  • Setting our team for success is key. The way our leader guides us is important so that when they are not around they know that the tasks are getting done properly. They also must be willing to accept change that is happening. A lot of newer generation will do things completely different than of the older generation. They must be able to learn and adapt tp how others learn and take what is taught.

  • As a leader, I try to be a servant leader not only to my members but also to the entire division. A servant leader possesses personal integrity, is optimistic and is humble. A servant leader puts the wellbeing of others before themselves. They have to be active listeners so they truly understand what their members need or desire on a personal and professional level. They have to have to be receptive to other member’s ideas. They are constantly observing what is going on so they are able to seek the truth and make changes as necessary (Scott, 2017). Becoming a servant leader is capable if an individual is self-aware and willing to change their current practices. However, it will improve them, their unit and the agency as a whole. Servant leadership creates a positive environment.

    • I agree, that servant leadership creates a positive environment. It shows that you are willing to change or adapt what is going on around.
