar to Mr. Welch, I find that my leadership style is more of a mentor, not a manager. By leading, I can create a vision and get my team to embrace it, and when they become passionate about their work, real progress can be achieved through the 3 C’s; communication, collaboration and contribution.
