Personal Leadership Philosophy
Writing your Leadership Philosophy
To develop a leadership philosophy, my suggestion is a three-step process.
Step 1: Select an admirable leader
One of the first things you might want to do is identify someone you admire as a leader. This person can be a historic figure or a current one leading a company, community, or university. Political leaders are options, too. Identify what you admire about this person. Be specific.
• What traits make them stand out?
• What have they done or are doing to be an admirable, respected leader?
• What type of working relationships have they built?
• What are their exceptional leadership attributes and imperfections?
Understand what you like about their leadership style and results and why you admire them
