I feel as though I model the way for many people throughout everyday life on and off the field. I model the way by making wise choices that I know will affects others to want better themselves. Britton stories leaning towards modeling the way motivates me to make my team better so we can all accomplish our common goal.
Leaders lead by example, to become a transformation leader, I have to be a good example and a role model to my team members. I have to learn to mentor and coach team members to be successful in their endeavors and also to be leaders.

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.
I believe that leadership evolves from those people who are willing to learn, grow and develop from those who participate in their vision. I also believe that the people I interact with can help to define some of my values. As a leader we are allowed to lead because those we lead allow us to do so.

According to me, I am still learning and trying to become a great leader. For me, the most important characteristics a leader should have is the ability to set herself/himself as an example and whom people remember for his/her good deeds.

At first I thought this was not a big deal, but I have learned from my research that it actually is. According to Dao (n.d), “self-confidence is the fundamental basis from which leadership grows.” By recognizing and acknowledging my level of confidence, I can take actions and develop skills to become more confident which will help me in leading project teams. I know that before I can be successful at leading others, I first need to become better at leading myself. Increasing my self-confidence will increase my motivation because I will have the confidence I need to go after my goals. This is how I will incorporate self-leadership into my leadership model while leading project teams.
The goal is important in my personal and professional development as well. I have selected this goal since it will help in improving my ability to take a look at the big picture in complex situations to come up with the best possible way to solve those situations. The goal will also help in ensuring that I will get to understand different people, and handle them in the right way as well. By being an effective leader, it will be easier for me to solve problems in an organization. It will also help in improving cooperation and team playing in the organization.

I also help them by serving as a mentor, to help them grow and develop. But along with these assessments, especially assessment quiz 1-2 it stated that I still need to have more experience as a leader to become an effective leader. Even though I have not done most of the Leadership experience that they listed. I do believe that I am a good leader because of the mentors’ that I had in my past.
