  • A reflective leader has to take a step back and view themselves as one too. What can I do to better my team and myself? How can help make others stronger and work on our weakness together to become one strong unit.

  • To become a reflective leader an individual has to understand their organization, become self-aware as well as know their members. A reflective leader understand the policies of the agency and has the ability to make changes to meet the goals as well as think outside of the box and stand up for changes that need to be made to better the unit or agency. They also have the ability to understand their strengths and weakness and recognize when they need to make changes. This individual is strong enough to admit when they are wrong or if someone else has a better idea then they do. A reflective leader is in tune with each of their members. They know what makes them operate, their strengths and weaknesses. This member spends more time and effort on building relationships instead of the bottom line. A reflective leader has to function in all four areas; emotional intelligence, vision of the organization, organization and team building roles, or they won’t be a reflective leader (Nash, 2017).
