Values, Principles, Purpose

I am a leader who believes in service, action, and purpose

I believe that the idea of leadership and service are inextricable. To lead is to serve and to serve is to lead. As a leader I am at the service of the team and I am responsible for helping others feel supported and appreciated. To do this, there first has to be an organizational vision. This vision should be openly shared with team members and should inspire others to take action. 

I am a leader who believes in values

For effective leadership it is essential to have honesty, respect, accountability, and teamwork. The team and I should reciprocate the values identified. Additionally, it is essential that I serve as a role model and do the right thing even when no one is looking. As a successful leader I strive to cultivate accountable team members, which will ultimately push them to their greatest potential and also motivate me as a leader to improve. For effective accountability to take place, it is important to clearly define the roles, goals, and expectations of the team and myself. Ultimately, establishing these values at the beginning of the team relationship will strengthen the rapport between members and promote positive team dynamics.


I am a leader who takes a strength-based philosophy

I believe that the most effective leaders are consistently striving to invest in strengths within their self and the team members. I strive to understand the needs of my followers and provide opportunities for members to strengthen their unique skillsets. In order for this to occur it is necessary for me to spend time with my team members and get to know what drives, motivates, and inspires them. When good relationships are built then I can utilize individual strengths to build a well-rounded team.


I am a leader who believes is continued growth, empathy, and self-awareness

I believe that self-reflection and seeking continuous improvement is necessary for all great leaders. As a leader I have the ability to develop the skills of my team members by providing autonomy and promoting individual creativity. For this to be accomplished, it is essential that a supportive environment be created so members can effectively contribute their ideas to the vision of the organization. Additionally, by displaying emotional intelligence and putting myself in the shoes of others, I can better understand and manage members concerns.
