This typically leads to a guilt trip, right? However, on a serious note, and partly because I need to burn off nervous energy, both physical and mental health focus makes me a sharper and more well-balanced leader. My emotions are in better check when I'm physically taking care of myself. Do not take this point for granted – many leaders fail and fall because they neglect this important aspect of their lives for too long. Practically speaking, I couple exercise with learning, so usually I'm listening to podcasts during that time. What do you do to improve this aspect of your leadership? What’s been helpful to you?
She then explained the advantages of community service, but I wondered to myself, “what can volunteering teach me and why would I not be paid for doing work?”....
What leadership means to me | good4gaia's ONE …
Opportunities to display honesty on a large scale may not happen every day. As a leader, showing people that you are honest even when it means admitting to a mistake, displays a key trait that people are looking for in their leaders. By demonstrating honesty with yourself, with your organization and with outside organizations, you will increase your leadership influence. People will trust someone who actively displays honesty–not just as an honest individual, but as someone who is worth following.
Ummah (Arabic: أمة ) is an Arabic word meaning "community"
Recent problems in our nation’s economy have caused changes in the amount of community service that is done on a daily basis, but those changes may not necessarily be what you would think.

This article was not only very informative but educating. I was recently accept in a Employee Development Program in my place of employment and currently in the 4th month of the one year program. Reading, I could not help but reflect on the current leadership within the management and how it does not reflect any of the characteristics outlined in the article. Fear, intimidation and punishment is the best way I can describe the style of leadership that is currently in management. Saidly, some of these gentlemen have gone through the same develolpment program that I am currently in. There is a small group of us that are not afraid of those in management and we all have had our share of run ins, and they know that we are not intimidated by their positions.
Though I may not be able to change the perspective of these individuals, I can only change myself. I can only improve and continously learn those traits in leadership that will help me effectively lead myself to be a better person and then become an asset within my organization. I love what I do and the organization that employs me, it not only affords upward mobility locally but on the global scale. The one paragragh that really hit home and I plan to incorporate it on a daily basis, “One of the greatest signs of someone who is truly intelligent is humility. The greater your education, the greater your understanding of how little we really understand.”
Thank again for this oppurtunity to share my thoughts and I will be visiting this website on a regular basis for learning oppurtunities
