In my career, I have learned and experience as a leader the best results you will achieve from your team is to developed them individually through tasking with a clear defined direction and provide them support and positive feedback during and after the completion of their project. This affords them the growth opportunity to grow and develop their individual leadership skills while working on the project. This allows them to apply their individual thoughts and merge them with the direction provided to gain a sense of empowerment and buy into the project for you as their leader have entrusted them to do this. This is a key part of the process in developing and mentoring your team members on the path to becoming a future leader. I have always afforded and made them even with being multi-tasked with deadlines to work with and mentor my team members to develop their leadership’s skills since they are the future leader of the organization.
Science is a hard topic for students connect with since most of the time its either you love it or you hate it.

I am seriously thinking about becoming a teacher because of my experiences in her classes. If I could do for one person what she did for me, then I would feel like I had done my job well. The things I learned in her class have stayed with me and influenced many of the things I have since done in my writing and personally. She taught me how to use writing to understand my own problems, which was the first step for me as a writer. I now try to use writing to illustrate the problems of others and the strange situations people are put into in this culture.
And when it comes to leadership I think actions are what count. In this sense I aim to energize and encourage those around me. Setting an example of the behavior to be emulated can be a method to clearly communicate what is expected. And as we have established in this course, communication is central to leadership. It includes how the leader speaks, listens, and learns.
I must focus on how to improve, seek help when needed, and try to do something new or different when I fail. Being a creator I must accept responsibility, as well, for all the results good or bad which means accepting my strengths and weaknesses. Successful people do not blame, complain, and makes excuses, instead, they take responsibility to the situation, make a plan, and take action to improve the situation which leads us to making wise decisions. If I make wise decisions I am more likely to reach the goal that I want. Creators always think positively and look for a better way.
Leadership is an intangible quality found in people that can make a serious difference in an organization and have tangible results. This paper will be about me, and will be another step in my development as a leader.

This reflection helped me discover the strategies I need to adopt to build positive relationships with my students. In second phase, I articulated my own learning that I gained through narrative enquiry of the journal entries. In final phase, I explored the moments when I led my students’ and learning in order to create a sense of belongingness to a learning community. 1) Phase I: Build Positive relationship: Going through the narratives of my daily reflections, I realized that every moment in the classroom teaching was important for me and I wanted to discuss those events in my journal entries.

I learned a lot about how I need to study and manage my time in order to complete the projects by the due dates. I learned that sometimes I really could get into “the zone” and get a lot of work done through working for a few hours. Some nights I can have a hard time focusing, and end up watching YouTube videos instead of researching or writing my essay. I think this is because of what I do throughout the day. When I go work out and do well attending my classes I have a much easier time focusing on my homework.
