Hosmern (1995) and Nyhan (2000) note that both true and transformational leadership are authentic when grounded on moral foundations. As such, trust is a component of transformational leadership contains four aspects: idealised influence, inspirational motivation, intellectual stimulation and individualised consideration. As can be seen trust has strong conceptual connections with transformational leadership and its components. In this way, the trusted leadership perspective embraces the act of inspiring others that makes up the transformational approach. In order to inspire and motivate people, trusted leaders that take up managerial positions achieve higher levels of relationship among followers because they articulate a vision (inspirational motivation), show a special concern for people (individualised consideration), and provide a role model for ethical behaviour (idealised influence), among others.
An effective work leader should guide and help people to overcome feelings of self-doubt by being optimistic. People respond more openly to optimism and to a person of dedication and passion. They must also inspire action and be committed; always maintaining high standards. All of these traits wouldn’t be possible without confidence which is one of the most important. I believe I possess many of the qualities and traits of an effective leader.
These behavioral traits are essential in being a successful leader. Organizations need leaders that can work with their employees, build team work and be open to new ideas, (Lawler, 2003). In order for progress to be made, employees need to believe in their leader, and in turn, the leader needs to believe in their employees. Trust is obtained through mutual respect, building that bond of commitment to insure organizational success, (Lawler, 2003). The employees will follow a leader that promotes a positive attitude and enjoys expressing their ideas and stories.
A good leader must be faithful to his team and activities which will create an atmosphere of assurances with the team. A leader’s faith and knowledge in their self abilities and the world around them will help them gain inspiration and inspire others. As I work through my own challenges to become a great leader I hope to become a great leader who leaves a positive imprint on the people I lead.
Improving: Leaders who are loyal to their organizations want to invest time and effort to improve their teams. They focus on learning and improvement for the organization. They are proactive in envisioning, adapting, and leading change. Success through team work is also an important principle discussed. In order to be an effect team you must have trust, communication, loyalty, selfless service, respect, and discipline.
How do you define leadership? I define leadership as to have the drive to nurture and make a positive difference to motivate your employees also to engage in good communication skills. Learn to contribute our knowledge, skills, creativity and talent to create an atmosphere where brilliant minds can stand united. Try to see things from the other person’s point of view and acknowledge their feelings because they are counting on you to get things done as a leader. Self-assurance and they should be held to a very high standard when making decisions.
An effective leader must be respected by the members of his or her group in order to perform effectively. Another aspect of leadership includes leadership traits such as being influential and inspirational. There also different contexts of leadership, e.g, leading oneself, leading other individuals, leading groups, leading organizations. Some traits that are often associated with being an effective leader include a measure of intelligence, high energy, self confidence, dominance, and a need for achievement. An effective, charismatic leader must lead by example.
Service: an effective leader humbles them self to be of service to their team. They must have and feel the supported. The leader must readily offer the tools needed to do their jobs well. It is also rewarding to be recognized for their efforts. That is all part of a leadership which serves the team, and not the opposite.
Leading a team to achieve a goal provides a satisfaction knowing that others have been empowered and in doing so, authentic leadership has been fulfilled. Impact of transformational leadership in the organisation According to Pearson (2012), transformational leadership “ushers in radically positive possibilities so needed today to release the potential within situations and people, including the leader”. To be a transformational leader, you must have: • charisma which will encourage employees to follow your vision, act with conviction, have clear values which are demonstrated, be a role model and a leader who can be trusted; • inspirational and can articulate the vision of the organisation with precision and in a persuasive
